    Can you import single channels or groups of channels from Vixen 2.x? Just a thought, if so, maybe an edited version for the 3d Object suite could help this out. Currently it just sets Event values but I imagine it can be edited for whatever output you need.
    It's just a quick thought, I'm not sure there'd be interest or exactly how it would be done, but it is an interesting thought.

    Morning Chris
    I dont know how far this will go but this forum has given me a lot of help and from it came this piece of code.
    i like what it does, I know its a long way round to get the servos to do what i want but it works for me.
    As for vixen 2 I knew there was something in there to do with skulls and servos but could never get it to work on my computer, I used Vixen 3 and still do
    although when i changed from using a seriel arduino to the D1 with e1.31 which was my ultimate goal vixen didnt perform as well the servos would jump or skip bits of data so the movement wasn't as smooth, not all the time just enough to be annoying. Thats when i went to xLights which proved to be more stable just a bit more of a learning curve.

    I am currently working on a 3 axis skull with 4 servos 1 pan, 2 for tilt and 1 for the jaw. That leaves me 2 servos for possibly the eyes and eye lids if I ever get that far
    I have looked at controlling the skull with a joystick and recording the data for playback but at the minite i have to work with what ive got.
    But if anyone can make this better it will be someone from this forum.

    Simon.
