  1. 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.
  2. Well if has to do with the number of views, that could be it, highest views I have is 500.
  3. What is so weird is I have 60 to 70 videos on both Youtube and Vimeo and have never had one pulled. I just dont understand the randomness of it.
  4. Yeah, all of the sequences I have converted from xlights are in the 2-3 gig range. I do have one Superstar sequence that hit 1.5 gig. Most of my LOR only sequences are in the 3 hundred to 4 hundred meg range.
  5. This whole sequence took about 2-3 minutes to save. Takes a bit to write out 5.25 gig.
  6. 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.
  7. Mike, couldnt like your post, but consider it LIKED!
  8. I have been doing that sequence for 3 years now and no one has ever pointed that out until I read this thread. Nor did I ever put the 2 together.
  9. Just saw that myself. Duluth, GA also. I have 2 choices within 2 hours and both are on weekends. I havent seen them in a few years, hopefully will get to go this year.
  10. No, you can not have S4 and S5 on the same machine, unless you are using one in something like a virtual machine.
  11. Within your preview. Click add item, add group. 2nd option down.
  12. My cmdmap.lcm file look normal to me. I have all my seqeunces in there.
  13. I can use this one. drdelong@outlook.com Thanks James!
  14. From what I thought I read, he is only going back because he cant convert his sequences very easily.
  15. 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.
  16. Converting sequences from S4 to S5 is not that hard.
  17. Have to check this one out. Thanks James! drdelong@outlook.com
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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."
