I m impressed in quite a few ways.

1) Was this your first year doing lights? That Light display was quite impressive.

2) The visualizer in prancer Looks greats. Looks allot more better then any of the other programs I have scene.

3) The sequencing looks great, and spot on.

Now once question I do have is I was under the impression that Prancer was not going to directly control lights, is prancer controlling the lights, or what did you use for light control?

I believe Prancer creates the sequence for Vixen.

I think you are seeing a preview in Prancer on the left
Then on the right its Vixen running the outside show

Of course I could be totally wrong (won't be the first or last time LOL)

Excellent display!!!!

I decided I did not have enough time to redo my 18 sequences with prancer, so I just converted and decided to use LSP ( <fp.)  The other issue I had is that most of my older controllers are d-light, which are LOR compatible controllers and vixen does not have a good LOR output plug-in.  This fact alone makes it difficult to rework with prancer.  I will be working on a DMX firmware replacement for my d-light boards and I will be able to use the prancer/vixen combo for next year.  I will most definitely use prancer next year.  Great work...

If Prancer is exporting vixen files, you can run the vixen files through xlights, the newest svn version, should be working with dlight controllers.

Thats spectacular

Four little words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals over the crowd: a little bit more. They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.

Whoa, great video and visited your blog .

I'm over the moon to see this. I've been looking for midi (show control version) tie into these lights.   I've wanted to have a multi faceted show control under time code, like SFX etc. so I can tie in my pyro with the MSC.   

I'm sure your aware of MSC, but if not the wiki is a great place to start.

I'd like cli control over vixen or LSP scripts.  Now I can drag out all my old gear . BCF2000 control of Vixen.   >.d9

Still is an alpha so the objects you see are basic shapes, in the future the shapes will support textures which will give real life appearance to the objects.

Cas, I think what you have in the 3D is already awesome.  Since you will never attain photo realistic, I think a degree of proxy representation of the lights is OK.  Rather than spend all that time getting the rendering improved, I'm sure you have lots of other things on your todo list.

Is there an object navigator other than the 3d view - where you can see objects in groups in a tree view?
