  1. Do you have any custom props? Like maybe a model that was imported from XLights or Boscoyo Studios? I noticed tonight on my pc that it seems the custom props I have imported take forever to load or render when a motion effect is added. It took about 5 minutes just to open a sequence before I could so anything to it.
  2. Thanks Matt. Yeah after I typed the question and kept searching I found that page. Just left it up in case it would help someone else. Thanks
  3. I have imported a model from XLights to S5 (5.5.16) that has 312 pixels. It is modeled in XLights to run off one port. I plan to hook it to an existing Pixie 8 but I’ll need 2 ports since the pixies can only use 170 pixels per port. One can this model (prop) be configured as 2 ports in S5? Or is my thinking right in that the carry over channels will be carried over to the next port? Say the first 170 pixels on port 1 and then the rest (142 pixels) will be automatically carried over to port 2? That way all I would have to do it connect the last 142 pixels to port 2? Thanks in advance. EDIT: I googled it and looked it up on LOR website. It mentions running e1.31 and Pixcons. Does the carry over work on the pixies setup as LOR Enhanced network?
  4. Here is a video what is happening. I had just opened S5 and opened the sequence. Went to the effect and opened it and tried to change it when it crashed. Thanks Matt
  5. I keep having the software crash on me. It started after I upgraded to 5.5.4. I have submitted several error reports. I am trying to get a video of what is happening. But I have text on my mega tree as a "Text" effect. I open up the effect and copy the text. I then click on "TextPE" effect and it crashing instantly. I have had it crash probably 10-12 times now while changing effects (don't think it's all be changing the same effect). And I just had it happen when i just opened the effect and tried to change from "Text" to "TextPE". I opened the software and opened my sequence. Once it rendered everything, I went to the effect I wanted to change. Opened it up, click the effect to change it from "Text" to "TextPE" it crashed. I made a 20 second video of what I am doing when it does it. I can't attached the video as it's too big to post here
  6. This happens to me all the time since the upgrade. So it's not just you Aubrey. You have to click to a different effect and then back to the one you want or just click the same effect again. Then the options will show up. I'm not on the software for more than 2 hours or so at a time and so I wouldn't say that I am on the software a long time. But this happens to me also.
  7. I have had LOR crash probably 7 or 8 times since upgrading Thursday. I have submitted the tickets through the software and also just submitted one through LOR website. Mine crashing when I am trying to change effects. This morning when it crashed I had text on my mega tree as the "Text" effect. I went to change it to "TextPE" and the software crashed. Never had this issue before I upgraded.
  8. Thank you. That will be so much better.
  9. Also I just tried to see what would happen if you went bigger than 1 second timings. Like 1.5 seconds. Not sure why you woood ever want to do that but when I did, the 1 second marks were still there. So there needs to be a way to turn that feature off. And yeah on the AC side, the background is grey and timing marks are black. Then you throw in a white, 1 second mark and it makes it hard to see. Especially when you have white in the sequence.
  10. Yeah to me it’s harder to see since that is the first thing I see when I look at the sequence. It’s not as bad on the pixel stuff with the black background. But most of what I do is AC for now and it’s annoying and harder for me to focus on what I’m sequencing since it stands out so much. And I know some people (yourself included) will like it. I would like an option to turn that off.
  11. I have been using S5 since last year. I upgraded to the newest 5.5.0 version. I notice there are white timing marks every second. All the other ones are black. Is there a way to make the second timing marks black? The white stands out to much to me and that is all I see when I look at the sequencer. I know it’s a small detail but I notice small details and this just looks weird to me and makes it harder for me to focus on the actual sequencing. I know some people will like it but for me personally, I don’t like it at all and makes it harder to use. So just wondering if there is a way to make black like all the others. Thanks
  12. Could I get a copy of this? Thanks in advance. My email is joeycain@gmail.com "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share".
  13. Could I get a copy of this please? thanks in advance email is joeycain@gmail.com
  14. I am looking for the Oogie Boogie sequence from Nightmare Before Christmas. I know there are several versions of the song out. I have the 3:17 version (or close to that length). I have the singing faces for it, just not the music part sequenced (I have the mp3 already). Just wondering if anybody has it sequenced and would mind sharing it. I have searched the forums and haven't been able to find it yet. My email is joeycain@gmail.com. Thanks in advance
  15. Thanks. I’ll check into it more. I just know last year I had issues and saw where a lot of people did. I would still prefer to do it manually though. I’ve been working in IT for the last 16 years and I still do a lot of stuff the old way cause its how I know and like and I can see what’s happening and know if one part of something messes up. But I’ll check into doing it with 5.4.2 Thanks, Joey
