Lighting Symbols

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can find a pretty uniform set of symbols for VW.

Over the years I have collected many symbols from all different places and I would like to get some that all look relatively the same.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Cheers.

I second the SoftSymbols recommendation. Though I've created the majority of what I use, that package is very well-drawn and is indespensible for those "I need XX symbol NOW!" moments.

Thanks all for the tip, i have dropped Steve Shelly a mail, in the mean time does anybody have a clay paky or robe beam symbol ?

Cheers,

Dave.

Hey Dave,

You do know that VW Spotlight comes with a deep library of symbols?

Not always the newest lights but the majority.

In a Windows machine it would be here

C:\Program Files\Vectorworks2010\Libraries\Objects-Entertainment

I'm not sure what the Mac path would be.

Both Clay Paky and Robe are in there.

Hi Dave

These are under Applications/Vectorworks 20xx/Libraries/Objects-Entertainment.

But I think we added these as favourites when you came for your training. So maybe you are looking for alternatives to those shipped with VW.

All the best

Hi All,

Thanks for your replies, yes I am looking for any alternatives as the VW2011 ones don't have a lot of new symbols.

I am looking for GLP Impression 120 fixtures and a Robe or Clay Paky Beam Fixture.

Tamsin, thanks for the heart, it works a treat.

Thanks Again,

Dave.
