  1. That's a PERFECT reason to go with separate controllers. HOWEVER, you do realize that after they get involved, they are going to want to do more - and you wont have any channels available. Just food for thought.

  2. SS Auto faces are not designed for individual prop. The easiest way to sequence singing faces for RGB and have your eyes at the end of sequencing is to sequence it in non RGB rows and then copy paste in to the RGB rows. Singing faces is all I do and my eyes cannot handle the black grid screen, my OCD cannot handle any auto sequencing anything (though papagayo is useful to most). If you have sequences any singing face as long as its the same # of mouth movements they are all interchangeable RGB- AC/ LED and AC/LED - RGB JR

  4. Never looked at it like that Jim. Thanks. That is good point. It will be better to use the 16 channel controller with 8 channels on the face leaving 8 unused since they will most likely say "can we add a few more things along with the face?". Get another person hooked on the hobby!

  5. Thank you for all your help @Aubreyon the Facebook group page. Got it working. Thank you everyone!

  6. I always use at least two rows for each item so I can crossfade between them or layer them if I want to. Think video editing . There is a drag edges tool approximately in the middle of the toolbar, looks like two tiny red arrows. Turn it on and you can drag or make a fade depending on where you grab it with the mouse. It's tricky to grab until you get used to it You can always copy and paste cells to increase the length or delete extra length. To apply a motion effect to a specific length, select that area and right click on add motion effect. Just a few ideas.

  7. I mis-understood the question. I thought he was saying he could do it in S4, but not S5. I don't remember it being an issue in S4 either, but it's been several years since I have looked at S4.

  8. Awesome! Here's what I mean with S5. IF your sequence has multiple networks (like traditional LOR and DMX), when using the sequence editor, unless those networks are physically available at the time you test them, you will get the error your seeing that it can't play it back because a certain com port is not available. To get around this, in the sequence editor, on the right hand side is a tab called "Control Lights" or something very similar to that. In that tab, it will list all the com ports that certain sequence uses. If you want to test the DMX only, you will simply uncheck the checkbox on all the other com ports and then it will play. You don't need to change your LOR network to none because if you forget to put it back, you will not have lights working on those networks and you'll be pulling your hair out then. This particular unchecking of currently unused com ports is different than it used to be in S4. Again, at least I think so. haha! Well, no matter what, you have stepped forward enough to know that the lights work.

  9. i don't see it mentioned, but for connecting AC light strings in various place, look up SPT1 wire and vampire plugs. Gives you a lot of flexibility to connect the strings together you want to act as one. I have close to a mile of wire connecting things together.

  10. Considering the size of the LOR Pixie Tree, I think the 15" Boscoyo star is a better match. https://boscoyostudio.com/product/chromastar-15/ Here is my 15" star. The base star uses 40 pixels. I drilled 10 extra holes in the star, so it uses a 50 pixel string. When building the prop for the tree I connected 2 strings together, 100 pixels with 3 folds. This used 4 ports for the tree and 1 port for the star. It left me with 3 ports for something else. In my case, 3 arches. Bob W

  11. Toys, Yes, Expensive, No Those lights are not cheap. they are at least 250W incandescent and cost probably a grand or possibly much more. The outdoor weatherproof domes alone are $500 each. You will not see beams from the $100 dollar 80W LED heads, except on a foggy night and they are not waterproof. Mine are mounted under my eaves to keep them out of the worst of the weather, so no sky pointing for me. Not much point anyway. If you want to get depressed, Google 250W Moving Head Light

  12. Every one of my controllers has the bulkhead ones from LOR, saved me from ME 🥺 (tripping on cables while adding other cables nearby)

  13. Perhaps I'm missing something but have you looked at clipboards to see if they would meet your needs? You can save content that you have copied to the clipboard under Clipboard Management and assign a name to the saved clipboard. I have numerous effects that I can choose to assign to my props. I just select the saved clipboard and then do a paste by cell, paste by time or stretch to fit to load the effect into my new sequence.

  14. I have been using them since they began selling them on every build. They have saved me ore than once from the deer that run through my yard. JR

  15. I’m not sure about saving clips. You could always make a sequence called “favorites” and copy paste in segments Also with different beats and rhythms I’m not sure how they would look. I am a manual sequencer, headset and mouse I don’t even use keyboard shortcuts or any wizards. Once you get hood at sequencing it becomes second nature. JR

  16. Getting closer to crunch time. So here is a reminder to read the first post in this thread. Summary: Backup, Backup and Off-Site backup

  17. My sequences have 2 sets of RB G flloods and several other display elements that have 4 or 8 RGB channels in each. I would have to delete outsinging faces since some have been purchase. If interested, pick a couple from the list b elow and I'll send. Of coarse, with any "shared" sequences, you will hav e to dosome cut/paste in SE to make use of them since no bodies show is going to match with anyone elase. 1) Adams Family 2) Day-o 3) Dead Man Walking 4) Don't Stop Believing 5) Ghost Busters 4) Grin Grinning Ghost 5) I Got a Feeling 6) I Want Candy 7) Light Em Up ? Live and Let Die 9) Monster Mas 10) Munsters 11) Party Rock Antem 12) Simpson Halloween Theme 13) This is Halloween 14) Thunderstruck 15) Triller 16) Uma Thumon 17) Werewolves of London 18) ZombieJamerboree 36
