    Thumbs up Moveable Adjustable Preview (NOW Supports Vixen 2.1 and 2.5)

    You can reposition your channels now in Adjustable Preview (AP) with this plugin. This works with Vixen 2.1.x AND 2.5.x

    For Vixen 2.1, download AdjustablePreview.zip
    For Vixen 2.5, download AdustablePreview V2.5.zip

    then,

    To install:
    • Open you vixen plugin output (Go to the Vixen folder, then plugins and finally output).
    • Rename AdjustablePreview.dll to AdjustablePreview.backup
    • Save the attached file for your version and unzip it to the vixen plugin output folder.


    To use:
    • BACKUP ALL OF YOUR PROFILES - this plug in has been tested and did not damage any profiles, but better safe than sorry.
    • You will notice a new button in the AP "Setup for Sequence Preview" screen (where you draw you preview) called Grab Channel. It will be disabled until you select a channel to modify.
    • Select a channel to modify
    • To move that channel, click "Grab Channel"
    • Use the arrow keys (up, down, left, right) to move the image associated with the channel up, down, left or right.
    • When you've repositioned the channel image to where you want it, click Release Channel or select another channel to work with.
    • Everything else works the same way as it did before, if not report it back to me, please.


    I hope this makes perfecting your AP much easier and enjoyable. -- John

    Anyone who participated in the testing, please update to this one. It corrects two "bugs" - not really bugs, but weird behavior.

    A quick test and it seems to work well. Great job. Should make it a lot easier to perfect a preview.

    WOW 33 people (as of 10:42PST on 7/23) have downloaded this. Cool.

    Thanks to those who left feedback here, that means a lot to a developer. -- John

    The original problem of the floating channels I experienced with the first version looks like it has been fixed and so far everything works fine. Thanks for the new movable adjustable preview John.
