  1. jr & weigh2fast4u, This is a video to show 2 different ways to deal with setting up an order for your props (Preview) and an order that you can set for your Sequences. I am heading out the door so it's a real quick attempt to show you what you can do and at least should point you in better direction. A word of warning about messing with Previews you already have done sequencing with. Be Careful NOT TO CHANGE NAMES OF PROPS. As I explain in the video, existing sequencing is alraedy attached to a prop with a certain name IF YOU change that name, chance are great S5 will will archive that prop and all the sequencing for it. Use a copy to test things out, always. The second method shown is probaly your best bet to get the order you want. I know this is incomplete, but I hope it helps. Alan...
  2. Don, I use one of these to turn on/off a fish pond fountain. This one is from Amazon, but Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart all carry them. Search Remote Control outlet. Remote Control Outlet Amazon has more selections. Hope this helps. Alan...
  3. Yes, only I created 1 arch that was skewed at the angle, then copied it 5 times Yes, exactly. By using your background picture, it allowed me to match up the perspective to the top of your fence line and using the existing dots to place the new bulbs on. Since S5 Preview Creator is not a drawing program, this was an alternative way to give you the look you are going for. Sure see below. I actually remade them this evening. I noticed in the gif, my starting pixels were on the right as opposed to yours being on the left. So now the .lpeprop matches your orignal prop desgn a little closer. I didn't add any network, channel numbers, etc. that's easy enough for you to do. I would advise loading the .lpeprop into a new preview and testing it out before adding to your current main preview. The Previews can be sensitive to prop changes. Since it is a .lpeprop file you can either group or select all and resize them to better fit your preview. Alan... Right Click, Save As jims 6 arches skewed.lpeprop
  4. Jim, From what I am understanding from your description is not so much just rotating the arches, but changing the perspective of how they look in S5. It is not something S5 is currently capable of doing, but there are other ways as shown below, but as Phil says, you would have to re-create the arches. In the S5 picture, I only created one arch and copied it 6 times, (so it really wasn't time consuming or hard to do) I lined them up close to the forced perspective picture. I also used Bulbs to create the arches as it the only way to get pixels placed at the angle they are. I left a lot out of this, if you are interested in how I made it into the S5 preview (shown) let me know and I can do a more detailed narrated video for you. I can probably do a Cad type drawing with dots so it would easier to line up the pixels for a cleaner end product. Food for thought. Alan...
  5. Here is a better example of the wiper gif. Making your own gif would make it easier to set the colors and pattern, speed etc. Right Click, Save as to try on your prop. Hope this helps. Alan...
  6. Here's a tut from a long time ago, still relevant for SS. It doesn't show how to do what you are asking for, but it may be close enough for you. In the video look at about the 8 second mark for the wipes go both left and right. I explained in the write up how to recreate these effects. See if this helps. As I was searching for that tutorial, I thought of another way it could be done. You could make a gif, that had the movements, bar thickness, colors, etc. and go that route. That would probably give you the most realistic look of a wiper blade. I made a quick sample just to test. The sample gif is flawed (it's late, I'm tired) but it shows proof of concept. Alan...
  7. Just a thought. Are you sure the Pixie16 is set to RGB? I sent a Pixie16 in for repair and I was given a new in it's place. I had my original set to RGB, and the new came to me GRB or something other than RGB. It was really confusing because all my colors were way off. It didn't make sense nothing in mysequences had changed. When I looked in hardware Editor at that Pixie16 I noticed it was set different. Might be worth a look. Alan...
  8. Craig, Is your Network Config accurate and up to date. IIRC if you are using the default Network Config (as in you have never exported your config to another name) a new install overwrites your existing config file and leaves it blank. Always a good idea to create your Network Config, then export as a new name so after upgrades it doesn't have to be recreated. This is a good way just to test a specific controller or controllers. Just a thought. Alan...
  9. I have usually found it to be F3 or F11 and even then keep tapping the F3, until it comes up or boots past the bios. (it boots past the F3 taps, then it's another F key) Can you record the screen with a phone, then playback in slow mo so you can see it? Just a thought. Alan...
  10. -1 In 5.4.2 it's easy enough. Use Sequence Compressor to create the show files, then move them to a seperate PC (if needed) Then run the Hub or Show on Demand to create the show. If this is the way it can stay, I'm ok with it. The whole process got hosed up badly when it changed from creating show files within SE to the Show on Demand creating the files "on the fly" I don't want to go back down that road again. If you need a tut on how to create show files in 5.4.2, ask and I will put one together. Alan...
  11. I remember this being discussed but forgot the deatails. I think this is the post by Matt you are referencing. Alan...
  12. My work around for this was to create another Preview with just the prop(s) I want to see, then sequence to them, when finished, open your Main Sequence and copy them in to those props. I found this to be very handy when sequnceing mouth movements onto my singing faces. The Preview is larger and no other props to distract me. It may not be the only way but it works well for me. Alan...
  13. There are different ways to do it, depending on the version you are using. This is how i create the playback files in 5.4.2. To make the sequence standalone. See this video. This video is for a CMB24D, just pick your controller. Hope this helps. Alan...
  14. Aubrey, I have run into the same issue twice. Here's the thread I started about this issue. I don't know why it happens. So far mine has been ok for the last month. In this thread Matt, suggested creating a help desk ticket, I presume so that they (LOR) could remote into your pc to see whats happening. I see you are running shows now and that may not be a good option for you. Just to clarify. When you installed 5.3.14, then uninstalled it, and reinstalled 5.4.2 did 5.4.2 work for any amount of time? and now it has happened again? As long as you don't open your sequences in 5.3.14, then nothing will change. Keep us informed as to what works and what doesn't. There are only a few of us that this happens to. Alan...
