Between the sequences

If I have a channel on at the end of one sequence and the same channel on at the beginning of the next sequence will it be seamless or will it blink.

I used a couple of channels for static display and my fm station sign and set them up as a background sequence. I don't recall mine blinking between the musical sequences.



Dan, in LORII are we going to be able to use channels for static, and they not go off at the end without setting them up as background?

Mike, You are correct about the background section. A sequence in the background section will not "blink" and will stay on steady for the entire duration of the show.

With LOR II you will have the option of the current behavior ( turn every channel in a sequence off at the end ) or the new behavior ( leave the channels in their last state when a sequence ends)....

Stupid question, whats a background section?


Not a stupid question at all. A show has 5 sections ( the Help only documents 4 sections, when Background was added the help file was not updated)

The 5 sections of a show are:

Background Section - Optional section: A list of zero or more Animation Sequences that will run for the entire show. Can be used for background static portions of a show.

Startup Section - Optional section: A list of zero or more Animation and/or Musical Sequences that will run when the show first is started.

Animation Section - Optional section: A list of zero or more Animation Sequences that will run during the body of the show. The sequences can run simultaneously or sequentially. The sequences in this section will be repeated as many times as necessary to complete the scheduled period of the show.

Musical Section - Optional section: A list of zero or more Musical Sequences that will run during the body of the show. The sequences can run sequentially as listed or randomly. The sequences in this section will be repeated as many times as necessary to complete the scheduled period of the show.

Shutdown Section - Optional section: A list of zero or more Animation and/or Musical Sequences that will run at the scheduled end of the show. If a Musical Sequence is running in the Musical Section when the show is scheduled to end, that song will be completed first then the Shutdown Section will be run.


Note: You should have one or more sequences listed in the Animation Section or the Musical section. You can have sequence in both sections those section will be run simultaneously. I have a number of sections in my display. Only one section is synchronized to music. The other sections have Animation running. Each section has its own Animation Sequence and the all run mutinously. By having a number of different Animations running each of those animations sequences has less channels and is a little easier to manage. This is helpful with displays with large numbers of channels.

So for example, while your musical sequences are running you can have a helicopter turn on then the blades run and then turn it off, at the same time light up an entire section and then turn it off, and still have some on static all the time?

If so I better study.

That is correct.
