    Default Vixen 3 Development Priority Poll

    We posted a few weeks back to solicit your ideas for improvements to Vixen. Now we're putting those results into poll form to try and gauge the priority across the user base.

    I agree. I would like to use effects such as the curtain on my whole house. I thought I had in the past??? The curtain is very much like Wipe so perhaps the two could combine.

    I use the scheduler. I would like to make updates to sequences without stopping the entire show. I would also suggest the ports are initialized when the show begins.

    What do you mean by this? Are you talking about the ports used to communicate to controllers? If so, that's not very likely. The ports need to be open for the engine to run, and the engine needs to be running before the scheduler can run. What is the actual problem you're looking to solve?
    Keep in mind that many of us use more than one simultaneous schedule or have schedules overlap in time for various practical purposes, so how would restarting the engine work with that in mind?

    Yes, the ports communicating to controllers. I have had the show running and no response from controllers. It happened last night and I don't know why? Normally it would happen when Vixen is running before the network and usb are plugged in. I saw someone post the same issue.

    Sounds like there's an underlying problem here that needs to be addressed. If you haven't already done so, you may want to raise a ticket so we can explore it in more detail.

    BTW, not trying to be difficult. Just as specific as possible to really zero in on the development schedule.
