  1. Confession: I’m a ‘newbie’ to LOR, so bear with me. QUESTION: Is there a way to import/copy/migrate a ‘Legacy’ Sequence Editor Sequence (.lms/.las)/Channel Configuration (.lcc) into S4 Super Star Sequencer (.sup)/Visualizer (.lee)? Three years ago, we purchased Cottage Charm @ The Romack House, which included a LOR Christmas Light Show (2007 TSO Mix, 2007 TSO Wizards in Winter, 2007 Sing-A-Long Mix) which had previously run for ~7 years. The purchase included: LOR software (last update ~2008, version unrecalled), 5 musical sequences, 5 LOR controllers, FM transmitter, ~18k incandescent min
  2. I know its last minute.... but i have 2 songs done for my show this year... and I would really like to have more... its has almost taken me 6 weeks just to program these 2 songs.. its only my second year and I am still having trouble programming songs... if anyone here is able to help me with some programming, i would really appreciate it.. I know this is alot to ask, but if i could send you the layout of my channels, and you can program any song you have with it.. Of courseI can pay for your help through paypal or direct deposit... whatever works best for you.... from what i have heard

  4. So, I have a u MP3g3 mini-director, which is great....but, I have to use either the Simple Show Builder or the HWU to write my sequences to the SD card. Both of these applications are extremely weak for building a show. Neither lets you save a show to come back and edit it later - you have to build a show from scratch each time. Also, they don't let you add the same sequence multiple times, such as a voice-over announcement. Why not let us use the Show Editor, as well, to write to the SD Card. I feel like we are being punished for purchasing this extra hardware from you to run our show.
  5. Brian, SSS v4.2.10 SSS does not save window positions or configurations. I am fortunate to have 3 monitors on my system to spread things out to work. When I open SSS, it places everything in the main window. When I open dialog windows it also places them generally on the right bottom quarter of the SSS main dialog. See attachment 1 (3MonitorLayout.png). I then select floating windows and proceed to move everything around on 2 of the monitors leaving the 3rd for other applications. Every time I open the SSS, open/new a sequence or even load a new visualization it resets the window posi
  6. Hello, I just working on 4 singing Christmas trees. and almost ready. We build them whit 12mm rgb leds. (it hurts on your eays) Now i buy 2 segences files and i am bussy to make one. Please would you send me some files! We want to show the American syle here in the Netherlands. They only put some light in the garden and thats it. Tanks, Mark SEQ-SCTCHRISTMASCANCAN-mark.lms
  7. I saw a few old posts on this topic back in 2012, but I didn't think resurrecting a zombie thread was appropriate... I was wondering if there was a way to a hierarchy to the layers of effects. It would be VERY handy in animations to have one layer completely over power a lower layer (think of the new years eve ball sliding down a pole, where the pole is one image, and the ball is another). Ideally, i'd like to declare the ball (in this example) as being on top, and completely overwrite whatever color is being shown on a pixel that represents the pole, as that ball slides down. I could
  8. Dual monitor support, ie, expanding the sequencing grid and visualizer sections to accommodate visualization on one screen and sequencing grid on the other. Export of more than 1 Intensity file from Superstar to Sequence Editor Higher CCR license, 60 is the max now, talk of 120 CCR in the passed year.There has been hints at all three of these over the passed year. I was just wondering if we might see any of these this year or next year. The higher Max CCR limit is not really a big deal right now as it would most likely be used for whole display morphs from R-L or up-down. This might be acco
  9. When creating a matrix of DMX smart RGB Pixels in the visualizer, the option to "create the minimum number of fixtures" creates FULL universes of 170 pixels. (The other 2 options are even less desirable). I am trying to create a flag which is 48 X 24 pixels, and is evenly divided into 8 universes of 144 pixels each. (which allows it to be easily split into 4 pieces for storage) In the fixture properties for the universes it creates, the number of pixels is locked and cannot be selected or edited. This is not a problem in the Matrix Wizard of the Preview editor of the Pixel editor - it allo
  10. Hello there. I have purchased few A/C controllers and really enjoyed my first season. Now its time for new ideas and one display i keep seeing on you tube is the front a house all lit up and the sections of lights move down the string in small blocks. I am wondering how this effect is done. thanks
  11. Hi I am a newbie to the LOR family and I am thinking of buying a starter kit. I have one question though, can we purchase the controller units with AS/NZ standard 10 or 15 amp 3 pin plugs?
  12. Not sure if I am in the correct forum, but here is my question: I am planning to do a Virtual Reality Santa in a window. I have a two story home and I am planning to do it in an upstairs window. I would like to control when the Virtual Santa is showing. Therefore I am trying to figure out is there a way to have the Santa in the window controlled through a channel in my sequencing. One of my challenges is the location of the Virtual Santa, running data wires etc. to connect to one of my controllers. I do have a set of the Wireless Data Easy Linkers. I also realize that having the proje
  13. Does anyone remember and/or know where I can get that opening startup sequence that shows lights turning on and shorting out with sounds a someone running around switching plugs and resetting breakers until all lights come on and music kind of comes together? Saw it a few years back and always loved it!
  14. Brian, I just thought of something today. I don't recall this anywhere, but that's not to say it's not out there. How hard would it be to drop in an option in the code to select if using 2 monitors. With that option, the sequencing grid on one monitor and the visualizer on the other. I know the entire bottom section would need to be expanded to accept a larger visualizer, but it would be a great option. Just a random thought.
  15. Looking to see if I can run S3 via Windows emulation s/w (VMWare, Parallels, etc.). I do not want to run dual boot (bootcamp). I support Windows machines all day and about a dozen Macs, 50 iPads and over 100 iPhones. I am a Apple nerd. Any input is welcome. The ideal solution is LOR to embrance the Apple device world and publish a Mac OS X / iOS version. Wouldn't a iPad S3 and / or controller extension be awesome. I see a lot of potential. Oh yea, one more no - I will not be buying a Surface Pro to run LOR (or anything for that matter). Windows 8 is a... well perhaps my opinion doe
  16. Total noob who just bought 2 controllers and a starter package at the mad-grab sale. So, this is how I ended up here... A long time ago I saw a beer commercial (Lowenbrau, Heineken, Corona?) that had Christmas lights synchronized to music. I thought that was the coolest thing ever! I figured the person who did that was some kind of genius. Probably a rocket scientist or maybe a warlock. I've always done a static light display at Christmas and although it wasn't great, my neighbors were generally impressed. Full disclosure: my neighbors are easily impressed. They had little to compare it
  17. Kudos Light-O-Rama for listening to your client base and soon, giving us a lot of the requests we have been asking for. That being said, I have a few requests for the visualizer. There was utility that was created for the visualizer by Vfere863 (Victor) found in this post: http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/26528-rgb-pixel-utility/ and was a great addition to the tools some of us use. Although not supported by LOR, it made creating Non-LOR fixtures a breeze. There were a few enhancements made throughout Victor’s evolution of this utility, which is what I will mention in this pos
  18. Hello all. Question? I want to run a wireless setup with the mini Director. I made generic diagram below of what I was thinking and would like to know if it was posible somehow. Here is the standard setup What I want to do is get rid of the hard wire between the mini director and the controllers. like this
  19. Hi all, we are going to be having a very big NYE show .. Fog machines, strobes, intimidators etcetera. I was wondering if anyone had any Rock, Techno, NYE related or any type of sequences that aren't Christmas .. That they would be willing to share with me? This would be greatly appreciated. My email is superman_74@me.com
  20. would it be possible to add export function to s3 that keeps audio file with seq so i don't have to rejoin the two every time i move one seq from one pc to show pc
  21. I have built a 14 row by 50 column array with LOR CCP's and used SuperStar to do its basic animation. I asked LOR through a Help Desk question, if they knew of any way, software or hardware interface, display a video sequence on the array. They recommended that I go to the forum. I found several discussion on projecting a video file to a projector and synchronizing with a show but nothing about this topic. Does anyone know of anything that could move me in this direction of will I have to go to another vendor for the video wall?
  22. The following was copied from a post by Tim Fisher. I like Tim and many others are tired of spending MANY MANY hours updating channel configurations! 1) I've literally been asking for this since LOR 1.0. But it's even more important today: "We need a better way to handle changes in channel configuration". Back when I had <200 channels, it was a PITA to have to go through 10 or 20 sequence just because I decided it would be more convenient to plug something into one controller instead of another. Now that I have about 4800 channels, it's not just inconvenient, it pushes me to the verge
  23. What would be a nice feature to have, is the ability to add marks or some other type of user setable identification inside the sequencing grid. I have a 3 string CCP star ontop of my ribbon tree. I prefer to have all 150 blocks of the sequencing grid on one row for morphs and such. Currently, I have 2 yellow stickies on my monitor to show me where the break points are so I don't have to count for every scene and morph I set up.
  24. I wished the ss would bump up from 3600 channels because I have 4833 channels and I have to do the same song 2 times with half my channels then the rest throw it to sequence editor then copy paste into 1 to make 1 sequence would save a lot of trouble and time thanks regards JOHN F. one reason I ask this is because when I try to load both sequences in editor on 3.10.8 (of which I inputted on beta forum)before I start to copy paste editor crashes
  25. So I did my first LOR show last year with a 16 ch controller. It went over very well with about 30 people showing for opening night. This year I took advantage of the sales and picked up 3 more controllers. My big addition for the year is going to be a 10' Spiral Tree. What I cant figure out is how many strands of lights to use. I don't have a huge budget, so I plan on using Multi color LED Wide angle mini lights rather than solid strands of each color. I just cant figure out what is a good amount of strands to use. Will 16 strands work or should I use more? TLDR 10' Spiral Tree with Mult
