Magic Sheet 2011- is there a better way!?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

I created my first magic sheet with VW 2011 and am sorely disappointed in its lack of information, organization, and of general customization. I have seen other VW magic sheets that are much better quality. i.e BU Dance Theater Magic Sheet

Does anyone have any advice on how I can get my magic sheets to be more like this example?

Did they use the tool to make that?...as that looks like the ones i just manually draft on sheet layers and update by hand...If you can do that with the Magic Sheet paperwork generator then it would save me tons of time...even more if I could just update my LW file and have it correct my magic sheet.

The Magic Sheet tool is basically useless. I don't know any professional lighting designers who use it. I just draw my own. Even on big shows (400+ channels), I can usually pound one out in about 3 hours.

Since every designer has his or her own opinions about how a magic sheet should look, there's really no way for Vectorworks to auto-create one.
