  1. No, you're not missing anything. But there is a way to save the colors. After changing the colors to what you want but before you do your sequencing, click on the File menu and select "Save As" and save it to a name like "MyColors." Then the next time you come in you can click on the File menu and select "Open" and you can open that file.
  2. Superstar supports a maximum width of 360. There is not a way to make one row that is 700 nodes wide. What I would suggest is the following: create your group as 3 strings, each being it's own row. So you end up with 3 rows on the sequencing grid In instant sequence, set TCM 1 to "rapid fire" trigger type in "Row assignments to TCM" set row 1 to TCM 1 and set the other 2 rows to "none" set movement to "Right multi-row" click on the "timing map" button and set row 1 to "all freqs" Click on "sequence all" or "sequence selection." It should create some effects t
  3. Are you saying the text appears backwards when playing from the Sequence Editor to your actual lights? If so, make sure the visualization matches your actual light display. For example, if it is a horizontal matrix and the strings on your actual display start on the left, make sure the strings in your visualization start on the left.
  4. If you only have A/C controllers you may want to uninstall S5 and install S4.
  5. To launch superstar from the S5 Sequencer you need to do it from a motion effect row, and to have motion effect rows you need the Pro license. Do you only have A/C controllers, or do you have pixels also?
  6. When importing the visualization what do you have set for the sequencing grid max rows? You can try increasing the setting. When importing the visualization what orientation do you have set? If you have "horizontal," try "vertical." If you have "vertical," try "horizontal."
  7. To launch SuperStar from the sequencer requires a Motion Effect Row. Motion Effect rows require a Pro License... Motion Effect Rows were selected to make the interface between Sequencer and SuperStar as fast and efficient as possible.
  8. That is a definite possibility. After turning off that feature let me know if the problem goes away.
  9. Hmmm. One theory is that because of the large file size it takes time for the file to get written out and the file doesn't close before things are passed to the Sequencer. I save the file and then close down superstar but maybe the operating system saves the file in a separate thread. I will look to see if there is a way in the program to wait until the file has finished saving.
  10. It is not a license issue. For what it is worth, for the 16CCR license and above it actually allows one more CCR than the license level. As for the "The process cannot access the file" error you are getting, I'm not sure why it is happening. It is behaving as if superstar didn't let go of the file after passing it to the sequencer.
  11. Sounds good to me. You can of course do one and see how it works out.
  12. I am sorry, I didn't read the steps carefully, it might be safest if I remote into your computer and exactly what your situation is. I want to make sure we do this correctly. Send me an email at brian@superstarlights.com
  13. I googled "setting documents folder location" and got the following: Windows 10 Click the [Windows] button > choose "File Explorer." From the left side panel, right-click "Documents" > choose "Properties." Under the "Location" tab > type "H:\Docs" Click [Apply] > Click [No] when prompted to automatically move all files to the new location > Click [OK]. If you believe you have documents saved in C:\Docs, you can go to that location and manually copy the files to your H:\ drive.
