This might be usefull since OLA now supports a few Dimmerpacks directly.
When you want to address multiple Dimmers you have to create one Universe for each device.
With a mapper one could copy channels beween Universes. This would be really usefull for that usecase.

We would need to discuss how to set up a map-file. And how to avoid loops in the mapping.

A possible syntax would be 'universe-01.map'
1:u3c3 #reads: fill channel1-data with data from universe3 channel3

(this would copy data from universe3 to universe1 and reverse the color-order from RGB to BGR).

This is related to the patcher V2 design. I'm going to leave this open until we have a list of requirements. Then it'll come under that project.

Support for filters to do things like add virtual dimmer channels to RGB fixtures: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/open-lighting/Kpqr0b3p-U0/BIiatHH69DIJ


A filter to pad a universe to a certain size with 0's or a specified value, to solve issues like #281.

Gamma correction filter.


Sustained output. Never creates more data but can be set to output the same data ever 1 sec without input from a client or other input port.


This should also be as intuitive as possible from the ui and clients. I think it makes a lot of sense to think about this as a graph (in mathematical terms) or a pipeline.


Swap RGB channels around in a fixture/LED strip:
