  1. OK I worked it out... The mechanism is misleading. press R, right click. select "Insert toolbar effect at max intensity". Max is defined as the value in the toolbar. I get why you did it this way but "max" is 255. The definition of max is what ever is set in the limits of the toolbar. all good but not totally intuative.
  2. If you want to turn a light on for the duration of a sequence its easy, click one of the timing frames press R and the whole row highlights, right click 'insert ON effect' So what the sequence of events if you want to set a DMX intensity for the duration of a sequence?

    5.0.24 RC2 Reports

    OK, for the "no click" issue, this is again down to the hidden popup. All interaction disappears with SEQ once there is a hidden popup active
  4. Matt, Got a few issues since RC2. 1) This is likely two different issues. a) For some reason, I am having issues where a file name seems to be getting duplicated (see this error and notice the file folder structure is duplicated, its actually not an identical duplication though, it looks like it replicated a folder structure within the folder structure (note c:\users and c\users - also not only one colon here))) https://www.dropbox.com/s/2xvo5ebh3umy8z2/Popup Issue.png?dl=0 b) This popup is always hidden and the only way I can get to it is via task manager and then switch to it. I can't just move the Sequencer window to uncover it because the the SEQ window is stubborn and it just 'bongs' with every click until I switch to the popup in task manager. 2) This next one is also a little weird but maybe a little related. I keep finding that I sequencer won't let me click stuff (no hidden popup) and I have to go to task manager and completely kill all LOR tasks (including LOR TRAY). I can then restart sequencer and it all starts working again as though nothing was ever wrong. N
  5. Matt, Let me start by suggesting you take a look at this screen shot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7sfobbbfnpm8lb/DMX Control References.png?dl=0 The red circles show an obvious connection. The yellow circles are where things get less obvious and I dont have lights connected to prove my theory top myself. The SEQ has created a 4x4 matrix in the sequencer, r09 c01-04, r10 c01-04, r11 c01-04 and r12 c01-04 (left most circle. when I then look at that in the prop definition view, there is a 4x4 matrix also - but the columns/rows there start at the top left A1. The Laser I want to control has 16 DMX channels (the 16 in prop definition), these are the 16 in the shape view. how do these relate to what the sequencer shows, rx by cx. N

    Partial Prop Support

    MATT - this looks spot on, good job!
  7. On my show PC I have all the hardware connected, knowing that hardware isnt there is great in debug. However..... It Ould be really useful to remove one interface (say a dmx device such as a falcon device) and use a standard preview to test lights on that device on a separate computer using the normal preview. by example. my show computer has a few LOR interfaces, a few DMX interfaces and so forth. When I am developing a DMX prop then I might take that prop and that one interface to a separate machine (my laptop) and play with things as I watch a film. The problem is that I can't do that with a standard profile because that LOR adapter is missing. Generally this is only a problem where LOR is concerned as it checks for those interfaces. I'd really like to be able to use a standard preview without those adapters being connected and to control real lights.
  8. Hi all, I'm trying to find a utility that people have used with Papagoya. The utility is called Papa Assist and it is designed to help better line up the phonetics with the movements a little more automatically that is done with Papagoya. Does anyone have it? Nick
  9. I am trying to start again with the sequence of ones of my props. It is a 24 channel DMX matrix. The way I did it last year wasn't good and so I'd like to delete the stuff in last years sequence specific to the Matrix, and then paste in a new version. The problem is that there is no delete..... I dont seem to be able to "cut" the sequence out (CTRL+X) nor clear (DEL) the data. https://www.dropbox.com/s/l35msulireobpu0/20180702 Matrix Delete.1.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/zdamqhgm1hv6o9o/20180702 Matrix Delete.2.png?dl=0

    Partial Prop Support

    Alan, thanks - yes that works but its not the solution I was hoping for from LOR. Its a lot of click, and you need to remember which com port to use for what. That all said, it solves my short term need so thanks for the ideas!

    How do I delete?

    yeah seemingly the keyboard short cuts weren't working for certain keys. going about it via the right click solved it. we think it might be a virtual machine issue.
  12. Mateo, I went to check out your santasliteshow to check out your sequences. Im not sure if you are aware the site is down, if you do.... all good, if not you might want to check it out

    Papa Assist (Utility for Papagoya)

    OK I will check out the site, and I also believe you in your impression of the tool. I'd still like to come to that conclusion for myself however if you know where it is available I still encourage you to post it?

    I dont really want to post my cell number in to a forum but if those videos are on youtube I'd love to grab that link?

    Papa Assist (Utility for Papagoya)

    It used to be hosted in the xLights forums but when xLights integrated the capability directly into their tool they removed the ability to download it as a standalone product.

    LOR Trace

    Matt, Since updating from5.0.16 to the .22 RC1 I have had regular LORtrace issues popping up. Here is the latest: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hj3zhfqwj1dcsqh/LORSequencer-trace.txt?dl=0 N

    LOR Trace

    seems that isn't quite true though. once I find the popup which isn't easy because it hides itself under other windows, but if I cler the popup - everything seems to work just fine?

    How do I delete?

    OK let me try that but I am sure I have 100 times. the DEL doesn't seem to do it. maybe its the order of things I am do it in. gimme a moment and I will try. and... San Jose. UPDATE> I remain lost - this doesn't seem to work for me. On another side note. You are jumping around with <Home> and <end> to highlight a sequence, it might just be keyboard habit, but you could also try selecting any single spot in a time line and pressing "R" that will also highlight the entire row.

    How do I delete?

    FFS - the has to be an easier way to get rid of a sequenced prop I have decided to remove from a sequence. I just spent another 45 mins manually deleting, going through each and every ribbon, a tree from a sequence after deciding it didnt make sense in a sequence.... what ever happened to right click, delete? Matt, lets screen share on this. There has to be a simple answer and I am completely missing it which points to a UI issue..
