  1. I've been stuck for hours on this! I've made a 40x5 rectangular truss structure with LED strips. I want to add that into my overall venue plan and tilt the entire structure to a 45° angle. It will live above a 40ft LED screen, so it's supposed to almost look like a slanted roof. I've tried making it a symbol but no luck there either. Help?!
  2. Hi Rob, Thanks for the response. I don't need a different color. My problem was fixed above with adding ambient light. I didn't realize that when you add a lighting fixture, it automatically assumes that's the only lighting source and defaults everything to a dark look. After adding that, everything looks far better. My fixtures still look black and I was hoping for a more realistic look, but it's not that big of a deal.
  3. Like I said, I'm new at this. What do you mean by add a directional render light? I don't see how to do that within the visualization palette? Thank you in advance!
  4. This what the Truss looks like before I add any lighting fixtures. As soon as I do that, it turns to a really unrealistic looking gray.
  5. Thanks for the response Tim. Unfortunately that didn't fix the issue. I attached a OpenGL Render zoomed in tight after I cranked up the ambient light.
  6. Hi there. I'm very new to vectorworks but have a issue I can't figure it out. All my 3D lighting fixtures are just a plain black in OpenGL and final quality rendtrworks. There's no real detail to them. Is this normal? Also, when I insert some tomcat truss it looks good. Once I add any lighting fixture to the drawing that truss suddenly becomes dark and loses it's nice detail in those two viewing options. What am I doing wrong!! I've attached an example.
