machtoo Posted November 30, 2020 Share Posted November 30, 2020 After many hours of reading and watching videos, I have converted 3 of my 36 sequences to S5. Watching my SuperStar sequences in the visualizer with my other 360 channels of props is impressive. I have used LOR since 2007 when I started with 128 channels. However, I have some questions... 1. My existing sequences all has SuperStar sequences for a 12 ribbon CCR tree. When I created the visualizer I used the SuperStar prop for the CCR tree, configured the channels to my original addresses and it runs fine in the visualizer. However, the convert creates a complete set of redundant channels in the archive. I have tested deleting them and it did not affect the playback in the visualizer so I assume it will drive the controllers properly in a show? Is this a correct assumption? 2. I have several props that I created multiple copies of as they are physically connected in the real world..my net lights as an example. Red, green, and white on 8 bushes and all connected and controlled by 3 LOR channels. I noticed the copies are not recognized during conversion so I have to copy and paste the sequence cells into each copy to see them work properly in the visualizer. These 8 clones also have the same addressing to make them work together in the visualizer. It does generate channel conflict errors that I ignore. Will this cause any issues in reality? Also, is there any other way to connect multiple props other than assigning them the same channels? 3. While I have been successful at getting all of the "bulb/led" props into the visualizer I have a remaining challenge and need some advice. I have 7 custom characters that sing and "move" in the show by controlling rope light limbs, mouths, and eyes. All of the channels to light the frames and control the limbs are in the archive mode right now. What is the best way to get the characters into the visualizer and assign the archived channels to the correct frame, arm, leg, mouth etc? Can one make archive channels active without a prop? I noticed an option in the archive management tool to move them to the design. Thanks in advance, Dean Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
