  1. I find myself switching between Vectorworks and Vision quite often. Particularly when coming up with a new design or concept, so the ability to quickly and easily do this without losing saved views and global properties is a must. Also when coming across the problem of fixture addresses stopping working there is often a bit of back and forth to find an address that works. The most ideal situation would be for Vision to be built in Vectorworks, so there is no application switching and any update that is made in Vectorworks is automatically updated in the visualiser.

    Hey guys Just to update, I have run Update Libraries within Vision and while running Vision as administrator in Windows and it is still missing. Cheers, Dan

    GLP GT-1

    Hi Rob I have run the Update Vision and Update Library commands within Vision and still the same issue. Could this be because I can't get the GT-1 fixture library in Vectorworks? Cheers

    GLP GT-1 fixture library

    Ah yes, perhaps you are correct. I am in Australia. Can anyone from Vectorworks confirm that might be the case?

    GLP GT-1 fixture library

    Hi Mark Thank you for your tips. Unfortunately both those things are enabled. Strangely my list of Service Select fixtures is a lot shorter than yours.. And this is the list of GLP fixtures I have which is in the Vectorworks Library as opposed to the Service Select Library. Cheers, Dan
  7. Ah, I didn't try restarting Vision. Good to know. Cheers, Dan

    GLP GT-1

    Hello I am using a rig of GLP GT-1's. I have downloaded the latest GLP fixture library from Service Select but when using this fixture it does not have a fixture mode to use in Vision. Can anyone help with this? Cheers, Dan
  9. Hello I am having some issues with the fixture library. I am trying to use a rig of GLP GT-1's in Vectorworks and Vision, there are two issues here. The first issue is the GT-1 does not appear in the fixture library but it is in the GLP package found in the Service Select download section of the website. If I download this package and copy it to the Objects - Ent Lighting Instruments folder replacing the original GLP.vwx file the GT-1 does not appear in the library. If I open the GLP.vwx file I downloaded it contains the GT-1. Why is the fixture in the file but does not appear if I copy the file to the Objects - Ent Lighting Instruments folder? A workaround to this is to open the GLP.vwx file alongside the document I am working on, go to Resources and import the fixture from the GLP.vwx file into my document. This imports the fixture to the document I am working on but it is missing a fixture mode to use in Vision. Can anyone help with either of these issues? Cheers, Dan
  10. @bbudzon I have emailed you. Cheers, Dan
  11. No worries. I will share my Vectorworks and Vision files with you. What is the best email address for this to send you a Dropbox link? I will also contact techinical support. Cheers, Dan
  12. Occasionally a light will not respond correctly or not at all. Currently I am experiencing this issue with one Mythos in a rig of 16. I occasionally lose control of the zoom. The way I have fixed it is by changing the address of the fixture in Vision and on the console. I have tried many things below to try and figure out what is going on and none have fixed the issue: - Tried it on two different consoles (MA2 and Chamsys) to confirm that the issue isn't the console - Have re-Sent to Vision from VW - Have deleted the fixture in VW and replaced with same fixture, same address etc and re-Sent to Vision - Have tried different fixture modes in VW and on the console, re-Sent to Vision - Copied a working fixture, changed the address and re-Sent to Vision It is only when I change the address within Vision or VW and also on the console that it begins to work. This may happen a few more times over the following days, each time it is the same light and I have to choose an address I haven't used before. If I go back to one of the original addresses (that stopped working) it simply doesn't work, either doesn't zoom or doesn't come up at all. I have confirmed there is no clashes in addresses. A similar issue has happened with a GLP X4 Wash where it wasn't outputting blue, the other 3 were. I checked all the things above, different console, fixture modes, deleted the fixture and replaced it, copied a working one, even address a working one to the non working address- the working one worked on that address but the non working one didn't. It seems that certain fixtures at certain addresses get tainted so they can't be used any more.

    DMX Controls

    I looked in Vision Help and I can't find anything about saving cameras to numbers 1-9. Can I just not see it?
  14. The ESC layer thing as been good and it has cut down on the number of times I have to readjust some of the global parameters. However, I often still lose the saved cameras and global parameters. It seems to reset the parameters and saved cameras. Also, when I delete the layer with the lights in it, the models of the lights disappear but the beams are still present, which means they are still patched. If I then remerge an updated esc from vectorworks (with for instance the mode of a light changed or an address updated) I end up with duplicates in the patch- every light is patched twice. Am I doing something wrong here? Cheers, Dan

    Vision objects in Spotlight

    Hi Edward Thanks for the importing ESC into Vision tip. This will improve my workflow significantly. Regarding the Vision Object Libraries, can they be imported into VW? I can't see an option to import max or esc files. Cheers, Dan
