    Define a sub-section of a prop

    One thing you may try is to create lets say 4 motion rows and sub divide the prop into 4 sections then apply the effects into the section you wish to use. You can achieve this vertically or horizontally. SPaschall
  2. How do you have the prop setup in the preview, Are both setup up as the same stack? If not the motion effects will respond differently. SPaschall

    I don't think you can, You can only use one preview and I don't think you can attach two different intensity data's without them overwriting each other. SPaschall

    RGB Sequence Programming

    It shows ramps on all my programming, is it something you imported in? SPaschall
  5. Depends on what you are trying to achieve, if you are just using one strip you could use a closed line or a vertical matrix with only one strand. SPaschall
  6. You can also add motion effect rows that will separate the strings into sections. So if you want the string to be in 8 sections (great effect for an arch) right click on the prop, click on add/modify motion effect rows, then choose subdivide. SPaschall

    Max number of pixels

    Don't know if this helps but when S5 was still in the Alpha stage we ran over 46,000 channels of pixels on a commercial job with no issues. Matt has done a great job with improving the performance since that time. Unless you really go all out with overloaded universes I think it will handle 99% of any residential display SPaschall

    Draw a string then in the bulbs section at the bottom use the drop down. It has two strobe types available. SPaschall

    Motion Effect row priority

    Is the whole house set up as use preview? SPaschall
  10. Start Universe 2 at 1 and it would end at 261. Use the individual setup so it will allow you to put in the Universe start/end configuration SPaschall

    Channel Configurations

    It does have it, at the top left look under sequence, go to the bottom where it says grid configuration, there you can export your channel configuration then import it to the next sequence. SPaschall

    View a Sequence

    You will have to upgrade to pro to use PE. SPaschall

    New to LOR and pixels

    Another way that we do it is to use a .WAV file for sequencing then use the mp3 at the 128 bit rate for your show.You will never have issues with the .WAV file jumping around during sequencing. SPaschall

    Spiral mega-tree in Preview?

    Where are you located in Franklin? My daughter lives there. Would like to visit your display SPaschall

    Spiral mega-tree in Preview?

    Just out of curiosity, why would you want to create a spiral tree with pixels? You can achieve the effect with the spiral effect and have the tree with 16 strands straight down? SPaschall
  16. Did you recreate the playback files to save the changes in it also? Or are you experiencing this in the preview window also? SPaschall
  17. If the problem is still there you can always skew the time, that is still a large time to try and skew but should be possible if the software will allow such a large time differential. Hope it works Shelley SPaschall
  18. Use the paste by time feature, 15 seconds is a long time from a programming state. Is this a purchased sequence being added to an existing sequence? SPaschall

    Not Controlling Lights

    Close it down, open the control panel, open PE then make sure control lights is checked. SPaschall

    S5 beta & DMX

    If you are in Demo it will only allow setup of LOR channels in the prop definition. To enable DMX you will need to upgrade and get the pro software. SPaschall
  21. I am now able to run both on the same desktop, I downloaded S5 to my laptop, then I put the S5's LORSequenceEditor.exe file on a thumbdrive, I then inserted it into the S4 program file folder below my S4 .exe on my desktop. Both are working just fine, I can open both at the same time from desktop shortcuts, and all my files are intact that I have done in S4. SPaschall
  22. Matt, could you explain in detail what would cause it to make it unstable? So far it has been really good. SPaschall

    Channel names

    I am assuming he grouped them together in S4 SPaschall
  24. SPaschall

    No way to chase across 8 arches

    If you have your arches grouped can you move the motion effect row to the bottom of the group and name it arch 1 so you know what it is? Or if you don't need the motion row, right click and remove the motion row. SPaschall

    Use preview

    That is true I usually have several groups whether horizontal or vertical because the effects behave differently with different stacks. Glad it is working for you. SPaschall Sent from my SM-S907VL using Tapatalk
