  1. Power supply? What kind of controllers are these? I had assumed AC controllers since he's controlling C9 strings, but those would not involve a power supply. Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  2. Other thought I had is a wiring issue. Are you feeding the controllers with one or two feeds, and if one, did you jumper both power and neutral between both sides of the board? Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  3. Very nice house - but the Steelers stuff in the family room has to go! Of course the sellers would be taking that stuff, so that's OK. And what you get for the price there compared to here makes me envious. But I like here....
  4. Damn, you've got an area about half the size of a football field to play with. Lots of stuff you can on the house too. Can I assume that in that area, the trees will be bare by the time you start a Christmas show? Otherwise the trees could block some of the view. Around here most of the trees have plenty of leaves all year long. Happy for ya.
  5. Most of us are in the heart of sequencing, so I am going to bring this up again. Rather than retype the novel I did a year ago, you are invited to read (or re-read) at least the first post in this post:
  6. The one I linked was last October, but I have said similar many times both before and after. Can't stress the importance of backing up enough. Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  7. If you are using SuperStar, unless you need to edit in SE, output as intensity files. Of course your PE files are already as intensity files. Then it does not matter how large the intensity files get because the show player does not need to load them into memory. In my case all of my .lms files are less than 1K in size because all the real data is in the intensity files. I sequence everything in SuperStar and export as intensity files.
  8. Yes, you can use them any way you want. One major thing to keep in mind is cable length between the controller and the first pixel. Depends on the pixel technology, but the limit can be as little as five to ten feet. Most can go longer, and there are several things you can do to extend that distance. I would suggest that you test the distance that you plan on doing now rather than setting up in November and finding it it does not work right. Feel free to ask questions if this does not make sense.

  9. It is getting a bit late in the year to start working on a major show change, but DO plan on it for next year. Behind my pixel tree, my six 50 CCP arches are the next biggest attraction in my show (and essentially everything in my show is RGB).
  10. Brian, The Layer feature works great! Thanks! What does the smooth ramps feature do? I made a several second ramp from 0 to 100% white and played it back with both the smooth ramps turned on and off. Not really seeing any difference.
  11. I have now downloaded the beta. Have only had a few minutes to play with it, but expect to spend a while this evening with it. Looking forward to using layers. Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  12. In case you missed it, back up your sequences. Keep a backup off site somewhere - either on a physical device somewhere else (I keep a backup hard drive at my office), or on the cloud (I use Google Drive). Also make certain that your filenames have something identifies revision date so you can tell which is the latest version. For example, a file I was working on yesterday is named "Opening 2017-06-20b.sup". Leaves no doubt what song it is, and when it was revised.

  13. I also have Superstar running. You can not enter a folder name in the line at the bottom to give a clipboard file a name. In the list of saved clip files at the top, it will not display a folder even if you did create one using Windows Explorer. This is version 4.3.18 (latest version).
  14. Yes, I understand that, but there is no ability to add folders there - Unless I'm being blind today.
  15. Sorry, I misread your original message as they did not work at all - hence the lack of power assumption. I agree with Matt. Remember that a lot of LED strings will look almost full on at a very low intensity. Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  16. First guess is that there is no power to the channel 1 - 8 side of the controller. I assume these are AC controllers. Is the controller set up for single or dual AC input? If two, do you have both power plugs plugged in? With the controller unplugged, check both fuses.
  17. Lee, What version are you running, and how were you seeing the ability to add folders in the Superstar clipboard? I just tried it with 4.3.18 (latest version), and can't find it. I agree it would be nice.
  18. Having spent a good part of today listening to 8 second segments of songs over, and over, and over, I can assure you the half and quarter speed are wonderful. However I do all my sequencing in SuperStar (where there are half and quarter speed playback options), so I can't help you out with PE.

  19. $30 for free refills all season is a heck of a deal at the price they change for a single drink! Can I assume you were intending to post or link the video? It's not there.
  20. Check your E-Mail.
  21. That should be easy enough. You said 16 string with the first string on the right and pixels bottom to top. I could whip that up in a couple minutes. What are the desired unit IDs and network (if it's LOR)? Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  22. Is this a flat tree or a 180 or 360 degree tree?
  23. Yea, I saw this. I don't run off of a director, so that might be a difference. The most important consideration is to make absolutely certain that the static lights are on at the very beginning and the last until the absolute end of the sequence. However it sounds like you only have this issue when using a director. Can't help you much there. Also make sure you DON'T have the checkbox for "Turn the lights off at the end of the sequence". Again, not sure how that works on a director.
  24. Or a Bang?
  25. That's actually a bad thing. If the fuses had blown fast enough, they MAY have protected the board (large emphasis on MAY). That the fuses did not blow most likely means that something on the board burned up before the fuses could blow. Sorry.
