  1. Matt, I'm still trying to sort this out. I took my laptop outside last night to run a show. All but one prop played fine. I have a Pixie16 on Aux G Comm10 Units 36-45 and it would not light up when played thru the Show on Demand. If I played the same song through Sequencer with Control Lights "ON" it would light as expected. I ran the song through Verifier and no errors noted. On other songs, the prop lit and played fine with Show on Demand. I then realized I had ver 5.0.22-RC1 installed on the Show PC and ver 5.0.024-RC1 on my sequencing PC. I don't remember making any modifications to the sequence since I updated to 5.0.24-RC1 on the sequencing PC. Hoping that it had something to do with the 2 different versions on both pc's (doubtful, but I was at a loss for the problem) I updated the show pc to ver 5.0.24-RC1. The issue remained. My method to updating both PC's was just to install the new version over the older version. All went well or so I thought. I thought maybe, I needed to do a cleaner install on both PC's. I uninstalled on both pc's and ran LORWipe, rebooted and reinstalled 5.0.24-RC1 on both pc's. In my prepping for uninstalling I noticed on the show PC that in CCleaner (Crap Cleaner) it was reporting that I had ver 5.0.22 installed even though I had upgraded to ver 5.0.24-RC1. It also showed that the file size was 101mb. After I updated the show PC (laptop) it also showed ver 5.0.22 was installed, however the file size was 105mb. Still not understanding what was happening, I copied all the relevant sequencing files to the show PC and created new playback files from there. The files sizes *.lid and *.lms files were much bigger this time. I took the show PC out to the props, ran Show on Demand and the prop lit as expected. However now I cannot get my sequencing PC to create playback files that will light this prop. It is an odd problem, that only shows up while actually running the Show on Demand. All the sequencing looks and plays fine in sequencer. Since the prop will not light with Show on Demand, but will light 10 seconds later when run through Sequencer with Control Light "ON" I have ruled out a bad connection, cable. The ver numbers not matching may not be an issue,, but it seemed you guys needed to know this. I am also puzzled why the install on one pc is 101mb and the other pc is 105mb. Meanwhile I am uninstalling, wiping, and reinstalling the software today to see if I can sort all this out. Any thoughts? Alan...

    My July 4th "light" and noise show

    Very nice! Things go boom with lights. 😎 We have a guy in the shop who bought $1,000.00 worth of fireworks this year. Thursday morning everyone asked him to hold his hands for a finger count.

    AutoFlip clipboard tool for S5

    heh Bob, I'm all about doing short gifs /videos to illustrate issues. It's makes it easier to understand. I got busy and lazy last night and it didn't happen. Anyways, here's a short video to explain what I am seeing. I did not read anywhere, that Motion Effects would not work. Maybe I missed something. If however this were able to work it would be very cool. Thanks in advance for looking into it. Alan...

    AutoFlip clipboard tool for S5

    Bob, Is AutoFlip meant to flip a clipboard that is comprised of Motion Effects? When I try to do this, whatever Motion Effects are in the original copy get changed to Colorwash in the flipped copy. TIA, Alan...

    Drone Recording (Audio)

    Tom's comments are right on point. Your friends drone problems most likely had to do with the cold weather. Here's DJI's tip for cold weather flying. There is a lot more info on DJI's website. https://www.dji.com/ Alan...
  8. Eric, Just a guess, are you sure S5 is seeing this Matrix as a 3,600 channel count prop? To check do the following; Alan...
  9. I found this issue while creating another video. It deals with Network Configuration. I loaded S4 version 4.3.22 and it it did it there also. It's not a huge thing just seems like an unnecessary step. At the 1:30 mark while Importing a Config into Network preferences it pops up a window asking to enter information for LOR network Aux O. This has nothing to do with importing a saved config. Like I said not a big deal, just seems out of place. Alan...

    Partial Prop Support

    *Edit* I see you got an answer while I was making my movie and adding this post. Is this something that will help? If I understand your question correctly, you are wanting to test only 1 or 2 props at a time with another pc (laptop)? If so, this is how I do it. See the video below. It is important to note, that *if* you are testing in Sequencer an already made sequence (done with Sequencer) and have moved it to another PC for testing, any pictures that were used in Effect Generator must also be transfered to the testing pc. Likewise any Superstar effects that were add to the original sequence (.avi) must also be copied to the pc used for testing. Since the name of the testing PC is different from the PC used to create the sequence are different pictures and .avi will not found until you Change Directories for them in the testing PC. Here is how I setup network Config to test individual props. Is this is not what you are asking then please disregard. Alan...

    Auto Sequence Feature

    Auto Sequence Feature

    Brian, I really like this feature, but have found an issue when using the color black in the "Cycle Through Colors Below" option. If you select 1 or a group of effects and the color black is one of the colors used, the outline selection box does not show. the effects still work, it is just hard to see exactly what effects are selected. This makes it difficult when trying to edit colors in the effects. If it matters this is in the S5 version of SS. Alan... Handy gif to illustrate the issue. 🤓

    Auto Sequence Feature

    Thanks Brian, This will help in areas of the sequence that are really mundane to sequence. Nice Addition to Superstar! Jim, yes the features are in S5. I haven't got to play with it yet, but I will put these features to good use. Alan...

    5.0.20 Changed Prop Preview

    Matt, I tried what you suggested but could not get it to work. Btw downloading a prop is slick idea. My props are not wired like Brians. He has each starting point on the left. I mixed mine up so that I could get all three CCR controllers and power supplies mounted in a weather proof enclosure as they are permanently mounted. Here is a picture of how my Circles are wired. Brian also has his circle as one continuous string, whereas I made mine 2 Arches 1 flipped to make circle. I found this easier to make a group with 2 arches vertical stacked so that the bottom arch could be "flipped horizontally" to match my existing SS sequences. I tried Brians circles in every configuration I could think of. SS sequences would not import properly and when a Group for Preview was made the circles would show bars left/right, but go blank during up/down movements. As I said above, it was working fine in 5.0.18. I was able to create and manipulate group to get all the functions to work. ie. SS, preview for up/down bars and left/right bars. I am testing the props live, as in I have the laptop hooked up and can change the Preview and instantly see the result, both in SE and on the props. The other strange thing I am seeing is that as in the gifs in the first post, if I Click the Selection Arrow and the click once (not play) on the Imported SS sequence line, the props lights and play as they should. Exactly like in my first post Gif#2. It shows properly on the prop and in SE. As soon as I hit the play button, it does exactly what is shown the original post Gif #3. I am in the middle of my show season and still am sequencing for new props with 5.0.18. I backed up my sequences and have a notebook I can configure to plays show files on, thus leaving my laptop with 5.0.20 on it for testing. (notebooks don't have opengl and won't run SE) Any other sugestions? TIA Alan...
