Hello everyone, I recently purchased Converse Light unlimited license and would like to know what the best option to import a show that is designed in VectorWork 2009.
I tried converting to. Dxf file and when I pass the. Dxf and. Png to furniture folder not see anything.
It is important to know if there is an option step by step what to do. From VectorWork to convert it and keep it in LC.
My show is very big and is fraught with many elements and equipment. DMX512 universes I'm using 16.
Please I need a help. (I only have 2 days with my license and my dongle)

I propose such a way.
When VectorWorks export a 3D object, it is poor at dividing square.
It export an object by the STL file format.
I think that the STL format is working well as the format which handles Triangle meshes.
"Blender" is free software.
"Blender" can import STL format.
Then, it is possible to do an export, too, in the DirectX format.
VectorWorks>STL Format>Blender>DirectX Format>LC
Try it!
Best regards.

Hi David!
Unfortunately, your videocard (9200) is not enough to doing the Big Shows, upgrade it to high-level model first and we will help you step by step than Iknow .

Mr Suzuki Thanks, I'll try your option and for your good help. Best regards

Admin be configured better video card, but I can not import any file from vectorwork even a small show.

I see on my computer and work very well on the demo show, the LDI2007 you have in the library works perfect.

I need more support about my question.

Thanks !!!

Hi David,

Importing .dxf files into LC can be a sometimes lengthy process as they are of a lower quality than the native files that are used in LC. The reason the LDI2007 demo show works perfect on your computer is because the objects used are .3dl files which are proprietary to our software. MS DirectX type files (.x) can also be used in LC with much the same good results as .3dl, which is why k.suzuki above suggested converting your .dxf to .x before importing into LC. As your large show is happening within the next few days, I think there is not enough time (as you are a new user also) to go trough the step-by-step process that Dmitriy mentioned, in addition to acquiring the correct hardware. We can help you with any future projects with no problem and look forward to this. :D

For your current show, you might want to contact Michael Creason about possibly using his version of the show (which took him some time to convert) and his LC pre-viz studio for a reasonable fee.
