Its great to see that vixen is not dead as it has served a large number of the community and has been a great sequencing program that is free but unfortunately wasn't able to keep up with the onset of high channel pixel based sequencing, even though AussiePhil ran it with 9000 channels but he used scripts to do the sequencing.
This all now appears to be changing and we all look forward to seeing what KC and his crew can produce but in my opinion software at this level should at least have some sort of fee to compensate the designers for the ever increasing level of work needed to produce such software.
I have always said that KC should at least put a paypal donation in Vixen - let people who WANT to give him $ send it to him easily. I wont be using vixen this year, but will probably go back to it next year.
In emails to him earlier this month I said I'd probably try somethin different and run LSP most nights, but Vixen 3 on a few nights with old, but updated sequences from last year. That way I get the main sequencing done in LSP, but get to use Vixen to see how it goes this year as well.
The module function sounds very useful particularly for the DIY community where there are various types of controllers floating around with different protocol types. Plus also unique interactivity through live inputs.
I'll certainly be interested in reading about the other 3 parts when the news is published.
Never being a previous Vixen user, I really like the way KC explains the sequencing from a users intent point of view, it sure makes a lot of sense to objectize this and will make the users job much easier to create a seqeunce. I will be ready to give vixen a try when this version comes out.
