What, you setup lights for more than one one holiday? What’s wrong with you? Nothing, you say… I bet it is a bad case of CLAP. I hope so anyway, because I seem to have that problem and just can’t stop.
If the above describes you, then you’ll probably be interested in a new and much requested feature completed (but not fully tested) yesterday that allows you to have multiple profiles.
What’s a profile? The easiest way to describe it is that a profile is a pointer to a data folder. As you may already know, your Vixen 3 information is stored in your My Documents\Vixen 3 folder. Right now, all your information is stored there: system settings, controllers, preview configuration, patching, sequences, everything. So, what’s wrong with this? Nothing, if it is working for you?
But, if you’ve got a display for Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Chanukah, Labor Day, Memorial Day, the 4th of July and your birthday, you may have noticed that this can be a major pain. Each of these holidays has different elements, props, patching and possibly controllers. There are almost no commonalities between each of these displays except possibly the controllers. Patching lets you setup a completely different data folder for each of these holidays that is managed within the Vixen 3 program.
