  1. You need matt to respond, but what is driving the 100 pixels. is it a CCB device?
  2. I have robotic Snowmen from Mike Ziemkowski that previously in S4 I had sequenced in a subsequence due to the volume of channels in my normal sequences. It was necessary to remove delay and help the servos work properly. In moving to S5 I tried inserting them within the normal sequence and had the same delays and improper functioning of the Servo Units on the regular LOR network (non enhanced). In S5 you can insert a subsequence to your Sequence. That subsequence must be a LMS file or a PLAY version of the LOREDIT. I thought it had to be only LMS files because LOREDIT files were not being seen, until I realized that you have to create the PLAY version of the LOREDIT and then it would work that way. Hope this helps anyone with servo's.

    Cosmic Color Props

    How will enhanced change this. They would go from doing nothing to something just by that setting?
  4. I’m hoping Matt sees this and responds. I have older Cosmic COlor Ribbons and Cosmic Color pixels (old 50 count version). They are recognizeable by Hardware E and the mapping is all set. I created these a new props and I see them in S5 preview as well as in the sequence tool but nothing is happening outside for the arches. I can make them work thru HE, but now in the show or sequence running live from Sequence editor. How are you suppose to create the prop. My CCRs are just on arches. 1 per arch. I created them by just selecting RGB lights, a predesigned Arch at 50 pixels. The Aux A and Controller assignments are correct. What am I missing? The CCPs are on bells and I did a custom prop with the first 50 as one side and the 2nd 50 as the other side. I didn’t set it up as separate strings. They work but the color is wacky. The prop shows 100 pixels and is set up as a single controller ID, not 2. When I look in SE at the individual pixels, the definition makes no sense as it looks like Row and Column designations but they aren’t where the Pixels are in the custom matrix i drew them in. Help please. Part of my show is dark. Bad, very bad LOL
  5. so my guess is the old will eventually have to be replaced entirely with the new. Lovely. That was my fear. Thanks.
  6. So are the new CCP controllers 12V?
  7. Between the old 50 count Cosmic Color pixels to the new 100 count pixels, are they both 12V or is the old 5v and the new 12v?
  8. I'm had a local guy reach out and ask me if someone could sequence a matrix grid 25 x 24 for this guy's Christmas display. It involves adding a video for one whole sequence and then adding effects for the matrix to existing sequences he's bought from LOR. Anyone interested please let me know. he'd like it sooner rather than later.

    Colorfill not working

    Sad I didn't get a response but I figured it out. You first have to pick a color and apply it to the Prop on the Grid. Once there you can double click a cell and then change out the color.
  10. I see in the instructions Matt provided this summer in Expo for changing RGB colors. It says double click on COLOR from the tool bar. If I try to double click on the New Effect Color option on the tool bar it only allows a single click and opens the color selection boxes. I wanted to use Colorfil and when I click on it to change a color for an RGB device nothing happens. What am I missing?
  11. ok, i'm trying to create a prop for the 2 strings (50 ct) and draw it. Have a question over how to set up this prop. Do I set up a separate unit ID for each string as that's not how I've used these in the past just using S4. I've never done this in the pixel editor and I'm trying to figure out if I create one long unit using 100 ct pixels with the LOR ID, or set up a separate unit ID for each string. What does anyone recommend?

    Spiral Trees - how to?

    JR - THanks for the note - so can those be imported or changed to props that would work in S5?
  13. playing with S5. Never did anything previously where I had pixel editor so need input. I wrap small trees spirally from the bottom up with pixels. How can I create such an item in the Props? The trees that are there are for vertical strings. Trying to custom draw it is impossible given there are some pixels on the back etc.
  14. Does anyone know a good glue that will stick to the back of CCRs or the Dumb pixel strip? I'm trying to glue this to some PVC and nothing seems to be holding it. Gorilla Glue, Plastic based Glue, Loctite Super Glue.... none have worked.
