Hoist Connections?

Recommended Posts

Hi to all;

 

Do anyone know any way to associate a hoist with a pipe or truss or any element to work together, and take the weight loads automatically. Or do I trim the loads on every hoist manually on every height change? This maybe a noob question but if there is a way I can't find it on forum or resources.

 

Thanks.

I don't believe there is - partially because this would require implementing some structural analysis that is currently outside the scope of VW.

Thanks for the answer @bcd. I'll keep doing manually but I'll be placing a request for it cause hoists moving on their own is kinda dull tool. Maybe good for the visualisation and drafting but still need some work. I'll try to write a script for it but I don't know be able to achieve.

It's a reasonable request - at least they should trim to the Lighting Position hook heights (flat, vertical or raked) and Instruments/LP& Hoists should all lift together.
