    My bad. I tend to exchange PC, Workstation and Desktop interchangeably.

    Vm player will need a pre-made vm to use. VM workstation likewise, unless you load a fresh copy of windows. The latter is possible as activation won't shut the os down for a few days.

    Loving the sound of the X/Y color sweeps. Also was wondering if an output module could be made that dumps the E1.31 output into a temporary file (or on the fly if easy enough) and then converts it to FPP format for David's (dpitts) Falcon Pi Player. That would solve one of my big problems of running my show from my PC and using it for everything else also. For $35 plus incidentals it's a lot cheaper than any cheap PC I could throw together as a show computer. And a lot smaller as a bonus.

    Cheers,
    Rowan

    It was not the cost or the size, it was teh fact that the rhasberry pi creates exact 50ms time slices. In xlights , Matt Brown, mentioned that when he set a 50ms interrupt in Windows he did nt always get 50ms. This causes some timing issues.

    My big love of the pi is how accurate my timing markls are.

    It would be nice if Vixen 3 offered to create a Pi Player file. The file is just a binary file of all teh data from a sequence in 50ms slices. Currently the only way to get a pi player file is to use the Convert tab in xLights.

    Speaking of which, what binary file will Vixen 3 offer as an output so it can be added to the Convert tab?

    On another note, will Vixen 3 allow people to create a file that can be pasted into the Vixen 3 timeline.

    LOR has lcb files
    Vixen has vir files
    HLS has hlsnc files

    People have written tools (Bob in LOR land has written a Papagayno addin to do lip synch to music, effect generators for text at an angle and other things). He then produces a lcb file that can be pasted anywher ein someones sequence.
    Others have created Vixen vir file addins.


    Is the architecture of Vixen 3 assume you must create effects only inside of Vixen 3?
    BTW, Nutcracker has no grid, only high level effects applied to targets. This is cool, but does make it that people need to know how to code in C++ if they want to add new effects.,
