  1. Import multiple sup/lms files

    Question, S5 related. I will have a minimum of 3 sup files to get into the S5 Sequencer for each 2018 sequence. Copy and paste did not work as expected. Have I missed something? When I create a blank sequence, I import the lms file from the SS export. How do I get the other data in the blank sequence?
  2. PE in 4.3.26

    Thanks. My P10 Panels are complete except for the enclosure. I used Darrell Pelligrin's, CFOL P10 PiHat. I have one of Ron's for a backup.
  3. PE in 4.3.26

    My SS is at 160 License. I can actually use SS, but mostly for Tune To info. I was thinking of doing a 2 panel x 2 sides using P5 panels for Tune To info and using the P10 for effects and maybe Video. All but the Tune To info will need to be done in the S5 sequencer though
  4. Spirals in Superstar

    Will this work? https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cduiclqsk4kbvm1/AACZG9mGHkKCsZo1HJe5cW2Wa?dl=0
  5. PE in 4.3.26

    That's how I was planning on doing it Doug. Sequence in Superstar, Export to SE, then import to S5 Sequencer. Tweak, Save and Run. The P10 panels are going to be where I need either S5 or xLights. You know me though, LOR through and through. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  6. PE in 4.3.26

    Yeah, that seems to be where I'm going to be stuck. Since my display will change for 2018, either I can't figure out how to convert multiple files in one sequence, or the program just won't do it. Plus, I can't seem to get the effect I want on the ChromaFlake Tree/Pyramid. I will probably stay with S4 and go to the PE to do a few things that I, either can't accomplish in SS or want an element level effect. Jim, when I opened my ChromaFlake Tree/Pyramid in S5 and SS, it didn't look right. Maybe I was doing something wrong, I don't know.
  7. PE in 4.3.26

    OK Doug, I'm installing S5 on the PCs. I may be giving you a call when we get our displays down. I might even make a road trip down on a Saturday to get some one on one help. We'll need to set something up. I'll have a few questions to start, then try to dig into it.
  8. PE in 4.3.26

    When I installed 4.3.26, I cannot get the pixel editor to open. Is it still included with 4.3.26? My 2 other machines have 4.3.24 on them and the pixel editor opens just fine. Going to drop back down to .24 on this machine and see if I can open it then. I will report back here either way. Un-installed 4.3.26 and installed 4.3.24. PE will still not open on this machine. Everything else starts opens up fine. Any Ideas?
  9. spiral tree wizard for visualizer

    http://www.shannonclaus.com/light-o-rama-object-creator-loroc/ You can use this little program to make Incan or LED, and RGB Spiral trees. Been using this app for a few years now.
  10. need help with my visualization

    OK the rows are across. Columns are up and down. This is actually my "Row" Visualization. You don't have to do this in the "Real" one. As long as the channels and Universes are exact, The real will play correctly. So you will Import a visualization pair, Row for one and real for the other. I do all of mine vertical when I import. For the elements, I do a vertical matrix but, if it is still the case, Superstar does not support a vertical matrix. The way around it is to, Open the Prop dialogue, delete the prop and then regroup it into another prop using the prop satellite button. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but it really isn't. You only have to do it once and it's done.
  11. need help with my visualization

    When you open a prop in the visualizer, there is a radio button that is labeled Superstar. Open that and check the box that says "Force Superstar Row/Column" and just tell it where you want it. In the example above, the 2 elements at the top left are as follows Row 1, Column 1 (25 pixels) Row 1, Column 12 (25 pixels) Row 2 column 23 for the next one to the right. (24 pixels) Since these 4 arches only have 24 pixels each, I start them on row 2. This way I can get a morph across all 3 elements and the timing is exact.
  12. need help with my visualization

    This is what Jim is talking about. I try to separate each element and place it on the grid in some sort of sensible order. Once you spend the extra bit of time to place things where you want them, it's done. no need to change it unless you add an item or delete one.

    We usually have a projector and screen. I'll pass this along to the other guys so we can start building a list of topics.
  14. Tennessee Spring Mini

    Probably 60% of our people use RGB. I'm sure that will be in the topics of discussion. A couple of us do Superstar, so we can help there. Yes, Papagayo would be a nice topic.
