  1. After further trouble shooting I have discovered what is causing the problem. In one of my strings in the same universe I start with a channel that causes the string to go to the next universe within that string. Apparently Visualizer will not allow this. Is this a bug that will be fixed in the future or is this a limitation of Vissualizer. I have many props/strings that will have this issue so this may be a show stopper for me.
  2. I am using Version 4.0.34 bata and I am not sure if this is a bug or something I am doing wrong. It has been a while since I tried to use Visualizer but with S4 I thought I would give it a try to see if the upgrade would be worh purchasing this year. I started by putting in a 13 pixel String that started with Universe 5 pixel 1 then I added a second string with 6 pixels starting at Universe 5 pixel 14 when I click on Simulation Mode I get an error window Saying DMX Pixel Universe on Universe 5 when assembled has duplicate pixels.... it says that my first string starts on Pixel 1 and my second should start at pixel 15 or higher. Why have I lost a pixel from the first string ending in 13 and the next one that needs to start at 15?
  3. It appears that it was a registery issue. I started having other problems but after doing a registery clean (200+ errors found) everything is working correctly again. Thanks for the suggestions.
  4. Tried both the Beat and VU Wizards and it locked up on both of them.
  5. Edit/Use Internal Media was checked. I tried it both checked and unchecked and I tried toggling it and I still get the same results.
  6. When I load my sequences that I used this last season (using v3.12.0) they load fine but any attempt to run the sequence or show the Wave form locks up the Sequence editor. I have reboted the computer several times and even went back to v3.11.2 and I still get the same results. Anyone have any ideas on what is causing this? I hvent changed any thing since I developed the last sequence just after v3.12.0 was issued.
  7. I had my set to load before they are needed and they flashed so I changed them to Load as needed and now they don't flash. Very strange.
  8. Thanks, I did not realize that you needed the 4GB patch on the LORmonitor.exe. Once I did that the sequences loaded but now my RGB lights flicker noticably when they should be on steady. Any Idea what is causing that?
  9. I attempted to run my show for the first time last night and had several problems. When I build the show with the "sequences are loaded when they are needed" option two of my larger sequences do not play. When I look at the status window the errors are "cannot load compressed sequence... cannot allocate memory for event table" followed by second attempt to load the file then "DMX Listener error 3: Comm winsock error /10054 The connection is reset by remote side". It attempts to load the file 3 times over 2 mins then moves on to the next song. If I attempt to load the show with the "Sequences are loaded before they are played" option it is unable to load 3 of my songs (one more than the other option handled) with the same "Cannot allocate memory for the event table". The .lcs filed for the two songs in my show that never load are 347 MB and 292 MB and the one that will not load when the load before playing option is selected is 170 MB. I have 64 channels of LOR and 2010 DMX channels on 15 Universes and I know others have larger setups. Does anyone have any ideas other than waiting for LOR 4 to be released?
  10. I program my sequences on my Desk top running Windows 7 and view the entire setup using the animation program. My Daughter has asked me to come to here school tomorrow and show here students what it takes to program the lights. When I moved my sequence, music and background to my laptop (Windows 8) the animation is not responding properly fixtures are comming on and staying on. Anyone have this problem? Is there a fix?
  11. This morning I Put the suspect song at the first of the show and with no other changes it has played through twice with no errors. Not sure why the location in the show would make any difference but it has.
  12. Yes I opened and saved the sequence on the show computer prior to running it. Just for good measure I did it again and and got the same results. Thanks for the idea hopefully someone has something else to try.
  13. I noticed that one of the songs in my show was not playing and when I looked at the status log everytime that sequence came up there was an error "Cannot allocate new play event node". The sequence is quite large (500 Megs) is that too much for the software to run or is there some other error? Anyone else having this issue?
  14. I noticed that I never seemed to catch one of the songs in my show when it was running and I checked the Status log and found that everytime the sequence was scheduled to run it gave an error "Cannot allocate new play event node". This file is quite large (over 500 Meg) and I dont know if that is the problem or something else. Has any one had this problem? Is there any fix or is my sequence just too large for the program?
  15. The song keeps playing but the animation first starts skipping data then eventually it just stops and the music continues on. After that I am unable to save the sequence.
  16. I followed the instructions above and got the succeeded message. However, after opening LOR sequence editor and the file I ran it and viewed the animation. After that I attempted to save the file and got the same error. I also noted that the file is overloading animation.
  17. Report Number: VB02 Module:Sequence Editor Software Version: 3.10 OS Version: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Description:when attempting to save a large file (509 MB) for the second time I got an error Saying Error Saving File... do you want to try to save to another file name? Detail: Invalid procedure call or argument. When I click on the yes it opens a window to enter the new file name, after entering a new name then click on save nothing happens. If I select one of the file names listed (other than the files present name) it starts to save the file to that name but eventually I got the same error as above. Repeatability: Have not been able to reproduce the problem as yet.
  18. I was running LOR 3.9. When i looked at the properties on the directory it was somhow marked as hidden. Once I clicked on that the install worked. Thanks
  19. Report Number: VB01 Module: Loader Software Version: 3.10 OS Version: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Description:after running LOR-3.10.0-Beta.exe and the opening Sequence editor on the last step (Finish) I git the following error LOR Post: Error: Path/File access error on Step: Install Demos. If I click ok and attempt to load Sequence Editor I get the error Light-O-Rama is not correctly installed. Repeatability: When you try to re do the install and select repair or modify I get the same error.
  20. I developed a pixel (RGB) tree, consisting of 8 strings of 108 pixels each, in Visualizer it is made up of 16 props labeled Tree 1-1B, Tree 1-1T,... Tree 1-8B, Tree 1-8T. The DMX addresses start with the bottom of string Tree 1-1B and go to the top of that string and then over to string two from bottom to top in the same manor all the way through string 8. The T and B in the names are for the top and bottom of the Strings due to the limitation of 64 fixtures for each prop in Visualizer. When I import this to Super Star It makes it 8 ribbons but treats the Tree 1-1B and Tree 1-2B props as ribbon 1 and Tree 1-3B and Tree 1-4B props as string 2 and so forth. How can I get it to make the top and Bottom as of each string as the ribbon? I am running LOR version 3.9.
  21. No I am using 50 pixel RGB light strings (http://www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/701799/209889132-441831480/4096-gray-scale-12mmled-pixel-module-3001IC-DC5V-input-IP68-50pcs-a-string.html) controlled via 3 iDMX units.
  22. You are correct I only need 3 iDMX units the 4th was for the star on the tree. But my problem was not in setting them up in the sequencer I did that with no problems. It is trying to make a mega tree in Visualizer where I am having the problem. When setting up the tree and running the Channel wizard it asks for the Base Unit ID for the first string on the tree then the second and so on if I use the same Base Unit ID I will get the error message saying the second unit needs to start at 51 not 1 and I can not find anyway to change the starting pixel.
  23. My sequence for next year includes a tree with 8 strings of 50 RGB individually addressable lights. I have set them up as LOR iDMX 05 regular ch 1 thru 50, 51 thru 100, 101 thru 151, iDMX 06 regular ch 1 thru 50 etc. I have tried every possible combination to make a mega tree using this setup in visualizer with no luck. When I say that the tree is made up of 50 pixel CCR's and run the Channel wizard and set the fixtures to the same channel I get an error saying that "Fixture Tree 2 - CCR 2 is not contiguous. Next pixel is 1 but should be 51 . I can find no way to change the starting pixel to 51. Any Ideas?
