Question

HI Everyone, I am having an issue with my new Vectorworks 2020, I am trying to render a file that comes out perfect when I render it in Vectorworks 2018 but once I try to render it  it and use it in vectorworks 2020 the renders come out black . See images for reference . Anybody else having this issue? I have made  the settings the same in 2020 as I had set up in 2018.

Hello Antonio:

 

It looks like your scene is using IES lights exclusively.  If you reset the custom light distribution by loading up the .ies file into the light again does that help?

Hello again Antonio:

 

This is a bug that is fixed in Service Pack 2 (upcoming).  For now the workaround is to reset the light distribution by loading the IES file into the light object again.

HI Dave , Thank you very much . I tried re setting the light distribution, But it didn't work.

 

But as you mentioned in the last reply I got an answer from the people at Design express and they confirm that ther eis a bug and that many people have experienced the problem so they are addressing it (as you mentioned ) in the SP2 . So they recommend that until then I keep using an older version. really appreciate your input.

 

thank you very much

I get the same thing on a texture by texture basis.

 

I change the settings of a texture and i a random sort of way, that texture will crash and render black.

 

There is no other fix than to delete the crashed texture and replace it with another.

 

Dave, is this a registered bug?
