  1. Tomorrow's the day. See you all in the morning.
  2. I want the original CCR Super Star Rings, Dennis.
  3. Yep. There's always somebody wanting to buy or sell.
  4. This video is about 2 years old and there's no audio, but I believe it will get you what you want to accomplish.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Just install over the existing software. No need to un-install the previous version.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Yeah Doug, I do that all the time. I would like to be able to move the Image on the Grid, not just the element or prop. If you use scenes or morphs or even smooth effects, you can select Group Modify-->Move Pixels-->add a value in each box (Such as (-5) for up 5 rows, (5) for down 5 rows. Same way with left and right, minus = left and positive = right. Doing this actually moves the colored boxes on the grid as well as the tree, matrix, etc. Using the x ,y just moves where the image shows on the actual tree or matrix. For example, in the following drawings, the top one is the p
  16. I don't think Group Modify will work with Images Doug. It will with scenes, morphs and Smooth effects, but not images. This is what works, but it just moves the image to where you want it to show. I'm wanting to be able to move an image without re-drawing it. Not even sure if it can be done, since images are so different.
  17. Brian, Would it be possible to add a way to move an image up or down or left and right? An example would be to move a group of pixels up or down 1 row. If it's already there, Could you give a bit of instruction as to how to do it? Thanks, Ron
  18. Not because of losing an important structure in the yard, but I re-do my display every year and have to tweak or re-sequence all of mine.
  19. Files sent. As with all new software, it happens. Thanks for the quick reply. Looking forward to this new feature.
  20. Ran into the first problem. I have 2 fully packed props in an imported visualization. Each have in the comments section, "superstar matrixLength=25". Prior to adding this release, all was working well. After installing this release, one of the bursts is fine but the other reverted back to what it was prior to adding the comment "superstar matrixLength=25". It was, 10 columns of 25 pixels. It is now, 6 Columns of 25 pixels, one column of 20 pixels 1 column of 5 pixels and 3 columns of 25 again. It's set up identical to the other as a mirror. Burst # 1 has th
  21. If you come to the TN mini in September, remind me and I'll bring it and show it off.
