  1. Thanks for your reply @bbudzon i hope your family is okay! Disabeling PSN worked for me. The black square is gone. Thanks a lot!
  2. 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
  3. @klinzey Thanks for quick reply! It solved the problem, to reinstall vision. Thanks a lot!
  4. 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
  5. Hi all I am currently trying to build a couple of GDTF fixtures, to work with vision. I will need the animation whell to work. Specifically I am trying to build the Rosco X-Effect. I don’t seem to get any rendering of the animation wheel. Looking and copying settings from other GDTF models, I still don’t get any rendering. After a bit of investigation, looking at other GDTF models, I don’t seem to have luck with any animation wheels in any fixtures. See attached screenshots of the Robe Esprite. It renders gobos fine. Also multiple gobos on top of each other. Has anyone experienced the same? It seems like animation is not yet implemented in Vision / GDTF? I did get the Martin Encore to work, but the model is a “original” vectorworks / vision symbol. Best from Mathias
  6. Thanks a lot for your great reply @Projx_CA I have never used Symbol maintenance, will take a look at that.
  7. Thanks for Reply. How do I get an overview of that?
  8. Hi all I keep running into a situation, not being able to change the symbol name of custom lighting fixtures in the Instrument summary. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have made a demo file with a custom fixture, drawn completely by me. It works fine, and the name follows the one in my resource manager. However, I tried to copy a S4 36dg. The copy seems to interact with the original, both in the count, and the name. Even after changing names in resource manager, and the symbol name in the OBJ. I guess I am missing a point here.

  9. Thanks for your feedback! I made a request for the fixture at your request site. However I guess both solutions will take some time to implement. Do you have any idea about how busy your colleagues are in the fixture request? We are working full speed in pre. vis at the moment. 🙂
  10. Hello everyone Are any of you also experiencing problems with the shapers of the Mac Ultra performance? It seems that they don't have any impact at the beam. See attached screenshots. I use the GDFT fixture, that are available online. Best from Mathias
  11. Thanks for a great and clear answer bbudzon! It makes a lot of sense, and I believe you are right, that most often I dont need fixtures to cast shadows. At the moment we are working on the file at a Windows system, with a GTX 3080 graphics card, that does a pretty god job in performance. The screenshots are from my MacBook Pro, that struggles a bit more. However it seems like a god performance upgrade to use objects, and not Objects & Fixtures. It is interesting with the GDTF fixtures, and the edits to come in this area.
  12. Thanks a lot Jesse. I also found Sebastian at YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5FCBswShIbv3dKLipLSVPg He has some videos.
  13. Yes, it works when I disable shadows. However I usually have a set-design to interact with, so I need shadows. A work around for the JB P18 was to disable shadows for fixtures. This solves the problem to. But since the problem keeps coming up, I hoped to find a better solution, or at least make my own GDTF files for the fixtures I use often. I will send you the MVR file directly. 🙂
  14. Hahaha.. You are right.. I filmed off the screen, with my phone. Old school screen capture 😆 I am not allowed to upload GDTF files to the forum. But put them in my dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0aglrzzo93vnesr/AACJEaNhg9SEkspL27rZvX6da?dl=0
  15. Hi I am having some issue with the Martin Mac Ultra Performance, and the Aura PXL GDTF files. It seems some geometry is in the way of the lens. I tried to move the emitter away from the lens, but it don't seem to solve the problem. Are any of you seeing the same behaviour? Here the Mac Ultra only has a ring of light. When tilting and pacing it changes. The PXL does kind of the same. It has small flickering when moving. IMG_2470.MOV
