  1. When using the superstar auto sequence feature it will put each face element on it's own row. As long as you haven't moved the effects around, you can select a row and then use "group modify" to change the face element in each row. Is that the kind of thing you are looking for?
  2. Yes, that bug was in the Sequencer and that got fixed too.
  3. What Grinch said is correct. That is the only change since the release of 5.3.14
  4. After click on "Add Item" in Preview design, the second option in the list is to make a group. Make a group that contains your 16 strings on your roof. In the group, define the Arrangement to be one of the horizontal stack choices, or vertical stack. Then do "insert superstar effect" on the group and you will see the entire group in superstar. Note that you can also do groups of groups. And by doing combinations of vertical or horizontal stack you can get the sequencing grid to appear however you want in superstar. It will also help to view the tutorial on making Previews for smart pixels. Go to the lightorama main page, click on Support, then click on "Tutorials and PDFs", the second tutorial is titled "Sequencer (aka: S5) and Making a Preview for Smart Pixels"
  5. Also, note that there is a bug in the sequencer in v5.3.14. The sequencer will only play the first prop in any group that was sequenced in superstar. The bug will be fixed in the next release.
  6. That's really cool. I especially like the semi-circular "loop" that is at the end of the spokes in the spinner. It enables you to have effects that go out an quickly loop around back towards the center. If a standard could be established for the spinner design then folks could share sequencing on them.
  7. The front of the star is 1/8" thick so that 12mm nodes will snap into the hole. However, some of the 12mm pixels are a bit thinner than others. There may be some pixels that you will want to hot glue into place after snapping them in.
  8. The code looks for props that have the word "star" in them. If it finds it, then it applies the different stars to the different rows. I can't guarantee what it will do on a snowflake prop, but put "star" in the name and see what happens.
  9. In S5, you do the following: Launch the Sequencer, go into Preview Design Click on the "Add" button and select "Superstar (online)" Select the 16 CCR with RGB star Prop Select all of the motion effect row for the 16 CCR with RGB star Prop, right click and select "insert superstar effect" After superstar launches, click on the File menu and select Open, and open the 16 CCR with 6 channel star sequence You should get a message box saying it has converted the star effects in the sequence into white effects on the RGB star, you will also get a message box asking if you want to place a clip rectangle around the effects on the tree, answer "yes" In S4 you do the following: Launch superstar Click on the File menu and select "Open" and open the 16 CCR with 6 channel star sequence Click on the File menu and select "import visualization" and import the visualization for the 16 CCR tree with RGB star You will get a message saying that the star effects in the sequence have been converted to white effects on the RGB star. However, the code that automatically puts a clip rectangle around the tree effects was put in after v4.4.4 so you will not get a clip rectangle put around the effects on the tree. But that feature will be in the next S4 release.
  10. The code that automatically puts in the clip rectangle was put in after v4.4.4. It will be in the next release. Or in you send an email to brian@superstarlights.com I will give you instructions on how to get the most recent SSEdit.exe
  11. Wait until the next release and it should work. Alternatively, you could uninstall 5.3.14 and install 5.3.12
  12. In version 5.3.14 there is a bug that the Sequencer only displays the first item in a group. The bug will be fixed in the next release. Are you using 5.3.14 ?
  13. It should not be doing that. Send me an email at brian@superstarlights.com and I can arrange a time to remote into your computer and see it first hand.
  14. However you see it play in Superstar it should look the same in the Sequencer. Not sure why it is not working that way for you. You can send an email to brian@superstarlights.com and we can set up a time for me to remote into your computer and see what is happening.
  15. Try to isolate logical "rows" in your display. Lets say you end up with 6 rows, each one with 5 props. You would create 6 groups, one for each row and they would have one of the "horizontal" arrangements. Then you would create a group that only contains the 6 groups and set the arrangement to "vertical stack". You would then do "insert superstar effect" on the motion effect row for that group that contains all the groups. Superstar will handle it as long as the sequencing grid does not exceed 360x360.
