  1. Thanks guys, I just wanted to make sure. Big difference between S4 and S5 files Merry HO HO ho
  2. I want to clean up my sequence folder, Is there any reason to keep the old style .lms files, I don't think so but wanted to check first. Thanks to all that respond. Jack
  3. Sorry I just read your 2nd post much different.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Mr.P, Correct, 25 Pixels / 75 Channels each Arch, had it this way first then I changed it for some reason????
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. I think all of the above posts should be going to "Default" I just made a comment to Kurt. Thanks, Jack
  19. If your Playback window doesn't open go to the Window Tab on the Sequence page and click on View Playback Window. Sometimes you have to resize the Image. Jack
  20. Still looking for the best/biggest file size in bytes for the Background Image however, the answer to where do I replace/add a Back ground Image, Go to the Preview Design page, look to the bottom of the page and you will see a Background Tab, click on it. Hint, Know the location of your new Image that you want to use, click on Change or Add, fill in the location of your new Image, and Save.
  21. I saw Matt Browns response to "Little_b", Sept. 2,2018 in the Forum talking about "Preview Expansion" and was able to get to the point where you grab the group and shift it into ??? (moving your props from old background pic to the new one). Thanks, Jack
  22. Need / want, to replace my current background image. I know that the larger file sizes the longer it takes to load, my question is what is LOR recommendation for file size? Also, in S5 where do I find this page, the help file is not updated for S5? Thanks, Jack
  23. Matt, I need to replace my background photo also. My question is what is the best / biggest size of file 1-2-3-20 Mbyte's that works well in S5? Jack
  24. Kurt, I also had some similar issues when I was running S4 pro for the Season. Go to LOR web site and look for a tab on Network Speeds. 3 things that you might want to look at is : 1. Is your Network set to ELOR or Enhanced mode? 2. Is speed, I had to kick my setting up to 500k as I was have slow responses, lights sticking in one sequence but not another my Pixie 16 tree was all messed up etc. 115k helped and might have been OK But.....(I was getting cold and 10 days before xmas and on and on) 3. Check and recheck your Cat 5 cables, they must be clean, ( high speed does not like dirty connections) I have 1 at 200ft., 1 at 100ft.,1 at 50 ft. and several at 25ft. You said that you are running 2 light linkers this might be your problem they are only good for 115k, LOR was telling me that I might want to go to 2 networks as I was getting close to max pixels of 2400? I played around a little and found that the Aux A port ran the same as the regular network until you config it for 2 networks, I split my loop of cat.5 cable and split my 2 pixie trees one on each leg along with other AC controllers and Floods helped a bunch. I just went to S5 last month so its going to be show time in July (lots warmer for testing) Good Luck next year, Jack
