    Okay. I have caught up on sequencing and I was thinking of extending the AP. What I was considering was what I am calling stamps. Think rubber stamps. Little files that contain data to stamp an image on your AP. e.g. A candy cane, or icicle lights, etc. These files could be created by the community and shared, just like .vix or .pro files. So if someone drew a really good Santa, they could capture it and share it with all of us.

    Does this sound like something you would use? Or would my time be better spend doing something else with AP?

    That sounds like a great idea. Even if it doesn't get shared with others, often times you'll have multiple arches, mini-trees, or other elements in your display. Once you spend the time to get one done (really well), it would be nice to be able to "copy/paste" that element in several places on the display. Thanks for you hard work on this.

    That would be great. I was hoping that this feature would be part of Vixen 3.0 but would keep me in 2.1 for a wile longer until it was part of 3.0. I don't run any DMX and for what I do with my lights at this time and until a little more info comes out on 3.0 this is what I need now to make my life a lot easier. As stated above thanks John for this and KC for the work on Vixen.

    Read the second line of the first post slower.
    A mediocre person tells. A good person explains. A superior person demonstrates. A great person inspires others to see for themselves.

    Sorry, not at this time. I will look at making it 2.5 compatible. I didn't think many people used 2.5 in "production" so I didn't spend any time even looking at making it 2.5 compatible. -- John

    Its pretty simple to make it 2.5 compatible (I went the other way with the plugin I was working on). A couple of #DEFINE macros is mainly what you need. Let me know if you want more details.
