    Where to find Preview file

    Thanks Matt
  2. I would like to be able to have my same preview that I have created in the Pixel editor and copy it to another computer so that I can continue to sequence in the evenings while my show is running. I am not sure where to look for the file or files to copy to install in my other computer. I really don't want to have to redraw my display again if I don't have to. Can someone direct me to where to find this or at least tell me if it's possible to do? Thanks .....
  3. I figured it out .....
  4. I need a little help ..... I have purchased a CCR II cosmic color ribbon (2 ribbons) and the Pixie 2 controller. I want to use this controller and CCR by itself for right now. I have named the controller ID as 0F because I will eventually put it into the show with the rest of my controllers the last controller I added was for a pixel tree 8 channel and it took ID's 7 - 0E. I have set up in the network preferences for this controller and said it was Regular LOR network and enhance speed.I am using the red USB adapter. I am able to see the controller in the hardware utility and I can turn on the lights on the ribbons using the HU. I have opened the Pixel editor and made 2 props (1 for each Ribbon), not sure if that is the correct thing to do or not. In the prop section, I chose unconnected line 50 nodes and 1 segment. Again not sure if this is correct. I created a test sequence and added each prop (ribbon 1 and ribbon 2). I selected the color wash effect and added it into the sequence and pressed start. One of the ribbons lit up but the other did not. I am not sure what I have done wrong or what I may have missed. Any help is greatly appreciated. Alan Jones
  5. Hello, I am a long time LOR user that has just acquired a new Pixel Tree which uses the Pixie 8 controller. I bought it through the LOR sale and have now received it, Have it set up and usable. I am way behind and am trying to get some sequencing done just to get started. I have quite a few songs sequenced from previous years that I would just like to add some pixel sequences to. I have watched the LOR tutorial on how to use the Pixel Editor and have a basic understanding on how to do the sequencing and I am currently working to get some done. I was wondering if anyone here had any sequencing done already to any of the songs in my list that you might be willing to share just to help me get started. Please see my list of sequences below. If you are willing and able to help, Please send to my email address at DaddyALJ@aol.com Thanks in advance for any thing you might have to offer. Here is what I have now that I want to add the pixel tree to. Again the pixel tree that I bought is the 6.5 foot with the pixie 8 controller. Amazing Grace - Techno version Carol of the Bells - Monique Danielles Carol of the Bells - David Foster Carpenters Medley - Carpenters Christmas Can Can - Straight No Chaser Christmas Eve (Sarajevo) - TSO Christmas Vacation - Mavis Staples Deck The Halls - Mannheim steam Roller Decorations - Bob Rivers Do you want to build a snowman - Frozen Hot Chocolate - Polar Express Jingle Bells - Kay Thompson & Michael W. smith Jingle Bells - Denve Mile High Orchestra (DMHO) Linus and Lucy - Guaraldi Nut Rocker - TSO Pirates of the Caribbean Polar Express Reflections of Earth - Disney Sandstorm - Darude Santa Coming to Town - Point of Grace The Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Andy Williams White Christmas - Drifters Winter Wonderland Wish Lizst - TSO Wizards of Winter - TSO Why Couldn't it Be Christmas - Bianca Ryan

    You all were great ! Thanks again for all of the help. I was feeling pretty dejected there for a while. Now I feel great and realize what work I have to do to get somewhat caught up to start playing music next Thursday. I will think of you all when the lights are on. It is so nice to know there is help here when you jump off the deep end and try to learn to swim!!! I will make a spread sheet for sure. Thanks for the example and something to follow. You must know me better than I thought when you said I would forget what I did today when next year come around! I have a really good memory ...... it's just short Have a great day! Alan Jones

    ***** UPDATE***** Ok, After all of your great help, I went back to the Pixel editor and created a new sequence, selected the control lights, selected the butterfly effect and just added about 30 seconds worth and hit play. Lights on the tree came on! That's a big win so far ! Now I have to find out how to add to my existing sequences....... Thanks for all of the help from the both of you

    I went back to the network preferences tab and I have Aux A set to enhanced network Comm 4 500.0K LOR fastest. When I went in to look, it said port (none) I know I had set that earlier today , but I set it to comm 4 again. There is the option to export this from this page, should I? and where would I export it to? Options are Pixel editor and Sequencer editor. Is one better than the other? pretty igorant so far about the pixel editor.....

    I think I have the same settings as you do here. One thing on my settings that is not on yours is where it asks about the sequence method.

    Yes I do have the red High Speed adapter for the pixel tree network. The new Pixel tree is the only thing on that network.

    HELP! I have received my new Pixiel tree, I have it set up and connected. Now the questions begin ..... I have tried to add the second network , (Aux A) and it has been assigned to comm port #4. I am not sure what to do about the Unit ID of the Pixie 8 controller. It came set up as Unit 01. I am not surre if I leave it as Unit 01 since it will be on a seperate network or do I need to change the unit ID to the next number in the number of LOR controllers I already have. If that is the case, it would then be Unit 07. I am able to see it in the Hardwre Utility when I look under Comm 4 and it shows up as "found one unit - 01 Pixie 8 Ver 1.03". I get a pop up window that asks me if that is the comm port that I will use to run my LOR. I am able to test the lights from the hardware utility. I tried to change the unit ID with the dip switches inside the controller to reflect Unit 07, but that does not change what the hardware utility says that it finds. I have set up a preview of my display and defined my props in the pixel editor. Here is a screenshot of how I set up the pixel tree. If this doesn't look right, Please advise!! I have tried to open a sequence (one that was already completed) in the pixel editor and then I tried to add a random effect just to see if it would light up the tree. I clicked on save intensity data. It did NOT lght up the tree. I tried to open the sequencer editor and run the same sequence na the the bootom 5 pixels lit up in different colors on some of the strings. This kept going well past wher I had tried to add an effect into the sequence so I am pretty sure it was not seeing whatI had added in the pixel editor. Just for clairification, The Pixel tree is the only thing plugged into the comm ports. I really do not know what to do to proceed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am happy to visit via telephone if someone would like to do that.
