  1. I made a frostum out of 3d polys and added 3d loci to the top center and front and the tip. I can snap my rotation tool even in isometric view and rotate away
  2. Adding some 3D Loci to strategic points within the frostum symbol could help. Then snap the rotation tool to these loci. You might have to enable 3D loci visibility in your prefs. Its a theory but maybe worth a shot Fub
  3. @P Retondo I will look into that. Thanks
  4. Hello Is there a way to use dynamic parameters in the OIP? For example I would like to control the extrusion depth of multiple objects. Thank you
  5. Laseranimation Sollinger have provided support for wysiwyg, dependence and capture and would be more than happy to help you with implementation as well.
  6. Hello So glad that lasers are finally a part of vision. However tying it to Pangolin Beyond is a very limited choice. Maybe thats a US thing? Are there any plans to include some more protocols? I use Touch Designer to generate Laser content and send it using AVB (Laseranimation Sollinger) or interfaces like Etherdream or Helios. At the very least some DMX controlled lasers would be great to have. I am certainly very interested to hear what the plan is moving forward. Thank you
  7. Hi Is there an offcial release date for spotlight v2022? Thanks
  8. what size and resolution should the image in the renderworks texture be?
  9. Aha! well that must be it. The missing information in the patch window is what confused me. I never went past that point before switching back to regular profiles. cheers
  10. Hi I hope this is the right place for this. I am using gobos in some profilers in vision, the projection looks ok but the beams are very low resolution. Even with the very high texture setting. What are good settings for a gobo projection image going into vision? Thanks
  11. Hi Unfortunately this is not the case for me. I did select GDTF in the MVR import dialog in vision (tried both). But there are no fixtures listed in my vision patch window. Vision recognizes the fixtures as lights, they highlight when selected, but does not populate the dmx patch. My workaround at the moment is to use similar fixtures that have the regular spotlight fixture mode, which is not optimal. cheers
  12. Hi Everything is playing nice in terms of exporting and importing mvr. However the fixtures with a gdtf fixture mode and no fixture mode, has no patch data in vision. They light up when selected but do not turn up in the vision patch window. I have also merged in fixtures, that have a regular non-gdtf fixture mode set in spotlight, and they turn up fine in the patch. Does gdtf fixture mode not register in Vision? I hope I am missing something, because I would love to use some fixture profiles from gdtf-share. Grateful for any insight.

  13. Hi It would be really useful if the grid tool had the option to add some kind of coordinates. Cheers
  14. Bump! This bug is still buggin' in VW 2021 sp3 The workaround: Set the hole size to your desired smallest dimension before changing from holes to slots. The other dimension is now editable. Convert back to holes to adjust the smallest value.
  15. This is the one I got, there are a bunch of the same out there with different brand names. Not all of them have a drive enclosure. https://www.amazon.de/dp/B08QHN3229/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_XPYNH2ZKZHZV1YMJKYKX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  16. This was my logic. It was not easy getting rid of the trashcan. And when the next batch of upgraders wakes up as new macs come out the market will flood. I think its a no brainer if you can do without all the TB ports. I got a macminishaped usb hub with a 2.5'' drive enclosure as well and have not had a single moment of regret so far even i if loved the trashcan. Best machine ever built imho.
  17. I did and have not regretted it. If you want to connect a ton of peripherals the mac mini is limited in comparison. Other than that its the most bang for your buck I have ever seen apple bring.
  18. Yep, thats definitely a thing with my mac mini m1. I never shut my computer down, only sleep. And now I amost always get a message on wakeup about my external drive not having been unmounted correctly. The drive is still mounted, annoying and potentially destructive perhaps. Here is a discussion on the subject: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/external-hdd-disks-getting-ejected-when-mbp-goes-in-sleep-mode-issues-what-is-the-best-set-up.2262778/page-2
  19. Hi I have not made any big stage drawings during the pandemic. Just smaller stuff. That has been no problem whatsoever so far. The first thing I did when I got it it was to test some previously made music stage scenes with hundereds of fixtures, truss, stage elements, 3d figures and room geometry. I have no lag rotating and navigating the scene in openGL with ambient occlusion on. The file opens quickly and plays nice. If you want me to test a file for you can DM me.
  20. As long as rendering in VW is CPU based it will always be slow. Same for C4D or any other 3D program. Fast rendering needs GPU cores, at this point you dont even get that for free in C4D. The one boost you can feel is openGL. My M1 mac mini blows my mac pro 2013/6core/32GB out of the water in 3D movement of a complex scene with openGL+ambient occlusion.
  21. Just a quick note. I just got a mac mini m1 with 16mb, installed vectorworks 2021, opened a stage design with a ton of geometry and light fixtures and took it for a whirl in open GL. Its a pleasure! The same file on my 6 core trashcan with 32mb felt really heavy in switching to open GL in a 3d and rotating around. but this little sardine can does not even flinch. And it cost under a grand. First time (in 30 years) I ever got a bargain feeling out of apple. Not going to get my hopes up quite yet, but so far this felt like a major upgrade. Who knows what rosetta bugs await.
  22. @C. Andrew Dunning I will check it out. I have your tool, just didnt have them installed at the moment Thanks
