  1. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    This was the key issue to get the DMX working in the Visualizer. You have to launch the LOR Control Panel, which in turn starts the Comm Listener for DMX to display in the Visualizer. Thanks again, k6ccc!

    I think what we discovered here is that LOR only recognizes WMV files. As long as they are the basis for the sequence it will play on the external monitor as desired. Hope this helps anyone trying to do the same thing! Merry Christmas all!

    ND, thanks. I maxed out my daily limit of thank you trophy's today. I so do appreciate you gentlemen helping me out!
  4. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    Okay, good news! I went into the Advanced Network Configurator and changed the COM port to #3 (which is the one specified on my "Build Computer") and checked each RGB channel in my 8 floods and they now all work in the Visualizer! THANK YOU GUYS for the help. I'm learning and really do appreciate your help! If you drink, have a virtual beer on me! Merry Christmas, Jeff
  5. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    I haven't purchased a DMX controller yet. I was hoping I could sequence a show, see it in the Visualizer on my one PC and then once I'm happy with it move it over to my pc dedicated to running my show. Then I would have the DMX controller running on the show computer. Can DMX sequences be set to communicate via the "Build PC" by way of the COM port then? Serial as you say?
  6. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    It's been said there is no question that is dumb. Well, maybe in my case there is! No problem. I'm just trying to tackle the Visualizer issue so I can see my DMX Floods to sequence them. I believe the IP address comes into play when I add the sequence to my "Show" computer. That unit is a new laptop I just got and am dedicating it to my show. It's running the R485 via USB that controls the LOR units. The quartet of HolidayCoro trees I have is utilizing 32 channels of course. I haven't configured the laptop to run the DMX controller yet. Does that make sense? Thanks, Jeff

    Thanks, Jim... you're the rambilin' man!
  8. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    I see that the DMX is set to an IP address. Perhaps that is what needs to be configured on my "build" and then show computer? Or, would it be the COMM listener port? Thanks, Jeff
  9. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    I'll check that Jim. Sorry, I tried to pick the best discussion area. I'm a newbie. The notice on each kind of conflicted on where to post. I have the network configuration settings to DMX universe, and all channels set. I'll check the Comm Listener. Thank you so much for your help! Jeff

    I'll add that I'm just trying right now to get the Visualizer to display the RGB Floods so I can sequence them. They are not displaying in the Visualizer like the LOR channels are.
  11. SE & Visualizer Integration V.4.3.24 Pro

    Yes, I'm doing the sequences on one computer and then ship them out to my dedicated laptop for the show.
  12. Greetings all, I am trying to add 8 Dumb RGB Floods as a DMX Universe in the SE and Vi software (for visualization in the Visualizer only at this point) in a sequence I am editing. I've added the 8 floods into the SE and they are all RGB, giving me 24 circuits (correct?). I have drawn in the 8 floods in the Visualizer using the "Draw Floods" option in the toolbar. I assigned them I believe properly in the RGB Channel settings, and when I run the SE they show "ON" or Fade, etc. However, they do not display in the Visualizer. I have other props in the sequence which are assigned to LOR 16 channel controllers and they display in the Vi properly. This is my first "experiment" with DMX. I've watched video's, read, etc., etc., but like others, I may be overlooking the obvious. Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
  13. Adding Video Projector

    Alan, Hats off to you bro. Yes, I'll check those out. Thanks! I've been doing video/multimedia as a hobby/job at times since HS. That's about 40+ years now! I've gone from linear to non-linear, and now using the computer to do sequencing. It fascinates me (and blows others away when they see it). I've always wanted to put together the three elements (lights, sound & video) for Christmas. I just checked it out on props which I still have to finish up! It looked pretty cool. Perhaps, I'll add another controller and get some floods and other goodies. lol My show will be really nothing compared to what I've seen, but it will be fun. THANKS AGAIN!!!
  14. Adding Video Projector

    Okay, SOLVED... The video file, with audio, does have to be a WMV file to work solely on the laptop. My desktop has a Nivida GTX 1080 card. It has more video outputs, therefore I could run a separate cable to the projector. I just have to do some little timing adjustments. My first attempt was my own singing Christmas trees sequence, the video, and all other lights (48 channels thus far). I thought I'd tackle the most difficult and work my way back. HA! Thanks for the suggestions and help. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
  15. Adding Video Projector

    Hey default, I've been thinking it's a driver or compatibility issue or something like you suggest. That's my next try. I'm going to export the video into WMV format, ship it on over to the laptop and see what happens. Thanks for the suggestions!
