DasLight 5 needs additional features; without adding new features, there is no reason to upgrade.
One of the most important features DasLight is currently lacking is a crossfader between two static scenes. (Example: You have a row of LED pars and a scene, one single step, which is alternating blue and gold. You have a 2nd scene, one single step, which is alternating white and pink.) DasLight needs a way to fade the first scene into the next scene.
I do see the difficulties with doing this with multiple steps with different fixtures, but doing this between single steps should be possible. A second way to approach the problem by using a MIDI fader to control outputs between scenes. Just like an audio fader.
The FX generator in DasLight 2 and 3, there was a random color generator. It is missing in DasLight 4. Please, bring this back.
The FX generator only controls RGB LEDs; we need the ability and flexibility to control HEX fixtures for better color mixing. In particular, adding white and UV LEDs to the FX generator would greatly improve my shows.
show loading and saving times are huge and take a fantastic/unreasonable amount of time to save and load. My current laptop has an SSD drive and an Nvidia video card. Many of my shows are over 150Mb.
