  1. We need a nested stars option.
  2. This is for Brian, When double click on an older .sup file to open, when Superstar is not open, it kills the program. (Screen Snip is attached. These are last year's files. It may be that I'm trying to open from Dropbox. However, when I open these from within the LOR folder, they open fine. It may just be that the software is looking for the LOR folder. It did not do this last year when the same procedure was used. It's not a problem, I can open it fine from the SS menu, it's just annoying. Just something to look at for next year. Yes, I'm still using 4.4. I might t
  3. Question, S5 related. I will have a minimum of 3 sup files to get into the S5 Sequencer for each 2018 sequence. Copy and paste did not work as expected. Have I missed something? When I create a blank sequence, I import the lms file from the SS export. How do I get the other data in the blank sequence?
  4. Thanks. My P10 Panels are complete except for the enclosure. I used Darrell Pelligrin's, CFOL P10 PiHat. I have one of Ron's for a backup.
  5. My SS is at 160 License. I can actually use SS, but mostly for Tune To info. I was thinking of doing a 2 panel x 2 sides using P5 panels for Tune To info and using the P10 for effects and maybe Video. All but the Tune To info will need to be done in the S5 sequencer though
  6. Will this work? https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cduiclqsk4kbvm1/AACZG9mGHkKCsZo1HJe5cW2Wa?dl=0
  7. That's how I was planning on doing it Doug. Sequence in Superstar, Export to SE, then import to S5 Sequencer. Tweak, Save and Run. The P10 panels are going to be where I need either S5 or xLights. You know me though, LOR through and through. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  8. Yeah, that seems to be where I'm going to be stuck. Since my display will change for 2018, either I can't figure out how to convert multiple files in one sequence, or the program just won't do it. Plus, I can't seem to get the effect I want on the ChromaFlake Tree/Pyramid. I will probably stay with S4 and go to the PE to do a few things that I, either can't accomplish in SS or want an element level effect. Jim, when I opened my ChromaFlake Tree/Pyramid in S5 and SS, it didn't look right. Maybe I was doing something wrong, I don't know.
  9. OK Doug, I'm installing S5 on the PCs. I may be giving you a call when we get our displays down. I might even make a road trip down on a Saturday to get some one on one help. We'll need to set something up. I'll have a few questions to start, then try to dig into it.
  10. When I installed 4.3.26, I cannot get the pixel editor to open. Is it still included with 4.3.26? My 2 other machines have 4.3.24 on them and the pixel editor opens just fine. Going to drop back down to .24 on this machine and see if I can open it then. I will report back here either way. Un-installed 4.3.26 and installed 4.3.24. PE will still not open on this machine. Everything else starts opens up fine. Any Ideas?
  11. Tomorrow's the day. See you all in the morning.
  12. I want the original CCR Super Star Rings, Dennis.
  13. Yep. There's always somebody wanting to buy or sell.
  14. This video is about 2 years old and there's no audio, but I believe it will get you what you want to accomplish.
  15. Tennessee Fall Mini All are invited, not just the folks from TN. We’ve had folks from GA, NC, SC, FL, AL and even once, someone from New Zealand. WHEN: Saturday, September 17, 2016 WHERE: Cleveland, TN (Just north of Chattanooga off of I-75) 3787 Blue Springs Road in Cleveland, TN TIME: TBD (usually 9 am – 4 pm) We’ll take up $$ for lunch, usually pizza. Most of us are nearing the finished product for the season, so really, any topic is up. The Fall Mini is usually, not as structured as the Spring Mini, but we still learn a lot. Topic
  16. The best way to figure out where to inject power is this: String up however many pixels you have on the element, turn them on 100% intensity, white, where they start to dim or get a reddish or muddy yellow, (kind of like warm white) that's the point where you inject. Don't worry about how many, just where the hue changes. You can back inject also. This is how people are getting 100 or so pixels per run. I "t" the power in just like the ground. This way, all pixels get the power they need. Edit: To give a good visual reference, watch this: http://blog.holidaycoro.com/20
  17. Isn't it illegal to do something like this. I mean, in essence, they're charging for their show, and isn't that a no-no. I've always been of the mindset, if you can't afford a hobby, don't start it. I do agree though, it needs to be on a go-fund-me instead.
  18. Well said Mike. Even though we've had our differences in the past, it's that, the past. So, all that being said, Do we have something new on the horizon? Sorry, I couldn't resist.
  19. Same thing, use the desktop and install Team viewer on your machine and phone or tablet. Basically all you are doing is bringing your desktop screen out to your phone. It's a bit behind, but during testing, that should not be a problem.
  20. Why don't you just use Team Viewer. You can access a desktop or laptop from your phone or tablet. I found it to be very useful last year, and it's free.
  21. Jerry, I've been wondering the same thing. The original post also had the PE incorporated into the sequence editor, instead of a separate program. Something like, when in the SE, click on the PE icon and it opens up. make the effect, and it goes straight into the SE. Didn't happen like that. Also, to use the PE, at least the last time I messed around with it, it would only output as an intensity file. This is the one of the reasons I don't use it, even though I have the Pro software. The reason being, sometimes I need to make changes in certain elements, specifically, text on the 2nd pixe
  22. Just install over the existing software. No need to un-install the previous version.
  23. I believe you are. To create an arch of say 24 pixels, (what I use) you would do 1 segment with 24 pixels or 2 segments with 12 pixels. I use 1 and 24. Unless I'm misunderstanding what your asking.
  24. For those of you wondering why Brian has not answered this post, He emailed me with the answer to my query. Ron, First of all, sorry I haven't answered your question on the forums about moving the position of an image, I can't get the forums to come up on my computer. Do they work for you? To answer the question, there is not a direct way to move an image in the grid, but there is an indirect way. 1) Add an image to the image list 2) Make the image a part of an Image Action 3) Select "Apply x,y in preview (for animations)" 4) Set some valu
