  1. You can use the Movie motion effect in the S5 Sequencer. Or you can use the Picture motion effect with an animated GIF. As mentioned above, lower resolution source material will look better on real lights. Matt
  2. Since the total number of channels isn't changing, I don't think there would be a performance impact. You will need to ensure that there is no channel overlap (conflicts) between the 3 sequences. If they are S5 sequences, this means each sequence needs its own preview. Matt
  3. And here's another variation - dissolve from top down:
  4. @Box on Rails I really like your ideas for enhancing the Hold effect! You can get a dissolve effect (or a dissolve + fade when combined with Phil's suggestion) by combining a Hold effect with a twinkle effect as shown in the attached picture. Matt
  5. Spectrogram data is calculated when a sequence is opened. If you open the 5.6.0 sample sequence, then go into Sequence Information and change Audio Info to "Waveform Only", you will still be able to see the sequence play normally while it is still open. If you close and reopen the sequence, then the Spectrogram related effects will not play because of the state of the Audio Info setting when the file was opened. Similarly, if you change Audio Info back to "Spectrogram High Res", it will not take effect until the sequence is next opened. Matt
  6. If the previous suggestions don't work, try deleting this file: "\Light-O-Rama\LORInternal\sequencerlayout.xml" You are not deleting anything important, just the arrangement of panels/windows within the Sequencer. If that doesn't fix it, please create a ticket with the Help Desk: https://helpdesk.lightorama.com/ Attach this file to the ticket: "Documents\LORSequencer-trace.txt" Matt
  7. Your previews are normally stored under your Documents folder, in a subfolder named "Light-O-Rama\CommonData". The file is "LORPreviews.xml". There is a backup file named "LORPreviews.xml.bak". Matt
  8. The higher CPU usage while a sequence is loading is due to calculations for the spectrogram audio display (which also supplies data to the Audio motion effect). You can turn off spectrogram calculations on a per sequence basis by selecting Sequence > Sequence info and changing the Audio Info field. Beware that changing it to waveform only will also leave most of the Audio motion effect without data. http://www1.lightorama.com/help/sequence_information_dialog.htm Matt
  9. There will be a "Clean Up" button on the Start Page in the next release.
  10. That is a good question. We looked at that approach, but there is a large amount data that would need to be stored. Nevertheless, we will take another look at it. Matt
  11. I assume you are using version 5.6.0? Is your pixel tree assigned to the same unit id in the S4 sequence and the S5 preview? When you upgrade a sequence, does your pixel tree get listed in the Matched or Not Match list? http://www1.lightorama.com/help/upgrading_sequences.htm If it doesn't show up in either list, then the Sequencer isn't finding your Pixel Editor sequence. Pixel Editor sequence files have an ".LPE" extension and must be in the same folder as LMS file. This same requirement existed in S4. Matt
  12. Have a look at page 15 of the PixCon 16 manual. Make sure the terminator jumper is set to the "On" position. http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/Pixcon16 Manual V1.8 - Showtime (S4 & S5).pdf For anyone else reading this message, this advice only applies when running the PixCon16 in LOR mode. Matt
  13. Are you running the PixCon16 in E1.31 or Enhanced LOR mode? If E1.31, do you have any other software that might be sending E1.31 commands? If in LOR mode, what speed are you running? Are there any other controllers on the network? Have you tried changing Cat5 cables? Matt
  14. Wikpedia explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectrogram LOR Help page: http://www1.lightorama.com/help/audio_settings_window.htm
  15. We're glad you like this new feature! Thanks for the feedback.
