Spaghetti 1.8.1.15 Released - New stuff coming next!
« on: August 18, 2009, 08:53:30 pm »
I fixed a couple bugs and released 1.8.1.15.
(1) Fixed the scanner settings pitch/yaw/etc sliders so when you right click on them they return to center and update the frame.
(2) Fixed bug with the Blank Hold setting on Scanner Settings.  Try it and see if you can improve your frame quality.

WHAT'S NEXT?
Total destruction of all that is working to make new changes including:
(1) Multiple projector support
(2) TTL / DMX support
(3) Ability to adjust scanner settings while playing shows.
(4) Ability to send output to scanner while creating shows.  This will allow you to click on items in the browser and see them projected by the scanner.  It will also allow you to see the images output to the scanner as your move the mouse over the time line.
(5) Ability to pause, jump ahead, and jump back during show playback.
(6) Add feature so that a line moves along the timeline as you play projects.

I think that will be enough for 1.9.  What do you think?

With the major changes I could use some Beta testers who are willing to take development builds and try them out.  There will be lots of room for bugs!

Also, the addition of a new tool that will convert point based ILDA file shows to frame based ILDA file shows.  This will allow playing back ILDA file shows created by certain other systems so that they will be syncronized to the music.

I split the TTL info to a seperate thread since I think it will be useful as a reference later.

Just tried this build with a few shows, Spaghetti is really beginning to become useable.  I actually watched a perfectly smooth 'insomnia' show via sound card DAC with EzAudDac 1.05!  I see you have tuned the output algorithm a bit for RIYA which is working very well also. 
keep it up!

I just got multi-projector support somewhat working (at least in prototype mode). My garage shows are going to be so much cooler!  I still have a lot of work to go but at least the pieces are there.

Multiple projector and device support = 10% code to control the devices and 90% code just to configure the stuff in the GUI.  Sheesh!  GUI work is definitely the time consuming and challenging part of writing Spaghetti.  I may have to jack up the price after this release!

what a lot of writers have done is keep the original price of the single projector version and offer a quad projector version as 'pro'.  In the case of he-laserscan the single projector version is free.

I have seen that.  The free HE-laserscan version is more of a demo though.  It isn't just single projector, it is single layer.  And that makes is pretty useless for creating shows.

Things are getting there!  How do you connect one of your DACs to one of your  projectors in the new version you ask?  Easy.  You just drag the DAC onto the projector and they are connected.  :)
