  1. I saw a few old posts on this topic back in 2012, but I didn't think resurrecting a zombie thread was appropriate... I was wondering if there was a way to a hierarchy to the layers of effects. It would be VERY handy in animations to have one layer completely over power a lower layer (think of the new years eve ball sliding down a pole, where the pole is one image, and the ball is another). Ideally, i'd like to declare the ball (in this example) as being on top, and completely overwrite whatever color is being shown on a pixel that represents the pole, as that ball slides down. I could do it by creating a few dozens static images of the ball in varying levels of descent; or if I could prioritize the layers (layer hierarchy) I could simply put the ball over top of the pole, and motion the ball image downward. Was curious if this feature ever made it forward into S4. Ryan
  2. I think I took one step forward, and one step back. I'm able to import the visualization without issues, but my pixels aren't lining up (can't think of a better way to describe it). The vertical columns line up perfectly, but the horizontal appears to be every other upside-down. I've linked images in the sentence above to illustrate the issue. Thank you again for your help.
  3. Awesome! Thank you for the reply. Let me know if you need any of my files to replicate the issue.
  4. I've built a 25Hx24W vertically snaked CCP matrix (before I realized SS4 doesn't like that). I've tried several ways of getting SS4 to accept the layout of the matrix (Controller 1 Pixel 1 is Top Left), but nothing I do seems to be a workaround for SS4 not liking vertically snaked Consecutive Pixel Runs. Alright, no big deal, we are talking about a square here, so I tipped it over on its side. So now I have a 24Hx25W horizontally snaked CCP matrix. SS4 does not complain when importing the visualization. Hooray, kinda. When I draw pixels individually (in Scene Mode), I can address all 600 pixels with no issues (see image1). When I attempt to use Smooth Effects Mode, Image Mode, or Text Mode, only half of the Matrix appears to work (image 4). The clipping box (yellow outline) only allows me to work with the bottom half of the matrix (image 2). Manually clipping ([Foul Language Used] Left click and drag the whole matrix) doesn't work, it changes the box outline to red (image 3). So...I have two questions. 1) Is there a way to use SS4 with a matrix that has consecutive pixels in vertically snaked runs (see image 5)? Even if I have to draw this out manually in Visualizer (not use the Matrix Wizard) I'd prefer my matrix to be vertically aligned. 2) If I can't have #1, I'll need to understand why clipping is only allowing me to see half of the matrix for some effects, and the whole thing for others. Images available here. Thank you, Ryan P
