  1. The following was copied from a post by Tim Fisher. I like Tim and many others are tired of spending MANY MANY hours updating channel configurations! 1) I've literally been asking for this since LOR 1.0. But it's even more important today: "We need a better way to handle changes in channel configuration". Back when I had <200 channels, it was a PITA to have to go through 10 or 20 sequence just because I decided it would be more convenient to plug something into one controller instead of another. Now that I have about 4800 channels, it's not just inconvenient, it pushes me to the verge of suicide! Loading such a file, even on my pretty modern 8-core intel i7, takes most of a minute. Then loading the correct channel config takes 2-4 minutes. Then saving the file takes another couple of minutes. Take that times 20 sequences, you do the math. Take it times 40-50 sequences like some folks here have... Uhm, n o. What we need, at a minimum, is a version of "import channel config" that allows you to select multiple files and let them crank away while I'm off setting up or going to the crapper or something. Even better would be to have the channel configs be dynamic - that the sequence would not contain this info, but instead look it up in the channel config file - so that if we changed that file, all the other sequences would "just work". Hello LOR, do you read these forums? This request was made last year and I could not find one response from anyone in authority from LOR. This problem is a real issue when running 40 plus sequences with 1000's of channels. LOR please help and give us a solution to this serious problem.

  3. My sequence editor freezes multiple times during play for ~ 1/8 – 1/4 sec when a lot of light action is going on. I’m using version 3.10.6, I have a mixture of LOR & DMX universes, 1200 total channels. I thought the problem was with visualizer, but after tuning it according to the visualizer performance thread I decided to try running the sequence editor alone. Same problem happens during high light action. As the bar moves along during a play it freezes for a short time but catches up, the music is unaffected. I’ve tried rebooting, shutting down other apps, etc. but still have the same problem. My computer should have plenty of power; it’s a 64 bit AMD Phenom x4 with 6 Gig of Ram. Any suggestions, it makes it very hard to tell if the timing is right.
  4. My husband just started using LOR last year and loves it! He started with 16 channels and this year, he has added another 16. After a lot of help from a friend who owns a Christmas lighting company, we figured out how to program and the show was pretty good, for a first timer, LOL!! My husband would like to use some of the same songs that he used last year, but change all the channels and how they function through the song. But, can he transfer the taps from the songs? I know how to transfer the channel config, but that will be changing too, so we aren't worried about that. We just want to transfer the taps to the 32 channel config. Does anyone have any advice for us?? Thank You so much, in advance, for any help!!!
  5. I have built roughly four sets of 100 RGB channels (roughly 1200 R/G/B total of course...) in SE, saved the new channel configuration, and have tried several times to export the new channel configuration into my existing visualizer model, intending to update it with the RGB channels in the RGB props. Only 16 channels for each RGB "prop" are exporting into the visualizer. I do have these props selected as "DMX", so I don't believe visualizer "thinks" these are regular LOR channels. I have tried both "load" types (one is by name and the other is by name/channel/etc); it looks like LOR tries to import the multiple RGB channels (I just tried it screen by screen instead of "all update", so I see the universes in that manner). I just imported my new "with RGB channels" configuration into a new sequence, and all of the channels imported correctly into a new sequence. I am learning how to use LOR S3 to sequence RGBs for the first time and I really like to see how the sequence is shaping up in the visualizer. What am I missing here? Thanks very much in advance!!
  6. Using S3 advanced. After copying a timing (any length) and pasting, it will only paste everything in the block selected (wont paste complete timing in same timeings as copied). I have never had this problem but this is my first time using the advanced version. Any ideas?
  7. Hi everyone - Here is a new sequence for my 2nd LOR year. Last year was a success. So I am adding in 10 LED dumb strips to add to my roof this year. I like this sequence a lot.... By the way here is my FB page - like me and track me https://www.facebook.com/ChristmasLightsOnWalnutRd
  8. Report Number: RB04 Module: Sequence Editor Software Version: 3.10.6 OS Version: Windows 7 SP1. PC: I7 CPU with 6 gb RAM Description: RGB channel conversion still very slow on the changeover. When converting a DMX Universe to RGB channels, the Sequence Editor is taking anywhere from 3-5 minutes to convert. More of a nuisance issue than anything. Repeatability: Happens anytime a full Universe is converted
  9. So, I have a bunch of mini trees that have been 4 channels (Red, Green, Blue and White). I can get the 3 channels to (Red, Green and Blue) to combine, but how can I cut and paste, or merge the white into it? The reason I want to do this is because I'm converting the trees to DMX and moving the LOR controllers to another element in my display. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks Patrick
  10. Does anyone know if it is possible to reverse a loop? Say I have a loop that spans 30 secs of sequence and I have it set to repeat 20 times at a 33% speed increase. Can I just have that reversed so it will then slow from the fast speed it reached back to it's original speed? So I want a second loop that does the opposite of the first loop. I can't find any options to do so. I was thinking i may be able to achieve the same effect by altering the timescale and then setting the now much faster sequence to slow down over repetitions and then again alter the timescale back to normal. I couldn't find a way to alter the timescale mid sequence though, is this possible? Hoping there is a way but if not then I'd like to request some reversing tools for the sequencer. Copy and paste with invert selection option would do, as long as it could work for loops to reverse the effects of the loop. I have a feeling the loop interface may have to be changed to achieve what I'm after.

    Hello all. I just purchased my first controller and would like to know if there is a way to integrate video show with LOR? For example, I have a hologram that I display for Halloween that I would like to come on during a sequenced singing pumpkin display I am working on. I am really new to this and just don't know if this is possible? If so, if anybody can give me some tips and what it would take to accomplish this that would be great. Apologize if this is a stupid question but all this stuff is new to me. I have always done the hologram but now would like to make my Halloween display more extensive. Any insight from you experienced users would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Is there a way to clear the recent file list in S3? I have moved files around and have everything goofed up and need to straighten it out, but those darned links to recent files bug me. Thanks as always for any input.
  13. I apologize for the dumb question, but I received my software license yesterday and banging away today at animated faces and could use a word of advice here. My preparation and 2 years of pre-study is really paying off, but I really am already getting tired of, and being slowed down by, the sequence always starting from the beginning of the song every time, regardless of whether I press the "Play" or "PlayAgain" button. I've done a fair amount of video and sound editing, and could always start from anywhere I want on the timeline. Is there a button or setting or a personal error I can avoid that will give me this option?
  14. So I've been messing around with the Visualizer program and working on the Halloween songs for my first Halloween display and here is the song Dream Police by Cheap Trick. It's just the faces but they use a total of 2 controllers to work. I also have other props for my display but I just wanted to share the animated faces. enjoy and more videos to follow. P.S. I do all my own sequencing using Papagayo and I will start posting my work since I've completed a number of Halloween and Christmas tunes. One last shout out to BobO for his awesome work with the Papagayo program. this is a result of his work. Thanks Bob
  15. I am fairly new to visualizer. I have ran my sequences for a couple of years but this is the first time I have taken a photo of my house and then made the display. Im having a hard time trying to figure out how to link my display from visualizer to the sequence. I want to see how it works and i am not understanding how to get it done correctly. Could someone please assist me with some links or a how to? Thank you.
  16. Okay, you of great experience and knowledge. I humbly come before this forum and confess ignorance. I have S3 Advanced 1 1602 controller Hopefully at least one more controller by SeptemberI finally have my light layout: Where each strand of lights will physically go on the house/yard, etc. I decided that I need to get a visual of what I had only created on paper, so using Visualizer I created my layout. I named the channels and assigned channel numbers. Here is the question(s): I downloaded several sequences to help me get started. They of course have their own channel configuration, so I replaced it with my saved channel config file. I could not figure out how to change a channel for a given string of programming. Example: My physical configuration has 4 trees, assigned channels 11,12,13 & 14. The channels in the downloaded sequence that would control trees are 1,2,3,4. Is there an easy way to change the downloaded sequence channels?
  17. i am getting a santa face so you can see him talking. what is the best way in the sequence editor to make the lights move to the words? i have not found anything on here about it. any help would work!
  18. I need an azmuth or sanity check if I could. We're assembling a first year display for this fall/winter. Fixed budget, so we're probably skipping a few learning steps in order to shortcut hardware escalation by buying the good stuff - once. We're planning on between 32 and 48 LOR channels for our first display, and going to immediately add a number of smart pixel strings and a number of DMX floods. We dont have the S3 software yet, but plan to go straight to the Advanced version to support the DMX flood fill lighting capability. Do we also need to pop for an SSS license if we want to start individual pixel addressing? I cant afford LOR's CCR solution, but I think I can swing it with a simple lower cost smart string/controller fed by a LOR to DMX dongle. Programming is my biggest concern because we haven't had any experience, and right now we dont even have the software or hardware in yet to start testing. Ive been through the tutorials and have an understanding, but until we get the real software and test hardware, we cant get a full grasp of the tasks that lay ahead. It seems like a lot to bite off at one time, but I've run the numbers and while it adds a ton to the up front cost, it truly is the most cost effective route over the longer term. I'm concerned that we wont even be able to buy a seed sequence or two because of the complexity so we're really on our own. Are we thinking crazy thoughts here?
  19. Can you remove the Macro channels from a CC Device in the SE without any ill effects. I never use them and probably won't. I'll be using Nutcracker a bit this year and it will make copy and paste a lot easier. Any thoughts? Ron
  20. This is my second year with LOR; I also added a second controller this year. I adapted my 16 channel version of Mad Russian to 32 channels. Also my first year with my new window frames. Built them myself and am very happy with what they bring to the show. Please let me know what you think.
  21. I installed 3.9 on another computer for some editing of next years show, and none of my files from my other computer shows up in the Sequence Editor. The files are there, it just wont list them to open them....... I did just create a simple sequence on 3.9, and added it to the show computer running 3.7, and it accepted it without any issues. I dont get it. Ed
  22. Hi Is there a way to change the default sequence location other than re-installing LOR S3?
  23. It would be great if LOR S3 would allow you to Scrub the timeline like you can in video programs like Adobe Premiere, Final cut…….. It also would be great if the time line indicator would remain highlighted vertically. These two things would not only speed up our ability to edit, it would also help the accuracy.
  24. Using 3.8.0, used Instant Sequencer from Super Star on three songs, exported as a LMS file. Imported to SE 3.8.0 and all worked great. On the fourth song, got an error code seen here in the forums for Sequence Editor 2.? with no answers. The full error is: Error Loading Sequence, An Exception occurred! Type UTF Data format Exception, Message! Invalid Byte 2, (1) of a 3--Byte Sequence. Tried loading directly from the file, re-did the IS several times with no luck, I have not moved or tried that song on another computer with 3.7.0 yet. Any help? Ideas? Tnx!
