how to create an image and then make it move around on the CCR 16x50


Recommended Posts

So i am sequencing "its raining tacos" my 4 yr old loves it. Anyway,

1 - how do i get an image of a taco on the board?  or  how do i design it on the pixel board in case the image file wont work?

2 - once i get an image how do i get it to rain down a bunch of tacos???? 

please help 

i do most of my stuff in PE and send it off to SE as intensity but i do have SS file and have no problem doing it in SS as well but i just dont know much about SS yet.

Google "Mini Taco GIF". You want to find the smallest stock resolution you can,

Save whatever images you like to your computer

Open SS

Open media

Set up your layout under tools/ layout (not the vis side of the scree)

Tools - add image

The image will have multiple images but you can upload them all at once

"add image" (top left)

The image will show up as #2. You cannot do anything about that

Go to the left side and use the X/Y to adjust the size and position of the image. Ensure it fits within your node count from the bottom row.

Once you have the image set there go back to the top right - modify

Now drop down to the lower left 

X/Y to set the time 

Set the time between images probably 15 is best

Go up just above that box and select the "trunc all" or something like that

That will add all images to that matrix

I am out and may have missed a step but that will give you a start.

It looks more complicated than it actually is.

Thanks JR... I should have figured you would know LOL... i will try in SS tonight

There was an admin that closed my question in pixel editor section. i posted the question twice - 1 in PE thread and 1 in SS thread to try and get answers from both functions but i guess that is not allowed for some reason. I use PE 99% of the time but i have the license for SS as well just never used it. So if anyone has knows how to do it in PE as well i am all ears.

PE is sup to be pretty similar to S5 so you should have a little easier time migrating once you are ready.
