  1. @Kevin K on good day I can make a rectangle in marionette. Most days I stare at the myriad of nodes like a first timer at Home Depot..."so many options and I have no clue what I'm looking for..." If I could find the time I would absolutely seek out a marionette master and pay them good money to teach me how to use/think in marionette. I know the things I want to do, I just can't get there from where I am. I pointed out GSG+ and Cineversity because I feel that I have had a much better experience learning from them than from Vectorworks U. They are granular and accessible, and watching pros do their work is a really great way to learn.
  2. Vectorworks University < Greyscale Gorilla+, Cineversity.
  3. @zoomer lol. Don't get me started on marionette.
  4. @Kevin K agreed with the watering down of RS for VW. It is unfortunate that it has to be that way, there a lot of great features. I do know of what you speak with regards to nodes, I often go the simple route as well. Lumion is for mac? I don't follow the developments on that front. I would just say, that adding ANY of that type of pre-vis to VW is so helpful that it's hard to imagine we came so far without it.
  5. I have to agree, Redshift is a game changer. And while I don't think Redshift for VW would really work (how do you do all of those node based texture operations inside of vw???) I also have certainly found that Enscape is a fantastic Look/Dev tool inside of VW. Since it is also practically realtime, I can work in VW, and get a good "rough" of what's going on in realtime, and then head on over to C4D/Redshift for the real heavy duty renders.
  6. I'd like to have cloud services be able to import and export file types for the user. I don't want to tie up a computer for hours trying to import a revit file or similar. I'd like to be able to drop it into the cloud services portal and have the cloud do it.
  7. I'm trying to import a revit file and it's bogging down my computer. Can I upload a file to cloud services and have them do that for me?
  8. I'd check to see if your macbookpro is actually using the graphics card. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202053
  9. you are most likely moving the origination point for the EAP. I find that the easiest thing to do is to redraw the path you want, making sure that the first point is at the same point of your old path, convert to nurbs, and delete the old one.
  10. Are you using a sheet layer viewport to print or printing from a design layer?
  11. Try this: make your pyramid using the pyramid tool. then apply a tiny chamfer to all faces, like 1/8" of an inch. If you then convert to 3d polys, you can delete all the faces EXCEPT the chamfers. You will be left with the outline of the pyramid. Here's my example. pyramid.vwx
  12. Can AE import a .dwg? that use usually more "wireframe" than .obj
  13. use the pyramid tool and convert to 3d polys, turn the fill off, decompose each face? I'm not AE guru so I don't know how this imports for you. You could also use the create projector tool and show cone, then do a high level ungroup. Attached is my exported pyramid, after converting to 3d polys I then decomposed the polys into it's lines. pyr2.obj.zip
  14. you cannot cut it but you can put a clipping mask on it by double clicking it to edit its crop
  15. @trashcan did you look at the file I posted? It does what you want.
