  1. Could I get a copy of this? Thanks in advance. My email is joeycain@gmail.com "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share".
  2. Could I get a copy of this please? thanks in advance email is joeycain@gmail.com
  3. I am looking for the Oogie Boogie sequence from Nightmare Before Christmas. I know there are several versions of the song out. I have the 3:17 version (or close to that length). I have the singing faces for it, just not the music part sequenced (I have the mp3 already). Just wondering if anybody has it sequenced and would mind sharing it. I have searched the forums and haven't been able to find it yet. My email is joeycain@gmail.com. Thanks in advance
  4. Thanks. I’ll check into it more. I just know last year I had issues and saw where a lot of people did. I would still prefer to do it manually though. I’ve been working in IT for the last 16 years and I still do a lot of stuff the old way cause its how I know and like and I can see what’s happening and know if one part of something messes up. But I’ll check into doing it with 5.4.2 Thanks, Joey
  5. I know that has been talked about in the past. Just trying to maybe get more attention to it so maybe LOR will possibly add this feature back. But I think a lot of people that use S5 would like to be able to create their playback files manually. I know last year I went back to a version of S5 that allowed me to manually create my playback files. I forget what version I was using last year but I never could get my sequences to play and had to go back to an older version to be able to create them. I just hope that when it's time to start my shows, I can get the current version of S5 to work or hope that I will be able to get them to work on an older version to manually create the playback. Anyway this is just a suggestion to LOR. Or another option would be to just us the loredit file to play a sequence just like S4 used the LMS file. Thanks
  6. That is great. That will solve a lot of my issues. Everything works fine as far as sequencing except for that.
  7. k6ccc I have it happen when I am deleting color wash effects from a couple cells of open eyes and turning on a color wash for the eyes closed. I can go through and delete a couple sections and turn on the lights for the eyes closed and it freezes and I have to wait for it to catch up. Just seems like the simplest thing changed on the singing bulbs takes forever to recalculate. Changing something on the roof line it has to calculate the intensities again but doesn't take near as long TexasLights not sure what you mean by complexity of the preview. And not trying to bring another software into this, but XLights has a render button that makes the sequences available to be played. I think it would be great to have the option to make all changes you want to make and then calculate intensities (render) manually for the sequence so you could play it and watch it in preview then. Even if that takes a little to finish, it would be better to do it at once than to do it after every little change no matter small the change is.
  8. I have an i5 processor with I think 12GB of memory. It has Win 10 on it that I installed a couple months ago. Light O Rama is the only thing that is done on this computer. No web surfing or anything. We don't even have Internet at my house (I have to connect it to my cell phone if I do want Internet). I'm also the Lead (only) Technician at a computer repair store. I have worked there for over 16 years. I don't have this problem with my roof line (right at 1,000 pixels). It's with the 2 singing bulbs ( 340 pixels). Even if I just change the color of say the outline of the bulb, the orange circle starts spinning while it is calculating the intensities. If I click on something else while it's doing that, the program pops up Not Responding and I have to wait for it to stop calculating before I can do anything else. I can even change one cell (1/10th of a second timing) and it has to calculate it. I just wish it wouldn't calculate every time you make change. I can deal with it taking longer to calculate but give us the option to manually do it after we make needed changes.
  9. When I’m changing something on the pixel side, it has to calculate the intensities of the new effect. While I understand it needs to calculate the intensity, it’s slows sequencing way down when it has to do it for every little thing that is changed. Now I’m sequencing 2 singing bulbs and the program keeps going “not responding” when I changed just one cell. My suggestion would be to add a feature to turn off the auto calculate intensities and give us a button to calculate intensities when we want to. Or just have it calculate when you hit play or even when you click on save. The auto calculating intensities and the program “not responding” is annoying and slows production way down when it takes 45 seconds or more to calculate for even one cell that is changed.
  10. You know I haven't thought about creating different groups arranged differently in the same Preview. Now I feel stupid for even asking that. Haha. I would delete the post just so I wouldn't look so dumb but I will leave it so somebody else won't have to ask. Thanks again. Joey
  11. I am adding a pixel tree this year to my show. I am trying to figure out how to add the singing face pictures to the tree. Think its like 10 pictures with the different mouth shapes for the different phonemes. I saw where you can do it manually by adding each picture you want to each effect. Just wondering if there is a faster way to do it for them without manually having to do it for each individual effect. Thanks in advance.
  12. On some sequences I want my roof outline to be arranged using the "Use Preview" arrangement. On other sequences I want the roof outline to use the "Nested Stack" arrangement. I use the different arrangements to change the way the effects look. Some effects look better on different ones. Currently if I change the arrangement on one sequence, it will change on all sequences that use that preview. Is there a way to use different arrangements on different sequences so it doesn't change all of them? I currently have to have 2 different previews, one using the roof as "Use Preview" and one using "Nester Stack". Is there a way to change it back to like it was with S4 and older where you had to import the Channel Config for each sequence and then you could change the layout/config for each sequence without affecting all other sequences?? I have had that issue since I went to S5 last year. Just seems like it would be easier and less confusing if you could change the arrangement of each sequence affecting all other sequences. That is the one drawback I have had with S5 and it gets confusing having to have different previews for the different arrangements.
  13. I have groups setup. guess I need to play around with how they are defined. this was my first year with pixels so still learning. Thanks
  14. I am having the same problem with S5. I need my roof outline to run in a single line across 2 controllers and can't add a second controller to it.
  15. I have my roof outlined in Pixels this year. I have a Pixie8 on that controls half my roof and a Pixie16 (will be changing this to a Pixie8 for next year). The Top Ridge on my house for example is running off one port on my Pixie8 (89 pixels) and one port on my Pixie16 (89 pixels). Each run starts on the outside edge of my house and runs to the middle of the house. It works but when I add an effect, each section either starts or stops at the middle of the house. Is there a way that I can make the entire ridge (178 pixels) appear as one string of lights even though its coming off 2 controllers so that effects go from left to right all the across the ridge? I am attaching a picture that shows the top ridge. I would like the 2 lines circled to be "one continuous line" even though they will be on 2 separate controllers. I want to be able to drop an effect on the ridge and it go from left to right all the way across the ridge and not just stop in the middle. Thanks in advance
