FS#5330 - 64-Bit-Kernel und GUI erforderlich

Show-Dateien werden immer größer und so leistungsfähig DMXC auch ist, es ist stark eingeschränkt, wenn es eine 32-Bit-Architektur bleibt. Das Programm beginnt zu verzögern und wird bei großen Mengen an Geräten und Programmen sehr, sehr langsam. Bitte ziehen Sie eine Version ohne Ausgabe-Plugins außer Art-Net und sACN in Betracht, um die volle 64-Bit-Architektur zu nutzen. Bitte erwägen Sie auch, Unterstützung für Easy View 2 Visualizer einzuschließen.

Show files are becoming larger and as powerful as DMXC is, it is severely limited by remaining a 32 bit architecture. Program will begin to lag and become very very slow with large amounts of fixtures and programming. Please consider a version without a need for output plugins except Art-Net and sACN to utilize full 64 bit architecture. Also please consider including support for Easy View 2 visualizer.

We know that a 64bit architecture has some benefits ;) The Umbra is a 64bit program and we have plans for the Kernel and the GUI as well (actually already for a few years). We also did some tests with a 64bit test build. However, there are some boundary conditions which prevent us to change the architecture yet. One part of that is, that the Stage View, the Input Assignment and some other windows use XNA, a 32bit game engine. This game engine can not be replaced easily. We need to fully redesign those windows.

For the Kernel there is the DMX interface plugins issue you mentioned and some other stuff. However, we will not release a version with only Art-Net and sACN. Instead we have other plans to fix this issue.

Addressing your wishes about Easy View 2: This is not on us. Nicolaudie (the manufacturer of Easy View) did only open the API for Easy View 1 / 3D Easy View. Thats why we can only control this version. For the later versions, this is not possible for us. So this part of the feature request will be not realized.

Last but not least: Please separate different topics into different tickets. Then it is much easier to address them and close the tickets individually if needed.
