Unable to Import Visualizer Props into Pixel Editor

Recommended Posts

I just opened Pixel Editor to learn how to use the application.  I don't know where to download PE v4.3 (if it's available), so I have PE v4.2.  I have the Pro version of LOR software.

Because I have PE v4.2, I first created and named a new PE preview, then I created a sequence file in Sequence Editor, and then I opened that sequence in Pixel Editor.

In PE, under Sequence Tool, I selected Preview Design, clicked on Prop, then selected "Import from Visualizer" from the pull-down menu.  PE opens the folder at C:/[myname]/Light-O-Rama/Visualization.  I then double-clicked on the Props folder that is inside the Visualization folder.  The Props folder is blank, but I don't know why.  Because that folder is blank, I can't import props that I created in Visualizer.

In Visualizer, I have exported props to, and imported props from, that same folder (i.e., the folder C:/[myname]/Light-O-Rama/Visualization/Props).

As I like to admit, I must be missing the obvious.

PE supports importing the full Visualizer file (.lee) but not individual prop or fixture export files.

Thanks, that's good to know. Later this afternoon, I'll import my visualizer file to get a handle on how PE utilizes fixtures/props I've already created in Visualizer.

Thanks, the two videos on arches are really easy to follow for this newbie.  It answered a few other questions I had.

I'm using Visualizer, not SE's visulalizer.  But, with the tip from Matt, it was a breeze to import my entire Visualizer file into PE.  

I need to spend more time using my fixtures/props inside PE.
