  1. We experienced a server issue which was just now fixed. 1) the Sequencer caches online files for 24 hours, so Motion Effect favorites won't automatically refresh on your PC until tomorrow. A work-around is to delete the "\LORInternal\Downloads\MotionEffects\LORFavorites.xml" file before opening the Sequencer. 2) in Preview Design, there are "Refresh" buttons for dialogs that display online content. The content of these dialogs won't automatically refresh until tomorrow; however, if the you press the Refresh button, it will update immediately. Sorry for the confusion.
  2. The download file should be at "\Light-O-Rama\LORInternal\Downloads\MotionEffects\LORFavorites.xml". Its size should be 11K or so. If the file is there, then please create at help desk ticket, zip up the LORFavorites.xml file, and attach the zip file to the ticket. We will be happy to try and resolve it. Thanks!
  3. There is not a way to delete more than one at time, other than using the import function. This is high on our list to fix. I have had remote sessions where I had to delete nearly all 999 DMX entries by hand, so I know your pain. Matt
  4. Unlock the timing grid. Then the timing menu comes up when you right-click. Saves a step. Matt
  5. During playback, you can use the "T" key to insert a timing mark. Under the "Operations" section on the Keyboard Preferences page: http://www1.lightorama.com/help/keyboardpreferences.htm The description for "Apply Twinkle" states "Apply the Twinkle effect to the current selection when not playing back. Insert a timing mark when playback is running." There isn't a shortcut to insert a timing mark when not playing back. Matt
  6. Which xmodel files did you import?
  7. So rather than talking about unit ids, lets just talk about channels/circuits? How many channels are used to control this archway in total? Is each upright a separate channel? Typically I model archways with a side view that is slightly skewed - such that the poles on the far side are visible between the poles on the near side. This should also give you good visibility to the zig-zag lights you have on the sides. Matt
  8. Just to be clear, the OP was talking about this window, not the Comm Listener: Some users don't see this window because they clicked the "Do not show this message in the future" box. Matt
  9. Glad you got it figured out. We design for a minimum screen resolution of 1366x768 (standard laptop screen size), which just fits that popup message. Matt
  10. Do you have them defined as Dumb RGB in the Prop Definition? If so, then no motion rows should be needed (or created). Just use RGB channels. Matt
  11. The XXXX rows are expected when Condensed View is turned off. See the "Condensed Mode" topic on this page: http://www1.lightorama.com/help/item_list.htm The motion rows defined in Prop and Group Definition are treated as defaults to be used on *new* sequences. If you want to use the defaults in an existing sequence, right click on the prop name in the sequence grid, then select Add/Modify Motion Effect Rows from the menu. In the dialog that opens, there is a "Merge Defaults" button on the toolbar that will bring them in. http://www1.lightorama.com/help/motion_effect_rows_dialog.
  12. Thanks Jim for the detailed instructions and feedback. One way to handle this would be to convert File > Save As to a submenu with 2 items on it: 1) Sequence 2) Sequence and External Files. If you choose "Sequence and External Files" then all file references for motion and SuperStar effects get copied to the destination as well. This should handle your case where each song is in a separate folder, as well as where all songs share the same folder. What do you think? Matt
  13. Also, think about where your audience is. My viewers are on the sidewalk or in the street - too close for the eye pick up most whole house effects. If your audience is farther away, then whole house effects make more sense.
  14. Download the sequence attached to the first post in this topic. When you open the sequence file, the preview will be imported at the same time. Open the preview and see how the stakes were modeled. Matt
  15. In Preview Design, click on the gear icon at the end of the toolbar, then select Pixel Labels > Pixel Numbers. This will allow you to see where each pixel is physically located. You will need to zoom in to read the labels. See the "Pixel labels" topic on this page: http://www1.lightorama.com/help/design_tab.htm Matt
