RGB Pixel Utility

Victor, I've downloaded and tried your RGB Studio but each time I try to import a newly created pixel file into the visualizer, it crashes it. Suspecting that I was over my limit, I created a new visualizer with nothing but the background picture, then imported the pixel tree into it...still crashes it. This was a simple 12x50 tree and nothing else. Thoughts?

First of all, praise Victor... the almighty creator of pixel software heaven! Not only is this a fantastic tool for all newbs and I'm sure experienced alike but it actually looks good and works well. So thank you so much for your work. If you ever open up to donations I'll be first in.

 

I have also had a problem similar to dgrant. The first time I imported a props file into visualizer it was fine. I could go to properties and, although the channel export wizard was greyed out, I could go there. However, since deleting that prop and starting from scratch, visualizer crashes whenever I try to get to properties. I figure it must be something with visualizer itself and have searched for files that might now be cached or stuck and cause the problem. However, I can't find any. Tomorrow I'll try a full uninstall/reinstall of LOR and see if I can import a prop and go to properties again. In the meantime, I'm wondering if dgrant has had any luck or if Victor has any idea what might be happening.

 

Thanks again!

Nah I did exactly that too, a full reinstall of the software and I insured everything was deleted first. Something in the pixel file addition, causes it to crash and I'm not over the 1024 limit. So there's something in there that doesn't like the visualizer or the visualizer doesn't like it. I agree that Victor is the best when it comes to pixels!

Hi all, couple of questions if anyone can help:

 

Strings and pixels per string is fine. I assume strands x 2 means each string will go up and down, or down and up rather than just top to bottom... is that correct? So if I my strings are 70 pixels and I want 16 individual lines I would set 8 strings, 70 pixels, 2 strands?

 

My next question then relates to setting up the universes. If I was to use something like the j1sys ECG-P12R controller I would connect each string separately to 8 different channels - so 8 different universes. To get the correct channel output from RGB studio I believe the right way would be to:

 

- set universe 1 (not using any other uni's at this stage)

- first channel 1

- last channel 210 (70 pixels x RGB)

 

By the looks of the channel layout in visualizer I think I'm right but just wanted to see if people agreed with my logic?

 

Many thanks,

 

Bob

The newest controller the P12S, the onboard firmware allows you to change the direction of the strings/strips as you wish and its done by channel number. I found that very helpful on my pixel tree where I've got one universe with three strings in series. The first string is coming down therefore reversed whereas the second string is the normal direction of down and lastly, reversing the 3rd string, makes it go down too.

Hi Vic,

 

Just using V1.0.26.0 and I can't select my model to use in the sequencer?

 

On your vid from an ealier version there was an option to chose a model file near the play and stop button.. This version does not seem to have it.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Jamie.

Hi Vic,

 

Finally have time to start playing with this properly. I really want to add two RGB megatrees this year but time is running out to get organised! All is working well for me now in sequence editor and visualizer. Something I'm curious about though... do you have your own trick for keeping the actual effects in time with the music? Some effects like the butterfly, circles etc. are probably less vital but with things like the curtain it would be nice to have each repetition of the effect in time with the music. Any ideas?

 

Many thanks,

 

Bob

Hi Bob,

 

The system currently does it's timing at a fixed rate on the intervals. I will look into how to make that more precise.

 

Thanks,

Victor

Hi All,

 

Frank pointed out that the download was saying the file was corrupt. I have just re-posted the zip. The version is still 1.0.30.0. Let me know if anyone has a problem unzipping the file.

 

Thanks,

Victor

Hi Jamie,

 

In the newer version of the system it will look in the folder you set in Preferences for you model files and will populate the combo box in the model section of the sequencer. You should see in that combo the model name you supplied when creating the model.

 

Please let me know if this is not the case and I will look into it.

 

Thanks,

Victor

Hi All,

 

Have a question on the visualizer problems people are having. Are you exporting the model as a SINGLE prop file or as MULTIPLE prop files. If you have not tried it export the model as multiple and then in visualizer load each file and reassemble these props to look like your model. This should not exceed any visualizer boundaries but let me know if it does and send over your single prop file so I can debug.

 

Thanks,

Victor

Hi All,

 

Just a quick update. I have added back the open model button in the sequencer. Some folks have reported that they could not bring in the models due to them not being available in the drop down.

 

The new version of the system is 1.0.31.0.

 

When you can get the latest and let me know of any issues.

 

Thanks,

Victor

Hi All,

 

I am in the process of creating a web site for some of my endeavors. A benefit of this is that I can now post all updates to RGB Studio on the site.

 

If you browse to www.actiongamegadgets.com and navigate to the Services area you will see the link for the utility there.

 

At some point I will be removing the current link to the utility so move over to the new link for the latest.

 

I am still building and designing the site so please bare with me.

 

Thanks,

Victor

Hey Victor, You need to show the version number on the new download. At this instant, while you are building the site, the download just shows a bunch of numbers. hint, hint

YES! That worked as far as the file name. I didn't download it yet but I'm sure it will. It does just download from your DropBox account like before but hey, if it works, cool.
