Multiple Background Images?

Recommended Posts

I have been using stock sequences since I started with LOR several years ago, and this is the first year I got brave enough to try my hand at creating my own sequences.  Is there a way to import multiple background images into the Visualizer? We live on a corner lot, and I would like to be able to view both sides of the house at the same time.

The Preview doesn't have to look like reality. Its just to give you an idea of what's going on. 

I have stuff all over the place, below , above and to the sides, wherever it will fit. There just isn't room on the picture for everything.

You could make a split screen by combining two pictures, above and below, or side by side, or use no picture at all. You would need to do that in an image editor.

I hardly notice my picture anymore, I have it set so dim.

There are zoom controls in the preview to allow you to zoom in on props, and there are zoom options on sequencer playback which do a similar thing.

Exactly, I mostly use individual props and rarely use the vis any more anyways. I use my vis for the LOR singing Quartet and not much else since I already know what everything looks like. I mainly use it when someone needs help with the vis.

in terms of the original question, there is software that can patch too pictures together (like a panoramic). Then you can make the composite picture your background.  My yard is quite large and i used 4 pictures to create the background image.   As a newbie, it was instrumental for me in getting started as i really needed to visualize what it was going to look like.  In fact, I programmed my first couple of sequences while i was out of town in a hotel room.    I still use it, although as the others have said, it has gotten busy over time.
