  1. I got mine off Ebay last year as well :-) The one I got off Ebay was pretty good quality :-)
  2. PhilMassey thanks for the docx. That did help. Matt I'll take a look at this. Thanks Bottom line is I have put together some sequences using xlights for the .lcp file. I put that into my pixel items. That has worked for years and still does to a certain extent. Then I went away from my house stuff being dumb rgb stuff and went to smart pixels. That added a lot of channels. If did much more than turn them all a certain color, the Showplayer bogged down. I was told to move them to intensity files. They would work better. One sequence transferred fine while another I was working on did not. Keep in mind it was using the same elements. Unfortunately I am out of time to trouble shoot. I borrowed a Lenovo "Carbon X1" laptop from a friend. One of the questionable sequences ran fine with it and the Showtime player. Running a i7 Intel with 8gig ram. It should run fine. Will be testing this later this weekend for a whole night and see how this new laptop does. If it works...I'll forgo the changing everything to PE for now.
  3. ....however. It did strip out the info data (as it said it would) and dropped it into the intensity file. I copied 3 files that were created, put those into the show folder. The props that were stripped out and put into the intensity file would not play on the display. I played it back via the Showtime Player. Ideas?
  4. Ok. Finally got those props into the intensity file. I wish there were some better directions for this.
  5. Ok. I went back and assigned in my preview for this year (in PE) and assigned all the pixel stuff to PE. Then did the remove data under the migration tools. For some reason it is only show an intensity file for 2 props. Any ideas?
  6. Thanks so much. That is not written anywhere that I can find. You would think that they would put that in.
  7. So I have a sequence that was done in SE that is bogging down in playback on the display. I was told to create a intensity file. I see in PE where you can save the intensity data. However I don't see how that is combined with the SE file. I did not sequence this in PE. Have a bunch of pixels though. How can I get a intensity file out of this?
  8. So, I read the power point from the website. Looks like I have to sequence in PE in order to get a intensity file. Is that correct?
  9. Jim I'm going to have to read up on how to import then export. I tried it and all it gave me was another .lms file. I did "Save Intensity Data" and got a file. However, not sure what to do with that. I had it in the folder that the .lms file was in. Compressed the file, made a .lss file and played it back. Still same old thing. I have right at 11,000 channels of dmx and LOR as well running via e1.31. So it does sound like a similar issue. I just don't think I am doing the right thing to get this file back into the Showplayer.
  10. Jim (and anyone else that wants to chime in), Still have one chart that is skipping almost a full second, then catches up with itself. Just finished another sequence that literally lags in the middle of one section then jumps right back into where it should be. I won't retype what I'm doing. However I am running this as a compressed sequence. I've never transferred anything into PE and tried to run it that way. Several other sequences are running just fine. Would transferring it into another type of sequence that LOR would play... would that help and how do I go about it. Honestly am trying to do more sequences (little behind this year) and don't have time to trouble shoot this. I may have to change that part of the sequence just to see if that will fix it, but really not wanting to. Ideas?
  11. Ok Jim that seemed to help. At least that run of it. That was only the pixels. Now I get to add in all the dumb rgb stuff and all the incans. Fingers crossed!
  12. Hey Guys. Thanks for the quick reply. I am running 22 universes right now. Some are maxed out while a few are not. I am running E1.31. From there several of the controllers output the dmx to the controllers that are dmx only. Funny thing is that it is not elements or controllers lagging, the whole show seems to stumble. The only thing I'm doing in PE is to visualize. Not using it to sequence with. Also don't own Superstar.
  13. Running 4.34 PRO S4. Have 960 pixel tree, 1880 pixels on the house, 336 pixels on snowflakes. Running 7 LOR controllers, various dumb rgb controllers, pixcon16, several Sandevices, and one Falcon. I have one file I just tried to run thru SE and it started bogging down midway. Seemed to catch up though towards the end. I have another file that is in the current playlist that actually skips almost 1/2 sec to 1 sec, then catches up. It is running in show console and is compressed. Didn't really want to upgrade at this point since I'm in the middle of running things. However, nothing is showing up in the release notes of improved performance... unless I missed something. Running 4gig ram with Win10. Ideas?
  14. Oh you are so right Old Sarge! I put it on the web today and it wanted to do update after update. Could care less if it works! It's not a "Internet" computer. Sole purpose in life is to run my show!
  15. Oh well, I wiped out the folder that they were being played from (I think / thought), reinstalled from my thumb drive, and they played fine. I also saw that Windows wanted to upgrade ANOTHER time to 1607(?). Anyway, after pointing to the folder on the computer's hard drive, they played fine. Or at least one song did before I shut it down. If nothing else I will have one song to play for Halloween. So maybe it was pointed to the thumb drive? And the thumb drive wasn't in the machine? Either way I should have gotten an error message of sorts if that was the case shouldn't I have? Again, posting this here for future reference for others. Think it is important so when others go to search the forums... they may find there answer before asking. I did... and did not find my answer. :-( Thanks, Robert
