Wow just shy of 2000 dwnlds and nobody is talking about this Herculean freak of nature??!! Never has the browser been in a separate container that can be slung onto another desktop. Because I am working with 8-decks, II see many applications for this skin. And some things I just don’t even understand what the hell their purpose is or why other stuff is not present like waves. Or any reference point whatsoever for what is playing. 🤷‍♂️

So
1.How do we know whether a song is about to end or looping or about to hit a break? There is no visual information from any of the 8 decks on the time elapsed, or peaks and valleys.

2.X and Y axis must be very important for you to make them one of the primary features... so please explain what they do 🙏🏻

3.its in beta so I imagine you want to know about any bugs. I’m using a MacBook Pro with High Sierra. I am creating multiple desktops to group the windows the way I like. Browser is stretched out nice and comfy with his own screen. When I grab a corner on the video windows to stretch them they flash like a portal into the “browser dimension”. Unless I drag the corners just right. So a nice feature would be a pull down menu or option in settings to choose {small medium large} and just size all the video windows at once rather than dragging corners.

4. Would you give a brief description of the ideal workflow you had in mind when you created this skin? I get the feeling I can do things now I never even thought of.

5. Thank you for choosing my favorite color as the base for this skin.... Teal has always been the color for me. I painted one of my walls this color when I was a teen. And the Jacksonville Jaguars are my NFL team for life. Win lose or lose.

🙏🏻

Thanks,
In fact this skin is born from some widgets already done and some recent talks one about 8 decks with play and pfl , the other one about multiple windows skins

1) yes, in fact there is no current ways to know times, cues and loops, because i test this skin more like a digital signage with videos in replay mode
have to add this, (rhythm zone / window in development)
currently looking for a way to ... scratchzones/rhythmzones are (seems to be) limited to 4 decks colors(was 6 in early v8), songpos however can do more

2) more likely to follow the VB look but found stems this way are really usable, they need

3) yes it's beta.. and creating it raise some undiscovered yet issues in skin engines. saved many window position and sizes, size with multiple windows, some drawings redraws or element initial position are badly known bugs now , redraw of transparent areas is well known
Render differ with experimentalSkinEngine helping in some case, adding some other bugs in other cases


4) no real ideal workflow in mind but digital signage and 8 lines input mixer, Mainly experiment out of common ways...
so that yes, makeing people get the feeling they can do things now they never even thought of is one of them ;)

5) chance sometimes does things well xD or maybe VB team are Jacksonville Jaguars' fans either , its close to their color set

it's the source of inspiration for the look, that's why the name is prepend with "vb_" ;)

Here are how Waves and packed waves can display / select (8 tracks for the preview) right now


[mod; in future, could you "view image" and use that as a link, just makes it easier for me to wrap in bbc]
