  1. I do think Zoomer and others here are correct that asking VW to be backwards compatible for older versions of the OS would be economically onerous. That said, every version of VW should be able to import (at least) every previous version and Save As… as well.
  2. I know, right!?! amazing. Thanks for sharing your work Helen, it's quite inspiring.
  3. Very nicely done and just as concise as my favorite cooking recipes. Thanks also for the VW 2017 file to play with.
  4. Jim: can you clarify why 1:1 is easiest for 3D modelling?
  5. I'm guessing a class might be turned off.
  6. Really good clear visuals here Alan. Thanks for both the posted examples and the actual files.
  7. Z: thanks for the informative post. I guess a big question for me would be - how does the screen quatlity compare to my MPB retina screen?
  8. I tend to use classes for alternative design ideas.
  9. I have to say, having spent time on Naboo, Autocad's latest Beta program, their dark theme is fantastic to look at and work with. So quiet.
  10. Would it be possible to have the open files show the "Tabs" with filenames displayed at maximum possible length, with each additional open file shrinking the space accordingly, similar to the way the MacOS Finder windows populate with multiple folders open in one window? I, for one, would be grateful.
  11. Thank you very much Jim. This has been a question plaguing me for years. And now that I know the answer I have a clearer path to Gobo rendering success.
  12. So, is the important information here that Spotlight fixtures do not render Gobos when "Soft Shadows" is toggled ON? I (and others I'm sure) have been struggling for years with this issue and if it's that simple I'll be so very very sad it's taken this long to receive the info in this manner. A Knowledgebase item would have proved useful. K, just tested and apparently true. In this image, the two Gobos visible are fixtures with Soft Shadows toggled off, the two large pools are fixtures with same gobo with Soft Shadows toggled on.
  13. Andy; beyond it meaning something to you, it definitely means something to me and people like me: Here's what can be done with the tools at hand. Seeing the work you and others do here pushes me to extend my skills and practice further. I do wonder how much of the Pirate ship for ex. was done in VWX & how much in PS.
  14. Experiencing the same problem here, after SP2. Bothersome in the extreme
  15. Andy, I feel your pain. And somewhat OT, the notion that one can grab multiple fixtures and change their On/Off state, yet cannot change their intensity without entering a special edit mode and one by one laboriously clicking or slidering a new value creates equal pain. If anyone knows how to make this simpler/more efficient/faster, I'd be much obliged. Woof Andy, just checked out your portfolio, dang dude, that's some beautiful work!
  16. Gotta tell ya; nothing like a workaround to an intractable problem popping up in one's inbox over lunch. Super! Thanks Mark.
