    Default Custom Props Editor

    I've taken some time off from V3 development over the last 12-18 months.. But, i'm back and have been reading through a bunch of old threads an such and I'm working on an addition to the Preview....

    Drum roll please... well... its not THAT exciting I think... but here's where I'm going....

    The idea is to give the user a way to 'draw' their custom prop on the screen using the tried and true x/y corrdinate screen. A user adds a number of 'channels (strings)' to the prop and can select that individual coordinates are assigned to a specific channel.. so that when that channel is told to turn on, the elements in the prop that are assigned to the channel in the grid will light up in that specific color...

    The files generate when you are done creating your 'prop' are generic enough so that they can then be shared with other users in the community.

    It's no where near complete yet, but I hope to have something ready in the coming weeks... Just wanted to get a grasp on how much desire (if any) there was in the community for something like this before I spent too much time on it...


    I had my daughter play with it and she came up with the silly face...


    Thoughts??

    This would have saved me a lot of time this year with my custom star tree topper. Awesome.

    PS will there be a place in Vixen where these elements will be stored for reuse?

    Love it. It would be nice if you have the ability to load a dimmed JPG in the background to use as a template for the prop you're creating.

    Alternatively allow copy/paste or import/export from a program that does allow loading a JPG in the background of the grid (e.g. Excel - CSV will do).

    Yes.. the idea is that once you create the 'prop' its saved in your profile and you will be able to share/consume other users'props'
