    importing textures and applying

    Pat, I will check. I am pretty sure it is closed, as i was able to extrude the poly, but not sure about fill, and probably is the problem. Thanks Jim Pat, and help on this one? I did a search on importing textures and didn't find an answer. I am trying import a JPEG texture into my resource browser ???

Second I created a polygon object, extruded to 4" and have been trying to apply a texture to the face and can't. It only applies to the extruded edges appreciate any help on theses problems appreciated

    Focusing lights

    check to see if there is a curtain in the way (was my problem - the set designer put one in and it was hidden), that wasn't showing up. I deleted all the layers except lighting and stage and it worked

    applying textures

    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?

    VW to LW to EOS

    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?

    Focusing lights

    the issue is LED instruments cannot have color set in VW you need to open Nomad and DMX the color

    Focusing lights

    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

    Focusing lights

    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

    Focusing lights

    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!!
  15. 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??
