  1. 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.

    Man that's awesome!!! I was just feeling good about my 1st year.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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. 

  5. 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. 

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. All of sequencing is done on a onedrive folder. My default LOR folder is my onedrive folder on my computer at work, my computer at home and my show computer. I do anything in those 3 places, within minutes it shows up on all the other computers. Cant imagine sequencing any other way. It works perfect. Best part is I dont have to do anything.

  9. Just finished porting over the Greatest Show from the Xlights around the world sequence. Wasn't easy but finally got it done. I ended up with a 5.25 gig sequence and it plays in the preview just fine. Will be interesting to see how it looks on the actual display. Here is what the sequence looks like in the editor and I also captured a video of the preview itself.
