    strobe light strings?

    Watching tv and wrapping lights the last few nights. I am mounting the bulbs a little less than an inch apart. This cuts the length down from 25 feet to 42 inches for each set. They wont get tangled this way.

    How to create equalizer effect on RGB nodes

    Notice the colors of the SpEx icon are green/yellow/red like the old days but updated to do quad. The EQ effect is not exclusive to smart strings. You can do it with a single regular channel if you want. Groups are good and colors better. When you are working with regular channels or dumb RGB strips you(SpEx) will use INTENSITY to denote volume of the audio file. All the types of lights we use support intensity so all can do an EQish effect of some type. In SpEx you can set the color for RBG or if a regular channel set to Red and use the red channel in your sequence. This video is old but the software is working and recently updated. You don't have to speculate Orv... try it and see. I have many sequences with EQ effect seen on regular AC channels and on dumb strips. Sorry so many videos in this thread. The second one shows the EQ effect on regular AC channels on little fountain props with only 4 channels each of plain light strings.

    Papa Assist (Utility for Papagoya)

    Seems like the time already spent talking about and looking for it has exceeded the time saved by using it.

    Papa Assist (Utility for Papagoya)

    While I never used it, my memory of its function was to space the phrases. Papagayo simply spreads out the provided words to use up ~90% of the available space. This can make it a chore to set the initial placement of each phrase. Sometime you just want some free space at the beginning so you dont have to keep shifting each phrase to the right. This can be accomplished without an external tool with some trickery. Just add a bunch of the letter A in your breakdown on the top line. Papagayo will spread out all the words when you click breakdown. Then you can edit your .pgo file to remove the letter A's. This will result in a nice amount of space at the begin of your song. The .pgo has an orderly but cryptic format but it will work. If you are interested in this trick I can make a little video about it. But to be clear, Papagayo days have come and gone. Other methods have taken its place.
  8. Last night and this morning I finished mounting 1600 pixels in their strips and jammed them into two bins for storage. Are you working on a lighting project today?

    Create VU meter using SpEx

    There was a minor release of SpEx to better support AutoFlip. A small screen glitch was fixed and improvements to clipboard compression were made. The expiration date was moved out another year.

    Preview aspect ratio

    👍👍 Thanks Matt. There will probably be more easily solved problems coming. I am a bit lost but still poking around.
  12. Is there any way to lock in or snap to the aspect ratio of the background picture? If not, I would like to make this a suggestion. I found LORinternal\sequencerlayout.xml persists the values. When I put in the bg image dimensions I was able to get the accurate view in the preview window but it was soon lost and not remembered. The easy sizing and zoom of the Preview Design is fantastic. But I was unable to find a way to get the natural aspect ratio using that file. As a work around I have added a little visual cue to the bg image . When it looks square, its close. Another weird thing I noticed is related to using multiple monitors. It would nice to be able to scale up to full size on my second monitor without dragging the corners. Double clicking docks and hides the preview window back to the main monitor.

    Sharing HandClap faces and beats.

    Thanks Orville. I posted about it a while back. I am lucky enough to have well placed trees which allow me to support props over the yard.

    LOR 4.3.28 crashes after install

    I too had many issues with this install but I was able to eventually install it. 1) Avast claimed it was potential virus. Would not allow me to mark as safe and claimed to send it for examination. 2) Later file was deemed safe and install seemed to work BUT 3) When I attempted to load control panel the install started again but said it could not find MSI in a temp location. This went on for a while while I tried to find the msi by searching and failed. 4) I did not DL install.exe again. Instead I just ran the install again from its downloaded location and it worked. 5) Post did not recall my files folder and made me navigate to it.
