    Morphing from On to Off

    Sorry for the confusion, but yes the preview seen at 0:22-0:28 is the same preview seen in 0:16-0:22 it’s just as you said from 0:22-0:28 the majority of the props are there but just not turning on as they should be. This same problem had happened to me about a week ago on another sequence but I had not thought to restart the sequencer and just skipped that section for the time being. I’ll have to double check that other sequence again to see if restarting the program solved that problem.

    Morphing from On to Off

    **Update: It seems the solution in this case is as simple as closing and reopening the sequencer. ** I believe I may have come across another issue. As you may be able to tell, I use a decent amount of morphs in my show haha. They all have been working great since the last update. In this particular case, I noticed that when running two morphs moving from the edges to the center of the display the pixels (rooflines+windows) were not being controlled by the effect in the sequencers playback, while all of the light strings were. To double check everything I opened up superstar and saw in its preview that the pixels were being controlled as expected. This can be seen in the first attached example. In the second example, I copy/pasted the effect to another group (From a group with multicolored bushes to one using warm white bushes), opened superstar to detect the new props in this group, saved the changes and got a very unexpected result where it was only controlling the props that had changed from the previous group. This again only seems to happen during playback in the sequencer. Example 1: Example 2:

    Excellent! Thanks for your help with this, looking forward to the next release.

    Morphing from On to Off

    Hello again Brian, Last night I had downloaded the most recent release of S5 and noticed that all of the single-color props seem to be included in the transition from superstar to the sequencer but all of the multi colored props are left out. Is there something that I now need to modify to include the multi colored props or do you think that this is still an ongoing issue? Thanks!
  5. This issue is in Superstar using Windows 10 on LOR version 5.0.18 I took a break from sequencing for a bit hoping for the next update to be released, but decided to continue on today. I returned to find the certain pixels that I had already sequenced through the "insert superstar effect" were now not being controlled by that effect. I opened the animation in superstar and when trying to reselect the pixels (in this case a horizontal area on the upper roof line) and hitting modify, the same pixels revert to being deselected. In addition to the modify option, I tried deleting the effect entirely and re-adding it with the same results. This has also caused superstar to crash after a few attempts at it. Not sure as to it's repeatability as it seems to happen somewhat randomly throughout my sequence, however other instances allowed me to successfully modify it. Video attached: (I apologize for the quality)

    Good to know, so if I begin sequencing will the effects playback correctly whenever the update is released? Thanks for the tip with the windows, I didn’t even know that you could morph around them using SS. Are there any comprehensive documents out there explaining the different effects that are possible and how to achieve them?

    Wouldn't let me upload full screenshot due to file size

    Morphing from On to Off

    Thanks! Worked perfectly! I am using S5 currently and the preview in Superstar showed the effect perfectly. I then closed the superstar popup and clicked that I wanted to save the changes but then when I played it in the sequencer it seems to have removed many of the channels. Ill attach screenshots of the simulation in superstar vs after I insert it into the sequencer.
  9. I am new to using superstar and am trying to figure out how to do this: My sequence starts with all of the lights on in my display, I am looking to have a "Wave of black" move across from left to right to turn them all off. I've tried playing around with covering up the beginning of the morph with white but I seem to loose control over how fast that "wave of black" moves across my house. Any ideas?

    Superstar Visualization

    I used the preview as well with "High Res" option selected. I just switched it to "Low Res" and that solved the problem. I suppose i'll have to find the threshold between the two of them that gives the most detection lines without exceeding the limit. Thanks for the help, I had completely forgotten about that.

    Superstar Visualization

    Thanks, just got that to work! Now it's displaying an error about the width of my visualization? I didn't remember seeing any dimensional settings when creating the preview.
  12. I just downloaded S5 yesterday to begin to get a feel for it- one thing that I cannot seem to figure out deals with the new previews. I just made a brand new preview for my whole display using the sequencer. I now want to get that preview into superstar to put a morph across all the elements of my display (pixels and non-pixels). It appears I can only import my old visualizer files into superstar though. I tried right clicking on a pixel row in the grid to import a superstar effect but that only seems to work for one element at a time (such as my upper roof line) and it only works for RGB elements. I also tried creating a group with everything in it but I don't get the option to import a superstar effect. Anybody know what I am doing wrong? I just want to get my new preview to show up in superstar.

    FM Transmitter Reception

    Ill double check all of the power settings in the transmitter later and if that doesn’t fix it I’ll try moving it closer to the road

    FM Transmitter Reception

    That was it, thanks! Completely forget I had one in my center console, hadn’t used it in a bit. However now when sitting out front every few seconds the audio fades to static then comes right back. Any ideas on that? Didn’t happen in the other car
  15. Hello all, over the summer I had built a Ramsey FM25B transmitter and am just now setting it up for my halloween display. When testing it today in my car without a whip antenna I got no reception at all anywhere in my cul-de-sac and some static when pulling up my driveway. I then tried it in the family minivan with a whip antenna and got reception throughout my entire cul de sac. Have any of you ever ran into this issue where only certain cars seem to pick up audio? The Transmitter is less than 100 feet from the road and is inside my house, i was thinking I may have to put it in some type of weatherproof enclosure closer to the road but before purchasing all the necessary (and lengthy) cables I'd like to hear some other opinions, thanks!
