  1. Thing to note: 1. Motion effects require a PRO license! 2. To make them work, you will have to split your network into regular high powered (8 & 16 channel) controllers, and Enhanced RGB controllers. So you will need to run separate network cable for each network, and of course a controller (computer or G3-MP3 player) that can run the 2 networks. I have all that, but I couldn't get it to work in an hour or two. So I am waiting until I take my display down, so I can try each controller out separately in the warmth of my home. Hope that helps.
  2. At the time I wrote this I was using CMB-24D controller for dumb ribbon lights, but also for LOR1600W units, they don't have wizards. Basically the one year I bought all the smart RGB bulbs and pixels, I got so frustrated with the Visualizer that I didn't bother with it, I setup the fixtures in my office and watched it live. This year I have everything at my brothers house, so I don't have that option. So I was trying to fix the visualizer file that I had, but it was such a mess I decided to start over again. I was going to create each RGB bulb / pixel independently because I use them in props, not in lines and I want to put these bulbs as part of this prop, and those bulbs as part of a different prop. But with over 800 channels the heck with that if I have to assign each channel from scratch. I find it hard to believe that more people don't do all their planning (including assigning channels) in the visualizer, the way they told me to do it makes not sense to me. Why design the visual half in the visualizer and the channel half in the sequencer? Isn't it easier to do it all in one place? Why type the name in the visualizer and then again in the sequencer? What happens when you make spelling mistakes so the two don't match? I don't get it. It sounds like unnecessary work to me.
  3. I am using version 4.0.38 and it I find I have to do everything, even the obvious! I make an RGB channel, and I have to enter everything for the 3 channels. I enter controller type as Light-O-Rama, the unit #, and the first channel number, and then I have to do it all over again for the next 2 channels. 99% of the time you know it is going to be the same controller type! You know it is going to be the same unit #! You know it is going to be the next channel number. Why do I have to enter it every single time? For that matter, why can't the Channel Settings dialogue box default to bring up (instead of being empty) the last controller type used, the last unit # used, and the last channel number+1? I think I asked something like this before and I was told that you usually assign the channel numbers in the Sequence Editor and then import them to the Visualizer. Well I don't, and I am probably not the only one, am I? Why can't you make the software do what us users want, not just the way you want? Especially for something this simple and easy?
  4. Here is the link to my singing pumpkin clips. Then I saw Creative Lighting Displays and was blown away. My initial singing pumpkin was just hung by string, but then I put holes into corrugated plastic and pushed the bulbs through. https://www.youtube.com/user/trbeier
  5. Yep, definitely some good stuff here! You manage to pick up some of the subtle little beats and find just the right effect for them. Well Done! :-)
  6. I use Adobe Premiere Elements. :-)
  7. Nice show! I am not sure the relevance to Christmas? It would probably be more appropriate for Halloween, but in any case, good show! :-)
  8. Thanks to both of you for replying! :-) Well, I guess I am a little guilty of not commenting myself. I was just about to comment that there wasn't even a LIKE button on this site, but then I just found it on the far right of the screen. I may not be commenting much, but I think I am Subscribed to a dozen or more YouTube channels of people who post here. The swaying arms and legs were designed to dance to the "Twinkle Twinkle" of "Somebody That I Used To Know". I just thought that it also sounded kinda like the bones of a skeleton. It was good I could include it in some of the other shows as well. :-) Last year I started with only a 16 channel controller that I ordered near the beginning of October, and I hand sequenced 2 songs with lip-syncing from scratch for Halloween! Boy that was a lot of work, and I can't believe I did it in time, but I was happy with the results. I ended up cheating when I saw Creative Lighting Displays "Thriller" and purchased the sequence, but still had to adapt it to my little tiny 16 channel display. This year I have Cosmic Color Bulbs, Pixels, and a Ribbon as well as 32 channels and some dumb ribbon lights. We are technically not allowed to put anything on the lawn in our building complex, that is why everything is in the windows. Anyway, thanks again for replying, and I am glad you liked the show! :-) -Tony.
