  1. Tuning CCR color temp?

    Is there a way to tune the color temperature for the controllers so I can get more uniform white across all strings? I have several original CCR's that are either too yellow or too blue compared to my newer strings. Thanks!
  2. Trouble with pixel on my new CCR Pixie2

    Tech support has told me there's a bug in Pixie firmware when running in enhanced mode and a firmware update will be needed to remedy the issue. Fingers crossed they can track it down soon. In the mean time I'm in the garage building my new 6 horizontal CCR panel to hang over my garage door to display sequences that include text this year!
  3. Trouble with pixel on my new CCR Pixie2

    Re-loaded my 6 CCR text sequence and see it's having trouble with the last pixel on 1 string. Swapped the connectors on the Pixie2 and the trouble follows the channel (doesn't stay with the string). It seems to mainly get hung up on green. Did some further testing with text colors all red, all green, all blue and rainbow. The all solid color text works perfectly. The rainbow setting (each letter different color in Superstar Sequencer) is where that pixel isn't happy. Also did a reset on the Pixie2, but that didn't change anything.
  4. Trouble with pixel on my new CCR Pixie2

    Good idea, I swapped the 2 CCR's. Most of the time there's an issue on both strings at the same time, but for the times it's not a mirrored issue, when I changed the strings, the issue followed the controller channel. This leads me to believe it could be the signal coming from the controller. Again, the test sequence produced by pressing the white tactile button in the controller plays perfectly. But I ran this sequence on 2 other channels/controllers and it played perfectly. I created a ticket. Not sure there's anything else I can try to remedy this? Thanks.
  5. Trouble with pixel on my new CCR Pixie2

    I went ahead and tested this sequence on two other channels (old CCR controllers) and it worked perfectly. Not sure if I have a bad component or if it's a bug. Very discouraged at this point though as I was hoping to not be dead in the water 5 minutes into new set up.
  6. Trouble with pixel on my new CCR Pixie2

    I didn't notice it on the text sequences I was running on all 6 channels either. Not until this sequence that has a lot of fading and overlapping of channels.
  7. Trouble with pixel on my new CCR Pixie2

    I'm running firmware 1.03 on the Pixie2 and all the latest Light-O-Rama software.
  8. I opened up my new CCR box today that has a Pixie2 and two CCR's. It runs the test pattern OK, but when I ran a sequence I made last year for 2 horizontal CCR's, the pixel furthest from the white cable on both channels gets messed up sometimes. See this video for what's going on. The weirdness going on with the last pixel is not supposed to be happening. Please let me know if this is something that can be fixed. Thanks!

    I changed the network speed to 500k and that fixed the rainbow issue on the super quick ramp up and down to white flashes. Chris

    OK, I'll check tonight what the setting is. Maybe that will help the white flashes. Chris
  11. Knight Rider CCR

    I thought I saw in one of the tutorials there was a way to set the Network to a "fast" setting for the CCR's and the RS485 adapter? It's grayed out in my Sequence Editor though. Chris
  12. Knight Rider CCR

    It's nothing too spectactular, but here's the Knight Rider lights I did tonight with my 2 CCR's. Notice on a couple of the quick full white flashes a rainbow look. I don't know if I have my controller set up to Fast? In Sequence Editor, the Channel Configuration is grayed out as Regular? Or maybe the white flash is just too short? Chris
  13. Knight Rider CCR

    Alan, I tried your settings. It still has a problem with opaque black covering the previous scan's red. In the above video, you can see it never goes all the way off the screen. So far, the best I have is a Smooth Effects Shockwave with 15 width at start and end, 2 accelleration, 1 color (red). And then copy/paste back to back with reversed. It looks much better as the transparence seems to not affect the previous scan. But it doesn't match the video perfectly as there is a leading black to red gradient also, which is nice, but it's too wide. Chris

    Trying to do red KITT scanner on 2 horizontal CCR's. Want wide red line with long faded black trail like this: I thought I could use morphs, but when it reversed direction to second morph, the black tail is blacking on the previous red line. Is there a transparency option? Tried using Smooth Effects Shockwave (the transparency works), but it has leading faded black in addition to the trailing faded black tail. Looks better, but not perfect. Thanks, Chris
  15. Messed up my .sup file a little?

    OK, great, that worked. Weird thing was they were "invisible" on the time line until I deleted one of them, then about 10 would show up on different levels (for both scenes and morphs) Thanks, Chris
