  1. I would like to see a small Matrix for the mouth only. Think of the possibilities. Dennis
  2. That looks closer to what I want. Yes, send me the file. want to see the difference. I know that limits my opinions, but these use to be dumb RGB but the controllers are bad, so it was easy and cheaper to convert them to pixels. Right now they work as pixels but would like to have them work as 5 pixels in unison, just like having 5 dumb RGB LED's in each star. Having them work individually you cannot see the effects as the pixels are inside the stars and the blending of the colors is hard to see. Thanks
  3. Matt: I did that in the 2018 display. After converting the stars and tried to use the Motion Effects, the preview Motions window looks like 5 strings of 10 stars randomly placed in the motion view window. The Display Preview Window is not affected by this. Dennis
  4. I have 10 Coro Stars that for several years as dumb DMX controllers, each Star had a three channel controller and all chained together that made 30 channels. The controllers started to fail and decided to convert them to Pixels. Installed 5 pixels per Star and reconfigured the Stars to pixels with 5 pixels per Star. This worked out great and the Stars look good in the preview window. Now my problem is if looking at it in the Motion window, instead of 10 Stars I get 50 Stars in groups of 10 in different places in the Motion Window. I would like to have 10 Stars with a pixel in each point or each Star with 5 pixels configured as one unit, not 5 pixels working independent. Do I have to delete theses Stars as they where originally used as DMX, and make new ones as pixels. If so what prop should be used.
  5. I have seen that also. Only do Saves.
  6. Does the bad string have a module on the string before the LED you tested? You can have one or two modules per string, which do you have? The module may be bad.
  7. Used S5 this year for the first time. Had to learn a lot in 1 month. Last year used Xlights . Same sequences and I can say that S5 did a much better job on the sequences. Also was 100% wireless IP's. Love both changes.
  8. Brian is right, S5 and Superstar work well together in breaking up the elements. Trick I just learned is bring a blank element into Superstar and open one of your existing Superstar files for this song and see what you get to work on that element. I have imported my 4 Circles.sup file into my 4 arches and have a sequence good enough to make changes with and not have to start clean each time. Just a thought
  9. Yes, it works fine on the programming computer. What kind of programs did you have to install after the reset? I will live with using the Cloud this year. it is not that big of problem. You could lose all your power.
  10. OK, understand about the E1.31 setup. Been working with someone on the Audio issue. He says you need to use the X86 Media Player, this seem to be an issue on the show computer. Yes I have the X86 media player, but I cannot assign it to play the audio, it goes back to Groove. We tried several times and Win 10 just will not let X86 media player to come up. I can just by clicking on the MPlayer file but that's it. I am stumped. BTW: we used Teamplayer so he could see what is going on.
  11. 1. In setting up my E1.31 channels assignments on one of my props. I have an overflow of 90 channels, but no way in the setup to assign them to another universe. How do you add and overflow is the prop setup? 2. Using 2 computers with S5, one computer does all the sequencing and have all my files in Dropbox, can see them on computer 2, which will run my show, but for some reason get a error that the audio file cannot be found trying to run the show. Checked that the folders are there and everything looks OK. Does S5 support a cloud folder?
  12. Take your transmitter inside and let it cool down to room temperature and try it again. Had a EDM transmitter that did like temps about 90 degrees, but worked well for many seasons, not in late summer or early fall.
  13. What part of Tennessee do you live? I have built many years ago and maybe could spot what is happening.
  14. Same here, Val & Gray was one of my first and favorite people suppliers many years ago. Sad to hear this news.
  15. Its apparent you did not read the manual closely. A CCR is a 50 pixel device, but LOR has the controller set for 157 channels. The first 150 are the pixels and the 7 remaining are the macro commands. They are assigned to that device and cannot be used to control another device unless you want some funky lighting. i have used CCR's since 2008 and understand how to make them work either in LOR or DMX. Read page 7 again in the CR150D manual.
