  1. Confused about universes

    I keep it simple myself. So I would setup controller A with universe 1 -16. and therefore universe 1 will control port 1 on the controller. universe 2 will control port 2 etc etc.and in your case you only need to go to Universe 12. but the controller can go to universe16 so you would have 4 ports not being used. That would be 13,14,15,16 and that's ok. So with that said. We talk about controller B now. Since Universe 1-16 are used up, you need to start Controller B at 17-32. Again the same as prementioned but the only difference is now port 1 on controller B is Universe 17. Therefore port 2 of the B controller is controlled by Universe 18 and so on. So you will end up to Universe 32. Controller C will start at 33 - 49 universe and again port 1 of Controller C is controlled by port 33. As far as the pixel type in 50. It will multiply by 3 and the left column will show 150. you can go up to 512 or 170 pixels if you like. I hope this newbie was able to help you. These guys and gals on here are the best. Your in good hands.
  2. Curtain Effect is sideways

    Hi there. When using the Curtain Effect the visualization is facing to the right but the curtain edge is set to center. Confused as to why its not facing me as I look at the screen. Using some swag and I see the effect working but it faces out to the right side of the screen so I get a side preview of it opening and closing properly. Can I change a setting so the curtains open facing me as I look at the screen. Using Tree 360 degrees Wedges bottom left. Confused
  3. E1.31 used for roofline. PE seems limiting

    Ok thanks for the info guys. Will give it a try and see how things turn out.
  4. Hello guys and girls. I have bought 2 E1.31 controllers. Made a mega tree and had some great settings in PE to program it. Worked great neat effects pleased. This year I have added a second E1.31 for a roof line. But the choices in PE are not great. Have I gone at this incorrectly. I have pro S4. It just seems the programming choices are not great. Should I program with some other program. I find superstar very confusing to use. Honestly have never really got it to work at all. Just wondering if there were addons for S4 spefic for roof lines coming out in PE. Thanks
  5. I have 5 CTB16Pc controllers and they all work just fine on last years setup, which was WinXP and version 3.12.2. Just tested them a few mins ago. This year using computer #2. its a Windows 10 and I have a E1.31 controller attached to computer with a crossover Cat5. it works Flawlessly, But I can't get last years controllers to work. They are connected with the USB Rs485 dongle then cat5 to controller. When I go to control panel it will turn on and off the lights to which ever controller that is hooked up. So It appears I have good communication. I have "control lights" turned on in SE and in PE. I have tried Show on DEmandin Control Panel to test and just the E1.31 works perfect but my CTB16's don't work. When I hook the Rs485 dongle and cat5 to the controller the green LED oon the CCT board goes from blinking to solid. So I feel communication is established. A side note I am using Version 4.3.2 Pro. I'm not sure why the CTB's are not allowing info through. All looks like it should work. I'm at a loss......... please help thanks in advance.
  6. Hi there. I am using visualizer to view my work created with PE. Got the channels all setup in PE and in VI. The problem is that my Mega Tree has 25 ft long pixel ribbons and i only want a 12.5 ft tree. So i will fold over and come back down. No biggie that how its setup in PE and it looks good in this utility. But in VI ( visualizer) i can't set it up that way. Only edge to centre. Therefore the ribbons are only suppose to go up to top of tree. There is no folder option. So i need one of you guys to tell me I'm nuts and there is a way to fold it over and make it work in VI. thanks
  7. Can SE and PE both display in Visualizer

    I was able to get this going. My channels were not setup correctly in PE. I experimented and got things going Lesson learned, Read less think more.
  8. Hi there. Need help. I was wondering if I'm trying the impossible. Is it possible to get a short test sequence made in SE and a short test sequence made in PE to both play at the same time in visualizer. When i play back SE in Visualizer it works great. no issue there. and yes i see the PE props at the bottom of SE. So the PE info is there but not showing on visualizer. Now i am not sure if i have properly setup my channels on PE. I have the New E1.31 controller that was just released from LOR a few months ago with 16 pixel strings. I believe they are sold as 50 lights on the 25 ft string. So when i go into PE PREVIEW DESIGN of my mega tree my settings are as follows. Settings on PE for mega tree - The LIGHTS section - lights set to Pixel Curve - RGB pixels is check ON - Channel order = RGB The Shape Area - Sequence method is Pixel Editor - Shape = Tree 360 wedges - Actual# of strings = 16 - Exact # of RGB nodes /string = 50 - # of folds in each sting = 1 The Channel area - Undetermined - Max Channel 512 - Separate Unit @/Univ for each RGB is checked ON In the Visualizer properties for the mega tree Mega Tree properties Assigned channels.......... - Channel Type RGB is check ON - Device is set to DMX - Net/Univ = Unv 1 - Unit is blank - Circ/Addr = 1 So what i am building is a mega tree with 16 strings folded over. At present i have nothing hooked up to my laptop as i am just trying to see both SE and PE in the visualizer before hooking up all my controllers etc. Steps i have done so far. - read and read and watched tutorials till blue in the face. Maybe overloaded my brain. LOL - Control lights in SE are on. - i have saved in PE both Regular save and Intensity data save. - control panel is running. I don't know what else to do. Maybe i have to hook up dongles to get it to work. Any help would be great. At wits end and kinda regret buying this new controller. P.S Running Pro 4.3.2 software. Windows 10 Thank you
  9. If its not too much work can you post the link here once your done Bob.................. and you rock ... many thanks................
  10. Thanks so much. We know a beta wont be perfect. So i think we all have to be patient. But when these guys jump to it this fast OMG i can't ask for anything better than this for support. Truly remarkable............. Thanks so much for the hard work. Really impressed. Thanks
  11. I have downloaded LOR 4.3.0 and it looks great. But i open SE all good. I opened VI and loaded my visualizer file that associated with my SE file. Press play in the visualizer and LOR Visualizer error comes up Reboot Required cannot enter simulation mode. Time is running Backwards. . i have shut down the computer. Restarted a few times and same error coming up. Any hellp would be great. thank you
  12. Pixel Editor issue

    i am trying to create snowflakes falling. Easy enough in PE but i would like them to build up on the bottom till the snow piles up.
  13. Pixel Editor issue

    I have the new E1.31 controller. I have mini sequences that I have constructed to test and get to know pixel editor to sequence editor relationship. The issue when I constructed a small sequence in sequence editor called (test Sequence) all was fine. Ct16pc controllers work great when I hit play. I can see the lights blink off the controller. Good so far. Now I open up pixel editor for my mega tree. the new E1.31 is hooked up and a few test strings attached. 4 strings @ 50 Pixels each all LOR products. In pixel editor I open the sequence (Test Sequence) and setup up my channels and the mega tree. Ready to go . I see the music has imported, great. I program a short sequence and save it and play it in the little viewer great it all works great. Then I hit save intensity data which I think imports it into the sequence editor. Now if I go into sequence editor I see the cyan band across the bottom of my previous sequence I had programmed. Great thats the info from pixel editor transferred over. I press play only the old Ct16pc controller works great. Not the new E1.31. no lights at all. But if I close everything off and open control panel and press show on demand it ALL plays once and that's it. It should keep looping. But I should be able to view it easier than this. Am I doing something wrong. Also I was told that at this point I should be able to edit in sequence editor the pixel info that was transferred there for the mega tree. but there is no info to edit. Just the cyan band that says PE props and below it mega tree but no info I can edit. I need a bit of help here. The channels are good. The communication is good. I would like to edit the pixel editor info in sequencer after SAVE INTENSITY DATA has occurred. I'm wondering should I look for other software instead. Too bad I spent so much on S4 Pro. Thanks for any help.
  14. How is it done

    Hello there. I have purchased few A/C controllers and really enjoyed my first season. Now its time for new ideas and one display i keep seeing on you tube is the front a house all lit up and the sections of lights move down the string in small blocks. I am wondering how this effect is done. thanks
  15. CMB24D

    Hi there: Im new to this forum and look forward to learning as much as i can so i can put on the best light show i can for those that want to check it out. Need to represent up here in Canada. So my question is i am expanding what i presently am using. My goal is simple, I want to make 2 jumping arches with 8 sections each, but i want to use dumb LED light strips single color(white). So I have done some research and if I have it correct the CMB24D controller will work nicely with my CT16PC using suite S3 software latest version. So i want to use only 1 CMB24D to control the 16 sections seperately. Will it work with me attaching each strip to the R, G, B and + ports seperately. So technically speaking i should have 8 ports left over . i hope i explained it ok. Of course i will use and extra power supply if needed.
