Light9 is a suite of tools for playing music and controlling DMX theater lighting.
Old wiki page (2005). lightsim.
Main repo is in darcs. There is a mirror at github.
Now using Raspberry Pi camera to grab video reference: vidref.
New effect system: demo video 1
Notes for the next redesign, which is mostly for accepting more controller input at once (QuNeo and BCF2000) and making it faster to create and edit effects.
A test of the new curve editor, which needs to display 50+ curves at once and zoom them smoothly. Click in the body to start a zooming animation test.
Test of effect preview (from this UI sketch) showing expressions with their inputs and outputs represented as curve and color timelines. Drag a constant to change it.
RDF patches are passed between all components for live updates. Knockoutjs-style auto dependency tracking arranges for GUI updates to happen whenever data changes.
Use RDF for config.
