Interesting uses for Video FX! I'll start

Image

In addition to my usual video FX (see this screenshot http://i.imgur.com/W35fs.jpg for more info), this Video FX Set has all of my bags.
And by all of my bags, I mean all of my bags.
And they are all fully interactive!

The idea here is that I can switch to this set on demand, like when I want to see everyone's bags. And then I can switch back to my normal fx. This is really, really cool.

There's tons of other things we can do, like...
* Always show the tank's Action Bars, regardless of what window we're in
* Directly use the healer window's Vuhdo, Grid, Healbot, or other unit frames. fully interactive, scalable, etc!

I'll post more screenshots. Hoping some of you would like to join in, let's share some awesome ideas!

Re: Interesting uses for Video Feeds! I'll start

Your bags need cleaning up Lax! Excellent use of video feeds. I'm going to steal it.

Here's mine (still a work in progress):

1. Full screen feeds of my slaves - fully mouse-interactive.
2. Feeds of my slaves actions bars (for tracking cooldowns, some buffing, etc.) - also fully mouse-interactive! This area also has slave cast bars, breath meter and pet bars when they are in use.
3. Group window using video feeds, even though I am in a raid and the normal group window would disappear.
4. Part of slave target windows, using scaled down video feeds, for monitoring combo points on target (very important for bard healing).

And some click bars...

5. Role bars (thanks Berserker - awesome idea) - left column is for main spam mode, right is for finishers.
6. Pet role bars - so I can easily call/dismiss or change pet stances without tying up keyboard buttons
7. One click /partyleave for the whole party using a click bar and in-game macros.

We need more examples of video feeds! There must be some great ideas out there just waiting to be revealed to the community.

EDIT: for the scroll-impaired... description moved above the picture ;)

My bags definitely need cleaning up. I have everything in there ;) Your setup looks sweet, thank you for sharing it!

Posting some more ideas as I log in and play with things.

Re: Interesting uses for Video Feeds! I'll start

So this morning I realized I forgot to save my "unified login screen" video feed set and made a new one. It's awesome at the login screen, but then I laughed once I got to the character select screen.

I present... the Unified Crotch Screen. Or, "Unified Login Screen is pants":

Currency tab:

These are of course the same video feeds in these 3, and since they are all fully interactive I can click on whichever character/rep/currency tab in each guy

A couple more sets of feeds I use when questing.

1. Feeds of the quest dialog. Triggered when broadcasting is on, interactive. Allow me to ensure I have interacted with the quest giver properly on on characters.
2. Video feeds of my slave's quest trackers (without addons!). These are triggered by the little click bar "Q" just below my mini map.
