  1. hi I just converted it to nurbs, edited it slightly and then made a symbol
  2. Hi I imported step files and they were drawn very fast in openGL. I had to convert them to get rid of some geometry so i chose nurbs. Now they are very slow to update. I have to watch as face after face is drawn. How can I convert them back to something less clunky? thank you
  3. yep that was it for the sum. thank you! Still no luck with the concat command. I cant seem to get it accepted as a formula
  4. Hi, That does not give me the individual subtotals, i dont understand the result at all. Am i doing it in the wrong place (directly in the selected header)?
  5. Hi 1. Is it possible to dynamically calculate a subtotal (count*price) for each of my summarised items? 2. How can I add a string to my sums, something like: =SUM(D2) + "total $ " and =SUM(E2) + "total lbs "
  6. ok I am giving marionette a whirl thank you
  7. Hi I would like to make a smart symbol with different geometries based on data record pop-up. This is a set for an opera where a bunch of different objects will be built out of 1" square aluminium tube with plastic connectors in various configurations. I will be using a lot of these and it would be handy to be able to include the connectors and pipes in reports. I can attach a data record to each individual symbol for the connectors and thats fine, but it would really handy to have a pop-up data entry that would change the geometry in the symbol. So if I choose 3-way "T", the appropriate geometry is picked. Is it possible to store multiple geometries in a symbol and show and hide them based on a data record choice? Furthermore, I would like to report how many tubes with unit number, length and weight i have used. If I create a symbol for the pipe, how can I make it configurable? I need to be able to change the length of the tube residing inside of the symbol and later populate the record with its weight (length * material weight) I would like to learn how to approach this. Is it a marionette thing? Thankful for advice
  8. I am trying to figure out if I can fit another card on the mainboard I have, if so I will get another identical 1070 (ti) and post my findings here too my Vision machine has 1x: ASUS 90YV0BI0-M0NA00 ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced on a: Asus ROG Strix B350 Gaming Motherboard Socket AM4 ATX Hopefully this mainboard can deal with it. I have spent the whole day trying to confirm this, for an old school mac user its quite the jungle out there.
  9. @herbieherb thank you. So another identical 1070 would make the most sense then?
  10. Hi Waking up an old thread here. I have 1070 card in my Vision workstation and I want to upgrade it. Will Vision be able to use multiple different GPU's?. I have a 1070 now and would maybe add a 2080, or should I get the exact same card again, so the GPUs are identical? thank you
  11. hi setting the texture intensity to 0% made a huge impact! The real FPS killer is resolution. I have to go low and live with some heavy pixellation in order to stay over 10 fps. Interesting still that these sunstrips are so extreme. I tried another scene with a ton of lights with the same settings and I am getting almost twice the FPS the texture intensity is definitely the key to a higher framerate
  12. Hi Thank you for checking it out! I really love the haze in 2020 and it's a real selling point for me. However, even if I get to 10 fps its not going to be enough for programming a show in the visualiser, it's just too laggy. As you can see in the testfile, I have not even added any other lights yet. Is it up to graphichs card? I am using a 1070 TI in my visualiser system. If I spend a grand on a 2080, will I be able to to go full on with the haze? hazers gonna haze
  13. Hi I am using the latest update of 2020, and the 2019 version is 24.04.488631 PMing you the test file, this file works (panning around the scene) adequately in v2019, in 2020 it freezes the system if I highlight the sunstrips, and then crashes .
  14. Hi When I bring 30 showtec sunstrips or chauvet sabers into vision and turn them on, I can no longer move the mouse, complete lockdown of the whole system (tried on two separate systems). Is a there something fundamental I am missing about this kind of fixture? I have another scene with 64 par cans and a ton of megapointes, and that does not overload like this. I am curious though as to why this particular type of fixture is so heavy. ps. I opened the same scene in vision 2019 and its runs significantly smoother than 2020, even with higher settings. Another mystery that I dont understand. Thanks
  15. Hi I am using onPC and a command wing. Are there any advantages for me, over using sACN? Thank you
  16. Hi grandMA is listed as a dmx provider in vision 2020, but I cant find anything in the documentation about it. Does anyone know how it works and what the advantage over artnet/sacn is?
  17. The difference in what you get from each of the request forms is not self evident -especially if you have purchased both VW and vision thinking that they are closely connected. For me there is no point of fixture that only exists in vision and cant be positioned and configured in spotlight. I realise now that its someting you guys aqquired and are integrating. Plus mvr and gtdf happening. In the meantime how do I proceed in order to use this service in my VW/Vision pipeline. Do I just fill out both forms? I appreciate your work and time
  18. There are separate fixture request forms for vision and spotlight, which is confusing. I am unsure if this means one should make two requests for the same fixture, or if one of the forms results in a fixture compatible with both spotlight and vision. In the case of MVR/ESC (and ultimately GTDF) the fixture is not usable without the fixture mode metadata. I wish the there was only one form and or that spotlight fixtures requested would be compatible with vision as a standard. thank you
  19. Hi I requested a fixture in the online form and I got a response that it had been made. Very cool! But where is it? The instructions are to visit the SS portal, but all I can find there is the bi-monthly update packages, where its not yet added. Is there a way to get the fixture before the next fixture package comes out? Also, are the fixtures in the bi-monthlies automatically added to the SS library at some point? Thank you
  20. Hello and thanks for your reply I do not have anything connected to this machine, so protocol is whatever is default. I only use it to import geometry and then run it on a PC for programming, which works fine. This problem has occured since I first installed Vision 2020. There are no open dialogs behind or in front, and I am trying a completely empty scene, and I also tried re-installing. cheers
