Sequence Light Sweep

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have information on how to do the light sweeps I see in videos?  They can go vertical, horizontal, diagonal and turn on/off or change color in a nice fluid motion.  

 

Can it it be done with SE/PE?  I’m using smart pixels which I’m sure is required.  All my lights are prop associated.

Any insight are helpful hints on how to do this?

Thanks!

You can use the color fade tool in SE 

Top right of SE looks two arrows.

Ince you get that you can choose start and end colors and drag across your working area.

For example, I have a window prop, and I want the window to turn on from left - to - right, one pixel at a time. The far left entire side will turn on and then the horizontal top and bottom one pixel at a time sequentially and finally the right side all on. Would what you explain do this?  Then ultimately the same line going from left to right would turn on the same point of other props like the roof line etc.

In SE, you would do either a single color fade or a series of them and then use the Chase tool to cause the same fades to occur on a group of pixels one after each other.  If you use SuperStar (what I use for almost all my sequencing), it's real easy and I can explain it.

Currently don’t have Super Star. What level of SS would I need? 

 

Thr SE option seems difficult if I wanted to do an entire house.

SS level is determined by the number channels (pixels) that you need.

Ok. So count pixels multiply by three and that’s the level I need. Got it. 

 

CCR’s  are controllers right? Do they need to be LOR?

Do you have a sample clip of this just so I know we are on the same page?

Off hand no, as I do all my sequencing in SuperStar.  I likely could create one for you however...

No, they do not need to be LOR that is why you count channels. A 50 pixel string would be 150 channels, a 100 pixel string would be 300 channels.

You can purchase SS here:

http://store.lightorama.com/suse.html

Here is the SS license info: (Go by channels)

License Version CCRs/Channels Supported Regular Price  
2_CCR 2 CCRs - 300 Channels $29.95  
4_CCR 4 CCRs - 600 Channels $49.95  
8_CCR 8 CCRs - 1200 Channels $99.95  
16_CCR 16 CCRs - 2400 Channels $149.95  
24_CCR 24 CCRs - 3600 Channels $199.95  
40_CCR 40 CCRs - 6000 Channels $299.95  
60_CCR 60 CCRs - 9000 Channels $399.95  
80_CCR 80 CCRs - 12000 Channels $499.95  
160_CCR 160 CCRs - 24000 Channels $599.95  
320_CCR 320 CCRs - 48000 Channels

$699.95

Thanks Mr P.  I kinda got the breakdown from looking on LOR store site. I guess I didn’t get the CCR part.  Didn’t realize one CCR was only 50 pixels. Yikes.

Don't feel too bad, I updated to the 80 CCR level this year.

This isn’t an annual renewal license is it?

And say I only wanted to do all the lights on my house, anc not the on ground ones, I can control just those ones with the SS and the other ones regularly? Would that require my to sequence in SS, PE, and SE (if I had 110 controllers)?

Nope.  Buy it once and you're good for life.  Of course you may want to upgrade later, but no renewal required.

You can sequence any or all of your lights in SuperStar and do others in Pixel Editor or Sequence Editor.  Note that in S5, it is FAR easier to mix SuperStar effects and PE or SE effects on the same props.
