  1. I use many motion effect favorites in my S5 (v.5.2.2). I have just had a very strange happening. I use sub-directories in my motion effects favorites in order to maintain some semblance of order. The sub-directories are based on major props such as my signs, Mega Tree, Wreaths, etc. Just now, I lost one of my sub-directory listings. It has completely disappeared. The "Mega Tree" sub-directory, which holds all of the specialized motion effects for that prop has completely disappeared from the listing. HELP!!!!! Without that listing, I can't access, directly, any of those motion effects from the "Favorite Effects" listing. I have tried exiting the program and then starting back up. It didn't help. Here is some additional information: 1. The "Mega Tree" sub-directory and all of it's motion effects show up in the "Light-O-Rama > Common Date > LOR Favorites.xml" file, so at least the favorites have not been lost. 2. The current "Mega Tree" effects show up in the motion effects window. The problem is that I can't access the listing from the favorites listing in the motion effects generator and therefore can't modify or add any effects to the Mega Tree. Any ideas?
  2. Thanks for the response. I think that is great. I guess that I am not very observant. Jim
  3. I think I have missed something. In the LOR Tray, what is "Show Player Memory Restarts". I have searched this forum and can find nothing on it. What does this setting do? Thanks. Jim
  4. Report Number: JMW-S5_009Module: SESoftware Version: 5.0.18 PRO (Beta)OS Version: Windows 10 x 64Description: In SE, right click on a motion effect row and select Motion Effect Properties. In previous releases, the prop would show in the large black area in the lower right of the dialog box when you select "Apply effects in the row to a rectangular subset of pixels in the prop or group". This was an aid in selecting the area you wanted. In v5.0.18, the prop does not show at all.Repeatability: Happens every time and in all of my sequences.Hardware Used: N/A (I think).
  5. Thanks Matt. It sure would be nice to have a simple fill effect. Jim
  6. Does anyone know how to do a simple fill in a motion effect row? I have a custom prop, a wreath with 5 concentric rings and progressively fewer nodes on each ring. I want to be able to a simple fill (which would look like a spiral out or in), running from node 1 to node 128 or node 128 to node 1. I would also like to be able to use any of the other effects to "color" this fill. I know how to do this on a linear prop, such as an arch, but I can't figure out how to do it on a circular object. Jim
  7. Thanks for the reference. I agree. I am using 5.0.16 and, as you do, I use it year-around for landscape purposes. I guess that we will just have to go dark for a couple of days. Of course that means that we can't work on sequencing either. Jim
  8. Jim: Where did you see that announcement from Mike? I can't find it. Jim
  9. In the past we were able to add a flood prop to the preview. In S5, I do not see that capability. Either I am missing something or it is gone. If it is gone, then we need to get it back. I need to be able to define a RGBW flood, yes a red, green, blue, white flood. Jim
  10. Matt: Thanks for the reply. No. I haven't got my CCRs working yet. I will send you a sequence later today. Jim
  11. I am and control lights is on. Everything else works fine, except the 1 converted CCR. LOR: Do you have any suggestions/comments?
  12. I can do CCR sequencing, in S5, using my old props with no problem. I wish to continue that and have the problem discussed above.
  13. Yesterday when I wrote the above, I got distracted and didn't finish. In addition to the question about the macro channels, I have another more sever problems. The main problem is that the new CCR arch will not light. The system will not control these CCRs at all. Everything works when I use an older version of the sequence, but the new one will not control the lights. It shows on the visualizer just fine, but no lights. What might the problem be and how do I fix it. Jim
  14. I know that the LOR developers are working on fixing the visualizer so that it will interpret the CCR macro commands. This is not about that, at least directly. My CCR set up has been working since 2009 - the days of the animator. Through all of the software conversions they have become a mess; and the conversion to S5 (which I really like) left the channel makeup in a worse mess. Therefore, I decided to remake my 10 CCR arches from scratch. Using a new version of my preview design, I made a new CCR arch to replace the old one. However, when I appended the prop to a view and added channel level to it there was something that I need missing - the macro channels. So, my question is - how do I make a new CCR prop with macro channels attached to the prop? Jim
  15. I am just interested in where those current channel numbers come from and to see what props they are attached to. Also, if they are not needed, I would like to be able to delete the channels. I want to be able to clean up all of the unneeded stuff in the sequences. Jim
