Beginning with the launch of 2020, Vision Unlimited is the only professional purchasing option.
The lighting industry has grown in size and complexity so that anything less than an Unlimited Universe option is not sufficient anymore to visualize most professional shows. We want to ensure our customers are receiving the most practical and relevant product for this growing market.
The Unlimited license can be purchased with one of two activation options: dongle or online activated. If you need to use MA-Net as your DMX provider for your Unlimited license, then you will need a dongle for Vision. To purchase a dongle activated license of Vision, please contact our sales department directly.
Vision can be purchased with Vectorworks Service Select, our annual Software Service Agreement. Vectorworks Service Select provides updates to new version releases, priority technical support, and access to the update service that allows you to get the latest version of the library and gobo files, while your agreement is active. Membership to Vectorworks Service Select is renewed annually.
Vectorworks is introducing a new benefit exclusively for Vectorworks Service Select customers. This will allow members to use Vision with a limited number of universes. Vectorworks Service Select customers can download and install a license of Vision, at no additional cost, for each Spotlight or Design Suite license owned. Each Vision license includes 2 Universes and does not expire. Taking advantage of this benefit as part of your Service Select membership does not increase the cost of your membership in any way.
Performance may vary depending on several factors, including hardware configurations and project types. This list represents the minimum guidelines to run Vectorworks products. Please check our system requirements page for a full list of guidelines and recommended hardware profiles.
macOS 11 (Big Sur), macOS 10.15 (Catalina)
Windows 10 64-bit
Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5, or betterApple M series
1440 x 900 or higher recommended
8GB or more
2GB VRAM or more, macOS: Metal GPUFamily1 or later, Windows: DirectX 11 compatible.
Some integrated graphics cards such as Intel Iris Plus/Pro graphics and AMD Radeon RX Vega series are acceptable for very simple models/drawings, but a dedicated graphics card is preferable.
Vision requires a dedicated OpenGL 4.1 compatible graphics card with 2GB of VRAM or more, preferably released in the past three years (e.g. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 series, AMD Radeon RX 500 series).
Project sharing requires high-speed network connections. As the network bandwidth increases, so does project sharing performance. Slower network speeds can still provide a satisfactory user experience if you minimize operations that transfer large amounts of data over the network (such as committing changes to the project file or refreshing a local working file).
