I've suddenly developed an apparent problem with VW2009 in getting it to render beams with gobos. It seems to have happened since I installed SP 5.
I've been using VW for more than 5 years and understand the conditions required to get Renderworks to draw gobos and have checked that I'm meeting all the conditions required by the software:
Gobos have been applied from the edit button for the fixtures (they're VL3K spots) using a gobo from the Rosco breakup range (although I've tried several others, including the defaults).
The fixtures are on, in white @ 75%. They're pointing at valid focus positions.
There are valid 3D objects in the layer for the gobo to render onto.
The lit fog and cast shadows buttons are checked.
I get no output from the light (no beam and definitely no gobo) using any of my usual Renderworks settings.
I can get the fixtures to render the beams if I remove the gobo, but that's not what I'm after.
Originally I thought I might have done something silly to the drawing, but have since tried re-starting the software and creating a new drawing with only one fixture and this doesn't work either.
Anyone got any ideas what's happening?
