  1. I found a broken wire in the relay box, all fixed now, but I did purchase a new relay just in case.
  2. A few years ago I purchased a fog machine relay box from an outfit called Creative Lighting Displays LLC. I used it to trigger a Chauvet fog machine from LOR. It worked perfectly until recently. I've inspected the connections, and possibly the relay has gone bad. I can't find any reference to the company, and figure it must be out of business. Looking for assistance in some sort of replacement. Fog machine works perfectly from its remote. I'd like to move to a DMX based system in the future, but DMX capable fog machines are expensive. Thanks!
  3. I'd love to see some other replies to this topic, as I also purchased a Pixie 2 set this year, but haven't added them to my existing LOR universe of two LOR units, and two CCRs, all several years old. I run a separate DMX universe with a separate dongle, and am pretty much out of USB ports! Cheers, Don

    DMX Color Macros?

    There are many intensities reserved for the macro channel, but I don’t think they are pre-programmed. Maybe just need to purchase one of these and experiment. ?

    DMX Color Macros?

    So would these color macros be created within the light fixture itself, rather than in SE? Or is the fixture shipped with pre-programmed macros?

    DMX Color Macros?

    I'm thinking of purchasing a Chauvet Par series LED light fixture which can run on DMX. I currently have a DMX universe in my LOR program for a three light laser, and it works very well. My question is, the Chauvet fixture has a channel reserved for "color macros". I assume this allows you to mix all three of the RGB colors to create custom colors within a single channel. How would you do this in LOR? I also assume that if the light was connected to a standard DMX control board, you would create the custom color macros on that board. Here is the manual.

  7. The controller that came with the ribbons. I use a separate DMX output from the laptop to a DMX laser. Works great, and easy to program in the sequence editor. Not looking for anything fancy from these 2 new ribbons, just solid color with no movement changing to other solid colors during the song.
  8. Just using the ribbons as background wall washers...nothing fancy. Change color on the entire ribbon a few times during the songs.
  9. Jim, What I am looking for is a method to set the entire ribbon to a particular color, then change to another color during the song. Can the Pixel editor be used in a DMX mode? I haven’t used the Pixel editor at all, just the sequence editor and superstar editor. Or can the superstar editor just be used with these Pixies? Thanks!
  10. Purchased my first Pixie 2D V3 this year. If I want to run these two ribbons in DMX, how do I set the colors and effects? I see in the manual the starting DMX address (based on unit number), but I am clueless as to how to set the other DMX numbers, for say, the entire ribbon as steady blue, red, etc.. I couldn't find any tutorials. I am licensed at the full advanced level. Thanks! Don in Barrington IL.
  11. The layout is mostly O scale. About 12 feet long and 8 feet deep. Video projection on the castle by a pico projector. Cheers!
  12. Enjoy! Using two 16 channel controllers, two CCRs, DMX 3 light laser, pico video projector, fog machine (not seen in the video), and Disney Glow with the Show IR earhats, all controlled by LOR. 2016 Show
  13. Export from SS to SE as a musical sequence or animation sequence?
  14. The LOR network has 2 LOR controllers and 2 CCRs on it. CCR1 has address 3. I did check the config in SS, and it is correct, no change in the last few years. I did add one DMX universe this year, through a separate USB dongle, and it's working fine. As noted, CCR1 seems to be working fine also.
