The problem is in the live preview and not when the sequence is exported to Vixen, so is not a critical problem and will work well under 512 channels, otherwise playing the song a little slower automatically boost the FPS otherwise spending $100 in a medium-high profile video card probably will give you another 512 channels.

Once you've bought enough stuff for 512 channels, an extra $100 to program the next 512 channels is probably not an issue ;) ...

That's true,

A couple days ago I spent $500 in just 20 strobes, vampire plugs and SPT-2 wire :).

Progress 8-29-2010

Sorry about demos getting big in size.

As always I just show incremental progress, if you missed some videos, see previous videos on topic "Started software to create sequences", there you can find all videos from Prancer's beggining.

Progress: 9-1-2010

Pay job is getting a little active and I'm slowing down a little bit  :P, but you can bet I won't stop.

The logic to produce effects is in place, it does just a little for now as you can see in the previous video but that is a good foundation for what is coming later, so a lot monkey work still need to be done for effects.

Switched to the logic to create devices, this small demo is a proof of concept for what I think can be a interactive an easy way.
Devices will be split in categories as trees, arch, strings, etc, and when the category is selected the device can be customized on a pop-up window with preview before is added to the scene.

In the video I show how it could be done.

Quick Update: 9-19-10

Work was based on create an effect that is related to multiple devices, so there was not specific work and I had to touch everything as effects, selections, engine and new objects.

The pattern that I showed for the effects in the previous update was quite useful and now introduces more functionality like work with channels for multiple devices and fade-in/fade-out.

Added objects:
Stars
Snowflakes
Megatrees
Strings (single and multichannel)
Strobes
RGB Flood

Logic:
Single and multiselection support
Effects now support Fade-In Fade-Out

The demo shows the new functionality and how affect the devices, there was not work trying to sync with the music so they are randomly played.

This is really great stuff. If people are reluctant to spend the whole seven minutes watching this video (thanks, BTW, for changing formats), I'd suggest skipping to the last 90 seconds or so ... it is truly unbelievable.

When are you going to beta this? ;) ...

Cas,

Nice job, looks like you made some great progress.  What type of a system are you running it on.  Is it a resource hog?  Looks like it going to be extremely powerful tool.  <la..
