6 Tips for large channel count sequencing

Recommended Posts

Denny, the SSD will likely not gain you a huge noticeable difference as majority of the wait time is in processing and loading HUGE XML files into memory.  You can definitely install the drive as a secondary and then move all your LOR stuff to it.  You can re-install LOR to it as well or just move the LOR files store to it by re-running LORPost.exe from your LOR install program directory.  You won't need to re-install windows unless you want to improve windows read performance off the SSD drive.

Thanks for the info.  I just installed the SSD today but haven't transferred anything to it.  Will reload LOR onto it and then transfer all the files.  I reduced the sizes of the video files too, so hope all this will speed things up.

Just a reminder for everyone who turned off compressed sequences throughout the year to make save times quicker, make sure you turn it back on and re-save all your sequences so you wont have any hiccups at show time. Happy Thanksgiving!

When using a show computer its not the same.  My show and sequencing computer dont share a drive. I transfer only the .lms via a backup remote ftp like dropbox.   The show computer gets to build the compressed file for playing the first time after transfer.  Last year I had different LOR versions on the two machines so the show computer didn't like the compressed built on the sequencing computer and rebuilt it anyway.

Wow this post is now over a year old and is still the best way to squeeze out all the performance out of the sequencer. I really thought we would have seen an update by now.
