Beams shaped by shutters not rendering correctly

Recommended Posts

Having an issue trying to get VW to render light from light symbols that have had shutters inserted so that my stage wash doesn't light the ceiling, etc. The beam shows correctly in wireframe but not always correctly in fast & custom renders. This happens in both the design layers and viewports. I have made sure that the "soft shadows" check box hasnt been selected. I have done this successfully before. 


Ive tried different symbols but this hasnt fixed the issue


My file is 150MB, so thought I would ask for anything obvious before trying to upload it.

Try and paste some into a separate file with their Focus Points and maybe something for the light to hit and post the file.
