What am I doing wrong, 360 up and over tree in preview

Recommended Posts

Will try to explain this.  Had this set up in S4 and it worked but I appear to be doing something wrong in S5.  I need to make a mini tree, 360 up and over.  each bundle will be it's own color, LED strings red, green, white, and blue.  If I tell the prop maker they are multi color strings, with 4 bundles, up and over 360, it makes 4 channels, one for each bundle.  Well my LEDs are not multicolor.  If I just change the drop down to channel per color from multicolor, it immediately adds 12 more sequential channels.  Still just have one strand each, up and over, 4 strands total. attached are screen shots, capture 1 is with multicolor selected, capture 2 is what happens when I change the drop down to channel per color.  again, only using 4 colors, 4 bundles.  Stumped I am!  Version 5.0.18

You want "channel per color", but just 1 bundle. This will make you tree look like an inverted "V" with nothing in the middle (best we can do for now). When testing this, I found that with 4 colors, 2 colors go on one side of the tree and 2 colors go on the other. That problem will be fixed in the next beta release.

After thinking about it further, you should use "Tree 360 Wedges" for you RGBW minitrees. This will look much better in your preview. The number of bundles must be 1. The "Preview # of lights per bundle" and "# of folds" can be set according to what looks best to you. The prop definition will looks something like this:

YAY WHOOOHOOOOO!! THANKS MATT!

The 360 Wedge worked with 1 bundle, 400 lights per bundle, 20 folds.   That is exactly what I was looking for!  Now to append all the songs I have finished LOL!  I am ashamed to admit the number of hours I have spent trying to figure this one thing out,  everything else was pretty easy to build.

 

Thanks again Matt!
