    Default Tha addition of "z" and the capabilty for HLS to process imported 3d files for PP's

    Yikes , that was a mouth full to spit out .

    Joe

    You know where I am heading with this request

    I know it is probably wish full thinking but this would be a power full addition if possible .

    Sorry.

    HLS will NOT have Z or 3D preview.

    Actually my MegaTree element IS a 3D tree -- fixed with a view from one location.

    I saw a lot of fuss about a 3D visualizer in LOR threads and others sequencer's threads. People saying YES, I want it.

    HLS's Preview is a DirectX gaming engine for speed and low resources. Most people don't understand the math and the amount of data calculations that goes into painting a little light (Pixel) on a screen and attempting to update that light at 25msec, 50msec, or 100msec. It's not bad with incans or leds strings -- it grows exponentially with pixels --- and I believe it's the pixel guys who want 3D.

    I shake my head -- if someone spends the time getting a 3D preview running -- most, if not all users will be disappointed. It won't handle 25msec timing -- may not handle 50msec.

    At times I wonder why people want to do Christmas lighting -- to have a show outside or watch it on a computer screen as a preview or visualizer.

    To me, a Preview is a tool that lets you see what your display may look like (not exactly - but close and not to scale). What will someone learn from their sequence by looking DOWN on a MegaTree or moving inside looking up.

    3D Sounds cool -- but to me -- it's a waste of time.

    HLS has a multitude of capabilities and as such is my sequencer of choice. Imho refining and adding sequencing options is more important. How many people need this capability. We should also remember that the reason for all this is to celebrate Christmas and the kids enjoying it. Just my opinion.

    If you have not used the .png capabilities within HLS , I would suspect you would never use this feature .

    Also this capability would require the use of elements that have a 360 viewing angle to be fully appreciated .

    Cheers
    and am happy to stir up some controversy !!!!!!

    I do not want this for preview Joe

    I was hoping you could incorporate z into the x-y matrix just as Madrix has it .

    Sorry for not being clear .

    You know full well I could give a rats A$$ about preview

    Don't understand.

    A 3D model as seen from a point in space produces a 2D image --- you can place that 2D image into a PP today.

    I would assume that the software that produces the 3D model would also produce the 2D image.

    So ... I'm lost as to what the request is.

    I too think a 3D preview is a waste of time and resources. the 2D preview today gives a good idea of your layout from the audiences point of view.

    I can see a need for 3D when mapping cube type elements, but madrix does a great job of this and getting any of our sequencers to do it is imho a waste of valuable resources as will only be used by a few.

    Now to start learning HLS as it will be the sequencer of choice this year with nutcracker elements and all being run on the FPP
