  1. Oh - but the show does not play properly - several sequences skipped - and Verifyer not reporting any errors
  2. Verifier is reporting 18 "application not found" eros - I can't play my show tonight. I've completely removed and replaced the LOR software, both 5.20 and 5.22 - same result. I've rebuilt the show - same result. And this is on several computers.Pic attached - please help right away - I've got a huge show and can't play it!Bob
  3. Thanks Matt and Mr. P - and that's how I realized my error. I prefer to do the design of a prop totally in the S5 definition. Bob
  4. yes, that was it - 144 total nodes, 3 folds did the trick! Thanks - Bob
  5. I think I may have found it - in S5, they use "folds" as a term to mean a string folds over into the other direction - but same string.
  6. Hi Mr. P - using a HolidayCoro AlphaPix 16 controller. Same port for entire string series because 30 x 4 = 120 total RGB nodes so no need for different ports. Bob
  7. I have a post made up of 4 vertical rows of 30 RGB nodes on each row - starting position is bottom left. When I use the "bars" effect with highlighting, I expect to see a moving row of 4 white lights - all moving down the post together (see attached mp4). Instead, on the real prop itself, I get first row white highlight moving down, second one moving up, third moving down and fourth one moving up. I've attached the appropriate files - what am I doing wrong? 2018-11-18_7-14-50.mp4
  8. Hi Jim - thanks for helping me to solve this. I used Verifier to find the problems. Apparently, for these sequences, it could not find the media files and generated an error to that effect. I'm not sure how that came to be but restored the linkages. I develop on 2 different machines, then play on a laptop. I think that even though I am careful to use the same directories on each machine that somehow these links were messed up. Learning: always use Verifier before you are doing your final version of your show! Thanks again! Bob
  9. On Halloween, I was very surprised that my show did not play the last 5 sequences in its list of 21 total sequences. It went back to musical sequence 1 after reaching sequence 16. I have checked all the files and they are not corrupt. I tried a test show with just one sequence (Thriller) and in show mode, it just wouldn't play - on any PC. The song plays fine inside S5 sequencer.The media file I am using is an MP4, 456,196 KB, 7:34 duration. It plays under any video player so I know it's not corrupt. When I save this video from Adobe Premiere Pro CC as an MP3 (audio only) and created the playback files, it played ok as a one-sequence show. I have resaved the loredit files for the sequences that won't play in Show, as well as re-created the playback files and compressed them.Can you think of what the problem might be? MediaInfo reports this, typical for all of my files: General Complete name : C:\Holidays\Sequences\Halloween\2018\Sequences\2018 BH 18 Wicked Old Witch.mp4 Format : MPEG-4 Format profile : Base Media Codec ID : isom (isom/iso2/avc1/mp41) File size : 204 MiB Duration : 3 min Overall bit rate mode : Variable Overall bit rate : 8 282 kb/s Writing application : Lavf56.30.100 Video ID : 1 Format : AVC Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec Format profile : High@L4 Format settings, CABAC : No Format settings, ReFrames : 1 frame Format settings, GOP : M=1, N=12 Codec ID : avc1 Codec ID/Info : Advanced Video Coding Duration : 3 min Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 8 125 kb/s Maximum bit rate : 16.0 Mb/s Width : 1 920 pixels Height : 1 080 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate mode : Constant Frame rate : 29.970 (30000/1001) FPS Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Progressive Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.131 Stream size : 200 MiB (98%) Audio ID : 2 Format : AAC Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec Format profile : LC Codec ID : 40 Duration : 3 min Duration_LastFrame : -20 ms Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 152 kb/s Maximum bit rate : 192 kb/s Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 44.1 kHz Frame rate : 43.066 FPS (1024 spf) Compression mode : Lossy Stream size : 3.74 MiB (2%) Language : English Default : Yes Alternate group : 1
  10. Then I'll wait till the "final days" before creating the show because I always make last-minute changes, etc. Thanks for posting! Bob
  11. Thanks - they are locking down the final S5 release version at the moment and perhaps this isn't a bug at all - don't know yet - Bob
  12. 'nuther question - I assume (usually gets me in trouble) that if you make any change at all to a sequence in S5 Sequencer, that you then need to go back and re-create updated play files - right?
  13. Just as a follow-on note to close this out, I have now tested the compress-to-create-play-files logic and it worked - absolutely no wait time between songs - yay!
