QLC+ 5 Preview - Update #2

Post by mcallegari » Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:08 pm



What's the best occasion of starting a good 2017 other than showing two new videos about the QLC+ 5 development status ?

2016 has been a very busy year for me, with almost 2 jobs and 8 QLC+ 4 releases. That didn't leave me the time I wanted to work on QLC+ 5.
But here it is at last, with a blasting number of new features that I hope you will appreciate.
Everything I'm doing is toward an easier usability and a faster workflow.

As usual, everything you see is a work in progress, and there is nothing more than what I showed in the videos, so please don't
start asking about this and that.

I've got so many more giant features to implement and it is only a matter of time before they land upstream.
Speaking about time, the QLC+ 5 development is ongoing already since almost 2 years, and, if you're wondering
about a release date, that gives an indication of how slowly it is proceeding. :cry:

The good news is that I think I have consolidated some "under the hood" things that will allow QLC+ to run properly on a large number of computers and devices with different screen resolutions.

Well, let me know what you think !

Wow, this is incredible!

I can't believe you're doing all this along the whole maintaining and bug-fixing stuff.
Nearly the whole time of the videos I thought "Is this also working... Could it... Yes it is!". Only one question about a feature I couldn't spot so far: Is it also possible to select multiple widgets/fixtures and drag them around together?

It really makes me happy to see development is going on. Thanks for all and keep up the good work. If I can support you in any way please let me know!

It's indeed in my plans, cause it comes pretty natural with all that dragging and dropping.
However, at the moment I haven't figured out yet a smart way to do it...but I will :)

Great great Work
Cant wait for release . Ive learned so much about lightning with the help of the community from qlc and the programm itself. Ive even tried expensive Programms like sunlite first c and others. But for our work qlc is the best Programm to connect al lot of different applications like resolume , enttec pixelmapper and abelton live for our shows.
I earnestly want to say THANK YOU four your great work!!!

I have an idea, If this program is full working version.
Mabye its be good to release current version of QLC+5 as a test version (just like you releace new version of 4.10.6 or like microsoft release new vwersion of windows).
Person which will testing this new QLC give you some ideas how to improve software at the begin.
