  1. Probably. I know HES implemented some sort of connection over CITP but unfortunately Vision does not support CITP; it only supports the more modern NDI protocol.
  2. @Jonathan Gould It's up to HES/ETC. HES only created a dll library for windows. They would need to create a dylib for the Mac for Vision in order for the Mac application to use HogNet natively on the Mac.
  3. Be sure you install Vision AFTER installing or updating the MA DMX provider plug-in. We have been finding that the MA installer overwrites the DMX provider installed in the Vision folder. Unfortunately we don't have any control over the MA installer so we can't prevent the files from being modified. Tech support can walk you thru the process of reinstalling Vision or manually updating the file in needed.
  4. The export command is in 2019 but you will have to add it to the workspace. Remember, the GrandMA 2 does not support MVR, you have to use GrandMA 3. However, I recommend using Vectorworks 2020. The MVR specifications have been updated and only Vectorworks 2020 complies with the new specifications that GrandMA 3 is using.
  5. @MWilson101010 The Vision console will only control the attributes of a conventional fixture that are not controlled via DMX.
  6. All the address fields sync. If you enter 2/101 into the Universe/Address field. The Absolute Address will update to 613, Universe 2, DMX Address 101. If you change any of the other fields, the other fields will update in a similar manner.
  7. The "FixtureID" field in the "Light Info Record" determines the default for the "Fixture Mode" if it exists. We do a simple string match search starting from the beginning of the string to match the FixtureID with the available Fixture Modes. If there is no match or partial match the fixture mode will be set to None. If you are having issues keep in mind that we match from the beginning of the name. So if the mode is "Vectorworks" -"Vector" will find a match -"work" will not find a match -"Vector1" will not find a match
  8. If you are a member of Vectorworks Service Select you should use the Spotlight Fixture Request Form. https://serviceselect.vectorworks.net/support/fixturerequestform otherwise you can fill out the fixture request form on the Vision page https://www.vectorworks.net/en-US/vision Please request a specific fixture mode in needed for each fixture. Active Vision Pro users receive priority service so be sure to include your serial number in your request so we can verify your license status.
  9. We believe this happens in some file contains more than about 10 Label Legends in the document. You should see the fix in an upcoming service pack. VB-167028
  10. Since NDI operates in real time you can not export a movie from Vision and have the NDI input sync to the recorded DMX. You can do 2 things, If you don't need super high quantity you can use screen recording software or an external capture device to record the screen. (This is how we make most of the instructional videos.) If you need higher quality your best option is to convert the NDI stream to a video file and use the video file as the source. Vision can sync the video file when exporting to a movie.
  11. No. It's probably better to use sACN is you have the command wing.
  12. Check the permissions on your plug-ins folder. By default the entire application folder is read-only.
  13. @fuberator We are searching our office for similar hardware so we can test and see if it's something hardware specific. One more thing to try. Try switching out of dark mode. If it works OK then try switching back to dark mode and see if the problem still exists. There was a strange issue with dark mode that solved itself by going into light mode and did not return when we switched back to dark mode.
  14. @TomWhiteLight This may work but probably will not stay when the object is modified. The object looks to the settings created by the menu command because there are multiple text objects with different attributes in the same object.
  15. This is a global setting for all the hoists in the document. In the Default Spotlight workspace the text size for the Hoist Number and the Dimensions are set with a menu command. Spotlight>Hoists>Set Hoist Number and Dimension Display.
