  1. can instant SE make smart pixels act dumb

    thanks for the quick reply, i have been doing something like that and the using the scene feature to work the dumb pixels in to what i want. was just hoping there was a quicker and easier way. at least i know for sure thanks and happy holidays
  2. I know this is not what most people would do with instant sequence, however i was wondering if there is a way to have my smart pixels act like dumb lites and just stay on solid for any period of time or even the whole song. also i was wondering if there is a way to get my dumb pixels to follow my smart pixels in color but stay on solid during the entire or just parts of any instant sequences. thanks to anyone who responds i appreciate any info enjoy your holiday.
  3. how to add dmx dumb pixel to SS sequencer

    ok i figured it out and i figured i post the stupid thing i forgot in case someone down the road needs this and it helps them. well it turns out i did everything correct except i did not go into SE and select network preferences and setup dmx universe 9. i thought because i set it up on the controller that, that would be the same thing. i hope this saves someone down the line.
  4. what do you use to draw a 50 light dumb rgb strip to my visualizer so that i can use instant SS sequencer to control lights. any help would be apreciated
  5. how to add dmx dumb pixel to SS sequencer

    so i purchased a holidaycoro 3 channel dumb controller and a strip of dumb rgb pixels. i have a holidaycoro alphapix4 with 1 rs485 output running e1.31 and 2 lor 16 channel legacy units running with my usb adapter to the laptop. my question is this, how do i add it to visualizer (i.e universe 5?) so that when i use SS instant sequencer it would write it into the sequence. such as do i use string pixels and set up to universe 5 and select 50 pixels or just 3 pixels. i put in my visualizer i have so far just not sure it is correct. tommorow i plan to wire in the 3 channel to my alphapix4 and see what happens. also if anyone can confirm how to wire in the 3 channel controller to my alphapix4 and use it would be great and any help would be appreciated thankyou in advanced 2017 SHOW TEST VIZ WITH DUMB PIXELS.lee
  6. need help with SS instant export to SE

    so i figured it out, i went in to the alphapix4 web based controller (i.e 192.168.0.51 and .52) i rewrote the universes switching them back and forth between controllers and boom everything starting working. thanks everyone for trying to help i appreciate it.
  7. need help with SS instant export to SE

    yes they seem to automatically find those addresses and i looked thru the sequnces they seem to be correct. not sure what to do, is there something that needs to be checked on or something, maybe some thing has changed between version 3.14 and 3.24 that maybe reset to default that i am missing? even when i play SE with controlling lights the 2 lor units activate lights but not the 2 e1.31 units. also i just want you to know i appreciate your help thanks
  8. need help with SS instant export to SE

    ok so today i was able to use x lites to turn on my lites thru the controller. so now i am really at a loss , if the controllers work thru x lites does that mean my controllers are properly configured? also does that mean it is not a communication issue? maybe my visualizer is wrong? from earlier in thread maybe the megatree is written wrong?
  9. need help with SS instant export to SE

    i forgot to mention that the sequences i wrote last year does not do anything as well. i know i changed universes and amount of pixels, but i would think something should still light up, at least a couple of bulbs. also no lights when using SE and having control lights checked off. also i dont have universe 1-3 installed yet but i dont think that would matter, would it? my visualization seems good. i know your not familiar with holidaycoro e1.13 controllers but if anyone knows a way to confirm communication between computer and alphapix4 it would be greatly appreciated.also when i expand a pixel it says rbg channel and pixel number i think that is right idk. it does not say anything about a universe number is that an issue?
  10. last year i had 2 ctb16pc controllers and 2 holiday coro e1.31 alphapix 4 controllers and was using 8ccr license. everything worked great, this year i upgraded to the 16 ccr license and upgraded software to 3.24. when i write instant sequences and send them to SE my lor controllers work but my e1.31 controllers dont. in test mode all my lights work on 1.31 controllers and i set the universes and pixel numbers correctly, i think. i moved the universes around between the controllers compared to last year. i also am able to get into alpha pix controllers menu (192.168.0.51 and 192.168.1.52) so i know i have communication. i am sure i am doing something wrong and it is probably something so simple like maybe my visualizer is wrong. any help would be greatly appreciated. PS. i tried to load up my SE file but to big for upload 2018 ready for show all 8 universes correct.lee
  11. need help with my visualization

    yes i do plan on trying to learn SS. but i dont have as much free time as i would like. for now i just want to rely on instant seq. just in case i dont learn the rest. as for instant it is almost exactly what i want for now except for the 2 windows over the garages. would like to figure this out so i can move on to learn the next step. i am not good at learning. and i read everything i think i can. all i know is that it dont make sense that the windows keep merginging into 1 grid line or what ever it is called. i did the same with the garage doors and the other windows and it seems to have worked out. i obviosoly did something wrong just cant figure it out.

  13. need help with my visualization

    i have 2 4 output 1.31 devices from holidaycoro. i want to be able to use these to control might pixel lights on my house. when i use the visualizer set to pixel lights i need to combine 2 of my gutters of 60 pixels into 1 output. and my garage door outline i would like to combine 55 pixels for each door into 1 output. also i have 2 windows with 38 pixels i want to combine into 1 output.i also have 1 gutter that is 100 pixels. my pixel bulbs are from holidaycoro as well. the problem is when i import into SS and i set for 100 my windows with the 38 each combine and in SS when i use instant sequence and use 1 full length morph in the theme. it will react one window at a time instead of acting as 2 seperate windows. i was able to get all the other ones to work right just not that one. also if during import into SS i set it for say 60 the windows will work they way i want but then the 100 pixel gutter obviously it dosent work right. enclosed is my visualization if anyone could help me fix this i would greatly appreciate it. also not sure if i gave enough info. hope i did thanks. ps. i know my universes and prop info is a mess i have been trying all sorts of things to get it to work. 2017 try 12.lee
