    Hi Bill,

    Is there any way to get / preserve the 3d preview of beams when viewing user created files?

    In case your wondering, exactly what I mean, if you create a beam effect yourself using the editor or create a new cue by merging others then you don't get the 3D beam preview in the playback window.

    As I know you like pictures:

    1. The 2 Cues playing back together using the Multi Image button in the standard workspace (preview window photoshopped next to the selected cues):

    2. The same 2 Cues merged into a new cue:


    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Exactly the same but the 3D preview is lost.

    User created files also don't seem to 3D preview.

    Workspace pics edited so as not to give the new features away.:D

    Ok, answered my own question.

    For reference for everyone, its all down to the Projection Zones.

    When you create an effect by default it goes to Zone 1 Main. You need to right click over the cue and select properties. The untick this and tick Zone 8 Atmospherics instead (if you don't untick zone 1 you end up with a tick in both boxes and it still doesn't work with the 3d preview!).

    Tick Zone 8 alone and the effect previews in 3D.
