  1. I think because this thing is plug and play with no sequencing required it is popular for places like Disneyland. Just set it and forget it. The chip set and voltage will determine if the strings can be controlled by an LOR controller. I bet the RGB strings are just a standard smart string with it's own Twinklypro Plug. Find out the Chip set number then check the LOR website for compatibility. https://www.amazon.com/Twinkly-Decorations-Custom-String-Special/dp/B07RW2R2ZK/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Pro.twinkly.com&qid=1586086791&sr=8-1
  2. 23 seconds is sometimes what I wait when I make a small change to a motion effect on my Matrix. I never had this problem when my prop previews were on low resolution. Since I changed all my props and prop groups to high resolution the Sequence will take a long time to load the preview. This causes a very long waiting period before the sequence loads completely. On some of my long songs it takes minutes to load.
  3. To Matt and Mike. I have a small issue with Motion effects editing and I think this video will explain it better then me trying to explain it in words.
  4. I just upgraded to 5.4.2 and found what I think is a new feature? I might of missed it in previous vernsions but here is what I found. There is a Tab in the motion effect Called "Picture". This Tab says Embedded Pictures. So I started looking on the main screen for something related to this tab. I found Under the Sequence drop down menu there is a selection titled Manage Picture effects. This seems to be where I move all my Pictures that are used in my sequence from external to become embedded in my sequence file. I have 2 questions on this. 1. Is this a new feature? 2. If I embed my
  5. Vince I sent you the whole shebang. I thought it was going to Greg but I picked up your email from his quoting you. If you can use it great. enjoy.
  6. It is a custom prop. I can send you the Prop file. and I can send you a preview with just that prop. The eyes are a little tricky to work because each node is a smart node so when the eyes are open normal the nodes that make the angry eyes are off and when they blink a large portion are not on. what I could do is send you the Scary Christmas sequence with just the singing tree preview, then you could look at it in S5. The Physical Prop is a Holidaycoro RGB pixel tree. I run the mouth channels with a CMB24 and the outline of the tree uses a CCP I. I only use 96 pixels for the outline. the eyes
  7. let's try this one. this shows the happy tree and Angry tree. I can also make it blink or wink.
  8. I made a pixel singing tree that uses 6 mouth positions and smart pixels for the eyes and outline. Here is a short video I hope will play showing some of the effects I can do. This was the test I did with S5.
  9. No not newer. I guess I haven't updated my profile oops. I have 5,3,14
  10. No doubt you have found a big bug and the LOR people will fix it. I had a bug develop in the early version of S5 in Windows 7 just before I started running my Halloween show in 2019. I was in panic mode. LOR seem to take forever to find a work around or a fix so I went back to S4 for Halloween. The show went off without a hitch in S4. Soon after the show started they released 5.3.14 that had the fix. S5 ran my 2019 Christmas show with no issues in Windows 7. I was very frustrated as you are. Take a break. The LOR people got this. This bug is a big one and will get fixed soon. I know. I know. Y
  11. I don't think you understand how the copy and paste feature works. When you select copy in the drop down menu it places all the selected data in the clipboard. by default the std clipboard.LCB, the extension .LCB is the standard LOR clipboard extension use byall versions of SE. when you use the paste feature in the dropdown menu you are pasting the data that is in the std clipboard.LCB file to the sequence. This is why we keep referencing the clipboard.Every time you cut and paste or copy and paste you are using the clipboard.
  12. yes the std clipboard is the file that copy/paste feature uses. I think your issue might have to do with the attempt to retrieve old data is S5 with CTL Z. I know when S5 first came out it had some Clipboard issues and the ability to Contrl Z Might be one that has not been fixed yet. I have never used the Ctl Z feature so it is not a problem for me. Hope the LOR people are reading this thread.
  13. are you saving the flipped data from BobO's flipper as a new file or are you overwriting the Std clipboard?
