    Uninstall S4 before installing S5

    No, you can not have S4 and S5 on the same machine, unless you are using one in something like a virtual machine.

    How to create a group in S5

    Windows Command

    My cmdmap.lcm file look normal to me. I have all my seqeunces in there.
  4. I can use this one. drdelong@outlook.com Thanks James!
  5. From what I thought I read, he is only going back because he cant convert his sequences very easily.
  6. Its been a while but here is the way I did it I believe. Open up your S4 sequence in S5. Once open it should look similar to the way it looked in S4. Create a new preview in S5, dont use your old stuff. Once you have the preview created, create a view that looks just like your S4 seqeunce. Create a new musical sequence with the same song, import the correct view. Copy and paste from the old sequence to the new sequence. Should be all to it.
  7. Converting sequences from S4 to S5 is not that hard.
  8. Have to check this one out. Thanks James! drdelong@outlook.com
  9. I have several videos in sequences and up to Version 5.018 were all working. They are uncompressed AVI files. I noticed they were not playing in version 5.022. When I try and choose them in the effect editor I get the error "Unable to read frames from this file." Not sure what might have changed. at ‫‮‏‬‌‍‮‬‌‍‏‍‌‪‮‫‎‭‎‪‭‎‫‍‫‭‎‪‮‭‮.‍‬‍‮‍‮‮‬‫‬‭‬‎‏‬‌‌‮‍‌‎‮‮() at ‪‭‏‍‏‬‏‬‍‭‬‭‎‭‪‍‍‎‮‬‮.Open() at LightORama.MotionEffects.EffectMovie.‫‍‏‭‍‭‫‍‍‍‌‭‍‍‌‪‮(IEffectBuffer ) DateTime=2018-07-02T13:28:27.8176975Z LORSequencer.exe Information: 0 : Closing movie effect frame grabber DateTime=2018-07-02T13:28:27.8176975Z LORSequencer.exe Error: 0 : movie effect error: System.Exception: Exception while setting up AVI video decoding - perhaps a CODEC is missing.

    DD07 Movie Effect Error

    I was able to change the frame rate and that fixed my problem. Also, compressed AVI files seem to work without changing the frame rate. Currently when I pick the path to a movie, only AVI and WMV are available. MP4 seems to be the most popular option, will that be an option anytime soon

    DD07 Movie Effect Error

    These uncompressed videos play with all the players I can find. I can not find a program vfw32 other than a dll. Some of my video files are native uncompressed video files, will I need to convert those to something else. Here is a link to one of the files I am trying to use. I installed all the codecs I could find. Here is a link to one of the files I am trying to use. https://1drv.ms/v/s!ApgRhyoQKfS8hp1NfgzXgkhWXHkVKg

    DD07 Movie Effect Error

    That is good, dont have to convert the videos anymore, now I have to find the originals. Either that or a codec for uncompressed AVI files.
  13. I thought i remember reading a post about the beta period ending 6/30/2018. Will the current version of S5 quit working at that point?
  14. Never heard Disney and cheap in the same sentence before.

    Grinch Faces Lms Pixel Matrix

    I will check this one out. drdelong@outlook.com Thanks!
  16. 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
  17. I ran last years show on it and it is even further along now. I don't see why not.
  18. Found another nice feature, themes!
  19. Users can now dock sequence windows to different positions within the main window, allowing sequences to be viewed side-by-side. Reported by users arnolddeleon and dougd. Cant figure out how to do this. Anyone gotten this new feature to work?
  20. OK, got it. Nice. Great job on the new version. Everything looking good so far. My preview is looking better than ever with the spiral 360 tree option. All my wrapped trees now look correct.

    DD05 Copy and Paste

    Thank You, Thank You. Pasting now works like before. Thanks Matt!
  22. Copy and paste slowed way down on version 5.018. In 5.016 it was very good. Not sure what changed but hopefully it wont stay at this speed. Now I wish I would have worked harder converting over last years sequences to this years layout.

    2018 Expo FOOD!

    I know you are sworn to secrecy. Will there be a new beta release or final release of S5 at the expo? BTW, Steak N Shake is the best value burger out there for sure. Good chili too.
  24. Version 4.3.26, I get an error of "maximum number 512 of props allowed" and cant add a new prop. I probably have 150 props in my current visualizer. When I edit the xml file I can see props that have long been deleted but are still in the xml file. Is there any way to fix this, just deleting the ID's at the top, those are the old ones isnt working.
