Late nights and lots of caffeine are obviously doing their job. This looks to be most-excellent software.

Thanks so much for your hard work.

Simply amazing!  What version of Vixen did you import to?
Thinking of using xLights for my scheduler this year and avoid Vixen all together if I can.  Just would like to see if an import to xLights would work since it will import .vix files supposedly.  Haven't tried yet. 

Again....Awesome Job!  Can't wait to try it out myself! (waiting patiently)  :P

So far we have tried from version 2.1 to to 2.5.0.8 and we didn't have any problems.

I guess almost any Vixen stable version will work, if xLights can play Vixen files then I don't see why it would not work.

Great looking stuff - I'm brand new to this scene, but immediately started thinking along the same lines - the grid looks brain dead to me from the go. 

see: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

LSP transitions look similar to this, and its a great idea of mapping video to the spatial layout of lights.  But I like the idea of abstracting the timing data from the effects.  Where LSP in the end just generates grid events, I like the idea of keeping your objects interacting with some simple timing signals, and applying effects to this at runtime (or to generate "player" files).

Now being a Mac/Unix guy - I'm looking at having to roll my own.  I'm not looking to put together a full blown end user product.  However I've started architecting a framework of sorts that could sit between the existing protocols of MIDI and DMX - it would be a programatic framework in python - no GUI.

Anyway - in awe of your project so far - tons of work just to handle the waveform and 3D code.

Keeping something this complex easy to use is a monumental challenge, but a very worthy goal.

This sounds interesting, but I don't have a Windows machine.  Was there a link to screenshots or similar posted?  I'd love to see what everyone else is seeing.

I'm working on something similar for Mac/Linux - but without much of a GUI - more scripted.

Similar for me too.  Nothing runs on Mac so I wrote what I needed.  That's what I used for my Halloween show.  I needed something that automated the automation.  ;-)  There was no way I was going to sequence those flickering lights.  LOL

OK, I've written a blog post and have started a different thread for what I'm working on - so we can just talk about Prancer progress here.
