    Default Cool Routines sharing thread.

    We share sequences when asked, but sometimes, I really like something an element is doing in the sequence. You can save these cool actions as "routines" (a .vir file in the routines folder) I like to use them, as they make duplicating those actions so much faster.

    So, do you have any? Share them here.
    Just be sure to include what version Vixen they came from. Not sure if it makes a difference, but just in case.

    Here are a couple of mine....

    Vixen 2.0.9
    Mega Tree Ratchet effect.
    3 channel Holdman star twinkle.

    OK, here is a quick "How To"
    1. Make your "routine"
    2. Select your routine
    3. Right click the selection and choose "Save as a Routine"
    4. Name it
    5. Now you are ready to use it...... Choose the insertion point
    6. Right click, choose "Load a Routine"
    7. Choose the routine and click OK.
    8. Look at clock and see time saved.

    Seriously, been playing with Vixen for 4 years and this is the absolute First Time I have heard of it. I have a bunch sequences that have different effects and "routines" for the different display elements. When I need an effect or routine, I open them up and copy and paste. THIS IS SO MUCH EASIER. And I can clean up my sequence folder. I have over 40 files with very long names
