  1. I think I built that one several years ago. You are welcome to download it (you may already have it). I know I have distributed it many times.
  2. I just looked at your prop file to compare with mine - which does exactly what you want. The difference is that for mine, each channel is a separate item that is then grouped, whereas yours is a single item. Here is a link to both my singing tree, and a preview with four of them: http://newburghlights.org/share/jhains/ And JR beat me to posting by 30 seconds... BTW, mine also has three additional channels: 1 pink bow, and two multi-color strings for use during instrumental songs.

    Adding video to LOR

    Yes, you can. Simple answer is that you use the video file instead of an audio file as the media file. Hook up the projector to the show computer, and some config settings. I can't give you any more detail as I have never done it. There are people here who have and should be able to help.
  4. NO!!!! The voltage supplied to the card MUST match the voltage needed by the lights. The 60 volts is the max rated for the card (not that I have ever seen 60 volt lights). Also note that the two sides of the card do not need to be the same. For example, you could have 24 volt lights and power supply on one side and 12 volt lights and power supply on the other. If you look at the PC board, you can follow the connections from the inputs to the outputs. On the positive side, the only things in between input and output is the fuses.
  5. Alan, appears that it is working fine. Of course I heeded Phil's warning and doing ALL my testing on copies of both the test sequences and a copy of the preview. I know far better than to burn my bridges! I can always go back to a prior "working" version. As for the edited image in PaintShop, I did something similar years ago with AutoCAD back in the S3 days when DMX pixels had to be manually placed one at a time. Created the layout for my pixel star in AutoCAD and saved that as a .jpg file. Then used that as a background temporarily to accurately place the 270 pixels in Visualizer. Once placed, then removed the background .jpg image. Thank you!
  6. Yea, I can see some advanced uses for something like that. Something like Windows command 1, 2, & 3 with each having options for when to run such as a) start of song, b) x seconds after start of song, c) x number of seconds before end of song, or d) at the end of the song. In reality, options c & d could be eliminated if it's too much trouble because we CAN do the math...
  7. Two corrections on what Phil said - although nothing he said addresses Kevin's issue. On the crossover cable, LOR pin 4 goes to DMX pin 1, LOR pin 5 goes to DMX pin 2, and if you use the common wire, LOR pin 6 goes to DMX pin 7. Secondly, the DMX adapter has nothing to do with any settings on the LOR tab. I can't give you a good answer on the DMX tab in Network Preferences. Are you using the Simple setup or the Advanced setup version (displays 16 universes at a time)?
  8. Thank you very much Matt!
  9. As I understand it, in S5, you recreated each arch as 50 individual bulbs rather than a pre-built arch. And the only purpose of the PaintShop work was to create a model of the desired shape so you knew what to re-create in Preview with the 50 individual bulbs. I don't have any software that can do that part in any case. I think I will just leave it squared off and not worry about it. Actually since I gather that you created the S5 Preview, this way, (if you saved it), can you e-Mail the preview or arch prop file to me? Thanks for your efforts Alan.
  10. Here is the catch. I am sequencing under the Jim account, but the show computer runs under the lor account (both logging into the same domain). Although I have MIIP installed on the sequencing computer, I essentially never run it there, and running it under my account would put it under c:\users\jim\... rather than under c:\users\lor.... The lor account normally never logs into the sequencing computer, so there was no c:\users\lor\AppData\Local\MIIPclient directory (and under normal circumstances the jim account could not access it anyway). So the solution was to create that directory under c:\users\lor, and then give the jim account access to it. I think I could have logged in as lor on the sequencing computer and run MIIPclient, which as you said would have created the directory structure, but I would still have needed to grant access to the jim account to that directory structure. Make sense?
  11. Looks like that worked. Took a couple passes between logged in as the administrator and logged in as my user account, but appears that it worked. Thanks for that idea Phil. Still would be nice to have a switch in Sequencer to be able to turn it off.
  12. It may. I will have to log in as administrator and give my normal user account access to the lor account's appdata\local directory. I do have MIIP installed on this computer.
  13. Correct. I have three computers here at the house that have LOR installed on them. 1) My Family Room computer where almost all sequencing is done, 2) My Show computer which runs the show from mid October to early January (and is powered off the rest of the year), and 3) my server which runs the landscape lighting show the rest of the year. On all three of those, the LOR files are in a mapped network drive of L:\ which is really D:\Shared\LOR on the server. So any change in the L:\ drive by any of the three computers is immediately available to the other two. The Windows command is trying to execute C:\Users\lor\AppData\Local\MIIPclient\MIIP.CMD %SEQUENCE_FILENAME_NO_EXT% (and can not be changed).
  14. That is exactly the command. On my sequencing computer, while sequencing ANY time I play a segment of the sequence S5 complains that it can't run the windows command and will not play. I have to delete the command, and then I can do my sequencing.
  15. In S5, if you have a sequence that has a Windows command saved, when trying to play the sequence in Sequencer, the Sequencer apparently attempts to confirm that it can run the Windows command. It does not actually run the command as far as I can tell, but tries to. That is certainly not needed when sequencing. The only work around is to remove the Windows command and HOPEFULLY remember to put it back. This is particularly a pain when sequencing on a different computer than the show run on - and the command that is suupposed to be executed only exists on the show computer. Request, can you either delete the test of the Windows command when playing, or change it so that there is a popup advising that the command could not be run, but then allow playing the sequence.
