  1. To my knowledge, only S5 is being tested for Windows 11 capability (with success) since S4 has not been the main version for over four years.
  2. This is exactly the schedule my family's display uses - it repeats every 30 minutes (the display is located really close to main streets and constant traffic flow is not an option). I use a spreadsheet to calculate the times, and leave a 2 second buffer each half hour to account for whatever miscellaneous lag is bound to happen. I also set the option in the Show Editor to load all the sequences prior to the show as needed. I'll run that as a test before premiere day, see how many seconds it takes (usually 13 or 14), then set the start time to that much earlier (like 5:29:47). We've opted for signage in the yard that explains when the next show is (every half hour) instead of a Voiceover.
  3. If I understand what you're asking, try using a Pinwheel or spinner effect and see if that does the trick.
  4. For my family's display, we have to have a gap because we're too close to main streets and the traffic backs up (then we get in trouble with the city). Plus people really like getting out and taking pictures with all of the lights on as a backdrop. We have a gap between shows, BUT we have an audio message along with it (recorded in Audacity) that explains why we have the gap and the schedule for when the shows DO play. We've been running for 12 years and we've gotten less than a dozen complaints about our system - people understand once they visit the display and see where it's located compared to the main streets. Moral of the story, every situation is different - you need to do what works best for you.
  5. Just in case you find you need more information... this should help:
  6. Here are all of my RGB tutorials - hopefully they help! https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5dKqcprhEGxz669BDoVmOWnORhUZDgeM
  7. This is a great page to read if you're brand new! https://www1.lightorama.com/basics/
  8. Hey new users! Looking for real time help with Light-O-Rama? Every Tuesday evening October-December we'll be holding a live Q&A on Zoom. Look for reminder posts and the zoom room link each week in "Important Announcements!"
  9. Now that we've reached October, the LOR Community Zoom Room will be open every Tuesday evening for the rest of the year from 9:00-10:30pm Eastern, with different prompts for questions each week. There are no formal presentations in these sessions and they are not recorded - this is an open forum to get answers to your questions and problems solved in real time without worry that your "basic question" will live on forever on YouTube. On Tuesday, October 5, the focus of the evening will be about Superstar Sequencing! There are numerous tutorials available on YouTube, but this session can help fill in the gaps: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0VGELDhWAqiAmbQQpbJ7HU477ZOdB9Qx We will be joined by Brian Bruderer (the developer), and numerous other Superstar masters. If you're new to Superstar, come get your questions answered, and if you're a seasoned pro, please come join us and share your knowledge! https://zoom.us/j/92255626716 One tap mobile +12532158782,,92255626716# US (Tacoma) +13017158592,,92255626716# US (Washington DC) Dial by your location +1 253 215 8782 US (Tacoma) +1 301 715 8592 US (Washington DC) +1 312 626 6799 US (Chicago) +1 346 248 7799 US (Houston) +1 669 900 6833 US (San Jose) +1 929 205 6099 US (New York) +1 204 272 7920 Canada +1 438 809 7799 Canada +1 587 328 1099 Canada +1 647 374 4685 Canada +1 647 558 0588 Canada +1 778 907 2071 Canada
  10. Here's the configuration guide for the tree. If you've done everything in the document and it's still not working, that will help narrow down the problem. https://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/Pixel Tree Configuration.pdf Also yes, to run the tree from the computer, you DO need the Pro license. Specifically 5.5.2 Pro or higher according to the sequence store: https://sequences.lightorama.com/MotionPaks_ep_55.html
  11. My tutorials are not available offline. Unfortunately since they're hosted on my computer, there's no other way for me to make them available to others without using the internet at some point in the process.
  12. https://zoom.us/j/92255626716 Come ask fellow LOR decorators for technical help, or share your own knowledge and ideas with others! The event officially lasts one hour, but may be extended if there are still unanswered questions/conversation when the session is scheduled to end. Breakout rooms may be utilized for personal help or specific topics if there is a high number of attendees. For September, we're focusing on all things pixels! Matt Brown of Light-O-Rama will be joining the session to share information about the Pixielink Adapter: When to use it and how to configure it if you do. All other smart pixel related questions are welcome as well. And since this is a pixel focused session, why not block out this time to push pixels in any new props you have for the year? Turn on your camera and let us have a sneak peak at what's coming up in your display! Zoom Room Q&As will be held the first Tuesday of the month in January-September, and every Tuesday in October-December. Sessions will not be recorded to encourage in-person attendance and comradery. The Zoom room will not be open until meeting begins (you will be asked for a passcode if you try to join early, which does not exist.)

  13. Definitely possible to incorporate. Here you go! https://youtu.be/cKdrer8SvSs - Adding to Preview https://youtu.be/i43JdZFt9pI - Sequencing
  14. You also don't have to fix EVERY timing mark. As long as you get the starts of your phrases lined up, just delete all of the timings in between, then subdivide however many marks were there (like 16). I'm a musician, have been sequencing for 12 years, and teach classes on this method at the Christmas Expo. Works beautifully and accurately. No need to try and tap out to hit the exact beats for every instrument line, and certainly no need to ever touch a fixed timing grid.
  15. Glad to hear it's working out! :) Here's the link just in case!
