  1. Hey guys, I am Ronny, a german student of landscape architecture. I use VW 2010 educational and at the moment, I try to export shape-files for usage in GIS. I import the exported shape files in VW (clean document) to check, if every information is ok....but it isn?t. The exported layer consists of 2d-points connected to a data base. The database and information are imported correctly, but the visual appearance of the 2d-points aren?t. So the layer in sum seems to be compressed or distorted, so the point are not at the same position as I exported them (even when I correct the scale). How can it be, that Vectorworks isn?t able to read its own shape files correctly? I know, there are some export/import settings. But as I have the german ersion, I can?t explain the english translation correctly. Does the appearance of the shape depends on the Projection-setting, while importing? I tried everything of it, but nothing worked well. Regards, Ronny
  2. Hi friends, at first, sorry for my not perfect english. i am german. I have some wishes for the next vectorworks/ renderworks or maybe an update. i have noticed that it isn?t possible to abort a started render process. that is very annoying, because sometimes i am rendering over hours. if you notice some fault or you want to addjust your 3d model, you have to wait to the end of the render process. my first suggestion: it should be possible to save halftone images in chosen format before you start rendering your 3d model. so you don?t need to render twice times (first for render it in vectorworks and then render (saving) it when export it as halftone image). if you save it before you are rendering, you can save a lot of time. my second suggestion: renderworks should open a seperate window for render processes. and it should always be possible to close the window and in so far abort the render process, if you want to. so it is possible to work more economical, because you are saving time not waiting for the render process ending both suggestion should be combined. take a look at artlantis studio (render engine program). artlantis studio includes this function and it works perfect and fast. thank you and best regards
