    Help menu problem solved. However, still no gobos. I even tried creating an example in 12.5 with a working gobo and then opening it in 2008 and it still isn't working. It appears that it is not creating a lighting projector for the gobo to be projected by.

    Okay, so I just got my upgrade from 12.5 to 2008 and now I am having problems getting gobos to show up in this version. I have tried every conceivable combination of custom renderworks settings and no luck. The manual says "Have Light On selected in the Object Info palette" but I don't have a Light On box to check. There is only Draw Beam and Draw Beam as 3D solid. In addition, the only way I can get to the Help files is to open them from the Help folder in Vectorworks. The Help Menu comes up blank.

    They were not showing up at all when rendered. In a fit of desperation, I finally began resetting the custom renderworks options and by switching from Shadow Mapped Shadows" which is what the manual says the setting should be to "Ray Traced Shadow" the gobo appear. Marty

    I have recently upgraded to version 12.5 and am having no luck getting gobos to show up. I have tried everything I can think of with no success. I even went back to the manual and have gone through the set-up step by step. What am I missing? Marty
  5. Interestingly enough, yes. But why does that matter?
  6. I have just upgraded to v12.5 and am having a problem with a converted file (from v11). Even though the layers option is set for show/snap/modify others, the only layer I can access is the active one. In a new document, it works fine. Any suggestions? Marty
  7. How do I unlink layers. I can't seem to find how to do it in the manual.
  8. OK, I figured that out. But why does it block some lights and not others?
  9. I am having problems with Gobo projections with certain symbols. If I insert a gobo projector over an ETC Source 4 36? for example, I get nothing. If it is over an Altman 6x12, it works just fine. I am using instruments straight from the Resource Browser. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
