I'm excited to see what new features lay within the Version 5 update. I hope that we can see a integration with Virtual DJ in the near future.

Thanks for all the hard work on this I think it's by far a better lighting software than what's available currently for budget lighting control.

I have just finished at local theatre doing some video mapping. I know my way round Resolume Arena but struggling with QLC+ .
I wonder with the demand increasing for projection artists in Theatres that there would be more need for integration with products
like Resolume arena.. (i'm bias) and other mapping software :)

I had it running with simple desk locally through artnet autoDMX map but a loss to running through Virtual desk...

Having a couple of shows coming up really think there's a gap QLC could fill

Very exciting! I just made a donation - thanks for all your hard work! This was a great resource as I learned lighting design, now I'm doing work contracting as a lighting designer and I owe a lot of that to the help from QLC+ and community. I'm very much looking forward to working with QLC+ 5.

I know it's not the question you would like to here, and the interest about an intended release date has been noted before ;),
since earlier this year we are keen to see the new version. At the same time i do undestand that a project like this can be tricky ...

As we're intending to overhaul our virtual console completly we were wondering about the release date too.

> Would you recommend redesigning our rather complex VC setup in QLC4,x or would you rather suggest to wait for the next update - any chance this is happening within X months?

Great massimo.
I don't know too. For me the virtual consolle is good like now, I see only little thing.. I would give you a feedback and I add some ideas brainstormed.

- buttons background with multicolor (2,3,4..)
- Icons standard to use (gobo,..)
- Avoid the red border on solo frame or use one that you can choose..
- Move a group of buttons together.
- submaster assigned to a channel independent of frame
- maybe some new field to avoid complex looback and widget not necessary (specially for bpm).
- indipendent screen resolution (?)
- use time widget with sliders, knob are not easy to use with touch ( I use a loopback slider).
- a master velocity and pause (like on hardware consolle)?

They are only little feedback, like I say.. For me VC is great like now.

First of all big thanks to you! QLC is the best free DMX software there is. The program is ideal to make your own layout (VC) and you can edit nearly everything.
I now use QLC for more than 2 years now and I still discover things I didn't knew before.

When I use QLC, I use it for different projects, but sometimes I need a part of one project for another project.
It would be useful to be able to import a part of a project into another.

I don't know if this feature is already implemented into QLC 5, but this would be a very helpful feature.

Again I am very grateful for your work, I couldn't done this myself.

Keep up the good work!
