    S4 to S5 Conversion Issue With Prop Groups

    Alan, I was in the process of setting up my preview for you. When I went back to one of my sequences to verify the Preview Playback window wasn't working correctly it actually was working. It appears that the Preview Playback window won't work correctly unless I close the file and reopen it. When I do reopen the file it takes a little bit of time to process the sequence, but after it does the Preview Playback is back in sync with the sequencer. I verified this with some of my other sequences that I needed to convert to S5. Looks like I'm good to go for now. I really appreciate your offer to help me troubleshoot. Looks like I'll have to take a rain check. Thanks again!!

    S4 to S5 Conversion Issue With Prop Groups

    Hi Matt, The props do not have an "@" in front of the names. It is like the preview window is disconnected from the sequencer. When I double click on an effect in the sequencer the Motion Effect Generator pop-up will show the preview group and the effect; however when I play the sequence the effects will not show up in the preview window. I have done all sorts of things to fix the problem. It seems that after a lot of tweaking (saving the file multiple times, loading different grid views, changing assigned preview designs, duplicating preview groups, manually coping effects to duplicate groups, changing assigned channels, ...) the sequencer will sync back up with the preview window.
  3. I’m having a problem with motion effects assigned to my pixel prop groups when I convert S4 sequences to S5. After I convert to S5, I can see the effects in the Sequencer but they do not show up in the playback window. One example of where this occurs is in my nested stars. In S4, each segment of a nested star was a separate prop. When I created my new preview design in S5, I used the “stars nested” shape for my nested stars and didn’t need to manually create separate props for each segment. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  4. Here are a couple videos of my 2017 Christmas Display. This year I converted all my CCPs and CCBs from Sequence Editor over to Pixel Editor. Still using S4 software but looking forward to using S5 next year...
  5. One of my segments of a concentric star prop uses a portion of two CCP strings. In the Prop Definition, the Unit # is 0D, the Start Circuit is 91, the End Circuit is 150, and a Carry Over of 30 exists. What will the Unit # and Circuit assignments be for the Carry Over circuits?

    Effect Generator Question

    I'm trying to repeat the same effect with the repeat mode set to "once_fit_to_duration" in two adjacent cells. Is there any work around or way to disconnect the second cell from the first so that the effect will be repeated in the second cell? I thought that I would be able to have the effect selected and use the fade down in the first cell, but PE still treats the two cells as a single zone/time period. Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions. - Jade

    Not Your Standard Pixel Tree Configuration

    Thanks Matt. One additional question. If I resize the prop and add a couple of these to my existing preview and groups will I run into any problems when I add effects since the layout is a matrix and not a tree? - Jade
  8. I don't use a typical pixel tree configuration. I use three CCB controllers and lay out the CCBs per the attached figure. Rows 1 through 12 have 24 CCBs and row 13 (top row) has 12 CCBs. I am trying to create a similar prop in the Pixel Editor but have been unsuccessful. I was hoping not to have unused bulbs. Any suggestions?
  9. I read a previous post that stated the first string in a 360 tree is always in the rear. Can someone explain how the Starting Location settings work. Seems like it should be in the 9 o'clock position when facing the tree when the starting location is set to "Bottom Left". Also, are the strings located in a clockwise or counter clockwise direction.

    PE Preview Limits

    Just wondering if the Pixel Editor Preview has the same maximum limits on the number of fixtures and props as the Visualizer?
