  1. Shimmer vs Twinkle Question

    You have to think of a 16 channel controller as a glorified light switch/plug. If you turn off the switch, everything attached to it will turn off. If you apply a fade down to lights, everything attached to that circuit will fade down. If you have 10 light bulbs connected to a single circuit, you can't affect just one of them, unless the bulb has some smarts to it. Incandescent and LED strings are dumb. Everything on the circuit will do the same thing. They don't know how to do anything different. RGB strings, however, have 'smarts' built into them, and thus the controller can direct different parts of the string to do different things.
  2. Shimmer vs Twinkle Question

    On the 16 channel controllers, no. The effect is for the entire string, on/off/fade up/fade down, etc, will affect the entire string. You'd have to get into RGB strings and controllers to affect individual segments of a string of lights/pixels.
  3. 50W Flood Photos (in use)

    2, 50w floods very close to the front door area during Halloween one year. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9kbapeuoru5lfnj/50w Flood - Purple.jpg?dl=0
  4. New look?

  5. Summer Sale

    Summer sale ended 50 minutes ago. Okay, I'm kidding. They do announce the sale here in the forum as well as email. It hasn't been announced yet.
  6. Pro controllers or Residential for weather

    I've used residential controllers for years here in Dallas/Fort Worth. I simply put a plastic bag over the enclosure to keep moisture out. Haven't had a problem.
  7. Timings

    Look for the Timing Grid area ... should be near the top of the sequence. It's a drop down (or button) that you can use to change/add/remove timing grids.
  8. Timings

    Sounds like you are working with a Fixed Grid. Switch to free form and you should be able to modify them.
  9. 5 Kills 4

    As far as I know, you've never been able to have two different versions on the machine at the same time.
  10. No word on S5 yet??

    Yep. Unless they come out and say otherwise, then it's just the standard renewal fee.
  11. S5 Beta : Where to download

    Generally speaking, all announcements for new software releases, beta or production, are listed in Important Announcements.
  12. See this thread. http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/27041-general-guidelines-for-bug-reports/ They do a pretty good job tracking and reporting as things go along.
  13. CTB16PC's for sale

    I've got some in Addison.
  14. Demo does not work on safari

    The software doesn't work on a MAC. Doesn't matter what web browser you are using to download, it simply will not run on a MAC.
  15. Importing Channel Config - Confusion

    There is the human readable part of a sequence, and the computer readable part. (Which is readable if you know what you are looking for.) The problem is that when you create a channel an ID is created for it. It's not an ID that you see, or will use. However, the same ID can be used in other sequences as well. Thus if you import a channel configuration (lcc) into a sequence that you've already defined channels for, then "bad things happen." (Meaning I don't remember which gets priority, but as you've seen, it's not pretty.) It's been YEARS since I've updated this post, but it should still be 98% accurate or so. http://www.lorfaq.com/faqs/software-questions/sequence-editor/41-tracks-what-they-are-and-how-they-can-benefit-you.html That will explain the concept of tracks, and how you would use them to maintain your channel layout.
