  1. Surprised no ones making comments from the expo....Curious as to what it's going to do (besides merging SE/VI/PE)....
  2. Here are the first couple I've encountered: After successfully installing the software, when I went into Sequencer, it told me that I would need up assign a visualization file for the first pre5 sequence (I'm running 4.3.14). I selected the second option (the middle one) but it never let me click OK or anything and the app just froze and I had to kill the app.
  3. List of issues with S5 beta

    I tried that twice and could never get past the same prompt when trying to open a sequence built under 4.x. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. canceling from an installation - stuck

    You have to go into Task Manager and kill it in there.
  5. No word on S5 yet??

    One thing that I know I would have like to have seen was more pre-built effects available in Sequencer. I also would have loved to be able to do basic tasks, like simply setup an arch with a single chase to start at second 1 and slowly go across the arch and auto calculate to end at second 8 without have to manually set the timings myself. Also, and maybe it's just me, but when starting a new sequence, Sequencer seems to want to use the models I created in PE, it would have been great if it would have accepted all of the visualizations I built in Visualizer as well. This is hour 6 of the beta, let's see where it goes from here, but if these features are the only ones available, I'll see no reason to upgrade for me.

    This is a beta, let's hope they add more functionality before it goes into production. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. No word on S5 yet??

    Wow, thats exactly what I was thinking, that they're now basically mimicking the xlights way of creating sequences!! I was hoping for new models and easier way to control rgb's but I don't see it anywhere. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. No word on S5 yet??

    Agreed. Maybe I'm missing something, but it just looks like they took PE and threw it into SE (or is it the other way around) and moved the models into a floating window. I didn't see anything 'new' in Superstar.
  9. List of issues with S5 beta

    Win7 and I've never had it before with any of my updates (on multiple computers as well). This is the first time it's happened to me.
  10. No word on S5 yet??

    Thanks, I started a new thread there
  11. List of issues with S5 beta

    Second issue: After rebooting my machine, and trying to go into Sequencer, I'm getting a prompt "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable" with the ability to select a path. No matter what I click, OK or Cancel, I get 'Error 1706: No valid source could be found for product Light-O-Rama. The Windows Installer cannot continue' and I have to click OK. When I click OK, I have the LOR S5 Sequencer page and it's hanging at 'Retrieving license'. One more thing, no matter what I click here, it keeps putting me into a loop and restarting this bug over and over .

    Too bad it won't let me upload a picture...says I can only upload files 20K in size
  13. No word on S5 yet??

    Hey Admins, where do we report bugs?? I've hit 2 already and just installed it: Here's 1 (and this was after a reboot)
  14. No word on S5 yet??

    I just couldn't get the time due to prior commitments, but hopefully for those of us left behind, we'll hear something soon...
  15. File size...

    As my display continues to grow I'm adding more and more RGB into it. I've noticed the size of my LMS files, even when using Superstar and Pixel Editor, growing to almost a Gig. I'm running everything over DMX instead of the LOR protocol, but as the LMS gets larger, should I be concerned about a max file size? Is there a file size where I would start to see lags in the show player? I have a pretty hefty PC running everything, have an S4 Pro license, and all of the wiring from the PC to the controllers is cat5e but just checking before I start expanding my display more. BTW, will S5 help with file size??? Any hint?
  16. File size...

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately most of my sequencing has been done in SE because I found it easier to program in Xlights then import them into the LMS (xlights seemed to give me easier controls over the RGB timings for the arches). This year, I completely got rid of all of my a/c controllers and moved exclusively to RGB and not sure how to get the same functionality through PE/SS as Xlights without having to import the huge files into SE as LMS.
  17. LOR S4 with DMX

    When it comes to arches, and I asked this question before last season, the best way I could do it was to do the arches in xlights then import them into lor. They worked beautifully every time and the timings would be perfect for the chases. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Pixel Tree...Strips or Nodes?

    I live on a corner lot so the 360 looks awesome driving from any area around my house,but for a non-corner lot, unless you want to watch it from your house, a 180 should be fine. Remember the recommendation is 1"spacing for every 10' from the street. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Pixel Tree...Strips or Nodes?

    I made mine from scratch by buying all of the components and parts separately from different vendors and putting them together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Pixel Tree...Strips or Nodes?

    I had that same question almost a year ago and will tell you what I was told back then. It depends on what you like. I went with a 360 degree tree with 50 bullets per string and it looked incredible. I think the ribbons look better on a 180 and for animations but for a "traditional" looking tree, I think the bullets look awesome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Switching to Pixels this year

    Oh but if you do use cat5e cable make sure it's pure copper stranded. anything else will give you problems over distance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I got close to 60' on a bunch of my runs using cat 5e. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Do an arch chase sequence in PE?

    I actually asked the same question back in October. I had 8 arches that I wanted looking perfect that would do a chase and after spending countless hours trying to figure out the timing in PE,I just decided to model the arches in xlights then import the sequences right into se and it worked perfectly every time and my arches were awesome. It was really easy to do and repeatable for each of my 25 different sequences. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Here was my 360 tree with Brian's globe using 2 1/2" spacing. Each string was 50 bullet pixels held with Strips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Taking Down

    Do bullet strips fit inside of these and if so how many strips per unit? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
