  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. Still have this problem. Anyone?
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. Let me take you back even further: I ran my first Christmas light show with an Atari 800--four channels! I had lot of lights. I had to program the "sequence" in Atari Basic language. It was a first of its kind. No music, just flashy blinky! That was in about 1985. I ran it for about 15 years, then static lights, until I discovered Light-O-Rama. There were no controllers to be purchased back then; I built my own boards with opticouplers, triacs, resistors, etc. Fun times. How grateful I am for Light-O-Rama!
  12. Deb--and others, I have a question about your multi-house display: How do you handle the music for such a large display--especially on different streets? How to you broadcast it so everyone can hear it? My EDM transmitter won't go that far! Thanks for your help. Craig
  13. Wahooooooo! Deleting the LOR\Sequences\Cmdmap.lcm file and renaming the backup file worked! I can now get into the Windows Shell Command. Bob, I'll use your new utility in MIIP. Thanks, everyone! I don't know what I'd do without this forum.
  14. Thanks for your replies, especially Bob, who is trying to make this work for me! I'll let you know what happens.
  15. I experienced something new tonight with LOR 4: Whenever I try to add a command to the Windows Shell Command, I get the message "Expected Whitespace." I get this when opening the Windows Command, and if I try to save a command.It was working fine, and I don't know what happened. I hate to be too aggressive since my shows are now running.Can anyone help me?Thanks,Craig
