Patch Issues with Wash Fixtures

Recommended Posts



I'm having issues where the wash fixture (Martin Mac Aura XB and Highend Shape Shifter) are not taking the patch information i'm assigning them. The patch in vision is correct, But all the wash fixtures stay patched to channel one on their respective universe. Looking for any advise.

Hey Justin, double check to make sure your Visualizer data mapping is correct. In Vectorworks, navigate to File>Document Settings>Spotlight Preferences. Next, click "Edit Visualizer Data Mapping" in the bottom right. 


Vision uses the terms Universe and Channel to refer to a fixture's patch location, shown on the left of the window. Name is simply what field you want to use to identify your fixture Unit Numbers (101, 201, etc). Set the dropdowns on the right to match the fields you use to address your fixtures. 


The second thing that could be going on, make sure those fixtures have a fixture mode assigned in the object info palette. 


If you're still running into issues, please contact us through tech support: tech@vectorworks.net 


Hope that helps!
