  1. Late in the season but a neighbor girl asked why I didn't have it. jonback@gmail.com
  2. No common (third wire) is needed for RS485.
  3. Adobe Premiere Elements 12 handles AVCHD video easily, straight from the SD cards of my Canon camcorder. If you pay more than $100 you are bad shopper.
  4. I noticed that it was about 6 days between first post to resolution. If you had mentioned that you were running on a Mac first, you might have gotten a faster fix. There are enough people running LOR SE on Macs that I hesitate to call them non-standard, but the responses you got were primarily from PC/Windows users (as am I) so they were not going to help much. Glad you got it figured out. I've moved all my LOR SE S3 sequences onto a Falcon Pi Player (running on a Raspberry Pi computer) and merged my LMS files with xLights/Nutcraker data. While it is running well, it is definitely non-
  5. Uh, Oh - this is no longer accurate. The latest version of xLights/Nutcracker (3.2.7) can now export (to a Clipboard file) just the specific Model that you pick. This makes for much smaller clipboard files, therefore much less lag and "crashing" http://nutcracker123.com/nutcracker/releases
  6. won't let me edit my link. http://nutcracker123.com/nutcracker/releases/
  7. Of great interest to those of you creating LOR S3 clipboard files to paste into your sequences: The newest version of xLights/Nutcracker (Nov 15, ver 3.2.7) at http://www.nutcracker123.com/nutcracker/releases now allows you export a specific Model only. It used to export all the channels, but now it is just the channels defined in the Model definition. This makes the clipboard file much smaller.
  8. That was my matrix at The Academy and Sean used it as a display during his presentation. At that time, it was 120x32. Too wide. Too short. Rebuilding to 72x54. A lot of cuts and soldering left to go. Jon
  9. SS, to do effective video, your matrix will need a few more rows. A resolution of 50x14 is not optimum. A 4x3 ratio is better, so 50x37 is closer. (Mo' money, Mo' money) I have an existing 40x24 matrix and it should still be 6 rows taller. I've tried video using Nutcracker and it is OK but still isn't quite right. Still working on my 72x54 matrix. It should be much better. 8ft by 6ft if I ever finish it. Nutcracker can do video but is also very easy for moving pictures across a matrix. You do have resize the graphic yourself, though.
  10. I work the other direction. For my non-RGB stuff (about 400 channels) and for some small RGB stuff (window frames), I use LOR S3 latest version. But, I have some big RGB items. Two Matrices. One is a 40x24 horizontal matrix. It is fully functional and I've used it a lot and recently for Halloween. I also am finishing a 72x54 horizontal matrix. Both are too big to handle in LOR normally. So, rather than create my Matrix effects and pasting into LOR, I am doing all my normal work in LOR, then saving it as the normal LMS file. Then, in xLights/Nutracker, I convert it from LMS to XSEQ format
  11. The other question would be, how did it get changed to something other than 5568? That is the default value on every platform.
  12. This was two years ago. Some pixels. Reworking this year with more pixels. https://vimeo.com/17977760 Jon
  13. I thought I'd crashed when I converted 10,000. It did finish, though.

    smart rgb strips

    The 3 leds per pixel is what bothers me. The TM1809 strips can run at 1 led per pixel. 12volt and 3-wire like the ws2811
