Hello, dear Dave and D-pro users.

Unfortunately, recently I found out that ENTTEC has discontinued D-Pro support. That's very sad to me, because I have chosen it to be my main tool for controlling the lights.

It still needs tweaks here and there and now I will be pointing them out.
1) It's about the scroll in the library window. https://youtu.be/yKZ11R8qEg4

2) It's about the demand of more fx moving scrips. I'm aware, that moving sequences can be achieved by setting up position cues and then putting them into cuelist for interchange, but setting position parameter for every fixture is too time-consuming. For example, I want fixtures to do "triangular moves"... In order to achieve that I would have to set 3 precise position points for each fixture. Instead, I'm asking to give me triangular moving fx with adjustable x/y size, speed, of course, spread parameter, e.t.c. And, ofcourse, as I've mentioned before in this forum, It would be great to have as many of those shapes as possible.
Dear Dave, I'm not coder, but these days you have chat GPT - just give it demand and it will write/fix code for you...

Looking to hear asap, hope this forum will not become abandoned. Thanks.

I agree with your library scroll request. Was thinking that last week.

There is a post on here from a few years ago requesting more fx scripts - someone had similar concerns to you. These moving head shapes aren't something I use personally, but the more the merrier I say!

You are doing some cool stuff with D-Pro!

I mucked around in ChatGPT making Python scripts(not a programmer either)
It came up with the attached scripts.

Don't have a visualiser/venue to test.

Dear Ryan, thank You for your effort, but these shapes are not usable, they don't represent actual movements, unfortunately.
