About Me






  1. Here's a weird one that I just want to document before looking further or coming up with a workaround: The Stage Right PA disappears... or has a partial "cloaking device"! This is a screenshot in real time: And here's a rendered still generated from this exact scene: What's happening here? I suspect maybe the PA symbols were mirrored when inserted in to the VWX model, so I'll start there. But right now there's a black hole that swallows these objects on rendering. Notice that the bottom cabinets on the SR PA are visible, and it's not all black; the fixtures on the truss behind are quite visible. I suspect Romulan technology, stolen by the Klingons... but i'm not enough of a Trekkie to take that metaphor any further... Any thoughts? aj
  2. Hi Y'all... Pour yourself a coffee and tuck in; this is a long one! I'm having trouble mapping an NDI stream to various LED tiles placed on stage in set carts. The set looks like the following screenshot. All of the display surfaces are LED Screen plugin objects with dimensions and pixels set correctly in the OIP as indicated: The image on the LED screens is set in "Edit Array Image" where a custom texture is selected. Notice that the Scale is set to 50% to get the image to display correctly (the illusion is a stack of TVs with different images). The image used for the texture is only two TVs wide, so this makes sense as applied to the still image in VWX. Changing this scale, however, has no effect on the eventual video mapping problem that we shall see in Vision. I tried exporting MVRs with all of the Scale adjustments in this menu set to 100% and had the same results that are illustrated below. I also wonder what the "Capture Source Name" and "Capture Source Number" are in the "Select Vision Video Source" dialog. These names do not correspond to the names that Vision ends up asking for, and you could put Fred or Ethel in the "Capture Source Name" field and you never see those names come up again throughout the process: But let's not get distracted... OK, so now we move over to Vision, after exporting the LED tiles in their own MVR. The set carts that they travel in get exported as a separate MVR to keep things organized. These two MVRs plus my Amphitheatre MVR merge together in to this model: Let's begin by selecting our first LED array (in this case the 4 tile square array top center) and choosing Assign Video Input: We assign the video input a name: The video input is fed via NDI from a MacBook Pro running Resolume Arena. The NDI monitor on the Vision PC shows a smooth, steady video image in real time: We find the 1920x1080 NDI input that is being scaled by 1/3 to give us a raster of 640x360 for use in Vision. So let's crop the NDI stream! I scaled my 1080 template down to 640X360 in Photoshop to determine the exact corners of every crop and wrote them down (analog, in a notebook with a pencil) because the cropping tool in Vision is rudimentary at best. You can't zoom in on it, there's no grid or snap guide... best to use the tools in Photoshop and write down the pixels. So we get our square crop for our square video surface: And we do it for each of the LED screens in the model: During this process, plan to spend a lot of time looking at this screen, waiting for Vision to "see" the NDI input that it "saw" just perfectly moments ago: Eventually we have created 13 separate crops of the NDI raster and mapped them to our LED screens. And here is the confusing result: Note the different scaling of the crops! Nothing seems to work out right, except the SR High and SL High set carts! The 2wide x 4high carts are the only ones that display the crop faithfully. The Ctr Top crop is perfectly square, mapped to a perfectly square screen. It ends up stretched vertically. Ditto the Ctr Bottom... that one is stretched vertically and doubled. The math certianly does not work for the downstage 3wide x 1high boxes. Playing with the texture scaling and offset in Vision does not help... You can't fix an asymetrical scale as is occuring here. If we use Vectorworks to create an LED screen and send it to Vision, and Vision has the ability to crop an incoming NDI stream, why doesn't this just work? I did try sending the crops from Resolume as separate NDI streams but Vision could not see them as separate. Any help would be appreciated. Getting this model to work will greatly increase the chances that it will be useful to me before we get to rehearsals. Thanks peace aj peace aj
  3. Hello to all. I started to learn Vision 2021. I downloaded vision and Grand Ma3 onPC. However ı got some problems. I applied every directions step by step as @JuanP said ( However I couldn't update release_wiz_key_1.4.53.8.xml. because it doesn't appear any xml files. (upload the photo). Is it about ma3 onPC? I can't change the updatemode version. I think updatemode and idlemaster should be same version. (photo 2) And also i have to inform you something. I have no dongle and i have no Gma3 onPC port node. Can't i work without them? Can you please help me about this matter? Best Regards. 🙂
  4. Hi all! In VW2021 I've made a model of a venue and a light plot containing trusses, hoists, lighting devices and so on. I then exported the venue (no trusses, lights, hoists) as a ESC file and imported it to Vision. So far so good (I think). Next, I exported the trusses, hoists, lighting devices and everything else used in the set design as a MVR file. Most of the things look ok, but why, oh why, does Vision import (or Vectorwork export) it like this? File with white background is from VW2021, before exporting. As you see, hoists are up side down and no truss is visible. But still the chains are at the correct position. And yes, all classes are visible during export 😃 I asked this question on FB as well but no answer so far. Thanks all! Looking forward! Martin
  5. How many Vision users out there think Vision needs to include a Virtual Software Console that gives you the ability to control fixtures inside of Vision without a lighting console??? Click Like if you agree! Shown Below: WYSIWYG Realizzer Light Converse

  7. Regards. I have this difference in panning between vision and ma2 and ma2 3d. I exported from Vectorworks to Vision .MVR I used the MA2 plug-in to export the vectorworks patch to MA2. Any ideas how I could be sure which of the two is correct in real life? From already thank you very much. Take care and keep SAFE !!!
  8. Hey All, Very new to the entire world of vision. I am using the ETC EOS console to control my vision file. I have the Martin Rush Par 2 RGBW Zoom 5 channel fixture in the file When choosing colors in EOS (by Gel color) some are close but most are way off. Is this normal? I used the GDTF fixture mode from the GDTF web site. Any help would be appreciated Thanks, Jeff Miller Attached is the view of L139 mixed in the fixtures (Don't think so) Also attached is the EOS console breakdown of the color
  9. Greetings. I am having the following problem and wanted to see if I am doing something wrong. The situation is as follows, I am using some ETC source 4 and in vw I make the shutter cuts. In the VW render they look good. When I use Vision, directly exported they only 2light turn on and 1 only shows the cut, but not the color. If I export it as MVR, they all light on, but cuts and colors don't appear. Any idea? Happy weekend !!! (Safe in home)
  10. hi to everyone! anyone of you has problems updating library in vision? When I press "update library", the screen stays on "downoading update" for hours and doesn't download anything. See attached image. Thanks for your support!
  11. Hey All, MAC user here During this Covid-19 hell I want to learn how to program a Hog Console unless the Grand MA is a better choice. (y'all tell me) I have a MAC book pro i want to run bootcamp on to use the HOG pc or Grand MA software. I will use my Mac pro to run Vision. I know i have to buy windows 10 (any ideas for reliable trustworthy versions) BUT what else am i going to have to buy. (software, dongles, etc) I would like to have a few (maybe 1 to 3) DMX universes. This is strictly going to be used in vision only as a learning tool. If i ever get near real lights i will also get near a real hog to dump the show into. Thanks for the info in advance Jeff Miller
  12. What are the MINIMUM system requirements for Vision? On Windows: Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8.1(64-bit), Windows 10 (64-bit), a 2.5 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 2GB video card, and a mouse with a middle button or scroll wheel. On Mac: OSX 10.11 or later, a 2.5 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 2GB video card, and a mouse with a middle button or scroll wheel. For both PC and MAC, it requires a dedicated graphics card supporting GL_ARB_draw_buffers extension with 8GB of VRAM or more, preferably released in the past three years (e.g., NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 TI series, AMD Radeon RX 5000 series). We do not recommend any integrated Intel video chipset. While Vision may run, we do not support them due to their lack of performance and speed. For the full list of system requirements and system recommendations see Vectorworks System Requirements. Does Vision run on macOS? Yes, Vision is cross-platform and runs on the MAC and Windows operating systems. MAC OSX 10.11 or greater is the only requirement. The MAC version currently supports Artnet and sACN as DMX providers. All Vision licenses are cross-platform, allowing you to run on either PC or MAC. There is a known compatibility issue with macOS Nvidia Drivers. Please see the Tech Bulletin for complete details. How many lights can I run in Vision? The speed of your video card and rendering settings directly impacts the number of lights that you can run. Vision currently recommends the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 or the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series both with 8+ GB of RAM. You can improve the performance of Vision by adjusting your Vision Preferences and Document Preferences to match the capabilities of your graphics card better. Turning off Render Shadows; Reducing the Texture, Shadow, Surface Light Quality; Rendering fixtures as black or turning off fixture rendering, and many other settings can significantly increase the performance of Vision. If you are running a slower video card and are still experiencing sub-optimal framerates, you should consider upgrading to a faster video card. What is a dongle? Do I need one to run Vision? A dongle is a USB key that contains your license information, including the number of universes that you own and subscription data. Vision 2018 Users: You need a dongle to run a 2018 Vision license. This device allows you to install Vision on as many machines as you choose, but it will only enable Vision to launch on the computer with the dongle attached. Vision 2019 or higher Users: You do not need a dongle to run a Vision License. However, if you need to use MA-Net as your DMX provider, MA Lighting requires the use of a dongle for Vision. The Vision dongle can be purchased directly from Vectorworks. MA Lighting does not currently support visualizer connectivity via MA-Net on the grandMA3. How many universes can I buy? Beginning with the launch of 2020, Vision Unlimited is the only professional purchasing option. What if I already own Vision or Vision Plus prior to 2020? Your Vision or Vision plus license will automatically be converted to an Unlimited license free of charge. Customers whose Vision license is active on a Service Select contract will automatically be transitioned to Vision 2020 as part of the benefits of the program. Customers will experience a slight increase to continue renewing their Service Select membership with Unlimited licenses. Customers who are not actively on a contract will be required to purchase the upgrade to 2020, but the transition from Vision or Vision Plus to Vision Unlimited is at no additional charge. Why is Vision Unlimited the only available option for 2020? The Lighting industry has grown in size so that anything less than Unlimited Universes is not sufficient anymore to visualize most professional shows. We want to ensure our customers are receiving the most practical and relevant product for this growing market. With the release of version 2020, we will be offering a free 2 Universe Vision license for those that are part of the Vectorworks (Spotlight, Designer) Service Select program and want to try Vision, or who only require a few Universes. How do I control Vision? Vision is listening for DMX-512. Any console or onPC/off-line editor that outputs Artnet, Hog- net, MA-net, or sACN can be used to control Vision. MAC product integration is limited to Artnet and sACN at this time. Will I ever have to buy the new version of Vision? You are not required to buy the latest version of Vision. However, Vision can be purchased with Vision Service Select, our annual Software Service program. Vision Service Select provides updates to new product releases, priority technical support, and access to newest library files while your agreement is active. Membership to Vision Service Select is renewed annually. How many lights are in the Vision fixture library? While the numbers are continually changing, you can be assured that the fixtures from the major manufacturers are included. These include High End, Martin, Coemar, Vari*lite, ETC, and many others. What if I need a fixture that isn't included in the library? Active Vision Unlimited customers are entitled to request a maximum of 4 lighting fixtures per 30 days, using the “FIXTURE REQUEST” form on the Vision product page. We will make every effort to provide that to you within 72 business hours, often sooner. Any other customer request would be put in the queue as fill in. What exactly is Update Dongle, Update Library and Update Vision? The Update Dongle contacts the Vectorworks server to update your dongle. Is should only be necessary to run the Update Dongle command when you renew your Vision Service Select agreement or when you want to view your contract expiration date. If you do not have a dongle, there is no need to run this command. The Update Library contacts a cloud-based internet server that all of our customers can access. When you access the Update Library server, it compares the latest library files against what you have on your computer and updates any files that have been added or changed. This ensures that you always have the most recent data available. We recommend that you access the Update Library server before you begin any major project. You must have an active Vision Service Select agreement to access the Update Library server. The Update Vision contacts the Vectorworks server to update your Vision software to the latest available service pack. Do you have a trial version? Yes. Vision has a free downloadable 30-day trial which will allow you to run Vision. This will allow you to test Vision's capabilities and see the superior quality of Vision. You will find sample files, DMX recordings, and detailed information regarding patch, etc. in the "Demo Documents" folder within your Vision Trial installation. INSTALLATION Do I need any other programs to install Vision? All necessary support files are included in the Vision installer package. Should I plug my Vision dongle in before I start the install? We recommend it. If your dongle is not handy at the time of installation, you can later run the updater by inserting your dongle and running the updater from your desktop or from the Vision folder to ensure you have the latest version of the library. Can I change the installation directory? Yes, you can. However, once installed, Vision will always look in the installation directory for the files it needs. If you need to relocate Vision, you will need to reinstall and connect to the patch server to update the new installation. Always backup any important files before attempting this, though. VISION How do I navigate in Vision? All navigation within Vision is accomplished using the middle mouse button. To pan up, down, or around, hold down the middle mouse button and move the mouse. To zoom in or out, hold Ctl+Alt and the middle mouse button and move the mouse in and out. To rotate the scene, press Alt and the middle mouse button and move the mouse. You can also use the tools that are provided in the tool window to zoom, rotate, pan, and tilt. Find a complete list in Vision Help. How do I focus conventional fixtures in my rig? Select the lights that you wish to adjust in the scene. All the lights are turned on. Another way to select the fixtures you want is to use the mouse and arrow in the scene. Once the lights are selected, you can move them all in sync by using the four arrow keys. These keys correspond to the pan and tilt of each fixture. If you wish to focus all selected lights to the same position, move your mouse to that position, right-click and select "Focus selected lights here." If you wish to focus each light individually, be sure to have the main window picked and hit the page down button which will highlight a single fixture. Focus that fixture using the arrow keys. When you complete, hit page down again and the next light is highlighted. Continue the process until all fixtures are focused. How do I adjust the haze in the scene? Haze can be adjusted in the Document Settings window or by select the ROOT from the Scene Graph window. The movement of the haze is controlled by Haze Vertical Speed and Haze Horizontal Speed. By setting these to 0, the atmosphere will be constant without any movement. To set the density adjust the Haze Amount up or down, to suit your needs. A setting of 0 will assume no atmosphere (such as in a theater setting). If I am running a complex scene, how can I increase speed? There are a few things that you can do that may assist you when running a complex scene. You can lower the graphics settings under Vision Preferences and modify your Document settings. You can also eliminate the geometry associated with the lighting fixtures by setting Render Fixtures to Off in the Vision Preferences. You will notice that the fixture will disappear from the Vision, but the light is still emitting from where the fixture used to be. Significant speed increases can also be achieved by turning off Render Shadows on the Document Preference settings. If your file contains multipart fixtures, checking the Force Emissive option for these fixtures will also improve performance. Lowering the Volumetric Quality or disabling Enhanced Volumetric may also improve performance. For files with a very large number of fixtures, disabling the High Precision option may increase performance with minimal impact on rendering quality. How do I connect my console to Vision? To begin, check out the forums on DMX Connectivity, which contains detailed instructions on connecting Vision to a number of the most popular consoles. In Vision, you only need to select the DMX Provider under the DMX menu. What is the optimal resolution for running Vision? Once again, this is somewhat determined by your video card. Generally, you should run Vision at 1280×720. This will give you the optimum performance and quality for your real-time visualization. Vision is capable of running at much higher resolutions, but lower resolutions allow for better performance and higher quality rendering. Resolution is configurable from within the Vision Preferences and should be adjusted to best fit your needs based on the hardware being used. VISION UPDATES I have an expired maintenance program; how do I get the latest build? Contact the sales team at sales@vectorworks.net and renew your maintenance program. Vision Support will be able to reactivate your dongle remotely so that you can access the Update Server once again. My maintenance program has expired. Can I still run Vision? Yes. Your version of Vision will still be active. However, you will no longer have access to the latest versions of Vision. Make sure that you keep your subscription active to ensure that you have the latest and greatest versions of Vision at your fingertips. Please be aware that any fixtures released following your subscription date will not be visible in your Vision model. Free Vision for Vectorworks Service Select Customers Why are we offering free Vision licenses for Vectorworks Service Select customers? Vectorworks is introducing a new benefit exclusively for Vectorworks Service Select customers. This will allow you to try Vision or have access to Vision if you only require a few Universes. What are the conditions for the free license on Vectorworks Service Select? Vectorworks Service Select customers can download and install one license of Vision, free of charge for each Spotlight or Designer license owned. Each Vision license includes 2 Universes and will not increase the cost of your Service Select renewal. It will stay active on the contract perpetually as long as the Spotlight or Designer licenses are active. If I am not a member of Vectorworks Service Select, can I still receive a free Vision license? No, the free license is a benefit of being an active Service Select member. How do Vectorworks Service Select Customers receive a free license of Vision? At the launch of 2020, the Service Select portal will feature a function that will be available only to customers with either a Spotlight or Designer license. For each Spotlight or Designer license, customers will have the ability to receive a free license of Vision (with 2 Universes) simply by selecting the option in the portal. The Vision license(s) will be visible and usable perpetually. If I require a dongle, can I still receive a free Vision license? No, only series E is available for the free 2 Universe license. Will my price increase if I download the free Vision license? No changes will be made to your renewal cost if you download the free Vision license. Can I transition to vision unlimited? Free Vision licenses cannot be transitioned to Unlimited, however you can purchase an Unlimited VIsion license that will be added to your contract in addition to your free Universe license. Do I get a new free license every year? Yes, as long as you are an active Vectorworks Service Select member with at least one Spotlight or Designer license, the free Vision license will be available upon release. Can a customer add a free Vision to more than one license in the portal? Yes. Customers can receive a free license of Vision for each Spotlight or Designer license that is active on contract, regardless of how many licenses of either product they own. G-series licenses with multiple Spotlight or Designer licenses will qualify for a free Vision license for each seat on the G-series license. Is the Vision license connected to the Spotlight or Designer license it was provided for? No. Vision continues to operate independently of Vectorworks and is not connected in any way to the Vectorworks license. Does a customer have to add Vision to all eligible licenses with the offer, or can they choose one license to add it to? The customer is eligible to receive a free Vision license for each Spotlight or Designer license on contract. However, they are not required or limited by the number of Vision licenses they request. They may select to use a Vision license for as many as they are eligible for, or as few as they would like. Can the customer take advantage of the offer for different licenses at different times throughout the year? Yes. If the customer has more than one Spotlight or Designer license, they may opt to take advantage of the offer for each license at different times throughout the year. As long as the Spotlight or Designer license remains active on the contract, the customer will be able to take advantage of the feature at any time. Why is Vectorworks offering one free license for each Spotlight or Designer license on contract, rather than just one per contract? Companies with multiple licenses have multiple designers. We want to offer the opportunity for all designers to try Vision who may ultimately be interested in using a professional Vision Unlimited license in the future. If I add a new license to my Service Select contract after the launch of 2020, will I be able to receive a free Vision license? Yes. Any Spotlight or Designer licenses added to an active Service Select contract will automatically become eligible to receive a Vision license, which will be available in the Service Select portal. I no longer wish to renew my Vision license on contract. What are my options? If you no longer wish to renew your Vision license on contract, you may choose to park the license. Parking a license means it freezes it at its current version. You won’t have to pay for that license on your renewal each year; however, parked licenses and their assigned users are not entitled to the benefits of Vectorworks Service Select. You can park or unpark a license 90 days prior to your renewal date. Vectorworks Service Select customers who continue to have an active Spotlight or Designer license on contract may choose to receive the free license of Vision offered as part of the service, regardless of the status of a parked Vision license.
  13. Hello everyone I am working on a show, where we want to pre visualise a lot of stage element movements. They go on every axes, and rotate. My problem is, the rotation. Is it possible to change the anchor point of a object in Vision? It seems as it takes the 0;0;0 coordinate as default anchor point as default. Best from Mathias

  17. I've used DMX transform for quite some time, only to move thing up and down, besides dealing with inches to figure out heights works great.. Today I wanted to rake a truss con "variable speed hoist" and found out the now (I believe this was not the case of old and beloved Vision 2.3) everything rotates around the local origin, this is also stated in the manual. Is there any workaround to get thing to rotate on the object axis? If not, I cannot figure out one good reason to rotate anything around the local origin in the entertainment world... Please someone explain what the benefit would be.... EDIT: I did find a workaround, if you place the whole object you want to move centered to the local origin in VW, it will rotate on its center. The only problem with that is that you have to move everything again in Vision in inches.... I really do hope I'm missing something here...
  18. Beforehand I think this is great and something we've asked for some time, so Thanks! On the other hand, I haven't found any information that specially shows how it works so here are some questions: - I am guessing that the "Channel" field has to be the Unit number, can this be changed? - I've tried to use the numbering tool to get the DMX address populated but haven't found it, is the patch window the only way to get it done? If so, this is something to reconsider... - I've seen the Vision data mapping has vanished and for what I've tried it uses the same fields as the patch window, is this correct? Is this editable?
  19. I'm involved with a project right now previz'ing with Vision 2019 (Windows 10) and GrandMA2 onPC. They are talking to each other via MAnet protocol. I have not yet had an opportunity to test Vision 2019 with a real desk. Will Vision 2019 listen to MAnet from MA Hardware (Full-Size, Light, etc.), or should I be prepared to output Art-Net or sACN? Thanks!
  20. Hello I am a newbie to Vision only a few days into it. I already have a large show that requires me to have a media inputs to the pre-vis. I don't see to much info on this but i was told Vision can support it. So question 1, how do you config the screens / led walls 2, how to get input to Vision via my media server. Can it be via CITP. Also after reading some of the posts regarding the video inputs to vision i hope it gets fixed really quick or i also have just spent a lot of $$ for not able to Pre-Vis a major part of programming shows.

  22. GDTF importer for Vision Symbols... maybe the physical form can be based on the 3D info from the Vectorworks file and the attributes can be defined by GDTF?
  23. Hello All So once again struggling to find any useful information in the tiny manual. Very simply need to display video content from a video file on my computer on a screen inside vision. Had a more complex file but started from a black vectorworks document to test. I have made a surface inside Vectorworks, selected the vision video source and then save and sent to vision. Inside vision the screen flashes once and then is blank. What size can the video file be resolution wise. What format should the video file be. How do you crop the video to fit the screen. I know you can crop if there is a capture source but no option seems to exist for saved videos. Please any help much appreciated. Richard
  24. Option for Vision to take dmx info from Vectorworks’ Address field in “universe/address” format. Currently, Vision only takes Universe and U Address information, and there is no option to move data from the Address field into the Universe and U Address fields without the use of Lightwright.
  25. Vision Undo funtion doesn't work to undo the last action(s).
