  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. We do hope to add this feature at some point, but can't promise a date. Matt
  8. @Steven I'm glad you like the feature. The zoom level of the playback window is saved with each grid view in the sequence file. In the next release, a change to the zoom level will mark the sequence as modified (asterisk in front of the file name shown on the tab), and you will get prompted to save the sequence when you close it. Matt
  9. The list of items shown in a grid view is actually organized as a tree. By default, when you expand a branch of the tree, the higher level branches are hidden, leaving just the lowest level visible. In S4, this was the only way items were displayed. In the S5 Sequencer, you can choose to hide the upper branches (like S4) or not. Sometimes displaying the higher level branches makes the hierarchy clearer. You can toggle between the 2 display modes by selecting "Condensed View" from the grid view menu. http://www1.lightorama.com/help/grid_view_menu.htm Hope that helps, Matt
  10. If you use "Hide item", then the selected prop or group is removed from the current grid view. To add it back, either: 1) right click on any name to the left of the grid and select "Insert Preview Props and Groups", or 2) click the grid view button and select "Append Items to View". http://www1.lightorama.com/help/grid_view_menu.htm Matt
  11. See the "Creating a Custom Subsection" section on this help page: http://www1.lightorama.com/help/motion_effect_rows_dialog.htm Matt
  12. I have certain items plugged into a USB-controlled relay (you can find them on Amazon). I have an "Equipment On" sequence with a Windows command that turns on the relay when my show begins, and a corresponding "Equipment Off" sequence at the end of the show. Just another approach to go along with the suggestions already posted. Matt
  13. Another option is to create your show and schedule using Hub. In Hub, click the "Simple PC Show" button, select your songs, and you are done. http://www1.lightorama.com/help/computer_shows.htm Matt
  14. @cbelt4 have you created a ticket with the LOR Help Desk? https://helpdesk.lightorama.com/ Matt
