  1. Hi The Svoboda ramp exists in spotlight as "ADB Lighting HT2251", I am having trouble assigning a fixture mode (for vision), I can find the fixture under fixture mode/other... but the selection doesn't stick - it reverts to "none". I am unsure if this is a fixture issue or a 2020 issue. I have requested an updated fixture in the service select form, but I am getting the feeling that the fixture mode is being moody in 2020, see my other post
  2. I opted for manual rotation in vision, thanks @bbudzon
  3. its the same as the one you just got for the color temp issue. The Q7 fixtures are all pointing up, should be pointing down. I changed them to moving lights per the instructions from last time, but the only thing I can do is manually flip them in vision
  4. I had selected all and set them to 3200K, which had no effect. So i created a new document in vision and merged in the rig again to check for you, this time they came in correct. here is the MVR pyramid 1.1.zip
  5. So, in v2020 I am back at mixed color temperatures on import. This time its MVR... This is a bunch of PAR64 fixtures straight in from VW via MVR:
  6. Hi This problem has re-emerged for me in 2020, and setting the fixtures to moving light no longer fixes it. The flip checkbox makes no difference.
  7. yes! The column was squashed so I missed it. thank you so much!
  8. And on it goes, working with another fixture now, robe megapointe. It has randomly changed its fixture mode at some point. It was correct 5 minutes ago, all I am doing is numbering. Not touching the popup at any instance. (Not) Fun fact: all my megapointes have different modes assigned from other random fixtures. not going to flood with screenshots of it. This is a bit of a showstopper for me. Do I go back to 2019?
  9. update, this combination seems to stick for now. I should perhaps make a fixture request for a generic PAR 1k NSP with a proper fixture mode. :
  10. Hi I am trying to assign a fixture mode to 64x PAR64 NSP so I can use them in vision. This problem is new in 2020 for me, I have had all these fixtures in vision before. I use some PAR64 fixture, e.g the "Altman PAR64" as well as the "spotlight PAR 64 NSP" fixtures, it is not critical, I just need a generic PAR64 NSP for vision and my plot. When I choose fixture mode I go to other and and fish out either of the above fixture modes. After working in the document for a while, numbering for example. The fixture mode is gone again. Sometimes it will still be the only option in the fixture mode popup and I can select it again. Sometimes some random other fixture. In one instance I got the entire spotlight fixture library list in one gigantic list ( didnt make a screenshot). Letting go of the popup, deselecting and selecting the fixture will change the contents of the popup again. In any case. I can't get the mode to stick. Here are some various scenarios that occur when I try to pick a mode
  11. If I do that, in any variation, my edit layout options gray out
  12. I see. MVR not ready or Vectorworks not ready? Trying to figure out if I should start using MVR for vision or not yet. Thank you
  13. Hi I am making a simple label legend with dimmer/universe in 2020 SP1. When I go to edit the 2D fields in the label legend manager, there are no labels to layout. The fixture symbol is there and so are the the default boxes and information- They are available in In 3D fields, but not in 2D I activated the fields, activated the label legend, activated all classes and layers, made sure i was in top/plan, and still nothing. Please advise thank you
  14. ok that works, thank you. I can all of a sudden no longer change my trim height though. The option grays out when I select the system. I find myself starting over again and again, dreading that the system will stop wanting to be trimmed. I can't make out what I might have done to it. I am trying to understand the connecting (red lines) and system relationship of trusses (and also hoists). Is there a good tutorial or some documentation out there?
  15. Hello Is it possible to connect a truss to a hoist and have it move with the trim height of the hoist? cheers
  16. @C. Andrew Dunning Hi I purchased VideoScreen Plus in may 2018, but there is no 2020 version available in my downloads Please advise Thank you
  17. Hi is this just me or is something mixed up? Hidden line render in a viewport combines the 2d and 3d geometries viewport with top plan, all good viewport with open gl, also all good hidden line render combines 2d and 3d, no bueno, background render only, foreground render is off
  18. I realise now its only the 2d part (top plan view) that has become invalid. In 3d the truss is intact I DMed you the rig in question thanks
  19. Just opened a drawing I was working on (v2019 sp5) in v2020 and all my trusses say "invalid truss symbol". Just regular eurotruss from the library. I would love to know what to do about it. Do I have to redraw my rig in 2020? Thank you
  20. Hi Thanks for getting into this with me. To make it more confusing, my pyramid is hanging from above and I have a ton of stuff on it. I just got one done too. These were my steps 1. One truss arm flat on the ground, NOT hanging position. Populate and rotate the fixtures. 2. Duplicate-rotate the arm, manually flip the individual lights back to correct angles (always the y axis btw) 3. Once the arms are populated with correctly rotated fixtures, the whole system is rotated up to 45° and then to trim. Here it is in all its glory. I have actually already deployed this in shows in several venues, but for the upcoming dates I needed it drawn correctly in 3d Its definitely buggy with the fixture orientations. I will file a report somehow at some point
