Hello All,

 

I recently switched to Vision from Martin Show Designer Pro.  I was a user of MSD for 12 years, but feel the software is destined to go away. I am sure I will have a ton of questions.  Any great getting started guides/tutorials would be appreciated.

Are there tutorials that address Vision 2019? Are their troubleshooting suggestions (for instance, my focus doesn't import)? Is there a tutorial that walks you through the basics of Vision 2019? I've used vision for several years and it has always been a difficult learning process.

Additionally, color doesn't import to Vision 2019 from Vectorworks 2019. It is so tedious to enter color for each fixture in Vision.

Hi Greg, colour info will go across via the colour wheels page. this functionality is being solved soon!

After more work with Vision I have confirmed that the focus did in fact transfer. Tom, are you saying that Vision has my color info but it is hiding somewhere? Or are you confirming that I have to re-enter all the color info? Without a reasonable sort process (by channel, for instance) that is incredibly time consuming and tedious.

Hi Greg

 

At the moment (I cannot say more), You will need to enter the colour info in vision or it can be done in vectorworks through this video

I understand and can empathise that this is a less than ideal process at this moment in time. Obviously it only affects generics as regular LED and colour mixing sources are fine. A lot of the designs I do now are mostly LED fixtures so I find that I have to do this process for only up to 24 fixtures. watch this space!

I am breathless in anticipation. What did you mean when you said "or it can be done in vectorworks through the lighting via the following?" Nothing followed.

Hi Greg, so you can make multiple selections using find and modify or shift and click then you can doubleclick a fixture edit the colour slot and click apply to all.

So I gave that a try, selecting all the units with a particular color and then putting that color in the 1st slot on the color wheel. Much quicker, but when it got to Vision there was still no color. My process was Find and Modify, select a color, Edit, enter the color from the colors listed in the palette to color wheel 1 slot 1, Okay.
