  1. Hi Is there a translucent or transparent material I can use in vectorworks and bring into vision, that is compatible with shadows? As soon as I turn on shadows in vision, my transparent surface becomes opaque and stops any light from shining through. I have a transparent deck with lights under it. For presentation purposes I would rather not delete the surface and have the talent stand over a hole. It looks perfect with shadows off, but the rest of the lights obviously look better with shadows on. Cheers

    Not finding the correct Fixture Modes

    Hi I have a follow up question to this. I was going to request the same fixture (I have service select). And it made me wonder, does the fixture requests made by other people populate in my library automatically, or in the service packs, or how does that work? Thank you

    got it, thank you!

    Simulating lasers

    cool! I took a source4, added a pinhole gobo and pumped up the candela and beam multiplier to some preposterous number. Its showing promise but I am having a hard time controlling falloff or some other choking parameter. Depending on the viewing angle, different parts of the beam is invisible
  6. Hi I have some ETC source four lustr with a 15-30° zoom. I would like to see them at 30° in vision, but I can't seem to figure out which parameter in VW controls this Thanks for advice

    Simulating lasers

    Lemme know how it pans out. It would be immensely useful for me as I have static lasers and mirrors in this show. I hope to take time to figure out how to build my own, but right now its battle mode. thanks

    Simulating lasers

    Hi @bbudzon I dont want to turn off my fixtures in vision, so my only option is to create a fixture with infinitely small geometry (or just locus) with a narrow beam or gobo. Would you have any ideas where to start with such an undertaking. I have never built a fixture before Cheers!

    Simulating lasers

    hi Indeed, having the effect on a dimmer channel in the desk would make it actually useful. I can make the cues and just patch in a relay/dimmer pack in its stead. I would want to make a very small geometry that uses a needlepoint gobo. Is it possible to make a fixture request for this or is it too niche? Otherwise was thinking to modify an etc source 4. It has the right gobo setup, and I would just replace the geometry with a locus. Is this the way, or should I start from scratch?

    Simulating lasers

    Hi I know vision has no support for lasers, but in this case I have a static beam hitting a mirror. I was hoping to simulate this beam coming on by adding a geometric object and controlling its visibility. It only needs to be there, or not be there. Or perhaps create two simple fixtures with a green narrow beam, one at the origin and one at the mirror. Later I would replace this with a real laser on a relay. Looking for ideas.... Cheerio

    Vision default color temperature

    Hi I know right? Its quite creative I just did a test. MVR does not mix up the temperatures. Unfortunately using MVR has not worked well with the file I am working with. Slow export, incomplete etc so I am stuck with ESC for now. Another VW employee has kindly offered to help me figure out MVR in another thread. Is MVR replacing ESC?
  12. Hi Vision assigns a mix of color temperatures to imported fixtures. Megapointes, Source 4 and others get either warm or cold beam assigned in no particular order. I can set them all to the same by just re-entering the value in the color temperature field in vision, but I prefer not to have to touch anything in vision since I re-import frequently. Here is an example of the different whites on some of the aforementioned fixtures, this is true for highlighting in Vision as well so definitely no dmx coming in Does anyone know what this is about, am I missing something? Thank you

    MVR vs ESC

    Hi Jesse I will PM you the file

    MVR vs ESC

    Hi I am exporting ESC for Vision (a large scene, lots of geo and fixtures), and that is slow, but the same export to MVR is unworkably slow, same goes for the import in vision. As I am writing this, vision is basically not responding in the background (cheweing on the MVR), and in a moment I will force quit it and import the ESC. Everything up to date and latest versions. Tried both on Mac and Win. Is this the way it is, or am I doing something wrong?

    Simplified truss color

    @scottmoore that sounds great, would you share an example? I am using black truss in this particular rig. So its not critical. Cheers
