    Default 2020 Wish List

    This is a long wish list and I know plenty have either been discussed before or are in the process of being looked at.
    I also very much wish to start looking and helping at the development side of things. Can anyone point me in a very basic direction of learning and requirements?

    Moving head control discussed.
    A way to visualize the movement. I was able to somewhat achieve this by colouring the effect to show position (e.g green left) on a straight line, but it really did not help. I used the custom values for most of the control and pulse where possible. When using the standard effects for moving head or other dmx fixtures it would be good if there can be the 0-255 values beside the 0-100 on the curve or intensity drawing.
    The moving heads that I have also incorporate speed of movement control, prisms, strobe, colour wheel etc which may be quite hard to incorporate
    I also had to set base points so that they do not turn backwards, point to the ground or towards each other.

    Various old effects converted to location based discussed

    Ability to use multiple previews as a location based viewpoint Not 3D discussed

    Ability to reorder the controllers discussed
    Certainly not a big issue it would be mainly for my OCD

    Ability to remove and insert channels on a controller discussed
    Not a big issue at all as it still has not really affected me even though I have hundreds of thousands channels that are unpatched. It may be an issue in future though.

    Ability to group elements (individual pixels) on the preview set up screen. discussed

    New Lightning effect. An effect that can be used to simulate a lightning strike.

    Thanks for starting this thread, this will be a useful place to collect ideas about what's currently on the wish list of the user base.

    These are all reasonable requests, and as you noted, most are already on our to-do list.

    As for helping with development, well, that's a big question. It's a very big project and it's hard to give a comprehensive overview. The best thing to do there is ask questions and we'll point you in the right direction. It's best to pick an area of interest and start there, branching out as your comfort level in the project grows.

    Is uploading port config to controllers something that is possible? I currently use falcon F16v3 and Pixlite, the old p12's are retired now. The other controllers are either stand alone or FPP and I was extremely happy when you made the FPP channel export.

    We have not yet looked into uploading any config to the controllers themselves, just the FPP output config you may already be using.

    I may have missed it, but is there a release date and new feature list planned for a stable release for 2020?

    I've been wanting to ask that question myself.

    There will be a release coming soon. There have been many bug fixes and a few features added. This year seems to be flying along faster than expected.
