  1. I had a similar problem to yours. I have one matrix that I run a background animation sequence on. All my other props are run by musical sequences. I used a preview for them all that was called entire yard and contained ALL. props. The sequences would run fine separately, but when I split them and ran the one as a background and the others as musical programs my matrix went crazy. I fixed it by creating a separate preview for the prop in the background animation and "compiling" i.e. creating the play files using it. I created 2 second preview for the props in my musical sequence. It fixed everything. It appears that even though a given prop is not used ( such as my matrix ) LOR is still sending commands to it. When commands from both get sent it messes things up.
  2. I can't imagine how frustrated you must be. I assume you have a help desk ticket open and hopefully matt will get involved. If you think it would be of any value to you, send me a copy of your sequence and I would be happy to try it on my running system and see if any errors show up here that could shed any light on the problem. email is stevehoyt@comcast.net
  3. the verifier is broken as far as we all can tell. It hasn't been updated to the current levels. I would ignore it completely for now. You should be able to diagnose any errors you are having by other means. Sorry I assumed you were having other issues besides it, as you mentioned show on demand not working.
  4. When you built your show using the show editor, after you hit the + sign to add a sequence to it, did you select S5 sequences in the drop down menu on the lower right after the file name box?
  5. I only use show on demand here for testing and the scheduler for overnight shows. I am on 5.3.6 and it is ok at this level. You say you tried show and demand and it failed. Can you be specific about the error you got. Did you use the show editor to put the loredit file in the show?
  6. yes you can. Have you tried grouping them? one way i just tested define arch group as horizontal stack align bottoms. then use the scanner effect ion the group. give it a try
  7. I have 4 arches of 50 pixels each. I set effects on them individually sometimes, and have a group defined that has all 4 in them. One way I get chases on them is using blended bars using 2 colors. The chases look great. Also don't forget that black is a color. So if you want chase of one color only chose the color as your first color and black as the second. Steve
  8. i haven't had any major issues with 5.3.6 so far. There appears to be issues with 5.3.10 for a number of people. If the show got built using the "show on demand" from the control panel but the music did not play , I'd open the sequence in the sequence editor and check that all file references are good. Sorry I can't be of more help. I completely avoid simple show builder, hub etc. Just use the show editor here and control panel and have no issues
  9. Also be sure to have use compressed sequences selected in the control panel i believe
  10. for what it is worth I am running 5.3.6 no superstar programming just sequence editor and about 60 props and 5000 RGB bulbs. All running on LOR Enhanced networks As long as I don't make any changes to a sequence or the preview the play files get created once and that's it. I run the show every night and and they all ( about 10 songs 30 minutes) load in a matter of seconds. 5.3.6 has been stable for me
  11. you might try bypassing the hub and just build a show and start it using show on demand. Open the control panel window when you do this and see what messages you get. They may lead you on to something. That is what I am doing at 5.3.6 and all is well
  12. this whole process is still confusing to me and doesn't always work as I would like to. I have talked to Matt about it. That said I'll make a few comments which might help you. In your first pic you have a preview 2010 Renamed channel...... In the second and 3rd pics the preview is LOR generated .... I am not sure exactly what you are doing but what has worked the best for me but granted doesn't always give me what I want is. Save the view you have built using the export function as discussed above. Load the new sequence where you get the LOR generated preview. Change the preview to the one you want in pic 1. Then import your views. Some props may get archived in the process and need to be added. If you get items cross hatched like you have they can be fixed by right clicking on the item name and choosing "add/modify motion effect rows". maybe this will help you get closer to what you need PS I just noticed you have a license for advanced. You might check if you have the correct license for what you are configuring...any pixels?
  13. mike This is the online web page I use for help for 5.x.x. it has a lot of good info. .http://www.lightorama.com/help/ Paul If you want save all your views you can do that using "grid configuration" the last in the list under the sequence option in the toolbar. Channels are done as Phil mentions
  14. i don't know anything about subsequences, but have you tried creating a show with only your subsequences in it and then running the show to "compile" them. This has been discussed in a number of other threads, You can then point your subsequence add to the subdirectory /LORinternal/Playback/L where they get saved. They are saved as lms and las files there. Maybe that would get you running. Just a guess
  15. i had problems with random colors on one of my pixies when I had accidentally left macros configured and had channels starting at 150 in my sequence. Just something else for you to check. Who knows
