    Question - Is there a way to retransmit DMX data from WYSIWYG? For example, an ARTNET output to send to other software?

    HI Ben,
    Why? as far as I am aware you can just pick up the artnet stream from any network connected device (in the IP range and subnet)

    Wysiwyg will 'Feedback' to consoles which are connected via 'Visualizer Streams' (pan/tilt etc) depending on what the Manufacturer has implemented with Wysiwyg.
    Not sure about PSN or RTTrPM if Wyg just receives or if it can transmit. Dany will know!

    This is not possible, but I have the same question as Sander: why would you need this?

    Shaun is referring to CAST's AutoFocus protocol, which can indeed send fixture control information/parameters to consoles on which their manufacturer implemented the ability (via their proprietary connectivity driver -- this is not possible, atm, via Art-Net or sACN). While Intensity, Colour, Colour Mix, Gobo, Prism, Focus, Iris and Zoom information is useful, the most useful is Pan & Tilt, as you can easily send one or more fixture to any point in 3D space, by simply clicking there: select the fixtures, turn them on (on the console or via WYSIWYG's LIVE mode Intensity Designer Tool), right-click in the (again LIVE mode) Shaded View, click Focus in the pop-up menu, then click anywhere in the Shaded View to point all the selected fixtures to that point. (Naturally, you can also choose a Focus Position in the LIVE mode Focus Designer Tool to point them there.) If you are connected to the live rig at the same time, the real-life fixtures will do the same, of course. :) .. Honestly, guys, after all this time working at CAST, that is STILL one of the coolest things to see! :)
