Re: viz renderer / 2004 adt bug?

I had students do a level-test and producing DWG & VIZ Render files. I can
open them directly in VIZ Render and all is fine. Didn't had any problem
with it. These files were copied on a server, so they weren't located in the
original place.
I must say I've had the interface lockup once... We upgraded ADT2004 to SP1
so that might be able to solve some issues.
You can assign a different DWG from within the File Link Manager (but it
apparantly doesn't work with non-2004 DWG files, probably to prevent using
VIZ Render without AutoCAD ADT 2004).
I've been using AutoCAD for about 10 years, and 3dstudio Max for about 6

We also upgraded to ADT2004 + VIZ Render to replace ADT3.3 (well, we only
used the AutoCAD 2D+3D stuff) and VIZ r3.
I'm not finished with our tutorials, but it might be interesting to exchange
some ideas.

Sure that'd be good. I've written loads of little tutorials, all available on
formatting link
doubt, there will be loads of typos and stuff.
