    Video Screen Tool issue

    Steve - That error message means the tool is being asked to place a projector in a way that is impossible - such as a vertical offset that is more than 90°. Try a smaller vertical shift amount or a different lens spec. and see if the issue gets corrected.
  3. We are happy to announce Vectorworks 2020® versions of our tools have been released! In addition to getting things ready for Vectorworks 2020®, we've been working on the usual "under-the-hood" refinement and on adding some features several users have been requesting. As evidenced by the Audio ToolSet tools' "Symbol" functionality released earlier this year, we really do listen to your requests! The most apparent improvements you'll see have to do with text display in the VideoScreen 4 tools. You'll see things like the ability to generate 3D text blocks (discussed in one of the Facebook VW groups recently)...customize item labels...and, to display additional textual information. If you're one of our users and purchased one of the VideoScreen 4 licenses or a Producer's Pack 3 license since February 11, 2018, these updates are available to you free-of-charge. If your license is older than that, we believe that you'll find our upgrade offers to continue to be quite generous. If you hold a license to one of the other tools, your current link and password will allow you to download a version for Vectorworks 2020®. If you're not one of our users, yet, and would like more info, visit one of the links in my sig for more details, to download manuals, or to check out the upgrade offers. Happy Vectorworking!

    Using Rigging hoists / markers to automatically show layout dimensions

    No. Not a stand-alone tool. Simply treated as another "Department" in our RigPoint tool.

    Thanks for the kind words, Andrew!

    Using Rigging hoists / markers to automatically show layout dimensions

    An add-on, yes. Purchased, no. Just something I creates for myself but shared w. colleagues and team-members who were wanting something more powerful than Symbols but simpler than the stock Hoist tool.

    Using Rigging hoists / markers to automatically show layout dimensions

    Enough users of the Landru Design version of the tool are using it like you describe that I finally added a "Spike" option:

    Ultra Short Throw Projection

    For the current build of the Spotlight tools, yes, this is your best option.

    Ultra Short Throw Projection

    The same thing is true if your units are in Imperial and you want your projector(s) to work in Metric files. Units markers need to be included. 1 note: Don't change the field formats in the Record from Text to Dimension. They need to remain Text fields with units markers manually added. The tools look in both places. I simply suggested the external folder assuming the Symbols would be needed in files beyond the current model.

    Ultra Short Throw Projection

    If you're running Spotlight or are using the Landru Design version of the video tools, all you have to do is to add that file to the "...Libraries\Defaults\Video Screen\Projector Models" folder. Then, when you use one of the projection tools, those projector models will be available to you. The tools will handle screen sizing and projector placement for you.

    Realistic Scrim Objects

    Yes - though, not stand-alone. They're part of the SoftGoods 2 package.

    Realistic Scrim Objects

    Have you tried any of the Sharkstooth Textures that are included in the Landru Design version of the tool? They are based on scans of Rosebrand Sharkstooth Scrim instead of code-generated Textures. See the link(s) in my sig...

    Count truss objects

    Wow...a height joke... ;-)

    Count truss objects

    Thanks. I had the right word but wrong syntax...

    Count truss objects

    I've got a Worksheet listing instances of a given PIO, summarized by a selected field. What is the syntax for displaying the count for each summary?
