This looks actually as if it will work, we have made some tests in a separate application and will soon start to implement the solution in Neon.
OK, so how do you plan to implement this?
I would like to get a small visualization frame within the Information pane. This would be MY highest priority. ;-)
It would also be great to get a visualization in the main pane - maybe as background for all views or as a separate view.
And last but not least the full-screen-visualization...
The initial test I have made is by embedding it in a container as a view (Play queue etc).
Full screen should be quite simple, when the actual engine is in place - a small frame is tricker but should still be possible.
The small frame in the Information pane comes with a bunch constrains that needs to be solved;
1) If the pane is not visible, rendering must not run.
2) If anf how should the height scale according to the width.
The first goal is to get the new view and fullscreen to work, after that I need to see if I can add support for additional plugin types (WMP, BassBox) then I will look at the embedding in the information pane.
At the moment I have only made tests with Sonique and Winamp plugins.
Only on a very basic level (outside of Neon), but it has been paused for a while to get everything else to work. I will restart it soon again.
Closed as implemented. Fine tuning remains, which is tracked in bug reports.
Here's another teaser:
The old (docked) implementation in HMM11 had no fixed ratio either - the visualization adapted itself to the new size (in real-time). Is this not (easily) possible with BassVis?
Would be good enough for me, would it be possible to make the height configurable through the options (in pixels / percentage or maybe just three pre-configured heights (small, medium, high))?
Yes, configuration from options should work well.

(Just an early draft)
It looks great so far. I'm looking forward to see it in action... ;-)
