  1. Backup for Brian and SuperStar

    Well, first let me assure you that I will continue supporting superstar. I am committed to my customers, and developing and supporting superstar and writing sequences are my full time job. I do not have a job elsewhere.
  2. Superstar to S5

    The support is not there yet. The sequencer needs to have a premade preview of the ccrs and star and then superstar needs to recognize that the star effects go to that star. The support is planned and is a high priority.
  3. Preview Problems

    In my reply above I should have clarified that I wouldn't be able to start on it until after Christmas. During November and December the focus is customer support and it takes up most of my time. Now that Christmas is past I can focus on the software. Doing away with the grid width limit of 64 is a high priority. There are some other things that need to be done in conjunction with that. It is going to take at least a month to do.
  4. Spirals in Superstar

    You can create a preview of your superstar display, select the whole row in the Sequencer, then do "insert suprstar effect", then open the sequence in superstar, close superstar. There is a video tutorial on this. Go to the lightorama main page, click on Support, then click on "Tutorials and PDFs". Scroll about half way down the page and look for: Sequencer (ShowTime 5) Inserting SuperStar into a sequence
  5. Spirals in Superstar

    Do you have a 360 degree tree? There is a sample sequence of spirals on a 360 degree tree in the "Samples" folder. A spiral is really a slanted moving line that moves around the tree. And when you import the visualization of your tree you want to select "wrap around" mode. To look at the sample sequence do the following: launch superstar click on the File menu and select Open navigate to the Samples folder Open the file: c:/ (your lightorama folder) / SuperStar / Sequences / Vis_24x25Tree_4RowGlobe_Spirals.sup
  6. Sequencing roof

    The maximum length of the sequencing grid is 360. You will have to split your 490 pixels into two segments.

    Glad you got it working!

    If it still does not work send an email to brian@superstarlights.com

    The settings above look good. I would first run each of the exported sequences "standalone" and confirm they control their respective lights. I have personally run more than one subsequence in a sequence and have seen it work. Subsequences only run when the subsequence channel is on. Be sure you have turned on the subsequence channel for the entire length of the sequence.
  10. CCB Arches-Desperate

    Are you sequencing the arch sequence by itself, or are the CCRs and arches sequenced together? You said you are not using a visualization, so you must be in CCR mode. In CCR mode you specify the number of CCRs you are sequencing in the Layout dialog box. Then in the Configuration dialog box you specify the unit ID of the first CCR and the rest get assigned consecutive unit IDs after that.
  11. CCB Arches-Desperate

    In superstar, click on the Tools menu and select "Configuration" Set the unit ID of the first ribbon to be 1D Also, in the network section, select Aux A network and have 1D, 1E, 1F, and 20 be within the range given for the Aux A network. For example, if the CCB controllers are the only thing in this sequence then you would set the first unit ID of Aux A to be 1D, and the last unit ID of Aux A to be 20.
  12. CCB Arches-Desperate

    launch the sequence editor open the sequence exported by superstar expand one of the rows used for the CCB controller. Click on the pixel and a dialog box will pop up. In that dialog box you will see the network and unit ID used for the pixel. Is it what you expect it to be? If it is, try playing the exported sequence "stand alone" and see if it will play to your CCB controllers.
  13. SS upgrade $100?

    Downloading the software gets the latest bug fixes and features, but it does not renew or register the LOR license. In this case the license was recognized because the new version recognizes the new 16CCR license level. But when you purchase an upgrade to your license level you need to re-register your license by launching the sequence editor and then clicking on the Help menu and select "upgrade light-o-rama"
  14. SS upgrade $100?

    The 16CCR license was added last summer. Only 4.3.24 or 4.3.26 recognize it. You can download 4.3.26 by going to www.lightorama.com and clicking on "Sequencing" then click on "Download Software". On the page that appears, scroll down a bit and there will be two buttons, you can click on "Download Software from main site" or "Download Software from alternate site". After getting the latest version you should see 16CCR at the top of the superstar program.
  15. If it is a 75 pixel string then as you saw in the Visualizer, it assumes that CCR strings are limited to 50 pixels. With your current visualization the workaround is to create a Pixie device in the sequence editor and define it as using 100 pixel strings. The exported file from superstar will have a 50 pixel string and a 25 pixel string. You would need to copy past them one string at a time into the Pixie device you added. Alternatively, in the visualizer you can create your star as a 75 pixel DMX string using the Pixel Tool. When you export a sequence from superstar it will have DMX addressing, but you can copy/paste it into a Pixie device and it will take on the addressing of the pixie device. Hope the above makes sense.
