  1. Adding a lot of new items to my display this year such as 4 RGB 15' arches and 4 of the the Boscoyo Studio Singing RGB bulb faces. Since the faces are relatively complex in nature, I built additional templates but want to copy, import or merge these templates into existing sequences for further sequencing. Is there a way to do this?
  2. Yes, but adding 12 groups x 4 props x 150 RGB lights/prop = 600RGB channels et al, tedious and prone to errors
  3. Learn ssomething every year, the HARD PAINFUL way, thanks
  4. Wow, each Boscoyo RGB face has 3 50 RGB strings grouped into 11 groups. So I will need to recreate these 44 groups, OUCH !!
  5. I just completed about 9 hours work on a pretty detailed sequence using 4 RGB arches and SS. This AM around 3, I realized that I hadn't told the SW where the controllers would be located . I will have 4 arches, end to end with the controller between arches 2&3 with lengthy cords feeding the 4 arches. To keep the cords short as possible (still over 12'), I need the "controller location" to be between 1&2 and then again 3&4. As I went though the configuration and layout just now, I don't see a means to locate the controller which correlates to where Pixel # 1 is on each arch. Hence, unless there is a means to do this, I have to go through the sequence and swap the start and end points of each of 2 arches, a lengthy arduous task. Is there a way to ID Pixel1 in the config? I now see that going forward I need to keep all of Arch 1, for example, in a straight row, so I can do a quick group modify John

    Perfect, that was it Brian !

    l a bit confused on why I see so many "unattached" vectors. Can't seem to find which morph they are associated with and makes cleaning up and tweaking the sequ3ence tough. I am certain it was something with the new visualization template mapping. Scrolling down doesn't show any morphs below what is seen. Ideas where to look? Your support is phenomenal !

    Played with this a bit and found that the Morph vector was not in the grid( actually off the grid and into the morphing area) and did not extend across the associated arches from the original visualization defaulted by SS. Thanks for the support !

    Thanks Brian. First one works as expected, but the second visualization, only the first 2 arches work. Looked at DMX mapping and looks OK, but don't understand why the first one works and the second does not Now I need to work on understanding the smoothing effects. I used this in a couple of places using the default layout from SS. It was pretty cool, but now when mapped properly, not cool. Guess I need to work on radii and start stop pixels Thanks !

    OK, did a visualization and imported it. Guess I really misjudged what the default CCR mode visualization was as my sequence does not fill the arches. SO, I get some more practice as I rewrite my sequence. With the new visualization, each morph or smooth effect fills just under 1/2 of the arch

    Universe 1thru 4, 1 for each string of 50 RGB/150 pixels

    Correct, So in the visualization that popped up, 4 arches, top row of arches is 1 & 2, second row of arches is 3 & 4. What I will have on my lawn is 4 arches, in a row, 1,2,3 &4 with the Pixcon controller between 2&3 using E1.31.192.168.0.50. From what I understand, this will require a separate ENet cable from my switch to go to the display along with 3 RS485 cables for the 3 networks, Regular and AuxA & AuxB, the latter controlling 16 CCB strings through 8 controllers

    S4 , not certain I am ready for another learning curve for the S5

    Thanks Brian From what you are saying, seems I have a lot of sequence editing to do to make this work. Nothing simple to change direction of 2 of the 4 arches?

    I used Superstar using the arch layour
  16. Sure would lie to add to my TSO sequences this year JR. Thanks ! jwblazek@aol.com
  17. Would love adding this to my TSO sequences JR. Thanks John

    Copying a color in Superstar

    I have a sequence with a lot of animations in various images and colors, not of the standard palette wheel.. I want to modify a couple of them, slightly, as I am going from 12 to 16 strings. How do I repeat a custom color if it is not showing in the custom color screen of the palette? In other words, I want to select the skin color I have in the animation and paste it in a few more cells to enlarge the image. Can't figure out how to do / duplicate that color

    Awesome, Thanks James! So simple

    Copying a color in Superstar

    I am using superstar, trying to figure how to use the same color that I had used previously. Already used SS to go from 12 to 16 but some images / animations need to be tweaked
  23. Been surfing the web and their are indications that there is a way to change 12 string sequences to 16 string sequences. This would save a tremendous amount of work, is there aa way to do this? I have a ton of sequences with 12 strings but want to increase the density of my tree to 16 this year
  24. Thanks for all the replies. This is awesome, first attempt took just about a minute.
  25. How do you hide the annotation of the props and fixtures? It clutters up the screen and in some cases, makes it difficult / impossible to see
