I'm a freelance Lighting Designer working mainly in opera and I use Wysiwyg Perform to design my lighting rigs in 3d. I usually hook Wysiwyg up with my ETC EOS Nomad to pre-program and check lighting cues so that I can visualise my lighting before the set and lights are rigged in the theatres / opera houses where I work. It would be a great time saver if I could import the Wysiwyg .wyg file into Augment 3d so that the theatre's lighting console programmer could see my rig at the console without having to redraw the set and lighting rig all from scratch. I hope someone can set out a straightforward workflow that I could try.Many thanks,
From R46 on you should be able to export GLTF from Wysiwyg and import it into Augment3d. From R47 (out this summer) you can also export MVR files.
Anyone have additional information on this? I have R47 and exported an MVR, but don't see an import MVR inside EOS.
Eos does not import MVR, but you can use glTF to get models from wyg to Eos
I was playing with that last night. worked reasonably well. There are a few things I need to figure out involving custom images on surfaces, but over all it was very cool. I was also playing with MVR between wysiwyg, Vectorworks, and MA3 on PC and found it to be pretty great. Definitely some things I need to learn, particularly on the MA3 side. But it is all very promising and cool. Thanks for the input. I will hold out hope that ETC will eventually bring MVR into the fold. Until then I guess I just have to practice placing my fixtures in manually.
if you have VWX in the mix there is an ETC plugin to bring channel data into Eos.
I don't own a copy of VW. I work with some LDs that do which is why I am excited for the MVR import/export between VW and WYSIWYG. Adding EOS into the mix would be cool, but those LD's are MA2/3 programmers while I am the EOS guy. So with my current client list it would only be myself that is benefitting from EOS importing MVR. Thank you for the suggestion ueliriegg! Maybe I can convince my VW friends to do quick conversions for me when I am in a pinch.
We are considering MVR Import for a future version. In the meantime, you can find the current list of supported formats here: 3D File Formats Compatible with Augment3d - Electronic Theatre Controls Inc
