  1. freeFileSync free version does have RTS -> RealTimeSync which is a separate small program. It detects additions/updates to folders and then launches FFS to do the copy task. You can turn on RTS when you want or make it a start up task or even set it as a service. (I have not tried that one)
  2. Doh Looks like a Gen2 in the posted picture.
  3. I thought the sale was going thru today? Sept 8. JK I got what I wanted.

    Computer ?

    I have owned several of the ultra small and was satisfied with them TheDucks. I still have one in use running the show for the lights I set up in the kids basement. Interesting you mention a usb CARD. I think the extra USB jacks on this computer are just plugged to the other board making it an internal USB hub.
  5. A PixieLink will also do it. Its like 6 of the Red adapter. This option means you set up your channels with DMX universes.
  6. The zip cord will be very heavy. Dont let its weight pull on the 20ga. Usually a lot easier to mount the controller closer to the prop. You didnt say how many extensions you plan to make?
  7. I looked into this deeper. I am going to take the blame for this error box popping up. In the PapagayoToLOR program I wrote 10 years ago there is a "view" button on the upper right. This generates a file called CompareMouths.html and saves it in the mouths folder. This allows you to see everything at a glance so you know how to handle the face you are working on. Sorry my bad. Please continue to ignore and blame me when you click.
  8. Just ignore that! Its a nothing error. This version of papagayo has folders for the images called mouths. There is a file in the mouths folder somewhere which is not an image. The program only expects images in the image folder and is burping cause it doesnt know how to handle it. The program should just be silent on this error and continue.
  9. Here is to hoping you get back in the seat sooner than you expect JR. I agree there are some good souls on here and we try to take care of each other when we can. In honor of that sentiment.. Krissy Lights I will do the mouth movements to a song for you to get you rolling. Hopefully a song which I can also put in my own shows. (ok I admit I am not as generous as my hero JR on this front)
  10. I failed to mention that papagayo creates 10 mouth shapes. For me this is required since I use a pixel panel which displays all 10 phonemes. There have been times I really wanted to use some of JRs fantastic work but my props just cant display the five. The papagayo to LOR program is where the 10 get reduced to 5. There is definitely some art to this because some props will look better with the top and middle paired and others with the middle and bottom paired. Also your prop may have a very low bottom lip so you may want to assign the rest to the middle lip or even the top instead of the bottom.
  11. Sorry I have been away from the forums for a bit. There is so much to say about papagayo. Who ever said papagayo can only do one voice! It can do unlimited voices in the same file I think Papagayo is MUCH easier than trying to do it by hand! That is just crazy and my friend JR is crazy plus two to try and convince people to think otherwise! (You know I love you babe!) Being able to tweek the papagayo is a plus for sure and not a minus. Please think of papagayo sort of like superstar in that the effects are stored in another file and you generate the sequence. SO you can go back to the papagayo and adjust it and then rebuild it. This has GOT to be easier than listening and tweaking the channels! I have used all the versions and still swap back and forth on occasion. The how to videos are very old and so am I, I mean so is papagayo. There is some good news for next year because papagayo has been rewritten to have more features including auto word detection in the media! Please PM me if you have a particular problem or if you want some free tutoring. My most fervent and important and critical advice that you cant miss is to CONFIRM by looking in the file that you are 100% certain you are using 25FPS And that you get EVERY SINGLE sound or word written down before you start sliding anything. That means every oh hmm whap and sound you want a mouth movement for. You really should listen multiple times to get them all for sure. Then you hit the button.
  12. There are other notables Jim didn't mention LightORamaJohn Board and Product designer tech guru. LightORamaChuck Chuck Smith Of Planet Christmas fame. LORAdmin The 'report' button goes here known as Don when not wearing the LOR hat.
  13. Thanks Orville Yes like you I want to extend the lead a little on a my 'last few' strings. I think I owe you a shipment of CCB plugs too. Sorry I had forgotten about that. Lets continue this on PM.
