    Multi-Channel Video and LOR Light show??

    . it has been discussed; create a video that is split screen, then use separate projectors for each of your screens you created. then you would only display the screen you want and block off or over hang the rest. This would work well with a window display because you could simply fill the window with half the projection and let the other half display on the wall where it wont be viewed and do the opposite with another window. Maybe that will give you some ideas
  2. I have a 12 row horizontal strips(12x50) and i only have one song for the fourth of July. Would like to have another 1 or 2. If any are willing to share i would appreciate it. matthewthegr8@yahoo.com

    Sacramento meeting?

    Interested
  4. I am NOT the best person to help you on this for i really don't know PE or S5 (its new), but i wanted to give you a response until someone better can chime in.... with SuperStar open and your sequence loaded; select scene mode> have color red selected (same for main start and end)>go to anywhere on you grid and hold the ctrl key and left click(select yes in the pop up)..........the entire grid field should have went red,,,,did all the pixels in your vis display light red? If so i would say the instant sequencer is not the best tool for testing, too many options (btw, the TMC is not the ribbons you were thinking in the video-"theme, motion, color" ((if memory serves))). If only the same half lit up as before then the problem is probably in the setup of your visualizer or PE. Sorry i couldn't help more, keep us posted

    Copying a color in Superstar

    Yup---gotta click the grid when you hold the shift! - that's what i was missing Thanks James for the that helpful hint and the PM. Doing more images this year with a new matrix so this will be handy. This is why check the forums almost daily, tricks you never realized were there. (EDIT:realized right or left mouse click will copy the color while shift is down)

    audio distortion only in a show

    audio distortion only in a show

    Thanks Jim and over modulated is an adjective that fits but the strange thing is it has never happened before, just this year. any idea where i would find those setting?
  11. My Audio was not very good this year. I was thinking my transmitter was on the frits, until my test,,,, Amazing Grace Techno, where the bass really hits, was so distorted i had to removed it from the show. Other songs have some smaller issues with slight static with highs and lows. My transmitter and PC volume settings have been readjusted, only to wind up back where they originally were. I moved my transmitter close to my PC with 3' cable (vs the normal 50' cable), went to file manager and double clicked Amazing Grace from the audio directory ,, it opened media player (or whatever its called now),,went outside to my truck radio and it played great! I put the song back in the show, started a show on demand, went to my truck radio and it was distorted again. Any idea why playing just a song would be clear and playing it with LOR would be distorted? The only thing i did to my show player was upgrade to Window 10 this year. I will continue some trouble shooting but any ideas would great. win10, czh 05, latest S4. ~Matt

    Pixel Tree or CCR Tree

    agree with MPageler, all depends on what you want. CCR flat is often bigger, brighter, and shows animation better but it is hard to compare to the cool 3D effects and spirals of the pixel(ccp) tree. I have some vids on my website or go to Bryans website where you can see some of the same songs on different tree types : http://www.superstarlights.com/Sequences/Purchase.php

    Wrapping it up

    I tore down yesterday and today---t-shirt and still sweating.

    Still confused as ever with programming my CCR and pixel tree

    You can add the new channels to the bottom of your sequence and sequence them that way. Or you can sequence it separately and add it useing “sub sequence”

    TSO 2017 tour dates are out

    Just got home! Fantastic as always! 8 of us went. 5 were first timers, 3 of us have been there 5 times. My parents went as first timers and were “shocked and amazed.”! we got a new drummer and he is awesome! tom is 100% correct there are a few vids out of 2017, one very popular one shows the show ending so be careful. Like Tom, The videos did not ruin anything for me.
