Since the introduction of the “Send to Vision…” command, Vectorworks has been the keeper the model of your project. Conventional fixtures are now members in good standing in that all of the parameters such as focus, gobo, shutter cuts are transferred to Vision during the ‘Send to Vision…’ command. Also several environmental parameters have been added and exposed so that there is now a huge amount of control of the lighting characteristics in the room available.
