    Intensity files not on Visualizer in SE

    After you have done a "save intensity files" in the PE, and save the file in the PE (not sure you need to do this step), then re-open it in SE. You should see the intensity files below all your SE channels. You then have to set your "Network Preferences" such that the networks your PE lights (intensity files) are using to "Enhanced". It appears to be working for me so far . . .

    Intensity files not on Visualizer in SE

    Jim, I just checked and they were not. I didn't think this would need to be done for the visualizer, only to control the actual lights. It looks like it is working now. Thanks for the help!
  3. I have created a sequence using both SE and PE, and saved intensity files. When I open the SE, I can see the intensity files at the bottom of my SE channels. But when I play the sequence I can only see the stuff that was sequenced using SE on the visualizer. I also had the same RGB channels programmed in SE as PE, so I deleted them just to see if they were over-riding the intensity files created by the PE. Still can't see the intensity file lights on the visualizer. Anybody know what I am doing wrong? Thanks

    Resolution in effects generator

    I am just learning Pixel Editor, creating a snowflake effect. I have a pixel matrix of 32 wide x 25 high. Can't figure out how to get the snowflake size down to just one pixel. I have it set on the smallest snowflake type, but it won't go below two pixels wide. Is there another place to adjust this?
  5. I am trying to determine if we need to upgrade from "Advanced" to "Pro" level when I upgrade to S4. We currently have a little less than 6000 channels, may get 12 more CCR's and make it closer to 8000. I would definitely add a network or two for the CCR tree, but not sure how much of an advantage the "Enhanced Protocol" is in the Pro level. Any advice? Thanks

    Lagging display

    What firmware do you have on your CCR controllers? I have heard that when going to 500K, the latest firmware needs to be installed.

    problem importing ccr into main sequence

    Brian, what is the earliest release that I will see the "export macro channels" option in the Configuration box? I don't see it, I am running 24 CCR V 3.12.2. I would like to export without the macros. Maybe it's time to get a revision? Thanks
  8. I would also like a copy of the .lee file for the 8-channel trees. Thank you very much! vbennettz@frontiernet.net

    2013 Use of SuperStar

    Good show, Jeff F. Is the fan made of CCR's or CCP's? Were you able to program the fan using the grid in SuperStar? I have been trying to do this, but the channels don't line up on the grid like I expected. Did you have to piece together the music, or did it come that way (the TSO song combined with the classical music)? Val

    Fade an image

    Image fades are just what I have been wanting to do, I think this will make our CCB tree look even better. Thanks from me as well, Brian!

    Network Speeds and Channels

    I am running 24 CCB strings with two networks at the 500 K speed - seems to be running fine. Some of my sequences are fast, so I did not dare push it to the recommended limit of 24 strings for one network.

    1 CCR of 12 is always on.

    I have only one pixel on one CCR doing the same thing. Sounds like I should also check for moisture. Thanks for the tip!

    How Are You Using Your CCBs & CCPs

    T17433 - I also have 24 CCB strings on a real 25' tall evergreen tree strung vertically. I don't think it will look as good as your megatree, however. It is going to be attached to cables, but I'm afraid some branches will get in the way, and may not be as uniformly spaced. What are you using for the center pole? I hope you will be posting some videos.

    Chases in Superstar?

    Thanks for your responses/help Brian and Ron. Your examples helped me get a little more proficient at using the Superstar software, and gave me a few fresh ideas. I will hopefully be able to get the effect I was looking for, which was to make the lights look like a flying saucer with the bottom appearing to rotate (at least that's how I remember them from the old movies from the 60's).

    Chases in Superstar?

    Is there a way to do chases around a pixel megatree in SuperStar? I envision having it look like the tree,or at least several rows (rings), are rotating and moving up and down. I have tried morphs, but I don't think they were meant for chases. The only way I can think of doing it right now is to set up a new track in the Sequence Editor and rearranging all the channels on my 24 CCB strings (all the channels for each ring of lights grouped together, for example). I think this would be a pretty tedious process. Anyone got any ideas? Val
