  1. I'm having an issue with some (about 8 out of 14) of my songs not syncing up correctly. The difficulty I'm having is that they appear to be synced up perfectly in LOR Visualizer. The lights seem to be firing off about 1-2 seconds too early compared to the music. I've gone through my mp3 files and verified they are at 128Kpbs and at a constant bit rate. It's confusing because almost 1/2 the songs run perfect, and I can't tell what is different about them compared to the ones that aren't working. Any advice you can give is appreciated! My setup: 1 CTB16PCg3 Controller 4 LOR1602Wg3 Controller
  2. Report Number:JMW002 Module: Visualizer Software Version: 4.0.0 OS Version: MS Windows 7 Pro,Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 Description: In the simulation mode/window, all lights/fixtures/props play properly except that they are not in the proper position. All lights are lower on the screen with respect to the picture. This is true for all but I will comment on several. Please see the attached screen shot photo. In the house at the top, the green lines (which actually represent ice cycle strands, appear to be running through the center of the windows. They are setup to run alo
  3. I am going to build a matrix that is 75x14 pixels, with an outline of 150 nodes around the edge. I have it set up in XLights, and I can do it in FPP (I am now testing out FPP to see what I should run my show with). I want to control it with a Pixlite 4. It has four outputs, obviously. I want four of the fourteen lines on one, four on another, four on another, then three. But I don't see how I can set this up, because the visualiser only allows 170 pixels per universe. The Pixlite can have pixels spanning multiple universes, but I know the visualiser can't. Is i
  4. I have saved an intensity file and see it in my Sequence Editor. I configured my layout in Pixel Editor with 4 arches and some simple effects. They play back great in Pixel Editor but no way to see them once in SE. Should I be using Visualizer, import that into Pixel Editor and then save Intensity File. I tried this when experimenting but everything went haywire after changing the props in PE. ie I selected arches and changed their attributes. After an hour of troubleshooting I decided to draw the layout in PE. I appreciate any help. Ron
  5. I have been working with LOR Support for a few days on this and feel I am spinning in my wheels. Perhaps you folks can help. I am planning next year's show and am trying to lay out the lighting I want in Visualizer. I want to use CCBs and CCRs. I am using the CCR Draw Wizard for my eaves. There are two strings (50 bulbs each) for each controller. Support says to add +1 or (PLUS ONE) to the second strand and keep the same Unit ID. Visualizer will not let me do this. I get errors about pixels. Support told me to go to the Hardware Utility and choose Dual Mode. I can't do that because I don't h
  6. Hello.. Ive been working on laying out the hole in pixels but when i try to do a test.. creating random effects in SE and play them nothing happens in the visualizer.. is there some setting im missing for the visualizer to display dmx pixels??? any help would be great running 4.2.10 Pro licence
  7. Since one gateway or controller manages power and controls two 50 light sets I figured the box would use one ID. However, when configuring Visualizer it assigns each set with its own Unit ID. My question is does the gateway/controller support two IDs or am I supposed to manually configure the 100 lights to work from one ID on the gateway/controller? At least my configuration is working in SuperStar. I used CCR Wizard to create rooflines and windows. Thanks for any help offered.
  8. I purchased my LOR toys late in the year (November) and by watching the tutorial videos, lots of trial & error, a couple of calls/emails to support and plenty of dumb luck, I was able to pull off 95% of what I had hoped to do. I would like to be a lot better prepared and a whole lot more knowledgeable heading into next year. I would like to understand the software better (particularly programming the Visualizer for RGB), learn to program for DMX and get a better handle on the hardware and controllers. Where can I go to learn more? Are there classes / seminars available? Lot of good in
  9. We would like the lights to come on at 5;15pm. First show start at 5:30pm. Loop through with 10min breaks Then stop the show at 9pm but still have the lights on till 12am. I run the controller using the uMP3g3. i was hoping i could set it up on a dumb plug in timer like we did our old dumb lights, but im thinking the controller loses it time by power cycling like that? Really dont want to run a PC all the time just for the controller. Any tips to make this happen would be greatly appreciated! Happy Holidays!
  10. I created a new visualization file. The file contains DMX, normal LOR devices and Symbols. When I try to load the visualization into SuperStar it errors and does not function correctly. I've attached the visualization file. Software Version 4.2.10. 2015 Visualization.zip
  11. I know there are symbols available, but I think a useful enhancement in the Visualizer and Pixel Editor would be to allow the import of a graphic image and to allow for the graphic to be faded in and out based on channel intensity. So in my case I have a life size dancing santa in my display. Instead of having to draw a "light" representation of him I'd like to add a fixture that is a graphic picture of a santa and let it use that in my preview. Thanks Howard
  12. LOR Visualizer is unable to play SE when SE has multiple sequence files open. I presume this is because SE has an option to play one or all sequences and it doesn't know what to do. I would suggest that it should play the currently selected sequence in SE. Regards, Howard
  13. Using Visualizer 4.2.10. The naming conventions are inconsistent. I created props and let it name everything... When I created my 32 channel mega tree, it used this format: [Mega 1 - DMX Pixels XX] where XX is a zero filled double digit number from 01 to 32. When I created my 8 channel trees, it used this format: [Tree 1 - DMX Pixels X] where X is a single digit from 1 to 8. When I ran the rename wizard, it used this format: [Tree 1 - DMX Pixels #X] where it inserted a number sign and X is a single digit from 1 to 8. It also changed the name of my prop to be [Tree 1 - DMX Pixels] because
  14. I have downloaded LOR 4.3.0 and it looks great. But i open SE all good. I opened VI and loaded my visualizer file that associated with my SE file. Press play in the visualizer and LOR Visualizer error comes up Reboot Required cannot enter simulation mode. Time is running Backwards. . i have shut down the computer. Restarted a few times and same error coming up. Any hellp would be great. thank you
  15. when I select a picture for the visualizer it loads upside down even though it is correctly orientated in my picture folder. I'm using lor 4 software and windows 10. any help would be appreciated.
  16. Thanks for any help. Matrix wizard, jumbotron. start matrix - top left vertical snake CCR pixels W 12 H 25 New/existing fixture - Recommended, checked this box Automatically assigns 12 fixtures - which leads to my problem in the RUN CHANNEL WIZARD I'm using 3 - CCP 100D-pixels.

  17. Ordered my new stuff for this year. 3 - CCP (50X2) strings with controller. License upgrade to 4.2.6 SS license 8_CCR Where do I start Serious - I know I will not have time to learn everything SS can do. What are the easiest steps to create my effect? Looking to create a prop that the matrix wizard sets up (Visualizer) 6 rows of 50 bulbs. All I am after this year is making a few words cross the screen, some pictures perhaps talking faces if I get good. I've been looking at the help files, tutorials, but its pretty easy to start going in circles Visualizer. 1st time I have even set that
  18. Does anyone have a HC Candy Cane (RGB) viz file you can share?
  19. Hi All I need some help... I have been spinning my wheels running through the samples with the installer and YouTube tutorials but not seeming to get any closer to the end goal. I have picked up 6 CCP controlers for the main tree which will run 24 strings by 25 pixels. I have also got an additional CCP controler to put a star at the top of the tree. In the Visualizer, i have based the main tree off the sample file "24x25Tree_4RowGlobe.lee" but as i dont have enough lights for the Globe construction i want to run two star Shapes. One at 20 Pixels (Inside Star) and one at 30 Pixels(Outside
  20. I have my (2) 50watt RGB floods setup in SE with their own controller I.D. #s. Channels 1-3 for RGB and 4-5 for the strobe on and strobe off. I can't figure out how to put these flood lights into my visualizer as 2 separate props. I get the 3 RGB channels setup, but can't get the strobe on & off channels into it.. I just keep going in circles. Suggestions or shortcuts? I need to get it figured out soon - the ones I ordered from the Synchronized Christmas sale show to be arriving the 18th... (Thanks for the fast service Don...) Thanks, Daniel
  21. Hi DevMike and anyone else that knows the answer to this. I created a 180 Pixel tree for 2811 pixels in Visualizer. It has 16 strings running from ground to top so it'll be edge to center and each string is 50 pixels. I ran the channel wizard and yes, DevMike I pixel packed because I only have 1 e682 controller. I get the attached error when I try and import the real visualization into SuperStar. I ran through the channels for 4 universes each one having starting pixels 1 then 51 then 101 finally 151 before going on to next universe. Then the numbering of the following universes are the same.
  22. There have been a lot of discussion on how amazing and how terrible the new software is. My jury is still out.Since I have only been working on getting my new visualizers built to my liking, I can't feel good about forming an opinion either way. That said, Are there going to be some sort of video tutorials on how to properly use the new Pixel editor and then integrate it with S4 sequence editor and Superstar? Superstar, no problem, Love it. Sequence editor, no problem but haven't used it in 2 or 3 years to sequence with. Pixel Editor, I'm totally lost. I know it's probably already been
  23. I updated to S3 ver 3.12.2 with Superstar and want to use Pixels for a 12 string tree. When I loaded the new Visualizer file to SS (horizontal) it created the grids with the pixels strings at the bottom of the grid. Then when I tried to play one of the SS sequences from last year, it started to control pixels on the pixel tree instead of the original props it was suppose to control. I assumed that SS controls channels by position on the grid so I used the SS DMX Keywords in the comment field of the Visualizer prop screen to position all my original props at the bottom of the grid and the pix
  24. Information to report: Report Number: JLM 02 Module: Visualizer Software Version: 4.0.14 OS Version: Windows 7 Home Pro Description: Selecting Visualizer on top and selecting simulation mode when data is being sent results in the visualizer ALWAYS on top when the Control Panel is running. Minimizing the visualizer only result in it bouncing back to the front, preventing any editing and even preventing you from selecting the Play icon in the sequence editor. Repeatability: Select the radio button for the visualizer on top when data is being sent. Select Simulation mode. (open sequencer a
  25. I had to reload my hard drive due to some other problems not related to LOR. I actually used a different hard to reload it, then copied the whole Light-O-Rama directory to the new hard drive. When I open Visualizer and then open the current .LEE file, the picture is there but all the props are gone that I created on the old hard drive. Any idea where they are? Is it a separate file in a different directory? Please help me, I don't want to have to recreate all those props.
