    Quite independantly of bens efforts, i've been looking at some options for an art-net bridge. I've finally got this running.. its based on a low cost miniITX board, and usb-dongles using Linux Lighting Architecture.. An Art-net plug in for vixen would be really good.

    I'm not even sure how to approach this problem having never done any plugsin for vixen..

    Hate to sound like a broken record but is there anyone interested in helping with this? The reason I ask is there are three of us working on ArtNet projects and the big missing piece right now is a Vixen plug-in.

    I'll chime in here as well, and make it a little interesting. I'll supply someone an art-net controller and some tripix leds to work with...

    I'm not sure what you are overlooking. Does this mean you are interesting and picking up this project? Or are you suggesting we a capable of doing the work ourselves?

    Sorry.. sometimes you write it one way.. and it's read another. I'm interested in looking into it. Based on my indepth study of the topic so far (10 minutes now), this appears to just be a question of handling UDP packets. I was assuming that you guys are as capable as I am, and thus I must have overlooked something, that makes this a more difficult problem.

    It's pretty late here now.. but I'll try and read some more tomorrow.
    (PM me with any details you think appropriate as to how you think things should operate)

    Disclaimer: I've never done a Vixen plugin, but I have done plugins for other devices (eg. WinAmp (RTP plugin = streaming UDP packets)).

    Read further back in the thread (should have done that before google I guess),
    and there's links to an SDK with that ARTNET stack already.

    Just need to review what the hooks are for a Vixen plugin.
    (Darn.. now I'll never get to sleep, and I have to teach in the am)

    First off thank you for your interest, second GET TO BED. ;)

    You are correct in your assessment its not at all difficult. All we really need is data streamed via UDP in the artnet format from vixen. In fact its really a half step from the DMXPro or OpenDMX code, since artnet is basically DMX over Ethernet.
    There are a number of resources out there some of which you found already, but below is one that will make things go even easier. DMX-Workshop is what we are using for our development on the firmware side. But for you the install contains a couple of example apps and dlls that you may find usefull. Further you can use it to test and debug as you are developing.
