  1. I know when we setup a prop in preview manager we can set the one setting to "pixel curve" which adjust (I'm assuming) the brightness, gamma and so on of the pixel output ((please correct me if I'm wrong) The issue I'm having with it is it looks GREAT with the feature on during most of my sequence but a few parts of my song i use darker videos like the scene from Christmas Vacation at night and dancing Bruno Mars scenes and they are really really dark with this feature on, If i turn the setting off then the night time videos look great but then the rest of the normal videos like "Trolls" dancing look a little washed out. Is there anyway to make adjustments to these videos in LOR S5 in the sequence? thanks!
  2. so I want to do LED screens in my windows with nets and nodes but feel the resolution obviously won't be that great to play video on and then I came across these P10 LED panels https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Outdoor-P10-rgb-SMD-3in1-full-color-LED-module-Scan-Mode-1-4-screen-unit-board/701799_32601471511.html?spm=2114.12010608.0.0.1c620e56b49xpU does anyone know if and how I can integrate this into S4/5 to run sequences on these panels? thanks! I searched around a little but there are very different answers and no definitive answer
  3. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I have the OLS once in one of my pixie controller boxes for when i had to power inject a ton of [Foul Language Used], they work great. I don't know why i didn't think of those on the screen i just but, ill use on my next one, a lot easier then all the tiny screw from the distro8's i bought and maybe this to run all the grounds to - https://www.amazon.com/Terminal-Ground-Distribution-Block-Kit/dp/B00X326A1K/ref=pd_sim_263_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00X326A1K&pd_rd_r=TPEJG5C9SQ251DRC6H70&pd_rd_w=dcs2T&pd_rd_wg=4DtDJ&psc=1&refRID=TPEJG5C9SQ251DRC6H70
  4. right now I'm only pushing the 1 panel so its 162 universes, I'm running straight out of my laptop (powerful year old win10 64 bit) to a Netgear 10/100/1000 router to the BBB. Maybe using 2 BBB's for the one 54 panel setup would help? plus LOR reads as 32bit, can that be an issue too that I'm running 32bit on a 64bit OS? I doubt it but i did just notice that
  5. Thank you anyway, you're always a big help and i appreciate you replying right away! Maybe someone else can chime in on converting more easily for LOR to play videos and best file sizes do LOR doesn't choke on them
  6. anything you recommend on the PC end, i use a Mac mainly but am obvioulsy using a pc for LOR. Also, have you found an easier way to get a video into LOR? Other programs make it so simple to download any file and drop it in, In LOR though I have to rip the video lets say a small dance clip from youtube, then use a converter to get it to AVI format because none of the downloaders download in AVI, then drag it into V-Dub to convert it once again into the AVI raw format that LOR accepts. Seems like a lot vs everyone just allowing you to drop in most of the popular formats. Im willing to pay for the software but it seems like converting 1 or 2 too many times then whats really needed

    always good to have extra! I order extra especially when paying a lot for shipping like from Ray Wu stuff in China, I ordered i think like 6 extra p10's just because. Now if i could just get the image to look smooth, its driving me crazy!! The image keeps breaking up on me as stuff scrolls or videos play. I can't seem to get this issue fixed. Even running a pattern like "butterfly" in LOR (or xlights) causes lines to break up and distortion
  8. just an fyi, im running core i5 2.6, 12gb ram, 512gb ssd, only a few years old running 64bit win10 education
  9. I haven't been able to try this in S4 and only use S5 now. S5 ran flawlessly all month long running my show so first off thank you!!!! Now to the issue i am having, Next year i am doing 2 big P10 matrix screens, roughly 56 panels each taking up 336 DMX universes. I add this all to my S5 profile for the house and now S5 is not even usable, if i open effects manager the entire program just locks up and i have to force quit. Can LOR not handle this? I did try adding the same in other companies software and it ran perfect, it was just S5 i am having the issue in and i really don't want to start programming in another software just to add screens.
  10. What size is the saved sequence after you added these movies? 5MB What size are the movie clips, ie. file size? screen size? Screen resolution? (720, 1040) anywhere from 10k to 10mb at 150 pixels by 110 roughly What is speed, age and memory of the pc being used? core i5 2.6, 12gb ram, 512gb ssd, only a few years old running 64bit win10 education How long are the clips? time? a few seconds each, 1 minute tops How many clips? just adding one takes forever on a clean slate Total size of all the clips together? irrelevant being only 1 kills LOR speed What prop are you trying to play these videos on? resolution of prop? matrix, mega tree? etc? P10 panel matrix, 54 panels, 162 DMX universes Have you trimmed the clips to be the smallest size they can be? ie. reduce the screen size - yes they are trimmed but not too crazy being I don't want them to look like crap on the screen or its pointless all this can be done easily in other programs but I want to use LOR being all my stuff was already programmed in there and im just adding video to existing sequences
  11. I started getting into adding movie clips to my sequences and everything you add causes S5 to get more and more slow to the point where its barely usable. I added like 1 minute or so worth of clips and now it takes forever , up to 5 minutes to open up the sequence or edit anything
  12. ill add the info but honestly just adding a 54 panel p10 matrix to LOR makes it slow to a halt before I even add video

    Even S4 was killing me trying video the other day on another machine, they need to get up to speed I feel to catch up with software I spend hundreds on and cant successfully add P10 video content
  14. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    the bugs right now are mainly in LOR, I hope they start working on the fixes soon
  15. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    thats a great idea, I may run it for 4th too to test. I did that last year once I finished all my window frames, I threw them up with red/white/blue patterns just to test
  16. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    same caniac, I proved it works now and I started working on my sequences, once I figure out if I can mount these on my windows safely then I will be doing a second 54 panel screen so my 2 second floor windows are screens for christmas 2018, I cant wait till it gets warmer so I can get up there and figure it all out. the panel probably weighs about 40-50 pounds so I may hire a contractor to help me out with his knowledge

    the Beagle bone (I couldn't use a Pi) is mounted with a mount that Boscoyo makes - https://www.boscoyostudio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=36_52_39&products_id=78 The distros fit pet on the existing holes of the panels so I used one of the panel holes and screw to screw it right to the panel
  18. I just timed opening up a sequence, Its a 6 minute song I programmed last year, usually opens in a few seconds, now I added a few video clips to go along with the sequence and now after timing it it took literally 2 minutes for the sequence to be usable after opening it. every time I do an edit it locks up for another 2 minutes
  19. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I was thinking if something went wrong with the power supply and it sends out a high voltage at least the panels are protected. I ran all my panels to a distro and then only 4 wires to the p/s https://www.dropbox.com/s/2oi4baogtb05dxy/IMG_0614.JPG?dl=0

    Caniac, in k6's video for his power distribution he's running a "rig runner 4012" vs falcons distro boxes to protect the panels but the rig runner model is over $100
  21. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I like the rig runner you're using, I just looked it up for my second display, too bad its crazy expensive, lol
  22. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I did fused distros to be safe, I purchased and used 4 of these for my setup - https://www.crockettfantasyoflights.com/product/presale-cfol-distro-8/
  23. So im changing my design a little bit for next year and no longer am using my LEDs on my top windows, is deleting the prop from the preview manager the best way to get it out of the sequences or do i need to go into each sequence also and erase all the data programmed to those windows? thanks!

    looks great, glad to see yours lags too at times and its not just mine. im already programming for next year, it looks awesome heres 1 video, im upstairs shooting out my window so the lines you see are the window screen - this is the other video recording the animation in LOR preview with more stuff -
