Vixen 3.5 Update 2 ready for download.

The Vixen team strongly recommends installing Vixen 3.5 Update 2 as it fixes numerous Bugs.

Some highlights to Update 2 include:

· Numerous important bug fixes, (including issues with Lipsync, Video effect, Custom Prop and Marks amongst others)

· Improvements to the Mark Collection, Custom prop, FPP Export (Add universe file, saves calculating and manually adding in the universe information to FPP), Layers, Count down effect and Text effect.

· New Effects Toolbar. This is turned off by default and can be enabled in the Sequence Editor View menu. Allows the current Effects list to be hidden, increasing the useable real-estate. Also right click on the Effects toolbar for options, including Text Position and ability to hide Effect groups or Effects so you only display in the Toolbar what you use and hides Effects you may never use. See video at VixenLights YouTube channel.

Not sure if this is a bug or an oversight, but if I click on the check for updates, it says I have the latest update at 3.5u1

Scratch that, It just found it, obviously it needed a little coffee to go have a look.

Thanks for all the work everyone does behind the scenes.
