I have the i got a feeling song by lady gaga, but its only a 16 channel song, so if anyone could possibly show me how to go about adding a 16 channel arch into the song or just an example so i can duplicate it becasue im going from 16 channels to 32 channels this year.

Go to Tools and select Channel Property Grid. You can add controllers/channels. However with making the arches' channels, if you want a 16 channel arch, select any of the 32 channels you want to represent an arch. Depending on how many arches you want, you might want to dedicate more channels to them. Most people dedicate a certain 8 or 16 channels to a particular arch and only to that arch so other channels arn't "interfering"..Anyway if I havn't said enough specific details, just go off of this: Choose 16 channels, either the first 16 or last. Edit your sequence so the arches are animated to how you want it. If you want to look more professional, like I said earlier, don't use those 16 channels for anything else besides your arch. You can now use the other 16 channels to animate the rest of your sequence...

(Mega-Trees also work the same way.)

I hope I clarified and if not, maybe someone else can. Any questions let me know.

....Ok I'm done typing.

If you have pre made sequences, they might not come set up with arch channels. Have you made a sequence or atleast tried to? It's the same way as editing any other channel but go under the note that they are arches and animate them to your specifications. I'll find you some pictures if your more of a visual learner...

Take a look at this picture:

See how the blue color channels on the bottom half of the sequence are in thier own area where only one channel out of the 16 around them are on, (unlike the top half of the sequence), I can't tell from the picture but it's pretty sure to me those are that person's arch or mega tree channels. That's pretty much what you want to do. When the sequence plays, it will roll through your arch just as it looks. You also don't want to put any animation in between those 2 blue lines. Like I keep saying, those 16 rows under each blue line belongs to that arch. Another example is with multiple arches, just count every 16 channels down and you have 1 arch. (But I don't see why anyone would want a sequence like that-it's just a way to look at it)

Instead of always typing so much, I'm going to start making tutorial videos....
