  1. Select Items

    THANKS BRIAN! Using that method worked and I was able to change the clip on all the images rather easy. Didnt realize as long as the image is selected first, group modify will work. Good to know.
  2. Select Items

    I think this has come up before. I would love a Select button where I can select certain effects. I mostly need this on images but all the different effects might be handy. I want to be able to change the "clip" on all the images in a sequence. Selecting them all at once and changing it one time sure would be handy. Thanks.
  3. Anyone come up with a way to do a morph across your whole display using a motion effect. I haven't been able to get the equivalent of a morph and was wondering if anyone else has had any success doing something like that.
  4. Playing sequences done in 5 in previous version

    S5 uses .loredit files so going back would not work.
  5. Being original.

    Yeah I still use some Holdman sequences in my display, I have a few "Fantasy Lights" sequences, Sill use some "Lights for Riley" , "Wilton Lights", "Tauton Tales", Jade and a few others. Each had a unique look to them. Christmas Lights by Coldplay that Jade shared with me back in 2010 is still one of my favorite sequences. Like Jeff said, All thanks to people sharing. So thank you sharers. You make it possible for us non-creative folks to appear creative. BTW, you helped me collect $3,500 last year for a local charity that helps out family's in need, they thank you too.
  6. Channel configuration

    Didnt know about the channel summary, good information heading into a new preview. Thanks.
  7. Being original.

    “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.” I guess that doesnt apply to sequencing and Christmas lights
  8. SS upgrade $100?

    I inch spacing. I use it for my 4 singing faces. Each face is 30x20 pixels. I put a couple of videos on it. Have a few 24x50 sequences on it. It is viewed from about 60-70 feet away, so the videos look fairly decent.
  9. SS upgrade $100?

    My matrix this year is 84x30. That is the equivalent of 50 ccr's. Therefore a 60 ccr license would be needed. I dont sequence it in SS because I have the 40 ccr license.
  10. SS upgrade $100?

    I agree. Superstar pricing is way out of range. I dont mind paying for it but the levels of pricing just dont make sense anymore. 1 matrix alone can eat up a 60 CCR license. I hope LOR sees this sooner than later.
  11. Rocky Top

    I know this will be very area specific. Anyone have a sequence for Rocky Top. Not sure why anyone would want it this year with the season Tennessee had, but I had a request. Thanks.
  12. In S5, you can open multiple sequences but they show up as tabs. All I have been able to do up to this point is switch between the tabs. Having they side by side like in S4 would be nice. Save quite a bit of clicking.
  13. Being original.

    This year is my 12th year and I have yet to do my first original sequence. I have tried many times and a blank sequence just freaks me out, I don't have a clue. If i picture a song, all there is is darkness it seems. I can tell you this, my visitors could care less whether its original or not, if it was original work they would care because they wouldn't come back it would be so awful. I like the diversity of using different peoples sequences, there are a lot of different techniques out there, not so much lately though. Mostly these days I take the purchased pixel tree sequence in to SS and adapt all the rest of my props to it. It is about original as I can get.
  14. 2017 Drone Video

    Thanks. I have a 8 by 24 foot storage room in the back of the garage. Everything for the most part gets torn down to its lowest level and stored in that room and then rebuilt every year. BTW for those who are interested, show this year is run by S5.
