  1. Hey hey It seems to happen with new files too. Create 2+ sheet layers, drop in a device, edit color or label, then with the Device Tool > eye dropper click on device. Go to another sheet layer with same type of device added, use Device Tool > paint bucket.....but nothing happens. It seems when changing between layers the Device Tool's copy/paste (eye drop/paint bucet) connection becomes broken.
  2. Hey hey I noticed that the eye dropper inside CC device tool seems to break reference when copying (eye drop) from one sheet layer to pasting (paint bucket) onto another sheet layer. Can anyone confirm? Any help on this? Cheers -Nick
  3. Got it thanks. Ok I've been changing my work patterns for this. But I came across something else that seems relatable to this topic. I've been making my schems on sheet layers for breakout rooms and then duplicating the sheet layers. The changing of sockets and connections are different from layer to layer however location data is getting changed all the same between layers. Ex. I change the "Room" text on a projector in room 101A, and then all the same projectors get that text too even though they are on different sheet layers. It seems like device labels are disconnected but location labels are somehow linked. How can I associate a device per room?
  4. Hey hey I'm pretty sure this isn't a bug since what I have doesn't work in previous versions but I wanted to point out the disconnect with this process and using other workspaces. I start by making a device and saving it to the database and as a symbol. Then I decided to move a socket and add a image to the device. I did this through the edit 3D symbol, made my changes, exit symbol and found that there were no updates to the existing placed devices. Placing a new device would have the changes and I could go about making new edits but again no updates to the existing placements. The whole practice of making/using symbols would be to make changes once and all new/existing objects would be referenced. At least this is how lighting devices, truss, etc works. Is this a bug or is the programming logic not implemented here? I really don't want to change all my existing devices one by one. Cheers -Nick
  5. Hey Conrad, The file is 700mb so I just attached a screenshot with reproducible instructions. Somehow a program restart fixes the connecting (Sometimes). Let me know if you can reproduce. Cheers
  6. Hey everyone, Has anyone come across the problem of moving or shuffling connected devices around and their connections break or stay in one spot or unable to be edited? I even have external sockets that cannot be connected to, even when using the 'connect selected' command. Basically, if I move anything around after being connected I have to start all over again. What's the fix to this? Cheers
  7. Hey hey Besides Duplicate along path/array with LED panel symbols, I would like to be able to make curved LED walls. There are a lot of flexible displays coming around in my designs so the easier VW can make this the more time I can save. This is also very useful for previz so that I can take in NDI video on video surfaces.
  8. @Kevin K Hey hey Unfortunately I can't post this file for help - active NDA. *.mvr is the file format that exports into Vision, this is the new thing VW/Vision are moving into. As for the meshes, they are a custom truss that import in as meshes, trying to simplifying them only causes the objects to disappear. I'd like to convert them to a polygon or something simpler to work with. Currently the dwg conversion is running my vwx at 350+Mb, so not great for any work. Dwg files converted seem to be so bad that running purge command runs up my RAM and eventually crashes. I'd like to get this to be a much simpler file (<20Mb), add my fixtures and information, and export it into Vision.
  9. @Art V Negative, I set VW21 OpenGL to my GPU. Restarted everything and tried some 3D. Nothing moves on my resource monitor, CPU is still the only thing that cranks away. What else should I try? (I have RTX 2070Super)
  10. I"m having issues with getting AutoCAD files into .vwx and then .mvr files. I have 2 different computers and have converted a handful of dwg files all with the same dead end. Importing the files are no problem; purging or converting meshes to reduce file sizes ends up with VW running my RAM to it's limit before eventually crashing the computer. If I don't do these processes and assign objects to classes, then exporting smaller classes to .mvr I get the same problem with RAM running up and then crashing. At this point it's only a problem with dwg/dxf files and keeps me from getting much work done. System specs: computer 1 - i7 3.0ghz 32gb RAMM; computer 2 - i7 3.4ghz 64gb RAMM. Any recommendations on how to get some work done?
  11. Hey I've been using this data cable chain tool. I'd like to request that it automatically calculates a vertical length change if fixtures have a different z height. Also cable universe value and fixture universe seems to be disconnected. If they are connected (like the hanging position tool) by universe cable then the values should all match up And one more thing, I'd like to search a cable by cable ID value - I'm very limited to 'position' and 'universe' Let me know your thoughts Cheers -Nick
  12. Hey hey How can I add dmx addresses incrementally based on the selection order of the fixtures? I can't seem to find a way to make my data runs easier and address based on the cable path.
  13. Thanks guys. This helps me along. I wasn't aware the ability of putting formulas in fields, that's going to change a lot of things for me. Cheers!
  14. I appreciate both of your replies. - Duplicate array is useless for me because you have to input the duplicate angle. - Using a circle as an overlay to truss seems like a workaround to a feature that should be working. But oh well that's what works for now. If I place the fixture on the circle, why does dup on path shift the fixture I placed 90 degrees from it's original placement? Then I have use the rotate tool to put it back, seems like another workaround to something that should work more straightforward.
