adding audio and video objects to instrument summary

Recommended Posts

I am getting back upto speed VW spotlight after not having needed to be in it for over 5 years. I was wondering if there is a way to include Speakers and Projectors into the Instrument summary. Wanting to build separate drawings for Audio and Video crews as well as Lighting.

I recommend creating worksheets for complex lists.

As a general rule, 2 way worksheets can make almost any sort of listing with almost any parameters included. You can include or exclude objects by class, layer, object type, record field, etc.

The 'general' section of the forum has a sticky post. There are some videos on the main website and/or YouTube. And once you get into it you can ask detailed questions here.

I hope that helps.

The summary will build a key for any symbol with a Light Info record attached. You can attach the record and manage its data via the Lighting Symbol Maintenance command. In order for the summary to display counts, however, the symbol must be placed in the drawing as a Lighting Device.
