I was just wondering how many VJs are interested in controlling also lighting equipment like scanners, moving heads and PARs, etc.? It would be interesting to use the PARs and scanners of a club to "support" the videos. For example something like Philips "Ambilight". Changing the color of the lighting equipment according to the dominating color of the video. Did anybody do this before? Any ideas how this could be done?
I was thinking about Resolume's DMX capabilities (btw. will Resolume support DMX in V3?)
I think there are two approaches:
1) If it's possible to send video to Flash: Use ActionScript and send some DMX to an external DMX controller.
2) probably the better: could a FreeFrame plugin "read" the video-output data and send some MIDI or DMX (or something else?) to a (software) DMX controller?
Looking forward to some ideas!
