  1. SEC Spring Mini. (Tennessee Mini) All are invited, We have folks from all over AL, GA,FL, SC, & NC who attend. WHEN: Saturday, March 30, 2019 WHERE: Cleveland, TN (Just north of Chattanooga off of I-75)3787 Blue Springs Road in Cleveland, TN TIME: ( 9 am till 4 pm EST) We will take up $$ for lunch, usually pizza. Hasnt been much of an LOR crowd there the last year or 2. Would love to see more show up. Going to do some some training on S5 including doing some sequencing in XLights and bring it into the S5 seqeuncer. More info in the facebook group, South Eastern Mini Group ( Tenn Mini )
  2. Being able to add 10 or 15 minutes to a playing show with just a button click would be nice.
  3. I think this would be a nice feature, cant imagine a down side. When you create a new sequence you assign it a preview. The next step I always do after creating the new sequence is import a grid configuration. Just wondering if the grid configuration could be part of the new sequence window?
  4. Was this a preview you imported in from S4? My first preview I noticed some weird things like that. I totally re-draw my entire preview in S5 and all the weird things went away.
  5. Cant imagine running my display with out MIIP. Live long and prosper Bob!
  6. Would love to see Morph and Shockwave effect added to the sequencer.
  7. Looks good Bob, I like the song choice.
  8. Nice job Jade. I too had never watched the movie. After I did the sequence, I thought well I better check the movie out. I am not into musicals at all but this movie was very good. Watching Wolverine sing you would think says it all. I am also doing the song A MIllion Dreams, what a great song that is also.
  9. Anyone done any kind of sequence for this song. Someone wants to get engaged at the lights Friday night and trying to throw a song together. Anything at all will work, A one time sequence. Thanks.
  10. Stays pretty busy out in the yard. Once it slows down a bit, which typically isn't until after Christmas, the wife and I will pop a batch of popcorn, park the car in the yard and watch the lights for an hour or longer. I look forward to that every year. Besides opening night I only get to watch the lights from the windows.
  11. The sequences open up perfect for me. I have been wondering when people share version 5 sequence how it was going to work. A pleasant surprise was the layout is built into the sequence. I assumed you would need that persons preview. So once the song is linked up you can view it in the preview. Very cool.
  12. Thanks Jade! I truly enjoy your sequencing.
  13. Well this is my 13th year. I am very happy I have no video of my year. I wish I could take credit for the sequence. This was brought over from Xlights, this is the Xlights around the world sequence for this year.
  14. Great sequencing as usual Jade. Nice song choice, never heard that song before.
  15. I heard he was on the Great Light FIght, not sure if its true or not. That show has killed off a few shows already.
  16. Clipboards changed between S4 and S5, Sounds like Papagayo to LOR is outputting in S4 format, which makes sense it would be,

    4x4 decorating?

    In the early days of shared sequences, most everyone did things in 4's and 8's. First person I can remember getting away from that was Richard Holdman, he did several things in 9's. I remember always having to delete the middle channel when I used his sequences.

    4x4 decorating?

    I follow 4x4 model, started that way and never got away from it. All my props are divisible by 4, 16 big trees, 16 mid size trees, 16 candy canes, 16 strings on my mega tree, 16 spinners, 4 fans, 8 stars and so on. Even took it so far on a lot of props that the number of pixels is divisible by 4. I always figured the 4 started with how many beats per second a lot of songs are, 4 count or something like that.
  19. Thanks Bob! Love Autoflip, this thing works great.
  20. Grouping does not make them white. If you have 100 pixels on an output. If you do grouping of 100, it is turning the string into an RGB string. To LOR it would be 1 channel of red, green and blue. I used grouping a lot in the my early days of pixels to match up older sequences.
  21. Grouping at the controller level would possibly accomplish this?
  22. Well I have no idea about the virus thing, been doing this for several years now with no problem. When I was looking for a backup solution Onedrive was perfect for what I was looking for. This is hard to explain but it just works so easily. I have a folder called Onedrive on all 3 computers, it is in the user folder. In that folder I have a folder called LOR. That folder is my default location for the LOR software for all 3 computers. So in that folder is my audio folder and all the associated LOR folders. I have all 3 computers set to sync for the LOR folder. Like I said, I can add an audio file on one computers and it will automatically sync that audio file to the other computers. If I add a new sequence or change an existing sequence it will automatically sync that sequence to the other computers. If today as an example I add a new sequence and audio file from my work computer. When I get home those files will be on my home computer, I can open that sequence in LOR and the audio file will be in the default location and that sequence will play perfectly at home without making any modifications or having to do anything for that matter. I can modify my preview at work and when I look at my preview at home it will be exactly look the one I changed from work. It is the perfect solution for sequencing on multiple computers.
  23. Not running my show from the internet. Onedrive is a folder on my computer. It is also a folder on both of the other computers also. When i make a change in my onedrive folder it uploads the change to the cloud onedrive folder. When the other computers see a change in the cloud folder, it automatically syncs the onedrive folder on that computer to match. Again what is so awesome is I dont do anything it all happens automatically. If you sequence on multiple computers it cant be any easier. And the super bonus its all backed up in the cloud also.
