  1. Randy Are they defined as traditional?

    Same with me Anthony. I submitted a trouble ticket. I also sent an email to matt expressing my concerns this morning. It has been just about 3 weeks that I have been unable to do anything. I am starting to get a bit concerned at this point as I am dependent on V5. It was my choice of course, but I am no less worried. Steve

    Good Morning Matt While not in dire straits such as anthony is, I can no longer convert my V4 sequences, nor can I edit them as I am seeing the a similar problem. I assumed I needed to wait until the next Beta version was released and things would be fixed. Should I also open a ticket in order to get by my current issues resolved? Thanks Steve

    It sounds like the same problem I am having. I try to append props and they come up hashed out too and are unusable. I have another post on here about it. Steve
  5. Default This has me stopped dead in the water. I have had to stop all testing for now. For me, as it showed up new with version 5.0.8, I assume it is a regression of some sort. My uneducated guess is that is a result of the new "pixel editor" view that gets created. In addition, I have run into the "save file issue" which I reported to Matt along with someone else. I know Matt has said the save file problem is fixed with the next release and have my fingers crossed that this will be too. I could spend time looking for a workaround but at this point don't feel like it is time well spent. For now I am out in the backyard building props with high hopes for the next release of the beta. Steve
  6. Matt Just wondering if you had a chance to look at this?. It has me stopped dead in the water at the moment. Thanks Steve
  7. Can't tell which font is being used

    Count me in too on that....perhaps just have a background of grey for the selected font. Also i’d Like the scroll wheel to work on the list, using the arrows on the top and bottom is slow ...this may be a windows issue not sure.
  8. Enhancement Request

    If I remember correctly the new view was there in earlier versions. Someone from light-rama requested the change to the way it is. The change is mentioned in earlier release notes. I personally preferred the old way you suggest cubs rule.
  9. Matt Below is a better description of what I am seeing. I am not using superstar. I am just trying to import a S4 sequence that had a couple PE props in it last year. Up until 5.0.0.8 I was able to do this. After importing, I used the append command to add the new RGB props that I am adding this year. All was well. As of the latest version, where a new view is created called "Pixel editor", I now am unable to append my matrix. It appears in the view but has a black background with cross hatching in it. It can not be programmed. I am able to append my 2 additional Pixel trees without any issue.
  10. S5 Enhancement - Conversion Issue

    Good Morning it looks like we have 2 different problems. I am not using superstar. I am just trying to import a S4 sequence that had a couple PE props in it last year. Up until 5.0.0.8 I was able to do this. After importing, I used the append command to add the new RGB props that I am adding this year. All was well. As of the latest version, where a new view is created called "Pixel editor", I now am unable to append my matrix. It appears in the view but has a black background with cross hatching in it. It can not be programmed. I am able to append my 2 additional Pixel trees without any issue. I assume Matt got my report and is checking into it. Thanks for your reply.
  11. S5 Enhancement - Conversion Issue

    James or Default I have run into a problem where I can no longer get my matrix to work since upgrading to 5.0.8. If I try an append prop the it shows up in the view but is unusable. Just curious what option you are using when you mention converting above.
  12. I see the two colors when the mode has been switched to Start/End colors. I haven't played with it much yet. Try checking your mode setting next to the palette star, maybe it got changed by mistake. Steve
  13. I have read in the various release notes that the conversion has been redone a bit. I tried it on a sequence that I had never done before. As my Matrix was not part of my last years display, in the past I always did an append to get it into my view. When I do an append now, it shows up in the view, but the row is cross hatched out and can't be modified. Any idea what is wrong?
  14. 2 minor issues

    Hi I have 2 minor bugs to report and a couple new more serious ones which I will describe in other posts separately. Minor issues may have been in 5.0.6 too but am seeing them in 5.0.8. 1) When starting to play a sequence, after it reaches the end of the visible window for first time the time bar above does not change. The second time it gets to the end it "syncs" ok and the current time is displayed. 2) When I bring up the effect editor the colors in the default palette aren't right. I have a white box where the red box should be. If I reload the default palette it is ok. Sometimes it will do the same thing again sometimes not.
  15. Animations

    if you like the Pixel Editor and are willing to use the beta software you can create some interesting effects to get started. While not "animations" per se I have been able to construct some very cool stuff for my matrix. I have also created animations using GIFS off the internet, but it does take some time and a lot of times requires editing with a pixel editor. My 2 cents.
