FED UP!!!

Recommended Posts

celljump.jpg


don't know if this has anything to do with it, but .....

This year had 32 channels and didn't happened to me.
Was setting up for next year (stay at home dad) anyway and when I click on where the words under the channel name was bunch up (like the video) it would jump like the rest of you. Was wondering if the rest of you have your channel list like this too.
I've tested it a couple of times same thing, then I made the channel list one word instead of bunch up and could not get to happen for over two hours?

just my two cents

good luck

I've had this same thing happen in old and new versions as well. It seems like it happens when I haven't saved changes in a while.

Jeff,
I just have the items not the controller and unit ID.
But still sometimes a little bunched up, but doubt if that is the problem.

I have found that it doesn't matter if there is one word or six words in the channel description for the "bunny hop" to occur.

I may not care next year because, I am threatening to put one bare 100W light bulb on a 5' stand with a pull chain centered in the front yard.

Below the pull chain will be a sign that states: "For light show, please pull my chain".

Now that is funny right there I don't care who you are.

Between Firefly and CDI LEDs I think that sounds like a great idea!!!!

I've been programming 368 channels in 2.0.16 for about 8 months now, and I have never had this happen to me. I do have the channels jump to the bottom of the channel list, but not jump from cell to cell.

I am still sequencing in 2.1.6 and have not had this issue. It was definitely there before.

Just throwing a thought out there. Ya never know...

I'm not a Windows programmer, but some of the comments got me wondering if the bunny hop could be related to the size of an individual user's display and row/column sizes. Could the window manager be recalculating different coordinates for the visible grid because of something like a rounding "error" or other factor, causing a shift on certain events?

Another minor annoyance I see often is when I stop play, with the spacebar, the cursor is at the far end of a selection anchored at a seemingly random cell off-screen. I have to click somewhere to finish the select, then I can navigate normally. I don't think I'm hitting the shift key...

This problem has been difficult for us to reproduce. It is very high priority and will be fixed as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately I don't have all the data requested, but I will say that I do experience the hop as well.. 602 channels, XP, 2.0.16, musical sequence, multiple tracks, usually use play visible screen, have not noticed if it correlates with waveform visible. Generally only use the mouse for the selection pointer when moving large distances... Otherwise most work is keyboard shortcuts...

Oh almost forgot.. Screen resolution is 1680x1050 on a widescreen laptop...

LOR were are you at on this problem? I am rather new and just recently started to have this problem and like someone else said. When doing a large sequence. One can loose their train of thought if they have to go back and fix a turned on cell that was not supposed to be turned on because of this darn hopping going on. I have had to go back and cut and paste whole sections because I didnt notice that the dang grid shifted and now I am doing something that I did not want to do.

I dont know all what data you wanted, but I am running Vista home pro w? Sp1. This just started to happen with my 4th track w/32 channels. In my work area, about 6 channels are not visable and I have to either slide up or down to the either the top or bottom 6 channels. Will try to save more often to see if this helps.

Thanks

Max

LOR,

I haven't started programming for 2009 yet, but I would like to know what the status is on this fix.

Hi Charles,

I know that we have made some Sequence Editor performance improvements that will be most noticeable with large sequences. I am not sure if we have been able to reproduce this particular problem... Although this affects a number of people it does not happen to everyone and unfortunately it does not happen on LOR PCs.

We will have a solution one way or another within the next couple of months.

Just for the record, it happens to me as well on a pretty regular basis.

Hello Dan,

It is good to hear from you. I hope you, Mary and John are doing well and ready for yet another busy season.

This little problem is only like a mosquito buzzing around your ear and I am sure there are certainly bigger bugs to swat. It is irritating, but nothing more.

For me, the compiling speed is a much bigger issue in that it slows down the programming time. Have you made any progress with that?

Hi Charles,

Yes there has been a significant improvement in that area. We are doing well and yes we are starting to get ready for another year!

Thanks

Dan,

Am I the bull in the room that no one wants to aknowledge? I revived this thread and 2hrs later your buddy also posted. Who did you respond to? Your buddy Charles. Now I really dont care if Charles does not care about this hopping around while programming. But it has caused me some time and flustration. I even offered to try to help pin down this bug by asking what information are you all looking for.

I cant help feeling slighted. Again I offer to help by providing information as to what I am doing at the time this "hopping" happens. Heck I'll even ship off to you my sequence "poorly done as it is" to help analize what is going on.

Respectively I request a responce to me this time.

Max

1st year in the making.

Max,

My guess is that Dan came across this thread after monitoring the recent posts heading on the forum and found the two posts referencing the "bunny hop". They were within a couple of hours from one another and located on a thread that had been dead for four months. They were both posted on a Sunday and Dan made his reply first thing Monday morning.

Not unlike 99% of everyone on this forum, I am simply a customer of LOR and hold no "buddie" relationship with LOR. I had the good fortune of meeting Dan, Mary, Alex and John at the Texas Christmas Light conference last summer. Having had the pleasure of putting a face with a name, I made a personal comment.

Nothing more, nothing less. I would email LOR direct, if you want a more in depth reply.

Hi Max,

I only read the last post when I got the notification that there was a response to the thread. Should have read back a bit.

I was talking to Bob today and when he finishes what he is working on he is going to work on this problem. That should happen in the next day or two. Bob will be looking for any help getting to the bottom of this. As I mentioned we have not been able to reproduce this.... It has happened to me but I have not been able to go back and get it to happen again.

Thanks Dan for the reply. If I can assit Bob with any info that would help him with helping us. Then please pass on to Bob my screen name.

Again, thanks for your reply.

It should be pretty easy to reproduce - it happens all the time. All you have to do is program anything at all and then scroll either up or down to a track that's currently off the screen. The track you just scrolled to will not be aligned with the one you were just working in. If you position the cursor back in the track you were working in and press the space bar to begin playback, it will cause the tracks to almost align. To get them completely aligned, you have to stop the playback and then push the play button in the tool bar and only then will the tracks snap to perfect alignment. Again, it shouldn't be hard to reproduce - it happens all the time and has happened from the first day I downloaded S2 - all versions.

George,

Thanks for the input. That issue that you have mentioned is not the issue that I am talking about. In the case you are talking about, the tracks are miss alighned on the screen but within each track the timing mark is correct.... This is something we have talked about fixing and I am not sure of the status. As you stated, it is easy to reproduce and it is actually a function of the fact that each track is displayed independently.

The issue of the jumping screen is when the screen moves a little when you click on a cell. For example lets say that the top of the grid is channel 25... When you click on a cell in that channel the screen may move so that channel 24 is now at the top of the screen. This can cause you to put an event into the wrong channel.

For some people this seems to happen often. For other people it simply never happens at all.
