  1. Same issue. Uninstalled both programs, downloaded and installed vision 2019 first, then downloaded and installed Hog4PC 3.10. Opened up Vision2019, loaded show file, made sure Hognet is selected as the dmx provider. Opened up Hog4pc, made sure Visualizer is checked in the settings window of the startup window. Loaded my show file, when to network--settings--detect visualizer and still zeros. Went back to vision 2018 and it connects fine. Just not what I would like as I would prefer to run Vision 2019. Thanks for posting your comment and something to try. I welcome a conversation with your engineers. What is the best way to make contact? Glen
  2. This is a reply from High End Engineers on the forum site "Hello, we have found an issue with connecting Vision 2019 and Hog4 PC. It looks like vision 2019 installs an older version of the connectivity driver. Install Vision 2019 first, then Hog4 PC 3.10.0 and let me know if this fixes your issue. "
  3. I know. That's what is so perplexing. Not sure what it is with bootcamp which is causing the issue. I never had a problem with previous versions of Vision, but I understand that 2019 is a major re-write and that the Hogpc connector has not been updated to 64 bit, so the small loader app had to be created. I would be happy to set up another session for someone to do some more investigation. Contact me directly at goodwinltg@mac.com. Thanks, Glen
  4. Thank you for commenting. I was working with Mark E. on Friday where he took control of my computer and setup. He found that the loader file (located in the vision--dma providers--32 folder) which is supposed to help connect the 32 bit Hogpc to the 64 bit Vision. The Loader tries to start then crashes. Since the app crashed, the connection is not made. Mark spent over 2 hours working on my system trying to make it work, but could not. He copied many error report files and information and was going to ask the engineers to take a look. I would be available for another session where someone can look at my setup and see what might be causing this to happen. Thanks, Glen
  5. I have noticed too that the iris is at full close and needs to be reset to open the fixture to let the light appear. Find this mostly in vision.
  6. I have a slight update. Instead of trying to work with Vision 2019, I reinstalled Vision 2018. Saved my 2019 file, opened it up in V2018, set dmx provider to Hognet, opened Hog4pc, made sure the setting were correct before loading the show, once the show was running, went to network, and now the drop down for detect visualizers shows the ESP IP connection. Once selected, the hogpc and V2018 are connected and communicate as expected. Both programs are running on the same computer, windows 10, all firewalls and virus turned off. So, I have to assume there is something in Vision 2019 which is preventing a communication link to the HogPC. Anyone have any info which might help figure this out?
  7. I am still having connection issues. I have disabled both the firewall public and private, and turned off windows antivirus. I have removed and re-installed both Vision 2019 and the Hog pc4 version: 3.10.0 b1809. Running both programs on the same computer; running Windows 10 on a MAC using bootcamp. Wifi router generates the IP address for the computer and the Hog software uses that IP address when it fires up. Load and start the Vision program first and load my show file. Check that Hognet is selected; Lights are doing random strange flashing, which is a good thing. Start up Hog 4 and checked the Hognet upon loading to check for DHCP settings, and the Wireless adapter is selected (the only one listed). Checked the visualizer is running in the settings dialog, then loaded a new show (just to be sure my current show is not corrupt). Go to network window, highlight visualizer (which is running and online) Use the drop down for "detect visualizers" and nothing comes up other than a bunch of "0's". Have tried to type in the IP for the visualizer to force a connection and still nothing. I do not see where Vision tells me what IP address it uses, other than assuming it takes on the one from the WIFI Network. The HogPC is using the same IP address too. I have tied to use a custom IP for the Hog, using all the same network numbers, but using a different IP address and still no connection. Have tired turning off the wifi to force a internal computer IP network, buy still no connection Really at my wits end. It has to be something simple or overlooked in my set up. Thanks for any additional advice or suggestions. Glen
  8. Hello, I am having connection issues between the Vision 2019 and the Hog 4 pc running on the same computer. I am running the latest Windows 10, the Sp1 Vision 2019 and the latest Hog 4 pc and connectivity software. Upon opening the Hog program, I have made sure that the visualizer streaming is turned on. Opening up Vision and loading the show file, I make sure the dmx is set to Hognet. When I do that, a small window opens for the Hog Visualizer connection status. It eventually says "unable to connect to Wholehog" On the Hog software; I have opened up the network window, and the settings for the Visualizer. I try the drop down menu for the Detected Visualizers and nothing appears. I have manually typed in the computers IP address in the top cell and click apply and nothing happens still. I have re-installed all the software, restarted the computer, tried opening the programs in different orders, and using new show files with no connection being made I did not have these issues running vision 2018 and HogPC in the past. Not sure where the problem lies. I would appreciate any help in solving my problem. Thank you, Glen Goodwin
  9. I am working a on a show and the vender providing the gear has an Osram LED Beam; RGBW 4 in 1; moving head fixture.

  10. I have recently updated to VWsp2 and updated vision 2017 as well. After doing so, VW crashes when I run the menu command "send to Vision" Also, when I try to change the fixture under the "fixture mode" is stays as "none" and does not bring up dialog window to allow for the correct fixture type to be selected. I am running Mac 10.11.6 El Capitan and have not updated to Sierra yet. I have tried previous files which operated correctly and opened new files to try a replicate the problems of which respond the same way. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. I am trying to connect vision 17 to Hog 4 PC to start programming a show. Both are on the same computer running windows 10. Can anyone guide me on the correct settings I need to get the programs talking to each other? Thanks
  12. Yes, that is what I needed to do. I am up and running. Thanks, Glen
  13. I have recently upgraded my OS on my mac to El Capitan 10.11.2 and now my ESP vision dongle is not recognized, nor does the red light turn on. This means that the vision program will only fire up in demo mode. I have tried starting up on a remote disk using the previous OS X and the dongle is recognized; red light turns on. I am wondering what may have changed between the two OS X versions and am looking for something to "turn back on" in order for the Dongle to start working. Any help would be appreciated. Glen
  14. I have upgraded to OS mavericks 10.9.4 and am working with a dual monitor set up. One is used as the work space and the other to hold the pallets. I have arranged the pallets on the second monitor to where I like them, then quite VW, and reopened it and the pallets right where I left them. The problem is every once in a while when I return to work, the computer wakes up and the pallets have all moved to the the primary monitor. I then have to move them back to the second monitor. Has anyone else had this issue, or have some solutions to try? This is not a deal breaker by any means, just really annoying when I have to move the pallet back to the secondary monitor. Thanks, Glen
  15. Fantastic! This is exactly what I was looking for. Appreciate your help.
  16. Thanks for all that info. So based upon the "needs' of VW, what would be the ideal Mac Pro set up to get the most out of VW? 6, 8, or 12 cores-with a slower clock speeds 16, 32, 64 GB of memory Fire Pro D500 or D700? (Assume the 700 would be best) Of course budget pays into this as well. Looking for the best set up with a Performance/Cost ratio. Thanks again for the help.
  17. I am looking at the purchase of the new Mac Pro and was wondering if VW and render works benefits from the multi core processing? Trying to determine whether it makes sense to go to 8 core or not. Thanks for the help, Glen
  18. Is the new release of VW 2010 SN compatible? I understand that 2009 does have issues and there is a update forthcoming. So with the new release of 2010, I am wondering if we can now make the move to SN? Thanks, Glen
  19. Hi, I am having trouble with an error message during the install process. I get through the the serial number entry, the install starts, then I get this error message: "Error extracting: Plug-in/PDFUtilityLib.vwlibrary/Contents/Resources/Adobe81/Font/AdobeHeitiStd-Regular.otf" Does anyone have an idea what might be going on, other than a damaged DVD? I enclosed a screen shot if it helps. Thanks for the help. Glen Goodwin MAC OSX 10.5.6 2x3Ghz Dual Intel Xeon 16 GB Ram
  20. Thanks, This what I ended up doing as well. Just wondering if I missed something in the drop ceiling creation or in the PIO. Maybe align to arc or path?? Thanks, Glen
  21. Good Afternoon. I am working on a project in a ballroom with a curved drop ceiling. The File I have only has 2D information. I would like to "create" a 3D version of the room. The ceiling is made up of 2x2 drop ceiling panels and forms a dome or arch from side to side. I understand how to use the drop ceiling IPO, but how do I fit it to a curved surface? Thanks, Glen
