DMXIS Platinum Wish List

Post by RichG » Mon Nov 12, 2018 7:55 pm

I had one of these going for DMXIS, figure I'll start one early for Platinum.

After playing around with the Platinum Demo, here are some things that come to mind:
  • Have a way to report 'wishes' (and bugs) much like THIS forum section at Fractal Audio.
  • Freely move fixtures around DMX addressing. Click & drag to new positions... or better yet, make the interface 'fixture' based where you can number the fixtures sequentially and have the DMX addresses automatically assigned based on fixture settings.
  • Hide Unused / Hide Selected. Sometimes a fixture may have channels within its profile that will never be used. For example, if I'm doing everything through DMX control, I'm probably not going to use the Macro channel on a fixture. If that's the case I'd prefer to hide it.
  • Remember Master dimmer setting upon exit / Save per show.
  • Allow Controls/Effect/Perform window to be narrower or an option to show/reveal that pane.
  • In Controls window, Have a Show Selected fixture mode. In this mode, only the selected fixture would show up in the fader row.
  • In Controls window, Have multiple rows. Instead of one row of faders, 2 or 4 fader rows would be nice.
  • In Controls window, Have 'saved' views. This would be go along with the Show Selected fixture mode. Saved views would be a group of selected fixtures... for example, A saved view might be 'All Back Washes' or 'Ground Movers'.
  • Create Virtual faders that allow control over multiple faders (For fixtures without a master dimmer)
  • Some way to assign Color Harmony to a group of selected fixtures. This can probably be done with a Macro, but I haven't seen one yet.

A way to visualise derby and laser"star" effects would be interesting. Wouldn't have to be that accurate just give you a general idea of how it might look.

When selecting a fader/channel in the lower section of the Controls frame, a brief (3 seconds) message pops up in the lower portion of the Channel frame (example: "CM GAuv | DMX 150 | Ch 78").
I would find it very useful if this message did not disappear after 3 seconds, but only after you either select another fader/channel, or you click in the Visualizer frame to de-select everything.
