Don Posted December 9, 2018 Share Posted December 9, 2018 Man, feel like a newbie again with S5. Trying to build a preview for next year, but running into some issues. What issue? I don't know yet. This is a tree that is two colors, Red/White. No RGB, just LED Red and White Lights. The tree has 5 rows and 6 columns. (or 30 "zones") Each zone has both red and white lights. The idea was to build the preview so that I could both program 'normally' in the SE equivalent, while at the same time take advantage of some of the motion effects that the Sequence offers, albeit with two colors. I fired up S5 and started to build my preview. 1) Create new Prop 2) Type: Channel per color - Choose Red/White 3) Shape: Custom Shape. Define with "1" being lower left, "6" being lower right, and go up from there. I end up with a 6*5 grid of dots. 4) Channels are set up (but will get modified later) Now I go to create an animation sequence to start tinkering. Problem 1 - Only one color appears in the preview. All 60 channels are there, and are all defined as White/Red, and I can even turn them on. However, only the White lights are playing. Problem 2 - I can create motion effects, but I can only get the White lights to respond. Even when I choose the red lights in the Pallet area, I do not get any red lights responding. Clearly I'm missing something, but I don't know what it might be. Ideas anyone? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
