Channel groups doesn't matter as long as they have the same amount of channels. Having the same amount of groups would alleviate confusion but that is all. The op needs to remember that each CCR group has 50 pixels or 150 channels and each DMX group will have 100 pixels or 300 channels. When pasting they need to remember that CCR groups 1 & 2 will paste into DMX group 1, CCR groups 3 & 4 will paste into DMX group 2 and so on. If the op expands all groups in the CCR version and the DMX version they should have the exact same amount of channels regardless of the groups.

That's what I figured so I did it the opposite way.  I expanded both and just turned 2 of his channels into 1 of mine

Mr p your right however there is less chance of making a mistake copying and pasting 24 lines verses 1200 lines .

In January, yes - NOT NOW!  Too big of a learning curve to make that switch right before show season.  However I would recommend that you upgrade to S5 in January.  That way you have many months to learn the new software.

 

I learned S-5 in two weeks. If your a long time LOR user, then it's not that difficult. I got the, "You can't learn that NOW!" thing too. Challenge me will ya 🙂

The key to S-5 is the preview. If you have a second PC, load S-5 on that and transfer some of your S-4 sequences and play with them. 

In S-4 you could get away without the visualizer, but not in S-5, it runs the show. Your channel config is gone, and the preview is the end game. Take a pic of your house, put in preview and go from there. The sequencing is basically the same.
