  1. Our goal is for this to be a place for conversation and real time questions. If we turn these Zoom calls into classes, we spiral into having to record them for people who can't make it, and once people realize the sessions are being recorded, many won't bother to show up at the scheduled time (the main issue with VCS). As JR said, there are tutorials online for many subjects; if there's a group that wants to put together virtual classes on a different evening, I would certainly support it, but for now we're going to keep these Tuesday night meetings a non-recorded troubleshooting Q&A.
  2. Based on the supply chain issues that every vendor in the industry is having, I wouldn't expect an additional sale beyond the summer sale.
  3. Fair point, but the other side of that is 9pm -10pm eastern is pretty late. If it appears that it's mostly Pacific time people wanting to be on the call though, shifting the call time is definitely open for discussion.
  4. Definitely. Plenty of time to get those done by Christmas. There are links to tutorials in my signature if you need help!
  5. Depends on how intricate you want to be. Sequencing RGB is a different way of thinking. It's not impossible, it just takes time. You're in a great place with it only being March.
  6. Technically the easiest would be for you to buy sequences - if you want the LOR store sequences, you need the Pro license level. If you're getting ones from Superstar Lights, there should be more info on the site about what you need.
  7. Depends on if you want to use the Sequencer or Superstar to create effects for your pixels.
  8. Don't add the RGB controller. Add it as a matrix prop - I promise the configuration aspect in the software will be much easier.
  9. Don't add a controller - add the matrix as a prop (top option in the menu). Even though you can add LOR devices as an option for the preview, it's rarely an option you actually need to use now that you can build prop based shapes in S5.
  10. You should just be able to add the built in matrix prop shape that comes natively with the Preview Editor - is there something specific that's going wrong?

  12. If you're brand new to Light-O-Rama (or even have a few years under your belt), consider attending the Virtual Christmas Summit this April 10 and 11 via Zoom, free of charge! I (Aubrey Kall) will be the room host for the majority of the LOR classes, and am in charge of coordination for the LOR presentation schedule for this conference. 12 presenters have graciously agreed to share their knowledge by way of 17 classes over the course of two days, including LOR developers Matt Brown and Brian Bruderer. (See the schedule here: http://www.virtualchristmassummit.com/schedule) When you register, be sure to select that you're an LOR User so you're entered into the raffle drawings for LOR prizes! http://www.virtualchristmassummit.com/register If you have any questions you can't find answers to on the website, just respond to this thread or send me a PM! :)
  13. Or if you're saying it's an AC Arch with 8 sections (8 channels), you would just type an 8 in the segment field of the prop definition window.
  14. In the main preview tab, check out the "bulb" shapes - that might solve some of your issue, as will grouping props together before making height/width adjustments. Very curious how you are building props in excel though! Can you share?
  15. Sounds like you exported the grid configuration when you needed to export the preview. Go to your preview in the right hand popout tab and right click - fourth option down is "Export." You can also select it (again in that right side popout) and click the icon with the left facing green arrow. However, you really shouldn't have to export the changes unless you're switching computers. Any sequence that references that file will have the changes.
  16. A preview and a grid configuration are different things - which one did you export?
  17. I am one of the admins for that group. The group overwhelmingly voted that the group be changed to private status so that their Facebook friends who were not in the group did not constantly see every time they commented on a post. Now that it's private, it cannot go back to public status. There are no Facebook groups run by LOR employees - they are all user groups (which is explained in all of the group descriptions). The official Light-O-Rama PAGE is the only thing actually sponsored by LOR.
  18. You're correct in that they're called beat channels. When you imported the sequences, there should have been a place where you told S5 what to do with your blank channels, and it sounded like you told them to archive instead. If you go into your archive menu now, you can actually add them back as beat channels instead of recreating them from scratch.
  19. Here are more tutorials if you need them! :) https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5dKqcprhEGzU-VBD4IkPlEkDtpYoptwo
  20. The CCR-II and Pixie II controllers are the same thing. The names have evolved overtime and I might still be thinking it's listed as the original name from when it first released. Moral of the store, it has two ports - that's what's important to know. LOR does not sell AC channel singing trees (but other vendors do and you can use standard 16 channel LOR controllers with them). LOR's trees are all pixels - that's what the motion paks control.
  21. The 16 channel starter package DOES work with singing trees - the AC channel singing trees. They probably recommended the simpler non-pixel system if this is your first year. If you want the singing trees specifically from LOR's website, those come with their own pixel controllers called CCR-IIs.
  22. Just as a side note to this conversation, upgrade to 5.5.10. Version 5.5.8 had a significant bug and was recalled shortly after release.
  23. What specifically have you been doing when it crashes? That will help the developers pinpoint a potential cause for the issue.
  24. Hey Jeff, I don't use Superstar, but I get that message all the time when I'm sequencing pixels with the Sequencer. I never need to hit save first, it just means I tried to hit play too quickly before the Sequencer had time to catch up with me. I'm on 5.5.8 too and was working with pixels today without issues. It totally could be a bug, but try waiting until the orange circle by the preview name stops spinning before you press play and see if that fixes it.
  25. Those look like curtain effects - "Close then open"
