  1. I'm using the DELL U3818DW Display. Mac says it''s : 37.5-inch (3840 x 1600) I've has it for a few years now, so there may be better wide screens around
  2. The ultra wide has been working for me. I got a curved model. There is plenty of room for pallets.
  3. Hey All, Very new to the entire world of vision. I am using the ETC EOS console to control my vision file. I have the Martin Rush Par 2 RGBW Zoom 5 channel fixture in the file When choosing colors in EOS (by Gel color) some are close but most are way off. Is this normal? I used the GDTF fixture mode from the GDTF web site. Any help would be appreciated Thanks, Jeff Miller Attached is the view of L139 mixed in the fixtures (Don't think so) Also attached is the EOS console breakdown of the color
  4. Hey All, i boot camped my Mac book pro, installed windows 10 and HOG 4 PC. I have vision running on my Mac Pro. They are connected together with a CAT 5 Cable. NADA. Can someone walk me thru this? Is this even possible. Has anyone done this? Hog PC says to use he Hog Net but that is not available on a MAC machine. What are my workaround options? I'm okay with computers but this IP address stuff is not in my wheel house (totally lost) Thanks in Advance. Jeff
  5. Hey All, MAC user here During this Covid-19 hell I want to learn how to program a Hog Console unless the Grand MA is a better choice. (y'all tell me) I have a MAC book pro i want to run bootcamp on to use the HOG pc or Grand MA software. I will use my Mac pro to run Vision. I know i have to buy windows 10 (any ideas for reliable trustworthy versions) BUT what else am i going to have to buy. (software, dongles, etc) I would like to have a few (maybe 1 to 3) DMX universes. This is strictly going to be used in vision only as a learning tool. If i ever get near real lights i will also get near a real hog to dump the show into. Thanks for the info in advance Jeff Miller
  6. This is kooky. I wonder why it only accepts input as mm. It completely ignores any measurement designation ( ", ', mm, m). The documentation requires updating for sure. Jeff Miller
  7. I have found that if I split (redraw) the object into multiple pieces like you suggested it seems to work. At least i hope it does ,the dimensions appear to be the same when unfolded and put back together? Thanks bcd Jeff
  8. I am wondering if an object like this can be unfolded. I need to make a pattern to cut this out of vinyl. It is one of a handful of shapes i need to unfold. Been at it for a bit now with no good results Of course it had to be done yesterday. Jeff UnfoldMe.vwx
  9. check the reply from KLinzey I am going to try that option later today BTW Thanks Kevin Jeff
  10. I created a DMX Patch using the VW DMX Patch Menu item. It works great. I want to send this information to Lightwright 6 What fields do i link & not link to LW & VW to keep this information intact. I am overwriting info or its just being ignored, This user U Dimmer, User Address, Universe/Address, Absolute Address, DMX Address is driving me nuts. Screen shots appreciated Thanks, Jeff
  11. It may have something to do with soft shadows. Be sure that item is UN-Checked Jegg
  12. I need to get the Z height of a point load programmatically. It doesn't seem to respond to the normal calls. Any clues? TIA Jeff Miller
  13. I would like to add a calculate-able (is that a word) weight to a few existing symbols i have. They are not lights, but relate to rigging hardware. How does on go about adding a weight to a symbol and assuring the it indeed does attach to the truss structure when adding the symbol. I have tried to select the symbol and "Add point loads at Selection". this adds the weight but does not attach it to the truss structure. Any clues would be helpful Jeff Miller
  14. Truss crosses are a bit odd. and seem to appear on their own sometimes. I have copied objects and (not the truss cross) and pasted into a new drawing only to have the truss cross appear and connected to nothing. I delete the truss crosses, and sometimes they will reappear Jeff Miler
  15. Thanks guys i will try those options Jeff
  16. So what’s the trick to fixing that? delete redraw, restart, etc? i have this problem too Jeff
  17. I need to hang some scenery from a braceworks rig. I know it’s dimension and weight and pick up points. How does one convert this piece so braceworks will recognize it and calculate it into the load report. Do I just use a dead load tool or is it more complicated since it will be picked up by multiple points. i don’t have the ability to determine each point load but it’s a scenic Item weighing about 300 lbs over 4 points. It’s uniform in construction. Thanks, Jeff
  18. The tomcat 2020 blocks are made for “L” “T” & “X” I had to make the pass thu block “<>” to complete the collection. And yes one must put truss at all available sides of the corner block being used. Thanks for the responses. Maybe VW can add this topic to their help files. Jeff
  19. Yes I see that now. Thank you for responding so quickly. Just another Braceworks newbie stumbling along. 🙂 Jeff
  20. So how does one make a square grid of truss or an "L" shaped truss? There has got to be some way to do this. Just because I have a corner block doesn't mean i need all 4 sides. I'm new to this braceworks stuff. Can i edit a TC2020 Corner block somehow to only want to see 1, 2, 3 or 4 sides that want connections. Thanks, Jeff
  21. Is there a trick to getting stock corner blocks to work. I am using the Tomcat TC2020 Truss library. Connecting a bunch of trusses works fine BUT As soon as I add a TC2020 corner block into the mix all I get are errors. No connections, etc, etc. I have a grid that is god awful big and uses a ton of corner blocks. Even in the simplest layout the Tomcat TC2020 corners do not work. It looks like they connect but i don't think they are. I need 20.5" x 20.5" truss and eventually 12" x 12" truss to work in grids. Any Clues? And of course I am on a deadline. Thanks Jeff Miller
  22. Has anyone used an ultra wide monitor 21:9 with Vectorworks? are there any downfalls to using one? Any suggestions on a particular model to get? I’m thinking of pairing one with a new Mac Pro. im involved in the entertainments including construction and rendering Thanks, Jeff

    Mac pro

    Thinking about investing in a Mac Pro. Is it overkill for VW designer or will I see a difference over an I Mac 2014. I do a lot of rendering and complex lighting scenic drawings Jeff Miller
  24. I have some graphic oddities at times (open GL) and some ghosts (objects that have been deleted but still appear there). I'm just wondering if there are video card updates in Mojave that might help this? Happy Holidays Jeff
  25. So Jim Wilson, Mojave Upgrade ? YES ? NO? I have a bit a downtime right now Jeff Miller
