  1. Just curious, but I thought I read somewhere you could create regions or subsections within a prop in S5. For example, on a snowflake, you can define a single prop called a snowflake and then identify the node numbers that make up that arm as a "region or subsection" I can not find any references in the forum here. Am I just dreaming, or did I really see/hear that somewhere? I know I could create a custom prop for each section and then create a group, but that feels to be a brute force method. Is there a more efficient method?
  2. I thought I would throw this out there to see if anyone could give me some advice. I need to do 2 shows this year, one at a fixed location and a smaller one that will be mobile. They will be using separate hardware and network setups. I have a mix of RGB pixels running 1.31 and some AC lights running LOR network. One show will be running an AlphaPix16 and 9 LOR controllers. The other will be running an AlphaPix4 and 1 LOR controller. I’m running v 5.0.12. I have created 2 distinct previews, 1 for each show and the associated props with the appropriate UID I set in the channel summary. i’m programming and testing both from my laptop I plan on moving the larger show to another laptop to run it and use my laptop for the mobile show In S5, where is the network setup and config located and referenced? Is it associated with the Preview or is it common across all previews? I know when I try to create playback files it gives me network associated information. Any advice on the best way to tackle this would be much appreciated. larry
  3. Pixel Editor PC Move issues

    OK folks. It appears I found the issue. I inadvertently placed the image files I used in the PE picture effect to do arch chases in the wrong location. When PE was trying to do just that particular effect it was not showing. As a result, it appeared random by prop and by sequence. My apologies for crying wolf. Although it is Halloween time!
  4. Pixel Editor PC Move issues

    Hey all, I'm looking for a little help. I'm moving my show from a laptop I used last year v4.3.14 PRO to a new one this year running v4.3.24 Pro and I'm running into issues with my show running in PE correctly on the new device. The software load went smoothly I've copied over my sequence directories and media files, my *lcc files for visualizer props as well as the pixeleditordata.xml for PE previews and data into my new machine with the my .lcc files. When in PE I've assigned the Preview file and I can see the RGB and SE props in my prop list. I can also see my effects programming in the timeline with the associated prop, but when I play the song in preview, some of my RGB props play correctly and others only play half the time. I have completely deleted and reloaded all the sequence data and pixeleditordata.xml, but no luck. The only thing I can think of now is to delate everything again and back out to 4.3.14 and try it, but was hoping to avoid that battle. Any thoughts? Hoping it is as easy as pushing the little red light bulb. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
  5. 911 - E1.31 + LOR S4 not playing nice

    Thanks to all. It was a common listener issue. I hope I can return the favor at some point.
  6. 911 - E1.31 + LOR S4 not playing nice

    At the risk of sounding dumb. How do I start comm listener without starting show player? Sequence editor will not run with LOR control panel running
  7. 911 - E1.31 + LOR S4 not playing nice

    Dennis, Yes, I have added three universes, in DMX with E1.31 running unicast with correctIP.
  8. Folks, Added a Holiday Coro Alpha Pix 4 to my show this year and having some issues. Upgraded to S4 Pro and using Pixel Editor for all RGB sequencing. From within LOR PE and CP active, my RGB and the AlphaPix control outputs without issue. When I try to run the same sequence from SE and ensuring the intensity data is present, my LOR controllers will work fine as always, but the E1.31 output does not work. I have checked most of the items I have seen on these boards, but can't seam to find the cause. I am certain I am over looking something easy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Show starts in 3 days.
  9. Shooting arch question

    I want to thank everyone for the help getting arches to leap. I did find an issue with using the spiral effect when changing directions. SPaschall was able to replicate and was going to reach out to Matt. So while they work through it, I decided to give Luke's method a try using the picture effect. It actually works quite well. I have posted several images below for you all to try if you wish to cover the primary colors plus white. I tried to label them pretty straight forward. Blue fade to blk R2L = a blue segment fading to black moving Right to Left. Simply the chose the picture effect. Chose the file representing the color and direction you want. Set the movement to go in the same direction and adjust the speed to fit the timing. Deselect repeat. Appears to work quite well in both directions. Hope this is helpful to other PE newbies like me.
  10. Shooting arch question

    I'm still having issue with this effect. Thanks to your video, I can make it leap left to right all day with most any timing just by adjusting the speed as suggested. However, when I take the same timing and switch the direction to right to left, I get two segments every time with the first one starting at about 10 degrees on left side. Anyone getting these results?
