Creating Schedules Vector Scrit Problem

Recommended Posts

I am a Lighting Design student who has truged his way from MC5 to VW8 creating light plots. The improvements over the years have been greatly appreciated.

Recently I ran into the problem that when asking VW8 to create a schedule through the Theatrical Lighting Toolkit it creates a type 1 unexpected quit error on the Mac Platform. Is this something issolated to my computer, or is it a known bug with a fix coming out soon?

I have tried starting new files and using the command(No lighting instruments in the file), I have tried using files that have Lighting Instruments in the file, I have tried sellecting instruments before I create the scheduls, and I get the same error.

This really dosen't apply to me for I export to LW3 to do my paperwork, however I am interested in having paperwork printed on the same page as the light plot. I noticed that Create Schedules does try to do this, and I am curious if this can be turned on or off?

I also have a question about importing from LW3. What are the settings needed by VW8 to import data. I have found it very easy for LW3 to rearrange incoming data, but the export to VW8 file never seems to be in the right format for VW8 to read correctly.

I am still having the problem of an unexpected error that closes VW8 when creating schedules on the MAC Platform. I have tried this same procedure on a PC and have found no problems. Does anyone know why the MAC version 8.5.2 is having this problem? Or how to fix it?

This is a known bug and we are working to find a resolution to the problem.

Make sure you choose the options in lightwright to export field names as first record and to fill all blank fields with the dash "-" character. You also want to make sure that you are exporting the external ID field and that you are creating a tab delimited file.
