  1. I didn’t think about that. Thanks I will do it.
  2. Yea I know I tried to find the answer by searching this forum and also the facebook group but I couldn't find anything. I would rather get my answers here so I don't have to deal with the xlights trolls. I am sure I am missing something. It is the show all. I was moving around my singing tree prop channels and I wasn't watching the length of the placement bar. It duplicated itself outside of my prop as a main element channel. I tried to figure out how to get rid of it but in the end I just hid it. I would like to know how to delete in case it happens again. It sure would be a big help if there was more delete control on the sequence editor page for stupid mistakes.
  3. I figured it out. It was in superstar scaling. Originally it was set as source 100 destination 50. I had changed the destination to 100 but it wouldn't work. I had to toggle the scaling on the source from 100 to 50 and then it worked. Thanks for all of your assistance.
  4. Well I am having the same issue. I created a custom singing Christmas tree prop using a LOR controller and I cannot change the channel colors. It makes them all one color. The double click on the channel to select a different color does not work. I am running V5.4.2.
  5. I checked my superstar setup and it is set up for 100 pixels. I generated this myself using the SS instant sequence to just give the prop some color effects 4 years ago in S4. Even when I try to do it from scratch using instant sequence it will still only display 50 pixels in the preview. The config for the prop that worked and the prop that doesn't are exactly the same. The only difference is the one that worked is using a E1.31 DMX based controller. I am going to have to just stick with the exporting to LMS file method and cut and paste like I had to do in S4. If I have more time I may try to do it as a DMX controller and see what that does but for now I have enough to do trying to convert everything over to S5.
  6. I am having the same issue and I have 5.4.2. Cannot remove duplicate channel entry from re-arranging channels. Maybe I am missing something but I cannot seem to figure out how to remove it.
  7. I never ran the visualizer in S4 and I just exported the SS file to a lms file and pasted into the SE. It ran just fine. The issue this year is the S5 preview showing only 50 pixels. I tried to set it up both manually and automatically. The first attempt was by selecting the pixie 8 and, setting the unit ID, and letting it do its thing. The pixie is running 100 pixels just fine. I verified this by exporting the superstar file to an lms file and pasting it into the SE. When I do this the preview works just fine. If you do the setup correctly and insert a superstar effect try to just do an instant sequence and tell me if your SS visualizer preview shows all 100 pixels sequenced. Then close it, save it and let it populate you sequence editor track. Run play and see if the preview model shows all 100 pixels. Like I said it is strange that one of my other props worked just fine. I like your idea of trying to set it up as a pixcon 16. I will review your notes, check everything again, and try that tonight. Thanks
  8. Moving from S4 to S5 and I am having S5 Superstar Integration and visualization issue. Pixie 8 using 2 channels at 100 pixels each. Created two 100 pixel props in preview consisting of 2 segments each using Lor unit ID for each port. Added the props to the sequencer Selected the row of one and chose to insert superstar effect. Superstar opens and I opened a superstar S4 file from last years display for this prop that I had to export to a lms file, copy and paste into SE to get it to work. I then set the destination pixels to 100 in the scale area (after selecting all and saving as a different file) SS only shows the 100 pixels in visualizer but will only play 50 of them. When saved back into the sequencer it only shows 50 pixels in the preview. Another prop I have is 100 pixels but it is set up as a DMX mode E1.31 controller and I went through the same process as I described (except it has 12 segments) and it worked just fine. I can export the superstar file to an LMS file and it has 100 pixels so it is configured properly but I don’t want to have to do the copy paste thing every time I change it. The computer I am using is a new build and has nothing on it but S5. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
