some of you will join me as well.

It has been mentioned a few times, but didn't seem to get much traction. But, with the continued evolvement of RGB stuff.

It would be a great tool to adjust the intensity, while retaining the effects. IE If i have an RGB channel doing a fadeup to 100% and fade doen from 100-0%.

We could jsut set the intensity we wanted to use, then select that area. Hit the "special" intensity key...now everything is reduced to the 60%.

But, your fades,twinkles etc. remain as the same effect; only 60% less or whatever you needed. Lot easier to adjust that bright 100% white RGB down to something more closer to a warm white.

Thanks,

David

Tools, Intensity Options, select. Its already there.

Fade Tool Options. Then Custom button configuration tool, select Fade Up, Fade Down, Set Intensity, etc.

TJ, are you sure that will do what the OP is asking? I know there are times when I want to just change the intensity of an effect, but maintain the effect, when I try that, I usually have to redo the entire effect manually, I've never gotten it to work on regular incan or LED strands {don't have RGB or Pixel items}, but I don't think the SE has this capability, if it does, where's the tutorial for it? As I'd love to be able to change just a small section of an area by lower just that section or change just that effect without affecting any other portion of the current channel I'm working on.

So I'd want this capability as well.

One other complaint I have is the channel config file, every time I import it into a new sequence using tracks only track 1 gets set to my default timing of 0.05 and I have to manually change every other track, time consuming to say the least, it would be so much nicer {and easier} if ALL tracks would default to the SAVED timing you have set, instead of only track 1 and manually have to change the others below it.

it does it exactly as he's asking. You preset the Intensity and effect in the Tool section, then choose Tool, Custom, select if you want fade up/down, or set intensity. (only 3 choices). Click the Custom button, select the mode next to it, fade up to 60%, fade down to 0%. Can do the same with twinkle/shimmer from off to 60% to off again. Pretty sure its in the Tut how to use the Tool Settings and Custom buttons. Give it a try.

I read it as adjusting (scaling) the exiting intensities also. It would be somewhat of a macro that took every effect within a given area and multiplied any existing intensity / fade setting by a scale factor (without going above 100). If that’s so I’ve wanted the same feature this year to tone down my new LED arches in some songs without having to reprogram all the effects.

Is there a VIDEO tutorial for this somewhere? Then maybe I could see if this the same thing we're all talking about here, somehow I'm thinking it isn't, but I've been wrong before.... :P

TJ, not quite understanding what I'm talking about. Orville and Geoff and rwertz get it. :)

Try this, create a row with some fade ups/downs fadeup/down shimmers,sparkles etc. All at 100%

Now select the intensity level to 60%. Now highlight your created row of mixed effects, selcect intensity...what happened? In my case, all the effects just on 60% level.

I lost all my fades,shimmers,twinkles. Make sense what I'm saying now. Sure, I can go and reedit those effects using the special setting; I'm going to have to.

But, I would like to be able to just select everything I need, and reduce it all at the same time, without affecting any effects. IE fades remain fades, jsut intead of 0-100, they fade from 0-60 etc.

The more you work with the RGB stuff, you'll begin to appreciate this feature. My full on white is too bright. Reducing it to approx50-60% should even it out with the other surrounding lights.

But it has to be dome through each RGB channel. Hence my wanting to select my areas and reduce intensity to a lesser percent. Hope this clarifies it for you.

You basically want to change what you have done to a lower intensity without changing anything other than the max intensity, correct? Don't think that can be done if I get what you want to do.

That would be nice to be able to do. I have done that on a limited basis by manually editing the XML code, but you have to know what you are doing for that (OK, I have been manually editing web pages for almost 20 years so I DO know how). It would be MUCH easier with what David is asking.

Yep, that's EXACTLY how I understood your first posting on this. And that's what I was saying too, it can't be done in the SE as it is.

It would be great if this was able to be done, because like you, I have decided after seeing the sequence running the actual show lights, they were too bright, but couldn't just decrease the entire row from 50% to 30% {LED strand} without the entire row going to a straight 30% and all effects in that row being lost, which is exactly what happens when you lower the rows inensity setting.

And it's a pain to have to go through each section of the row and change the intensity by redoing the lower intensity and the effect at the same time, especially on 2 minute or longer songs/sequences!

I agree, we really need some way to do this within the Sequence Editor itself across the entire row or rows wanting to be changed without affecting or changing the effects in the row{s}.

Gotta make your other lights brighter! B)
