Just posted this in VW forum as well.
Might be someone here that knows where the MVR-link is broken as Vectorworks and Vision does not handle an MA3 MVR export as I expected, patch and position works fine, but not the rest.
So with the release of MA3 1.0 I tried patching some GDTF files (Mac Aura XB and Encore performance) from GDTF-share, exported MVR and imported to VW 2020 sp2, screenshots below show that patchinfo got through, but I cannot believe that both those files just look like rectangles in 2d and 3d, should they not show the enclosed 3ds-model of the fixture like they use in MA?
Or how is it meant to work? Do I really need to exchange all fixtures again? Was this not what GDTF was fixing?
See attached ma3mvr of 2,7mb which is the export from MA.
After giving them some X, Y and Z positions I wanted to export back to MA3 or Vision via MVR from VW, I get the MA export file of 1kb that does not open in Vision or MA..
So please find out what is broken with the link that was meant to fix this workflow.
How do I open a GDTF-file from GDTF-share in VW? I tried importing, dragging in and now importing MVR, but it does not seem to work, so how do you do it?
