  1. More info: When i say slow, I mean like 30-45 seconds for the sequence to load and start playing. I tried running sequence compressor and it said all 11 of my sequences were already compressed. I should have taken a screen shot, but the last time the player hung, when i looked at LOR control panel it was stuck on decaching sequences....
  2. I have some fairly big sequences (lots of pixel content) and sequences typically loaded slow the FIRST time the show would run, but then very fast. Now, since upgrading to the latest version, sequences are loading slow (and slowing down show) every time they load! Is there some step i missed to compress or otherwise correct this?
  3. Love these bins.... But I made a frustrating society last year: I bought a LOT from Lowes, Then saw them at Costco, and bought more. They looked identical.... But... They aren't.... And so the lids don't interchange and they don't stack perfectly.... Doh!
  4. Ohhhhh! My favorite theme! Can you share one more copy? Lowepg at gmail dot com
  5. I would also appreciate a copy. Thank you for sharing!!!!
  6. wmike, Thanks for the suggestion but the whole point was that I was specifically trying to avoid manually setting up the channel configuration. ;-)
  7. (Guiltily) I am NOT using tracks :-( So I barely understood your suggestion :-) - time to read up in between sequencing, soldering pixels to pigtails and pushing bullet nodes into coro :-)
  8. So, I've moved to a show that mixed with tradtional ac channels and pixel channels. Here's my dillema: I want to add in a few elements from my old show, but I've already spent hours working through the new configuration. If I try to use "import" - the channel config from the old sequence, its screws up all my existing channels. Example: I'm trying to import about 72 channels into my 1000+ (mostly rgb pixels) conguration. How can I do this?
  9. Hmmm. Just realized I'm running 4.12 and theres a new version! Ill update and see if it helps at all...
  10. How do you access this "smooth to fade" utility? ‚Äč I'm already freaking out about my XMAS show. I have Haloween sequences already at 1Gb. For XMAS, I'll have 8000 more rgb channels... my (newish) laptop already stops to a crawl now! I just paid for the S4 upgrade, but I'm worried about performance with all these (new) pixels in my show this year.... I really DONT want to try to port to FPP this late in the game!
  11. btw- here's an example of what I was talking about.... this was with 5 cameras (3 stationary, one handheld, one drone)
  12. I tried this and the only catch for me is I like shooting video at dusk, but before its pitch black outside. This way you still can see the outline of the house and its not blindingly bright lights only. THAT screws up the plan to shoot at different times because the light changes :-(
  13. Can I send you my 6 camera multicam files??? :-) - very generous offer... I'm an amateur to be sure, but its amazing how much better your videos look when you add even a single extra angle to the typical straight-away recording!
  14. great feedback. not sure why I was tunnelvision on a laptop- i can definitely get far more bang-for-the-buck with a little desktop tower.... To answer the question, my workflow will likely be this: 1. Create sequences on my iMac (multiple giant, beautiful displays to use and plenty of horsepower) 2. transfer sequences to pc in the garage. I guess one of my concerns was moving in the unchartered territory (for me) of running DMX in addition to LOR at the same time. Im not sure if I need multiple usb dongles, or can run DMX of the ethernet, etc. Im focused now on planning and pre-ordering the lights (presales) and hadn't figured out the mechanics of connecting the computer to the new DMX network
  15. Well, since my laptop sits in the garage all winter running the show- heat probably isn't an issue ;-) - but point taken on the laptop. I was really using that because it's the extra windows machine I still had lying around.... The other one I used to build a virtual pinball machine, but that's another story ;-) Yes, the more I think about it, the more a bare-bones PC might do the trick. I've built dozens of them back in the dark times when I was a Pc-guy :-)
