  2. Hey JR, it sounds like a lot of effort for the result. I think I’m just going to get some made for pixels
  3. I’ll have a look. Thanks for providing some insight to this. I’m super ocd so maybe it will bug me too much, I’m also wondering about is it worth the time…
  4. Very true. I was thinking similar, was just curious if anyone has done it with success.
  5. Has anyone converted from incans to pixel by drilling out holes? I"m debating on getting new coro for pixels, OR trying to update my current props to accept pixels. Thanks!
  6. Motion Effect, whole house you can do that in S4. Man, I really appreciate your time giving me info. so other than maybe a few new effects, is there anything else I’d be gaining?
  7. I"m not opposed to making a new preview. Doesn't take that long. Kinda wanted to re-vamp my layout a bit anyhow. S5 still uses Pixel Editor, or is S5 just "S5" all inclusive?
  8. I'll watch this. I didn't catch this on when the VCS was going on thanks. Right now, I never use the visualizer. I use pixel editor and the previewer in there. So if I install LOR on say a second PC, that won't be a problem. I could put it on my tower computer to try out, before upgrading on my show laptop. Hmm
  9. Hi Phil, I was just reading and watching the video in another post with the waveform. You and JR had a bunch of discussion on it. I also read a bunch of other posts. Looked like a lot of people having issues bringing in their older S4 sequences. Hard to know if it's the program/process or more of just users getting familiar with a new product. I'm a little nervous to be honest. Since working with S4 over the past 3-4 years and Pixel editor which I just know. But I'm open to some of the new stuff, as long as it's not going to set me back. I'm even eyeing SS as an add-on. So once you start the upgrade, there is no going back? Unless it's on a different computer, which I don't know how that works out with the license (or even possible). I really don't have a second show computer anyhow. I did check, and looks like I'm approved for up to S5 5.6.* Oh DECISIONS DECISIONS... What to do.
  10. I kinda follow, but guess I would need to see an example to know what you are talking about.
  11. I was told there were not any new effects. But there are? I have always looked with the old "if it ain't broke, why fix it". But maybe I should. I think I'm starting to stress myself out with trying to figure what I want to do, and how I should do it...
  12. I found this from 2015 post... "The way the Intensity Data works is that the Intensity Data is put into a file with a name that starts out the same as the name of the .lms file but ends with .ss.lid. For example, if the name of your sequence was MyAwesomeSequence, then the exported .lms and .lid file would be: MyAwesomeSequence.lms MyAwesomeSequence.lms.ss.lid If you had exported Intensity Data from the Pixel Editor then the data is in a file named: MyAwesomeSequence.lms.pe.lid When the Sequence Editor launches it looks for the existence of Intensity Data files by the same name as the sequence and if they exist it adds them as a line in the Sequence Editor." Sounds like it just looks for the files.
  13. Got it JR. So I would not have any problem sequencing my house, and other props using pixel editor (save that intensity data). Then I could use SS to sequence Matrix one (save that intensity data). Then lastly use SS to sequence matrix 2 (save intensity data). Then when I play the sequence they would all come together? That is my plan. To use a combination of Pixel Editor and SS (if possible).
  14. For clarification, I run S4. SS is an add-on. So Say I wanted to control/program/sequence two matrix's that are 2500 pixels each, I would need to get the $350 license for that? And the rest of my show I can use the standard S4 Pixel editor to sequence? Or can I get $250 license good for 3000 pixels, and would that allow me to sequence program one Matrix with SS, export that to S4, and then could I use it on the other matrix with different effects? Or is it locked to the first matrix. Lastly, is SS all or nothing, meaning it's an add on, but do I need to add it for ALL my show, if my show is 12,000 pixels, but I am only using SS for the two matrix props. Thanks. That part has always been a little confusing to me.
  15. 😵 I don't know much about the P10's. Not sure if it would be more work, more/less cost, and I do however know requires building an enclosure.
  16. Good point. My crowd is probably 50 ft away. Do pretty close. I’ve ran a pixel tree for a few years, so I totally understand the resolutions. I thought about going a smaller matrix with closer spacing, but wanted a little bigger for more a wow factor. My tree is 2” spacing. I figured I’d land in the middle with 1.5 and not have two 5000 pixel matrix’s. That would probably be too much for me.
  17. Understood. I guess I’ll have to try it out to find out. Do you have any videos you can share?
  18. Thanks JR! I have not seen that one yet.
  19. I'm looking at 6'x'6 at 1.5 inch spacing. I totally get what you are saying and will keep that in mind. Any background on adding to a picture? If you or anything has any video clips, would love to see them. Thanks again.
  20. Hello community, I have been watching video after video (some old and some new) and reading up and down. I'm trying to figure out, along with looking for guidance on how I should proceed, in making, building, planning for adding singing faces. I have currently only used incandescent lights with CTB16PC's to control two different 8 line each faces. I plan to build one or two matrix's which I have been told I can add "virtual" type singing faces to. Similar to doing the same a mega tree. 1) Is this an option? I have only mainly found videos on importing and setting up singing faces on the LOR props(the four different singing trees for example) which leads me to question 2) if I have a prop I made and/or from another vendor, can I simply use a picture of that prop or build that prop? I believe I watched a video on this. Ultimately, I would like to use the two matrix's instead as two different singing props. This also gives me the flexibility to play videos and display pictures, along with freeing up space where the physical singing props are. 3) If I am using the matrix's can you add singing elements to anything? Say a picture of Jack Skellington, or Frosty the snowman, and are there any defaults provided or available anyplace or any good tutorials/videos on this? Lastly, will I need to have SS and/or S5 to do this? If I do need SS, would I only need a license with enough pixels to cover the two matrix's? I would be ok still using Pixel editor to control all other elements of my show, and just using SS for the Matrix's, is that an option? Really appreciate any info the time anyone takes to assist. This is lots of time the hardest part, figuring out WHAT you can do, IF you can do, and HOW to do. Thanks! Dave S4 Pro Pixel Editor
  21. Thanks JR, I’ll take a look at that. Appreciate it
  22. A matrix with 282 pixels per output (846 channels) is made in preview prop. It has 10 strings 282 pixels per, and 5 folds. How do I handle the “carryover”? Should I be using individual start channels or separate universe # for each string, or both? This is being setup on a Falcon f16v3. Using S4. Any Idea advice? Thanks!
  23. I’m having a very similar issue on S4 also. I’ve tried matrix option, lines connected, unconnected, and even making a group. I’ve changed starting points also. Nothing. If I figure it out I’ll let you know.
