I have created a sequence in Pixel Editor and did the whole saved intensity data.  The sequence editor shows the PE information but when i try to run the lights nothing happens.  What am I doing wrong or missing?

Ok i am just going to play dumb...please be patient with me.....lor set to enhanced?  

What controllers?

How did you configure/ set up the controllers within SE?

I asked that since you didn't know what enhanced was/ is.

If you have a pixie 2/4/8/16 you can read my step by step configuration in the General Hardware section of the forums. "Pixie16 Configuration Step by Step" this will/ may help you. It is stickied at the top of the page.

Intensity files require that the network being used is set to enhanced mode.  If you start up Network Preferences, assuming you have it in Simple mode, it will look something like this.  If you are already in Advanced mode, skip this step.  Press the button on the right for Advanced.

After you click on the advanced button, it will look something like this.

Click on whatever network you are using (Most likely Regular), and you should get something like this (without my Comment of course):

Make sure the Enhanced LOR Network is selected near the bottom.

Ok another issue...what am i missing?  I have 2 pixie 16 controllers hooked up.  In PE eveything works great....when i test the lights the controllers are not working together.  For example, i have the text effect in part of the sequence...it looks great in PE but when the lights run it it is doubled box 1 is putting it out and box 2 is putting it out...they r not working together

Disregard, read it wrong.

If you copy pasted did you copy paste them correctly

I do not copy and paste.  It does it with images too.  It is like the controllers read the circuits 1-16 and 1-16......not 1-32

It sounds like the controllers are using the same Unit IDs. Verify the ID settings on the controllers.

1st Pixie 16 - You set the starting ID of 1 and it will use 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, 10.

2nd Pixie 16 - you set the starting ID of 11 and it will use 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F, 20.

You assign the starting ID of each controller and the software assigns the next 15 automatically.

Really???? When i get home i will change it then!  Let me ask this just in case...if I don't have a 1 (i don't remember seeing it) but i have 01 would that work too?

No!   Count 16 (in Hex)+1  before you add another device

Since you have Pro, the (need to keep sequential) counts are not an issue. Assign by Blocks: 20-2F, 30-3F

(So much easier starting with a x0-xF, those are blocks of 16...  just remember 00 is not allowed)

Man if this works you are my hero!!! 

Reading my Pixie16 config Step by Step stickied at the top of the General Hardware section would really help you.

When I replied about the copy paste I had seen your earlier post “got it” so I assumed you had your pixies set up Correctly.

The Step by Step explains everything to you in easy to follow instructions.

Yup, we seem to think alike.  I assign my props in blocks.  Much easier for me to manage and less change of accidentally overlapping things

Ok i got the lighta to work in HU but now in PE it doesn't work...do i need to resave it?

You need to check that you are using the correct ID for each PORT.

In SE,for each sequence file: Tools :channel configuration;  You are looking at Unit ID (boards ID), Channel, and if it is assigned to the correct network)

Even though i do not have the red adapter yet?

Ya might as well change it , cuz it ain't gonna work (reliably) in  a show. BTW  I am not sure if PE has that same tool, but you use the second button from the left to reassign Network
