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. 




Overall improvements

Vision performance, stability, and ease of use have been significantly increased


New bloom parameter

A new global parameter, bloom, allows you to add a halo effect around bright lights





Improved property parameters

Several global property parameters have been improved or have additional controls, including haze and volumetric quality; Invert Pan and Invert Tilt have been improved for fixtures
