  1. I've seen a lot of topics about CCR trees with conventional light toppers, such as concentric stars using 6 channels. I want to try concentric stars using 100 CCPs (10 pixels for star in center, then 20 pixel star, 30 pixel and 40 pixel for outside star). This would allow me to do some of the same effects, but with color and chases on the star as well as the tree. My question - how would I create or map this in visualizer? I was going to do the star separately as a prop, then import it into my overall scene visualization, but not sure if each concentric star is considered a prop or fixture of its own for programming. If so, I assume I'd split the CCP into Master/Slave sections, but I haven't seen a video showing much about this, and the process isn't clear (to me at least) from the online info. A picture of my design is included. My thought is that CCP strand one will be divided twice (10 pixels, 20 pixels, and 20 pixels), and strand two will be divided once (10 pixels and 40 pixels). I'm probably diving in too deep for a new guy, but thought I'd ask. How would you set this up, export it as a prop, then import it into your visualizer. I'd like to use this single element again in the future, plus I thought it would be easier to set up individually. Thanks, Ed Walker
  2. We're putting on a display for our community at a camp we run in Texas. On our ropes course we have a perfect spot to do two 12 CCR pixel trees, plus another matrix, for a total of 36 CCRs, plus about eight 16-channel controllers. I do have background in stage lighting, as well as in non-linear audio and video editing, but I've been a Mac guy for a lot of years now. It's hard going back! My question - I've been reading about network delays for people putting only 3-4 CCRS on a show. Is it even feasible to attempt 36 CCR strings in one production? I bought a dedicated PC laptop to run things (after an unsuccessful Parallels/Windows 7 attempt), and it has 4 USB ports, but I have a lot of programming to do, and can't afford to build shows that won't work. What are larger commercial displays using in terms of hardware, etc.? Will LOR networks handle this? Thanks, Ed Walker Sabine Creek Ranch
  3. Mac guy. Just got Parallels and Windows 7 for the first time just for LOR show. All seems fine with windows, but when I launch LOR control panel to set up, it won't allow me to create the folder for sequences, then says LOR wasn't installed correctly. Uninstalled and re-installed. (This is the reason I go with Mac). Any ideas? Thanks, Ed Walker
