I need a lot of help quick, here is the situation....
New for this year...S4 Pro, Pixie16D, Showtime G3 Director, 1200 pixels (16x48 8 ft mega tree, 4x100 pixel arches). The mega tree will use 8 channels, 16 strips of 48, folded at the top of the tree between 48 and 49, so each string is 96 pixels. 4 channels will go unused for now.
Previous years was a mini director, 2x CMD24 dumb controllers, house ourline in dumb rgb, 8 rgb floods, I have 2x CTB16's, three 12v power supplies (2x 400w & 1x 100w) and the older basic plus software.
This is my first year doing pixels, when I ordered my stuff three months ago, I figured I would have 3 months to play and experiment with the new software and pixels. But thank to LOR, I just got my equipment Friday. Now I have 1 week to get it all running. I am not worried about sequencing, however it's the setup that has me confused. I am running a few bought sequences from Wowlights with RGB pixel support, later when I get it working I will work on adding pixels to my existing sequences I built.
This is where I need help, where do I start? Do I start with recognizing the controller? Do I then setup Visualizer ( I am considering starting from scratch), I have pixel editor, but not showtime, do I start with pixel editor. I need help with what is the proper sequence of events. Or should I just go with last year's display and sadly pack the pixels away?
