    Well; Dan came back from his cruise and has checked in his new code.
    This release is courtesy of Dan Kulp.


    Dan made a youtube video explaining how the new feature works.


    Very Cool Dan!

I'm now back from vacation and was able to push all the changes to github and got enough stuff working to create a short (17 minutes, so not really short) introduction of what I'm trying to do with it and what currently works (and what doesn't, found a bug while recording):"

    watch the video to learn the new capability. Basically, you can now expose the channels that make up a model and drop different effects on each.


    Possibilities expand!

    Very nice! While not a full blown grid editor, this will open up a whole new world in xl for pixel editing. Great job.
    Thanks to everyone for all their hard work!
