The documentation is in error. We will update the documentation.

The settings should be changed to:

Ray Traced Shadows Selected

Transparent Shadows Selected

Shadow Mapped Shadows De-Selected

Auto-Adjust Exposure De-selected

By default final quality Renderworks will render the Gobos correctly.

Okay, so I just got my upgrade from 12.5 to 2008 and now I am having problems getting gobos to show up in this version. I have tried every conceivable combination of custom renderworks settings and no luck. The manual says "Have Light On selected in the Object Info palette" but I don't have a Light On box to check. There is only Draw Beam and Draw Beam as 3D solid. In addition, the only way I can get to the Help files is to open them from the Help folder in Vectorworks. The Help Menu comes up blank.

Make sure you don't have anything blocking the light.

In Fast Renderworks you should see the light, but not the Gobo.

Are you using NNA's symbols or your own symbols.

The NNA symbols have a "Default Instrument texture" applied to them so the light will show through the geometry.

If you opened the 12.5 filr in 2008 make sure the light is turned on.
