  1. Keeping People Out Of Your Yard??

    When I decorated for Halloween (long ago) I really needed a fence as there were a lot of trip hazards. Cut the 10 foot 3/4 PVC in to three 40 inch pieces. Insert into holes in cheap 1x2x8 wood strip. Held upright with rebar which slides inside the pvc. Looking back at old pictures and videos of my haunting days is getting me all sappy. This is what needed protecting. It worked well. The many guests always stayed outside the fence.

  5. Prayers for Val & Family

    So sad to hear. Val and Gary came to our gathering in St Louis and stayed at our farm house years ago. Prayers sent.
  6. 2018 Spring Sale

    There are many new items added to the sale page today. For the first time in years I was going to pass on this sale, but not anymore! Thanks Dan and LOR for this sale.
  7. Sale

    The going price for new items is used as a gauge, not what you paid for them. A brand new 16 channel is $190 this week. What are the ages of the items and are they in perfect condition?

  9. AutoFlip clipboard tool for S5

    A new version of AutoFlip has been posted with new features. This version can convert S5 clipboards to S4 and S4 Clipboards to S5 formats. This conversion works for PIXELS but will not work for regular channels or mixed pixel channels and regular. For those who are using my other pixels tools or SpEx tool (which create S4 clipboards), you will create a clipboard with the -4o ending and autoflip will make it usable in S5.
  10. Welcome back Beeiill ! The 288 are, I presume, 18 AC 16 channel controllers. There is no need to do any changes with them. When you add new pixels they will be capable of faster network speeds so a new dongle or network would be my suggestion. Keep the slower AC on their own network no matter what protocol you use for the pixels. As far as the order of your channels. I tend to think everyone has channels all out of order because we add more over time to make existing groups bigger or have mates or whatever. In S4 you can make tracks to reorganize channels into more logical groups. S5 is a whole new world which is too much to explain here. I two sentences which are probably not exactly correct. S5 attempts to free the sequences of the channel order and lets you change the preview of the prop when you need to add or remove channels. In S5 you will always see the channels arranged and grouped by the prop they control.
  11. DD05 Copy and Paste

    I was trying to paste an entire 16x50 matrix but it would only do the first string of 50. I got it now after I unset condensed view on the tree view options. Is this a feature?
  12. DD05 Copy and Paste

    Sorry if I am slow on the draw on the paste. I have been trying to paste a large block and I find the paste does not work across groups.

  15. Sequencing CCR's in SE with Channels 151-157

    The macro channels can be a great help to create some effects. You are not locked into the way the manual describes them. You can delete them or just never create them and you wont miss them. If needed you can add them later. If you are using them for any kind of matrix you should really consider moving them all together to a group instead of at the end of the 50 pixels they will control. If people are interested I can do a live meeting on this topic.
