WayneKremer said:Sean, how about enhancing the text effect to scroll the text at an angle? Also would like to see pictures have some way of being off the matrix, then scrolling onto it from top, bottom or angle.
It really seems that you can take everything within your setup and make it so much more detailed (as examples above). Thank you for everything you have provided to us!
That would be incredible! While you are at it, you may want to consider adding a spin option. Imagine snowflakes falling and spinning (slowly) during the fall. Too cool...smeighan said:Also plan on having images (png,gif,bmp) to be able to be given a vector (direction and speed). This would, for example, allow gif's of music notes to fall down from the top of the tree.
This pretty easy.Denny said:Rather than building a mega tree or rectangular matrix, I was wondering if anyone has thought about building a globe/ball and using Nutcracker with it. I envision something along the lines of the globe used at Disneyworld Epcot for Illuminations. Could the globe pixels be laid out for sequencing using Nutcracker?

Greg.Ca said:For me the best effect would be 'real time' text input. On my show I love to go out often dressed as Santa and greet all of the cars who come to visit our display often answering their questions. Having myself greeting the cars and keeping civality and order on the street allows my neighbors to 'tolerate' my display.
I think it would be great if it would be possible to enter a childs name and have that name appear scrolling on a matrix or megatree in 'real time'. "Merry Christmas Sally Smith" or something similar.
Imagine talking to a family in their car and radioing back to an operator of the display in the house with a walkie talkie. On the weekends our display already requires several 'greeters' and we have already use walkie talkies to stay in contact with each other.
I have to first decide if this is politically 'correct'. I would like some opinions if my idea is politically correct.
Sometimes I have advanced knowledge of a family, co-worker, or friend that will be visiting our display at a specific time and it would be great to welcome the 'Smith Family' by having their name appear scrolling on as matrix.
Thoughts?? Political correctness?? --Greg--
JCMarksafb said:Might be a dumb question, but what if there were a button to create annomated gif files from the effects you create? I am running out of names for my effects and can't remember exactly what each effect does, not to mention trying to read the names in clipboards. You might already have this and I just haven't found out about it yet.
Thanks in advance for your time. GREAT PROGRAM!
