Lx Instrument 3D Orientation


Hi there


This issue has been driving me nuts. Some of the lighting symbols show their 3D position correctly whilst others do not.


In the attached VW2016 file, I have 3 different instruments - Selecon pacific 12/28, Selecon spx 19 and an ETC Source 4 19. Only the 12/28 shows the correct 3D position in a side or iso view. The others just point down.


They are all showing the correct lx position, at the correct height and set to focus point A.


Is it possible that the spx and source 4 symbols are faulty?? Is there a manual workaround for this??

Its because you don't have the correct light info record attached to the symbol. If you right click a lighting symbol in the resource browser, click attach record, then make sure that Light info record & Light info Record M are selected and then click OK.


Refresh or re-insert your instruments and all should be well!


You seem to have lots of Light Info Records in your file. You really should only have one.


Hope that helps




Edit: You have 5 Light info records and 2 Parts records in your file. You should just have Light info record and Parts.
