  1. to add the tree, these steps are quick option 1) in the preview editor, a) select Add a new prop and give it a name, e,g, pixel_tree_one b) for the type of prop, select tree 180/270/360 wedges depending on your tree is setup c) configure the number of strings, pixels and folds. For example, 16, 100 and 0 or 8, 50 and 1 or ... d) be sure to check that RGB is selected and your initial channel is set. For a tree, just leaving channel per string is perfect and it will number each of the string as consecutive channels e) also, be sure to select add at least 1 (or 2) motion effect rows f) Save the prop and preview 2) Add the new prop to your sequence a) If not shown, select add items to view b) select "pixel_tree_one" 3) add a motion effect a) select either effect row 01 or 02 depending on what you added b) select a set of cells. - At least a dozen or so to start. One cell is not enough to see the effect and in some cases, a whole row is too many as it will set the speed based on the selected size c) press Shift a (or select motion effects from the menu) 4) play with effects a) you can now select different effects from the menu and get a quick review, see what it does. b) if it doesnt seem to do anything, check if once at speed is check and switch this to repeat (at least when playing) 5) save your changes and play as normal and your tree should play
  2. isn't software grand. so many things it can do if you just know where. I had to zoom into see it, but it was pretty much what i was looking for and removed any ambiguity.
  3. Matt, i know a bit off topic, but it would sure be handy to be able to click on a link (like for custom props) and see the pixel order of the standard ones. It would make cases like this a lot more obvious. Its also not easy to tell which pixel has the 1 on a star (it is the end or the first on the side).
  4. I looked through the comments to see if that was clarified but must have missed it. It was kind of what i thought, but if you are doing screen sharing than that might be hard to see on a mobile device. I think the question I was asking was if the intent is that you would be demonstrating and we would be following along doing the same thing at the same time. A great way to learn since it is so much easier to remember having done it yourself than watch someone do it....
  5. When you say 2 computers, i assume 2 displays connected to 1 computer would also work, one to watch via Zoom and one to sequence on.
  6. got mine during last years spring sale but they don't even have any wire in stock on non sale prices. i hope they do get some by summer.
  7. hi, been awhile since this was posted, but would like a copy if you still have one to share rgnikula@ msn.com I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share
  8. I only see this when doing a play after making changes to the preview. Time varies on the complexity of the preview. i assume that arrangement resolution settings on the effects windows when using the preview arrangement also plays in here. Do you by chance have that set to a high setting?
  9. there is a superstar feature to do it (more $$) - but with S5 and motion effects only, I am not aware of any "easy" way. Just using a picture tool is not going to get what you want. But there a lot of features that someone else will recommend.
  10. The key is the number of circuits, which you need to set to the number your pixie supports, 300 (3 * pixels per string) you can also let LOR do the math by setting Enter channel number for first row with autonumber but you have to not de-select separate id for each string (or else it will start over with each nest of lights) You will end up with the same pixel assignment as in the image above.
  11. in your screen shot, you are setting up with DMX, but in original post, you said without DMX. If you want to use a PIXIE with 100 lights, you should set the type to LOR and the max circuit to 300 (100 3 channel pixels). But there are various ways to do it.
  12. don't see the image and the link you sent is just a link to a google drive (which when clicked shows me my google drive). this is what you should have, notice how the right side defines the start and end by nest of star https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMdz1Lrq_P5C7OwQ_RM7v58-8s5F6ANvZXuEPtuPsJeGFwOhIHm3OAi8zPFc8fq4g
  13. added a 2nd video for a similar design. I originally was thinking of 2 circle props but went for a bit of variety
  14. Agree with the above, you can include a simple screen shot to help. If you using the nested star prop, than pay attention to the network configuration on the right of the definition page. You have to match the starting pixels and configuration. Also, make sure your controller is set to 100 pixels per channel.
  15. i added pixels last year and started with the LOR package and added some additional pixels. This year I got braver and bought my pixels from a 3rd party and got piece parts for the controller. S5 motion effects are pretty good if you just want to animate a tree or pixels, but i was surprised how much more thought had to go into pixels. 2 16 channels controllers only make you think about 32 things. I basic pixel tree is 400 lights, all with an infinite amount of colors to choose from.
