  1. Channel Configurations

    In S5, your assigned preview holds all the channel information. To get the grid to look the same, go to sequence/grid configuration.
  2. LOR XLights Pixcon and/or Falcon

    Here is how I would decide. Watch a bunch of Christmas videos. Some you know are LOR, some that are Xlights. Then watch some where you are not sure but all of a sudden you can figure out which software it is. Which ever displays you like better, use that software. Hardware, I use Sandevices, simply because they were one of the first to come out with a DIY board. Today they all make pixels blink. Cost is where I would choose.
  3. Did a brand new preview for this year. When I added props I didn't assign channels, figured I would do this after everything was added. I open my preview and go to channel summary to start adding channels. I get 1 edited and click on the second one to edit and the editor crashes every time. I tried it 3 or 4 times with the same results every time. Here is the error.

  4. I have 64 pixels on some mini trees. For the last few years, for the ease of converting from traditional lights, I did hardware grouping of 4 pixels so in the sequence editor each tree had only 16 pixels. This year I was wanting to change them to 64 pixels and use no hardware grouping. When I convert my programming from last year, I have 16 pixels worth of data that now I need to be 64 pixels worth of data. I have been using the clipboard flipper to accomplish this and it has worked nicely. I was just thinking this would be a nice new feature. Copy 16 pixels worth of sequencing, and paste to stretch height and it would change it to 64 pixels worth of data.. A chase that lasted .5 seconds over 16 pixels would still be .5 seconds long but now chase across 64 pixels of sequencing. Another example of needing something like this. Last year my mega tree was 50 pixels high, this year I want it to be 75 pixels. It has been very time consuming to make this change. It could be easy, paste to fit - height and the sequence editor would do all the work for me. Would love to see this new feature in S5. What was that email to send suggestions to LOR?

    Thanks for the reply Matt. If you need any additional information just let me know.
  7. DD06 Views no longer working

    Uninstalled, did a registry wipe and it seems to be working now. Never had to do all that before.
  8. DD05 Copy and Paste

    Video of how painful copy and paste is. My beta days are over if no response is submitted, not sure why I should waste my time without even 1 response from anyone from LOR. Any comment would be better than silence. Almost 3 minutes to copy 1/2 second worth of sequence. Clipboard was only 3 meg.
  9. Windows 10 pro, 8 gig ram, I7 processor. This started yesterday. I can no longer choose a view. Import in my grid with 4 views and will not change to any other view. Here is a video. 5.018 LOR

    Matt, I see you replying to a lot of posts. No love this way?
  11. Keeping track of things in S5

    Views, are sort of like tracks in S5. There is a drop down above all the props in S5. CLick on that and choose add a view. After that select the props you want to add to that view. You can then re-arrange how you want them to look in that view. Hopefully that helps.
  12. DD05 Copy and Paste

    Matt, any comments here? 3 week old thread and nothing at all mentioned.
  13. DD05 Copy and Paste

    Make sure you dont have any motion effect rows in there or it will mess up a paste.

  15. S5 Show Editor

    Yes, you have to create new playback files if you make any changes. Yes, it will over write the existing files. No, you dont have to update the show editor.
