  1. Thanks for your help. Yes, they were upgraded from S4. I have made way too many changes to go back to S4 and clean them up. I guess I'll just have to live with it. I appreciate your response.
  2. For some reason I have several groups that are what I would call "double-nested." There is a group and when I open it, there are no group names, just another group to open. I would like to remove the groups, but there is no "ungroup" option when I right click on any of the groups. Any ideas, anyone? Attached is a screen shot. You can see the double minus signs by the side of several of the groups. Thanks!Groups.pdfGroGroups.pdfups.pdf
  3. Right! I don't understand when software is "upgraded" and capabilities are taken away. I hope it comes back......soon.
  4. In the past versions of the software (S3 and S4), I was able to watch the "visualizer" from my computer while a show was running. In S5 I can see the preview fine while sequencing, but is there any way to see it while the actual show is playing? I liked to watch it from time to time during the show. Is it just a setting I can't find, or has that capability been removed from S5? Thanks!
  5. I'm still debating about whether the Motion Effects in S5 are worth the learning curve and the seemingly harder way to do things (although the Motion Effects are really cool!). Maybe it's just that I'm not used to S5 yet. Still, I'm very glad I waited until after Christmas to tackle this. Thanks!
  6. Ok, I figured it out! You have to outline the area where you want the chase, right click and choose "Custom Chase." In the Chase Type area, choose "Apply the chase to every selected row," and make sure the box "Clear existing effects in the selected area" is UNchecked. Then hit "OK." Seems like a lot of extra work in S5. I believe S4 was much easier to do this.
  7. I'm still trying to learn S5--so glad I didn't take the plunge for Christmas last year! I didn't think I would have such a learning curve. I know this is probably simple, but I can't figure it out: I want to sequence some overlapping chases, but every time I do, the new chase goes to the foreground, instead of the background. After I make my initial chase, how do I make the subsequent chases go to the background? Thanks!
  8. I know your post is a year old (today), but I was just having the exact same issues--trying to play a new sequence for my eave lights for St. Patrick's Day. Nothing worked. Now that I have created playback files, they show up on the Show Editor and work great. Thanks so much!
  9. Found it! I wasn't showing all items in the prop names. I was just showing one track. Now the Add/Modify Motion Effect Row shows up! Thanks for your help. Learning new software at 65 years old is frustrating, but fulfilling once I learn it. Thanks again!
  10. The last few days I have downloaded S5 and trying to make it work. How do I add a "motion effect row" to a sequence that I imported from an S4 sequence? I also imported the preview from an S4 visualizer. I'm stumped. Thanks.
  11. I got the skipping songs problem fixed (I had moved some songs to a different folder, so Zara didn't know where to find them), but I am having problems with the Satellite input. It will not "hold" the setting I select. It changes back to "Breakaway Pipeline" every time I change it. Any ideas? I am running Zararadio 1.6.2 with the DTMF tones, and I run it as an administrator. Thanks!
  12. Thanks for your reply. I'll check that out. And by the way, I thought I had put the question in "General Decorating Questions." Thanks for moving it to the correct section; and I apologize!
  13. Well, the season of lights is over! Now I would like to fix a few things that bugged me all season long. One is with Zararadio, which I play during the day. All of a sudden Zara has started skipping over many songs in my playlist. They all worked early in the season, but I had to reinstall Zara 1.6.2 during the season, and now it skips more songs than it plays. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
