  1. Magic dance from labyrinth good idea.
  2. You guys are awesome - Thanks to you all for your service, thanks for coming home. And thank you Grandpa who was in WW2 and to my Uncle who served in Vietnam, both returned.
  3. I feel your pain. Everyone learns differently at different speeds. I took to SE and SS like fish to water but struggled with visualizer for a while! exactly what problems are you having? Don and MrP gave a great link to follow but I prefer using this: http://www.lightorama.com/help/tutorial.htm. this link will give you step by step instructions how to create your first vis and run a simulation. It also includes a one time step that some, not all (mine did) computers need. If your more visual learner than maybe the link Mr P gave is more suited. Once you have followed both links and are still having problems, again, what problems are you having?
  4. If I'm reading everything right, yes there is a way to do this but not quite as described. Your projector will remain on the entire show but when not playing video it will be black. The portions or video you want to display will be added as media to a regular sequence file They will come on when you show calls for them or when triggered by input pup, just as if triggering a sequence but i know of no projector that remember it's settings when power is disconnected and reconnected from the power plug I run ghost videos between song at Halloween. If this is what your after, be happy to explain more in detail.
  5. Yes there will be!! im going to try something this year and if it turns out I'll post pics. Costco sells them sometime too. If he had Obama care he'd be dead---er. 😂
  6. 😂😂😂had to laugh when I read the title.
  7. Happy bday Dennis. I'll turn 50 this year, so far I'm the youngest of the oldsters. Not sure how to feel about that. 🤔
  8. worked for me. I put them in straight line. Shouldn't matter though. I was able to change the size of them and it worked in simulation. I suggest delete the fixture, back all the way out of LOR and try again.
  9. Glad I could help. I have a few 30/30 props so I was a little familiar. Just remember you can have partial "sections", you don't have to cut at the factory splice but, the partial section must have a buck converter.
  10. I don't think your problem is the direction of the data, well is could be but,,,,,,, you said 60/60 2811? I believe you have a buck converter at least every meter on that strip. I believe you do not have buck converter in the "group" you are supplying power to. (even supplying power to the other end wont work) You took a full 60/60 strip and cut at pix 170? and now the rest of strip doesn't work? THEN>>>> count up pixels to where you see a factory splice where 12v, neg, & data are soldered but there is a black box over the 5v? If so then that is where you need to cut and attach your connection. THIS ONLY MY GUESS FOR I CAN NOT VERIFY WHAT IS GOING ON OVER THERE!! DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. heres a vid that explains it better
  11. hey jack I am not the one to respond to PE questions , I don't know . To insert RGB channels in SE, go to the last channel at the bottom>right click>insert RGB channels>insert multiple RGB channels below>select "8">OK You would then right click each RGB channel and address and rename them. Your in good hands with Jim, just thought I would throw that out there.
  12. #1-2 - no. The 50w cf and uv floods used 5 channels (3=RGB and 4 & 5 are for custom strobing effects) (how long on, how long off,,,). The 10w floods just use 3 channels (or one RGB channel) per flood and don't have a built in strobe effect. So 24 channels for 8 10w floods. #3 - sure, that one way people do it #4 not sure what you mean - put it under whatever works for you #5 there are several video, heres one from JStorms that might help
  13. Hey Terpsmurf!! long time no see.....As DibbleJR said, ANY song goes for Halloween. I would definitely put it in your Halloween show if you like it, for you did a fantastic job with those mouth movements. Very impressive.
  14. I believe ducks was referring him to use his current a/c lights with a regular controller and OP is wanting dumb RGB, not pixels.
