  1. VW 2018 What I want to do is apply a texture to a 4'x8' flat -1" thick, created with the wall tool - using the resource manager. I have done it before, but for some reason this time it only applies the texture to is the edges of the object, not the face. I select the object, then double click the texture from the RM, and it shows on the edges. I have gone into the OIP and tried different settings in the render tab, but none make it apply onto the face of the flat. Tried Fast Renderworks and open GL. Second question - how do I get custom textures, like JPEGs, into the Resource Manager?
  2. No one is exporting addresses from VW to LW???
  3. I am trying to make this process work smoothly. I am putting all my instrument info in channel and address in VW to send to LW, so i can send the patch to my Ion from LW, but I can't get it to work. I have John's instructions on the importing into LW from VW, but it won't send address into LW. If I put the info into dimmers then it will go into LW - then I have had to copy and paste the dimmers into address to send to my Ion. AND the the funny thing is with live on between LW and VW LW will update the VW info to channel and address and empty the dimmer info in VW??? I am really confused I can't export VW address to LW address. What am I missing?
  4. the issue is LED instruments cannot have color set in VW you need to open Nomad and DMX the color
  5. these are ETC S4 LED Lustrs - in the OI palette there is only one option to set color and it is set at R80. I checked edit light palette and still only one color option. fixture mode in the OI is correct Baffled - maybe a call to vision tech support isi n order
  6. but another one popped up. I set the colors of the instruments in VW to R80 - but they are not blue in Vision?? they are NC - new to this vision thing
  7. 2018 in both VW and Vision Found the problem - there was a curtain in the drawing the set designer sent me that wasn't showing as active on any layer. I deleted all the layers except lighting and it works!!
  8. I was under the belief that if you set a focus point in VW and focused standard fixtures on it, sent it to Vision, when you brought up the fixture it would be focused on that spot. I can't get it to work. Am I mistaken in this??
  9. that seems to have solved the problem :-)
  10. It froze again, this time with only the laptop open - external monitors not connected. Attached it the full report. DxDiag.txt
  11. I was gone for about 30 minutes - my VW was open on my computer. I came back to the message "Vectorworks 2018 Application has stopped working. :-(
  12. I haven't tried that as I usually have LightWright up on one screen, and some times Vision on the third. I prefer using VW on the 24" monitor instead of the 15" laptop screen. Will take some to find out if it does this with just the laptop. But I do know that I have had the opening problem when just booting the program up with no external monitors.
  13. Not responding was until i forced the close. One time I was away from the computer for 3-5 min The freeze while open - sometimes unfreeze after a minute or so and sometimes never unfreezes
  14. I am having two problems with 2018. Many times when I boot it up for the first time after starting either of my laptops it freezes into "VW not responding", so I have to task manager close it and retry. Sometimes it will take more than 2 tries to open it. The second is that it freezes when I am in the program. I does this on both my Dell & HP laptops. Both are Win 10 and are gaming computers, so they have big graphics cards in them. Nvidia GTX 1050 & 1060 any ideas
  15. Is there any way to edit the human figures in VW ? I am looking for a way to put costumes on the figures for our costume designer, or a way to create and import them into VW
