    Fixture rotation after reopen file

    Definitely interested...

    Fixture rotation after reopen file

    These 2 images confirm what Kevin said. "NoFocus" was generated w/o the fixtures having Focus Points assigned. "WithFocus" was with Focus Points assigned. The challenge, here, is that, within VW, we did NOT want to use Focus Points for these fixtures. We intentionally wanted them to aim straight-ahead (doable w. Focus Points but would have required 100...) As to moving-yoke fixtures exhibiting this same behavior, we saw it on one computer but not another. We also saw things flipped 180° (not just 90°) on some loads.

    Thanks for posting this, LJ. If you remember, EVERY fixture - moving and fixed - was spun around when we opened the file on the 2nd computer.

    Speaker Tools

    When you do...if you were to use the Landru version of the tools...I could chase the issue a LOT easier...

    Speaker Tools

    Thanks, gents. I've been able to replicate the 90° dispersion issue. Until we can get an adjustment out, use AudioBox 2 or Speaker to create speaker Library entries w. dispersions wider than 90°. I'm not able to replicate the weight issues w. either the Landru or Spotlight versions of the tools. If you have any files that show this and care to share, feel free to PM me.

    Speaker Tools

    Regarding your latest forum post...: - I'm not sure what is going on @ your end in terms of weight. I couldn't replicate the issue. Would you mind trying again and, if things still don't work, sending me a demo file that shows the issue? - Regarding the Dispersion issue, I found the issue and will get a fix out ASAP - at least, for the Landru version of the tool. I'm not sure when VW will be able to get theirs out.

    What issues have you had??

    Speaker Tools

    Hayden - 2 things to try: 1) On each computer, open VW and find the "User Folders" tab in the "Vectorworks Preferences" dialog. The "User Data and Preferences Folder" shown @ the top is the folder that will contain the "Libraries/Defaults/Audio Tools" folder. Regardless of whether the locations' structures match 100% on the 2 computers, the XML file in the "Audio Tools" folder should. 2) On each computer, open VW and place an AudioBox 2 or Speaker instance. Save a new speaker to the Library (a speaker that you can delete later). On both computers, do a search on your HDD for the XML file w. today's date. Replace the file you found on the "target" computer w. the one you found on the "source" computer. Does any of this help???

    Custom Aspect Stock Sizes - Video Screen Tool

    Hayden - The aspects listed are hard-coded. While you can add custom sizes to any of the "stock..." parameters, you can't add custom aspects. I'd recommend using the "stockspecial" parameter, which is used when either of the "special..." aspects are chosen.

    Speakers/Bumpers won't show up in VW 2019

    I'll have to admit that you have me scratching my head a bit if the 2019 graphic you posted indeed matches your 2018 installation. I was able to download and use the Library file you posted w/o issue. Just to humor me, would you make a Library change under 2018 (like, add a "DeleteMe" box)...check the XML file date of the XML file in the 2018 location you expect VW to be using...copy that file to the 2019 location...and re-check the date? Do the date checking w/o VW running. Also, what build of the tools do you have installed?

    Speakers/Bumpers won't show up in VW 2019

    Would you mind double-checking/confirming that the location of your User Data ("User Folders" tab in the "Vectorworks Preferences" dialog) matches the folder(s) where you copied the XML file? All versions of VW, from 2014 to current use the same XML file format (in-fact, you can freely copy the Library file back-and-forth if you wish) so the upgrade to 2019 should not present any issues, there.

    Speakers/Bumpers won't show up in VW 2019

    Might you have looked into the info in the latter pages of the manual? They outline (in general terms) how the Library system works and how to bring data forward. You can download copy from http://www.landrudesign.com/AudioToolSet.htm.

    Speaker Tools

    Download the manual found here: http://www.landrudesign.com/AudioToolSet.htm. The last 2 pages outline some of the inner workings of the Library System.

    are there d&b bumper files

    Here are 5(6) d&b bumpers from my library - including a "T" version of Y - for both AudioArray 2 and Speaker Array. Overall dimensions should be fairly close but I've not double-checked weights and rigging references. The file is in 2016 format but the data is good regardless of version. d&b_Bumpers.vwx

    Stefan - Which series bumper are you needing? And, what version VW are you running?
