  1. Sorry I just read your 2nd post much different.
  2. Kj, I just did several moves from S4 to S5 pro and it was not an issue. A couple of questions and it will create an .loredit file Give it a try, very easy. Jack
  3. Matt Brown LOR, just finished helping me on this very issue. The Square icon suffix, indicates that those rows are applied to a Subsection of the prop or group. for more info. go to LOR---help--- motion effect rows dialog Jack
  4. Posted May 19 A little back ground info., I am taking 2- CCRll RGB Ribbons and making 8 mini-Arches each one with 25 pixels. I made a group for Arches A-1 and A-2, and then a Group for B-1 and B-2, and then a Master Group that covers all 4 mini Arches, this covers the first controller, so then I copied everything for the 2nd controller and made all the changes that was needed when copying and ended up with: GROUP A, GROUP B, MASTER GROUP A/B, GROUP C, GROUP D, AND MASTER GROUP C/D, then I made a "ALL Group Arches" group. This all takes a lot of room in the sequence page, you also have the 8 Arches, SO, the question is for all of you that have done this, is their a better way, do you use all the different set ups, etc. Thanks, Jack See ´╗┐the attached Doc. and look at the bottom of page for the physical layout of the Arches. I made the first set of arches and then copied to make all 8 arches, I then reworked as needed to get to the finial stage. You end up with 8 Arches and several different groups, In the GROUPS mode, you can select the order you want them to play back in.,OK fine, buy they play the same "Motion Effects" for both / all the arches in your group no matter how many, 2-3-4-8 that you have set up for that group. Lets back up a step to just the first Arch on the Left side of your layout, this would be part 2 of your first string of lights, how do you stop the confusion in naming, is it now arch 1 even thro it's part two of the string of that channel? OR, on your Sequence page do you move it up past arch 1 and still call it arch 2 , you also have the same issue with arches 5 & 6 or what ever you call them(the first set under the 2nd controller) This all started when I wanted to have Arches 1-3-5-7 all the same and 2-4-6-8 the same effect. I'm sure this wont be the only problem, I like the options you have as a single arch and part of a group. What is the best way in dealing with this and any other Issues that I need to be aware of? Thanks, Jack 1. If I rename any or all of the 8 separate arches after I made the Groups what happens do they still ALL work, some, or none? Arches 100 dpi.pdf

  6. Jim & JR, thanks for your input, doesn't look like any short cuts for now. I was hoping for some basic stuff for a quicker start but in the end you just keep plugging along. Thanks again, Jack
  7. Thanks JR, Always looking for a short cut (slow typist that I am) but in the end the two fingers get it done. LOL got 5 responses from you but thanks. Jack
  8. I happened to stumble across "Instant Sequences" in the help tab and got excited until I noticed only for SuperStar, however is there anything that might come close in the PRO version that would help speed things up??? I've only used the fixed grid. Thanks in Advance, Jack
  9. Little_b, Thanks, however after I selected the Preview Props and the Preview Groups and selected OK, the "add display panel" disappeared, so I ended up making a blank sequence file then exported & saved it. I then opened each sequence and imported, got it done. Thanks you got me headed in the correct direction. Jack
  10. OK, I copied all of my S4 Sequences into the latest version of S5 and my preview design for 2019. I now want to add all of my new props, 8 Arches to my sequences now in S5, I was thinking that it should of happened auto. as it was in the 2019 preview design before I updated the S4 files, but I don't see them. Looking for any ideas or how tooo's to get this done. Thanks, Jack
  11. Jim, Thanks for the feed back. I'm not sure how to compare SuperStar to Groups. Do you have your 6 arches all doing the same function or do you break it down in SS, meaning 1 arch might be Blue and the next one Red, or all left to right etc Thanks, Jack
  12. Mr.P, Correct, 25 Pixels / 75 Channels each Arch, had it this way first then I changed it for some reason????
  13. A little back ground info., I am taking 2- CCRll RGB Ribbons and making 8 mini-Arches each one with 25 channels per arch. (I wanted to add a sketch but it's to large of file 825 kbytes???). I made a group for Arches A-1 and A-2, and then a Group for B-1 and B-2, and then a Master Group that covers all 4 mini Arches, this covers the first controller, so then I copied everything for the 2nd controller and made all the changes that was needed when copying and ended up with: GROUP A, GROUP B, MASTER GROUP A/B, GROUP C, GROUP D, AND MASTER GROUP C/D, then I made a "ALL Group Arches" group. This all takes a lot of room in the sequence page, you also have the 8 Arches, SO, the question is for all of you that have done this, is their a better way, do you use all the different set ups, etc. Thanks, Jack Using S5 ver 5.2.4 pro
  14. OK, just went to the Expo web site and it has been updated since I last took a look. I'm starting to understand a lot more, it looks like the classes that I would be interested in would be during the 3 day show (S5 classes) and would be covered by the 3 Day Pass of $215.00 some of the other classes look interesting but first things first. Someplace I read a post of a Texas show last October but now I'm not sure what I was looking at. Sorry for asking silly questions above, any advice would still be helpful. Thanks again, Jack
  15. Good Morning All, I have several questions about the Classes that will be given this year. 1. From what I saw in the Expo web site, the classes are geared more to the beginner and could be more on S4 than S5, I'm NOT saying that I'm an expert but I made the switch to S5 and DONT want to sit thru the other versions, sorry. 2. Didn't get the cost per class or for the PRE 3 days any help 3. Does anyone have a finial list of classes yet, need to make up my mind if I should go, have a room already just don't know if it will be worth it? 4. What about the Texas Expo / Show will that happen this year is it any good, any info? 5. Who from LOR will be there? 6. Will most of my time be taken up with the expo or, more of a party, family vacation type of show or something in between? Just a long flight from Denver and its going to be much hotter than at home, need to get my head on square so I can enjoy. Thanks for any responses, Jack
