  1. Here are a few of my new sequences for 2019. Enjoy!!
  2. Hello, I ran into a case where the preview window of the Motion Effect Generator does not match the preview window when I play the sequence back. In my specific example, the simple shape in the preview window of the Motion Effect Generator is shown rotated, but when I play the sequence and view it in the preview window it is not rotated. Can I assume the preview window that displays when I play the sequence back is correct? I'm currently only working on programming right now and I am not connected to any hardware to verify. Thanks for any feedback in advance.
  3. I agree. I have the same work flow and always import a grid configuration after I assign a preview to a new sequence.
  4. I thought I redrew most of my props. I can't remember if I imported anything from S4. I may have to live with it since I have way too much time invested in my 2019 preview and don't feel like re-doing it. I'll keep my eye on it and if it becomes an issue, I may try redrawing parts of my preview. Thanks for the info, Jade
  5. HI All, I've noticed some flickering lights in my Preview Window when I play a sequence. I think it may be a result of overlapping props in my preview design. Has anyone else experienced this? I can't test against hardware right now, so I don't know if the lights are actually flickering. I hope they would not actually be flickering. Note: I tried to upload my sequence but got a message stating "There was a problem processing the uploaded file. Please contact us for assistance." Thanks, Jade
  6. Hi All, I noticed when I re-imported a grid configuration into a sequence, a duplicate motion row (same name but contains no data/effects) is created. It appears the duplicate motion row is added if there is an effect in the original motion row. In the screen shot below, a duplicate "Flake_02:Effects 01" motion row was added after I re-imported the grid configuration. Even though both rows have the same name, they are not associated with one another. Maybe I shouldn't have tried to upgrade my grid configuration by re-importing an updated configuration. - Jade
  7. Thanks Jim! I didn't think about stretching the time in Sequencer. That worked and captured the entire effect. Can you think of any drawbacks to selecting an entire row for a prop when I add a SuperStar effect in a musical sequence? Seems like that would allow me to add SuperStar effects anywhere in the song. - Jade
  8. Hello, After a SuperStar effect is added to a cell in the S5 Sequencer, is there a way to go back and increase the number of cells that the effect applies to? I would like to add additional effects and/or include the entire effect (attached image shows the tail of the morph being left out). Thanks, Jade
  9. Thanks for the feedback Jim and Brian. Going forward, I'm going to keep my sequences located in their own unique folder/directory so the avi files are grouped with the parent LOREDIT file. When I create a sequence I make a lot of edits, save often and create multiple file revisions. I've just started my first sequence for 2019 and have already accumulated over 18 separate avi files. I can see where it would become unmanageable for me if the avi files for all my sequences were dumped into a single folder/directory since the avi filenames only contain a date/timestamp and do not identify the sequence name. (I didn't try yet, but maybe I can specify the avi filename??) I do realize now that the associated avi files are identified in Sequence > File References. In fact, after I moved my LOREDIT file and associated avi files, I was prompted by an appropriate warning message to update the file location. - Jade
  10. Hi All, I noticed SuperStar has created Video Clip files in my S5 Sequence folder (sample file attached). They are associated with SuperStar effects that I have inserted into the sequence grid. Do I need to keep these files organized with my LOREDIT File or can they be deleted without causing any issues? Thanks, Jade SS_20190109205022_daaf4bb2b00b4854a7ac8c30da81fa16.avi
  11. HI All, When I create a new grid view in S5, the new view is automatically placed at the bottom of the pull down list. Is there any way to change to order of grid views in the pull down menu? Thanks, Jade
  12. Alan, When the trees are configured with a Bottom Left CCW starting location I thought that the first column of the Superstar grid would be displayed as: This is probably just my misunderstanding of the software. I haven't had time to test against real hardware to see if there is a real issue. Thanks, Jade
  13. Alan, Thanks for taking a look. The part that is still bothering me is what is displayed when the first column in Superstar is selected for the prop configured with a Bottom Left CCW starting position. It just seems like the display shows a string that it is more towards the rear of the tree than the one on the left side. I may just be too detail oriented... Thanks again, Jade
  14. Alan, Thanks for the video links. Your videos have given me much more insight into the relationship between S5 and Superstar. I still, however, have a question on the Superstar grid and the starting location of a prop. I have attached a couple of screenshots from my setup to help explain my question. It seems as if the first column in the Superstar grid for Prop#1 above is not displayed on the prop correctly. I would have thought it would be showing the string associated with the starting location of the prop. I'm trying to determine if this an issue or not. Thanks for the support, - Jade Superstar Test.loredit
  15. Hi Brian, I am using S5 not S4. Will that make a difference? - Jade
  16. Hi All, Does the grid in superstar follow the starting location of a prop? Specifically, I have an RGB prop built from a “Tree 360 wedges” shape with a starting location of “Bottom Left CCW”. When I insert a superstar effect for this prop, it appears that the leftmost column of the superstar grid is the 12 o’clock position when looking down on the prop. Is there any way to associate the left most column of the superstar grid with the 9 o’clock position? Thanks, Jade
  17. I suspected that had something to do with my issues. I didn't have the props in a preview group. I had added the effect right to the prop and I guess the default arrangement/stack for that prop was used. Once I created a new group with the prop in it I was able to adjust the arrangement/stack and change how the effect is displayed. Thanks!!!
  18. Hi All: I’m trying to get a better understanding of the following results. Prop#1: Spokes prop using one of the built-in shapes. This prop is configured with 12 spokes and 4 RGB nodes per spoke. Prop#2: Boscoyo Med Spinner prop (Boscoyo DayCor Pixel Spinner 15”, downloaded using the Boscoyo Studio (online) method). After downloading the prop, I went back and deleted some of the nodes to match the layout of Prop#1 and then renumbered the nodes. Motion Effect: Bars motion effect in the right direction. Results: Prop#1 spokes spin in a clockwise direction. On Prop#2, vertical lines move to the right. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jade 2019_Spinner-Test.loredit
  19. Thanks for the reply Alan. I am still trying to decide whether or not to add a matrix in 2019. I was intrigued by the original question and starting thinking about the possible effects I might be able to create. You bring up a good point about being able to use a Superstar grid. - Jade
  20. Bump... I'm also interested in jamills706's question. Anyone have an answer? Thanks, Jade
  21. One last new sequence for the season. I jumped on The Greatest Show band wagon...
  22. I thought that might be the case. I wanted to share the idea with others. It might be a song that works well with singing faces.
  23. Awesome job Doug!!! I usually always try and sequence a new song during the holidays. After watching your video, I'm now motivated to jump on "The Greatest Show" band wagon. Looks like I have some late nights ahead of me...
  24. This is my first video of the season. I only created several new sequences for 2018. Enya's Echoes In Rain was one of them.
