  1. Hi all I am opening this again. I think I have the same problem. Usually when I import a DWG file, I get lots of diagonals forming triangles. The 3D looks okay, but the 2D plan gets quite messy. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a basic understanding of DWG that I need to read into? Here you see the floor highlighted. And here a simple I-Beam from top view. Best from Mathias
  2. Hi all I am as well trying to apply a texture to a door frame. I get that I can do it by class. However I don't seem to get any class options, for doors and Windows. What am I missing here? When I change the fill color my door frame changes color. But where do I apply textures? Best from Mathias
  3. Hi @Mark Eli I will share my file with you in your mail. I found out, it changed when turning up the quality in the preferences. It happened a couple of times after that, but after changing the quality up or down all objects came back. I got your point about using layers. For this project we are currently sketching. So making 81 layers every time I import the objects was quite time-consuming.
  4. Hi all Thanks a lot for all your great and inspiring reply! Thanks @bbudzon for another great explanation on how to manage in Vision. It seems that I need to pay more attention to materials. I would believe my systems are beefy enough to run in high quality, depending on the amount of fixtures. However I work mostly in stage lighting / theater, but now as well do some museum / installation lighting and trying to find a workflow to fit both needs. Maybe it is impossible. Great point @Wesley Burrows am very happy about your inputs. I have the same experience when rendering in Vectorworks, but as you describe it might very well be my lack of knowledge. @EAlexander i have been following your work for some time now! Your work is super inspiring! I have been looking into leaning Cinema 4D. The last couple of weeks I tried a bit in Blender. But the workflow between Vectorworks and blender don't seem as semles as between Wectorworks and cinema 4D. Do you have any experience in that?
  5. I made more tests. To me it seems like there has been some changes to xForm? When trying to move an object, I t disappears. Have a look at attached screenshots. Here all DMX settings are made, except Delta X / Y / Z. When entering a delta value. The element diapers completely. Do any of you experience the same behavior? And have a solution for this?
  6. Update: I also tested with some Elation Pixelbar fixtures. It the same thing. They don't move with XForm function. My demo file is attached. Lampe flytte tests.vsn
  7. Hi Tom and Jesse Thanks a lot for your reply. I am a frequent user of Vision, and enjoy doing previs. with it. As well a am a Grand MA user, and bought the viz-key from MA, to be abto to pre-vis when not at my console. However I am not super impressed by the rendering quality, compared to what Renderworks can do. I miss being able to export more photorealistic renders, including the calculation of bounces, and reflections. If it is my lack of knowledge please let me know. However I tend to see people post renders like the ones attached. I struggle a bit on getting the same amount of detail with Vision. I mostly do theater work, and enjoy checking my angles and sketching directly in vectorworks. Best from Mathias
  8. Hello I am having some issues moving Martin Sceptron fixtures with the X form function. I tried a bunch of objects, and fixtures, and they all move fine. However the sceptron 10 don't seem to. For reference, I tested moving my floor, and a Mac Viper. They both move fine. Fixtures are imported via MVR, from Vectorworks. However I also tried to place one directly from the vision library, and had the same problem. I tried to put them into the layers, and move the layer above. But the same issue. Did any of you experience this issue? I attached some screenshots, and my showfile. Best from Mathias Sceptron array.vsn
  9. Hello all I am trying to do some renderings with Entertainment fixtures, moving lights. However I am struggling a bit on getting the right workflow. Is there a way to get different positions, zoom / fokus / color / gobos? I am looking into scenes, but they don't seem to change the positions of the fixtures. How do you work with moving lights, and renderings? All is very appreciated Best from Mathias
  10. Hi @bbudzon Thanks for your responce, and sorry for my long responce time. I ended up drawing it again in Vectorworks, instead of using the Sketch up import I got from my set designer. However I am very happy that you looked into it! Thanks a lot! I always transfer my file from Vectorworks to vision via MVR. Primary because of the better quality. Best from Mathias
  11. Hi all I am having a problem, importing a element of my set design into Vision. It contains multiple symbols, some textures and meshes. The model is imported into Vectorworks from Google sketch up. Every time I try to import, Vision crashes. Do any of you have an ide about what is happening here? Don't vision like to import object symbols, containing other symbols? I am out of ideas 🙂 Dollys for support.vwx
  12. Thanks for your reply @bbudzon i hope your family is okay! Disabeling PSN worked for me. The black square is gone. Thanks a lot!
  13. Hi @bbudzon I have read through the thread here, and i might get the same issue as @ajpen. My renders makes a black square in the top right conor of the image. Do you think there is a relation? I made my model from a MVR export from Vectorworks. When i go MAX quality, and match my resolution to my monitor, i get this resault: Have you found out moere about the problem? Best from mathias
  14. @klinzey Thanks for quick reply! It solved the problem, to reinstall vision. Thanks a lot!
  15. Hi. After a clean install of my system, and updating to Vision 2022, i get the popup i wrote about last year. I followed your guide @klinzey but the vision 2022 DMX providers folder looks right, regarding your advice. Here is a screen shot: I am using the same Vectorworks USB dongle as always. Is support for GrandMA2 net removed, or what to choose at the DMX providers dropdown? In this setup i am running from a console, directly connected to the PC, running the visualiser. Hope you can help again. Beat from Mathias
