  1. PLEASE IGNORE! I FIGURED IT OUT! Needed to add view. I don't ever remember doing that. Memory getting bad I guess. Admins delete if you want! Well silly me saw a new version of 5 had come out and I upgraded. My preview channels have gone nuts! If I open an existing sequence, everything is grouped normal by group props. Yay! If I add a new sequence, using the same preview, the channel line up goes nuts! I get my existing groups and group props, and under them I get every single element in alphabetical order. The second screen shot is just part of the list showing nut you get the idea. I got this, I said, No Problem I said So I hit the drop down (circled in screen shot) and the "RESET DISPLAYED PROPS AND GROUPS" is not there. What do I do? EDIT! uninstalled 5.2 and reinstalled 5.14 and now it is doing the exact same thing.....It has never done this before!

    Choppy dimming

    Hello All! I have 5 snowflakes with dumb RGB nodes. I have each snowflake on an individual output group on a new DMX controller so not a lot of power being drawn on the channels. They work great with one exception, they fade "choppily" for lack of a better term. Will a terminator on the DMX data line help? A link to the controller is below. I don't seem to have this problem with the other two similar controllers on other props. any advice appreciated! https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B013KCH3OU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Deleting a channel in S5

    What k6ccc said! You can add and delete to your preview all day but If you don't refresh your preview in the sequence itself, it will keep using the old preview with that sequence. Whenever you change your preview, if you want that change to occour in every sequence already done, you have to refresh each sequence. I am not at home also so I cannot give you a step by step.
  9. 5.0.24 RC2. Just noticed a symbol next to my channel names. Don't remember seeing it before. What does it mean? Looks like a picture of the sun?

    How to create equalizer effect on RGB nodes

    I used the VU wizard ( ithink that's what it's called) and ran it 8 times with 8 different percentages and got 8 tracks. then it was just a matter of post 1 on for track 1 post 2 for 2 etc.... I have 8 poles with dumb rgb this year. that's how I did it. can't get more detailed as I am at work and sequencing computer is hope. I do know that once I figured it out it was quite easy.

    Extension Cord Routing ideas

    Sounds neat, but those could be LOOONNNGGGGG pieces of pvc in some cases! Why not just zip tie the cords together into a bundle, then you can roll the whole bundle together. easier and smaller storage space. We do this for items with cords running the same direction. Label both ends of course!
  12. Downloaded and installed, went well. Started checking out the items in the release note, found the preview tab, and for grins and giggles clicked on my preview I am using for 2018. Right off the bat, Channel conflict! Never realized I had one! Quickly fixed it and tried a sequence. Well durn! There is a prop in a dead spot that now lights up! LOL! Thanks guys! Works great!!

    Preview Problems

    Unfortunatly I think you have to redo your props for version 5. I had to, but for me it wasn't that big a deal, and it gave me the opprotunity to redo some that were iffy in S4. If you use an S$ preview in S5 you will get the colored dots.
