  1. Help! 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? VW 2009 SP5 MacBook Pro Intel Core 2 2.33Ghz 2 GB Ram
  2. I'd love to be able to draw curved drape objects in Spotlight. Corner blocks and angled gates for spotlight would be nice too!
  3. I just realised that it might be hard to visualise what I'm saying. If anyone is interested I can mail a jpeg of the render so that you can see what I'm talking about.
  4. I've been working on a spotlight drawing and have this strange problem with tapered line artistic renders. I have several instances of a symbol I made myself in the drawing most of which are rendering up fine, but i have a couple of instances on the downstage edge which seem to have gone mad! It's almost as though two square panes intersecting at 45 degrees have been added to the symbol. Strangely if you move the symbols further up or down stage they render fine, it just seem to be in one specific band accross the drawing. Anyone had this problem and know how to fix it? I'm using Vectorworks 12.5 on a MacBook Pro Intel Core Duo.
