  1. Do the Intensity Data files created in Superstar work in S5 Beta. Have tried them but could not get them to work.
  2. OK Folks. This is definitely in my Top 5 Computer Things Ever! I was discussing the fact that you could not have S4 and S5 installed on the same machine with my IT Guru Son-in-Law. He quite flippantly said "Why don't you just run it on a virtual machine?" Being only familiar with the term and concept, we discussed it I gave it a shot! IT WORKED! I used Oracle's VM VirtualBox https://www.virtualbox.org/ this extension pack http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.1.24/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-5.1.24-117012.vbox-extpack and followed this tutorial for installation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XFa_2cKzuk Then I downloaded S4 and S5, Installed S4, transferred my existing files to the VM, got S4 working, and then installed the S5 Beta. As far as I can tell, it all works great. There will no doubt be some growing pains with this and I probably won't be able to help anyone with this, but I'm sure we have some members who think this is child's play and can really provide some insight. There is no warranty here! Try at your own risk. But quite frankly, I don't see any risk at all. Good luck and post your experiences Tony
  3. I am trying the new feature to import SS effects as i read on another thread. I do the following SS is closed (tried it open also) I open SE and an existing sequence, select a row, right click and "Insert superstar effects" but all i get is a message saying "No response received from superstar", nothing else happens Windows 10 pc running S5.0.0
  4. Not enough thank you's floating around these days. Wanted to say thank you to Jim. I was having issues exporting sup files to SE with intensity data. Couldn't figure out why it was so difficult and why the channels were not correct on my tree vis. I used the error box that popped up in SE to "use PE or SS to change channel settings". Changed in PE but that didn't work. Couldn't figure out how to get channels 1-16 without the 0A..... channels. Just 1-16. Jim took a look and corrected the tree. strands and now everything looks great. At the same time I was having major issues with SE just not working. After many hours figured out somehow all of my audio devices got deactivated in my laptop. Between the LOR HD finally got that straightened out. Honorable mention to the LOR HD team - responded to my question early this morning - I expected with the S5 rollout I would be waiting longer. Honorable mention to Mr. P as well, he took time to respond to my question as well Thank you everyone JR

  6. Greetings all While my first exposure to S5 at Christmas Expo was very encouraging, one unfortunate omission is the lack of clipboard support in S5. There are "favorites" for motion effects, but so far, no support for what were sequence editor clipboards. Using clipboards is an enormous time saving feature for me and I hope that others will agree and influence the developers to add that feature to S5. Help me be "the squeaky wheel" Keep up the great work guys Tony
  7. Small, yard. < 20' from road to (1 story ) house (and Rose bushes to dodge) . I wanted a 'round' tree look when it was static (no LOR then), . The rear half would have gained me nothing from the street and allowed me to better fit a taller tree in the available yard depth. BTW The tree is just 9 strings (4 now have a second string of WW along with the colored ones) of LEDs,, no animated pixels. That may make choice difference.to you. I'm a tech, not an artist :D, like many of you.
  8. Agreed! I use clipboard flipper almost every day. Saves me hours.
  9. I agree, Bob's tools rely heavily on clipboards and I cant imagine sequencing without them.
  10. Haven't tested it yet but am told that the falcon player has to be in bridge mode for LOR to talk to it. Hope that helps.
  11. Matt, If this has been asked before my apologies, a quick forum search turned up nothing. I know S5 is currently in work, so maybe this could be put on a wish list. When using the Picture effect or really any effect would it be possible to rotate the effect? Ideally if it could be rotated at 5 points, Center and all 4 corners it would add an interesting effect. I am not even sure this is possible. For Example, in the picture below, I would like to be able to spin the picture at it's center - left or right up to 360 degrees at a speed ranging from slow to fast. Again ideally if the picture had 5 points in which to rotate all the better. In the picture below this is only 1 prop, I also have view setup that includes all my smart rgb props and being able to rotate an effect on a big scale would be very cool. The more I use PE, the easier it has become and offer this as a suggestion to add to the overall effects toolbox. Alan...
