SS Version


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of purchasing a Smart Pixel MegaTree Kit from a vendor. It contains 12 strips totaling 1800 channels. This is probably an obvious answer, but I'd like to confirm with some experts. If I purchase said kit, will I need to purchase the LOR SS 24CCR version in order to cover the 1800 channels?

 

Thanks for the help!

A 24_CCR License will cover 3600 channels.

One thing to keep in mind is that Superstar is geared toward LOR products. Thus if your strips are over 50 RGB channels in length, you will run into issues.

Don, is SS limited to 50 channels per strip, or 150? I'm a total newb here, so please excuse my ignorance. The reason I ask is a 2CCR version covers 300 channels, so I'm assuming each CCR would be 150 channels. Is that correct?

The strips I'm considering (from Holiday Coro) are 150 channels on each strip, so 150 x 12 = 1800 channels. The lowest version of SS available to cover 1800 channels is the 24_CCR version.

I have LOR CCR and pixel strings. My pixels are 90 RGB lights each...so 270 channels per element. I have 2 of these.

I have 3 CCR's. I have 2 50 RGB led strips that are non CCR as well.

I have several RGB floods, arches, mini Xmas trees, etc in the yard.

I use superstar to sequence all of this with zero issue. I set it up in visualizer, import to superstar and am able to program with ease.

Now, I did simplify a little. Setting up visualizer for superstar is different than my actual yard as I put the elements in locations in the visualizer to ease my sequencing but that is in a different post about how to setup visualizer for superstar grid use.

Each CCR license allows 150 channels. 1 CCR is 50 RGB LEDs. And that is how the license is set up. It is not specific to RGB either. An incandescent light string will be one channel for example. My 5 channel arch is 15 channels. My RGB flood is 3 channels.

Superstar works without a license too. It just won't let you export the completed sequence. So when you go to export the sequence you made it counts the channels at that point. It will post an error if you don't have enough channels on your license.

Yes, I paid a premium for the licenses. Well worth it IMHO.

I have the 40 CCR license. I sequence over 10k channels. I have to sequence each song 5 times with different elements. In my humble opinion, Superstar is the only way to sequence pixels or anything else.

If I'm guessing at your vendor, the strips are 50 pixels per leg or 150 total channels. So, for a 12 strip tree will need the 24 CCR license.

I am purchasing the SS license upgrade from 2 to 24 CCR's for my tree and other pixels.  Now that we are 100% RGB, SS has proven to be a great tool for our sequencing.
