  1. Per the norm but above quality support, worked with Brian Superstar in in no time flat ,found the issue. For whatever reason when I attempted to import the visualizer file into SS, I selected the wrong the number of detection lines. Dumb cockpit error on my part that didn't stump Superstar Brian at all Thanks Brian and Thank you LOR !
  2. I don't have a web site. Tried putting files n word or pdf., still too large
  3. I am adding 60 5 pixel peace stakes to my Halloween and Christmas display. Completed 1 Halloween and 1 Xmas so far. Started another Halloween one, same process as before, open an existing SS sequence, import the new peace stake visualizer file, rename the SS and start sequencing. Noticed that several stakes, easily seen in scenes., have moved. Totally confused and at a standstill. Verified proper .lee was imported. Ideas? Can't upload images, only .4 KB
  4. Hey Ross I'm trying to use using Superstar for the candles as I am also sweeping across the peace stakes as soon as a song starts. I uses a couple of colors for the flame so it looks like flickering. Still playing with shimmer and sparkle but like just changing-the color of the cells i am playing with SE and using a couple of colors copied and pasted the duration and offset a cell or two for other flames so they all look a bit different Sure would like to find an easy way to sweep across and add "wave" or jumpy effect easily. working on that
  5. I too am adding peace stakes using S4 this year. (S5 hopefully next year, just having a tough time climbing that learning curve.) Looking at adding different tracks with the peace stakes order different on each track, all #1's grouped, all #2s grouped, a group for 1-5 etc. Anyone try this? Brute force will get the bouncing affect, would try on maybe 1 sequence, but adding this prop to a dozen sequences, looking for means other than brute force. In my preview, one thing that looks pretty cool (using 5 pixel stakes, # 1 is at bottom) is to illuminate 1-4 in say solid red and have # 5 flicker, Kind of looks like candles, considering using that at start up and quiet sections of songs
  6. After a lot of pulling hair, have my first set of Pixel Stakes in visualizer and in a grid i can work with in SS. All this is in S4 Pro (not ready to switch to S5 yet) Question now is, how do you sequence these bouncy peace stakes? is there a relatively painless method?
  7. I am adding about 80 5 pixel pixel stakes to my display this year. I am not ready for the switch to S5, although that looks like a solution but been trying to migrate with just frustration. I can get the pixel stakes drawn in Visualizer but can't seem to get a workable / logical layout in Superstar. Stakes will be in a semi-grid fashion and need to have the SS sequencing grid in logical layout for sweeps, bouncing stakes etc. Suggestion are most welcome! Perhaps someone has a .lee with pixel Stakes I can expand upon?
  8. Looking for wiring layout and / or visualizer files for GE Matrix-Arch-Spinner
  9. Seems like this should be feasible, haven't figured it out yet. I have 4 - 50 RGB arches that I just completed a new sequence for. I also have 4 -100 RGB circles (essentially two 50 RGB lights strings joined together) in my setup. Is there a simple means to scale the arches to circles? I have done many sequences for both props in previous years but seems that scaling tool should be able to do this and save a lot of time. Just can't figure out what parameters to plug in Thanks John
  10. I would be interested. Trying to learn S5 on a different computer, but know I will be with S4 for awhile. I helve the latest S4 Pro installed
  11. Been toying with S5, but not grasping it yet, so will stick with S4 for 2020 Changing up my display, adding pixels to the roofline. To facilitate, drew up a simple Visualizer file and have about 1/2 of my first song completed in Superstar. The RGG I had were CCB's on two of the old CBD100 controllers. Took a break, and decided to add some regular LED's in Visualizer to the roofline to simulate the icicles I will also have hanging. These are straight LED and will be controlled by a CTB 16 Saved the file in visualizer, reopened SS and tried to continue working on previous song. The programming grid in SS was set four rows of 50, top row far right string, bottom row far left string. As I drew in my first morph, noticed the rows have changed position, yet no row for the LED strings appeared in SS (didn't expect them to). Top row is now 3rd CCB string to the right, 2nd row is far left string, 3rd row is now far right string and bottom row is now 2nd string from right Since i didn't want this, went back to the visualizer, deleted the LED string, saved it, verified in Visualizer the 4 CCB strings are still in the right places. Went back to SS, visulaizer placement is still screwed up even after shutting SS down, relaoding SS and then reimporting the VIZ file Other than drawing a new Viz, how do I recover? Came up with a thought, wnet back to visualizer and selected SuperStar in the fixtures and "Forced" row position. Saved, reopened SS, opened the sequence, same ting, reimported the Viz file, same thing, rows are messed up
  12. Hey JR Thanks for the tutorial yesterday. Guilty ! I'm the guy requesting you do some in real-time, appreciate d it! John
  13. Unfamiliar with the Pixie controllers, so unaware of that feature. Guess I'll just plop down and draw up new .lee files. Curious, are S5 viz files backward compatible to S4? Still running S4, doubtful if I'll be S5 ready this year
  14. Count me in for next class JR, same time same station? -john jwblazek@aol.com
