Must agree with most things Morten said...
I also went through Tourweaver (and I remember Morten in Tourweaver forums
D) I have left it, in spite of a lot of money I have paid for TW
it was very frustrating when U have to pay a lot but poor support is there and/or the soft is too buggy. At that time I could see Immervision VT and I could not believe what could be done. I finally found easypano sw very limiting to me and although it was too much for me (I am not programmer
), I patiently learned to use Immervision PurePLayer, to work with xml... I have spent tens and hundreds of hours on forum. But there was the same problem too - poor support... and it was still Java. Than I found FPP and yes, I had to start to understand new player again
I wonder, how much players I will need to learn to work with?
We are photographers and only few of us are the programmers as well. It is hard for most of us to understand the code, and FFC was and still is big relieve .. Trausti has spend so much time on FPP and FFC forums like nobody. He was the real support although he is not a programmer too, but he used his own money to hire one and help this community by releasing a GUI.
Now, I am sure that after few years of hard work, he needs some time for himself + I feel thay are working on some surprise - it is no secret, that they had an idea to build completely new player. I think that the bugs in FFC are the problem of limiting FPP engine too... According to my opinion, it is no use to put so much time to "never-ending repairing of old house", rather to build new one... I think, that last news from Trausti (new Flash 11 engine) are the great news...
