  1. Morphing from On to Off

    Wow, I think that's exaggerating a bit, but glad the sequences were the hit of your whole display!
  2. Morphing from On to Off

    Yes, the effects will play back correctly in the next release. Currently there is not a video or document about morphing around windows. If would of course be good for me to make one.
  3. Morphing from On to Off

    There is a bug in the sequencer. When playing back stuff from SuperStar It will do RGB lights properly, but it will not playback regular non-RGB lights properly. It should be fixed in the next release. I might also comment that sequencing grid that you show in the previous reply has the lights around the windows as squares. This works well for some effects, but if you want to do morphs around the windows you would want each window to be a line on the sequencing grid. To do that, in the preview specify the windows as a horizontal or vertical stack.
  4. Morphing from On to Off

    The best way to do it is to turn the lights on with a morph and have the "wave of black" be the tail of the morph. To do this use the following settings: Set State 1 Head Length to be the length of the region you are running the morph across. For example, if it spans 50 pixels, then set it to 50. Set State 2 Head Length to 0 Set the Main Start and End to white, Set the Tail Start to white, set the Tail End to black Set "Show Entire Head at Start" selected Set the start and end of the morph to covert the entire display. The entire display should start out white, then a wave of black should travel across the display If you want all the lights to be on for awhile before the wave travels across the display, then set them all on using a scene, and have the morph butt up against the scene. Hope the above makes sense.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Sequencing roof

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

    Glad you got it working!

    If it still does not work send an email to brian@superstarlights.com
  13. CCB Arches-Desperate

    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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
