    Will you be involved in the new GDTF standard? (http://www.gdtf-share.com)
    This is a new protocol that standardises the communication between previsualisation software, consoles and lighting fixtures. It sounds very interesting.

    If collective replies/opinions here carry any weight, I think it sounds like a great idea. If it becomes a thing, I'd very much like to see it implemented in WYSIWYG, as the ability to reliably exchange data with MA consoles and with Vectorworks would be very useful to me.

    CAST Software is taking a wait and see approach here. The idea is definitely a good one. If all the automated lighting fixture manufacturers come onboard and deliver the information needed (along with timely updates for fixture firmware changes) AND if the protocol is currently able or can/will be extended to cover all features that allow visualization to function properly across all visualizers, then yes, we will adopt the protocol.
