Recommended Posts

Today we released production version 6.1.2 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite.  This is an official production release.

S6 builds on the S5 Sequencer's combination of the Pixel Editor, Sequence Editor and Visualizer, and this time focuses on the integration of the Show Editor, Schedule Editor, Network Preferences, SD Card Builder, and Test Lights Function. A new program called the "Control Panel" combines these previously separate programs and replaces the "Hub" application that was first introduced in the last versions of S4. The Sequencer and Superstar have remained largely the same between S5 and S6. No upgrade process is required to continue using your sequences - simply open your .loredit files and continue your work.

S6 also introduces the companion smart phone app, available in both the Google and Apple Play Store. This app allows you to access the new control panel program while it's active on your computer so that you can make schedule changes and test your lights all from your phone.

Help documentation for S6 can be found online here: https://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/6.1.2/help/the_light-o-rama_software_pack.htm

How to check if your license covers this version

To check whether or not your license covers this version, please go to the license retrieval page, and enter your email address (the one you purchased your license with). An email should then be sent to you with information about your license. The "Summary" section of the email will tell you whether or not your license covers the latest version.

If the email says...

  • Your license covers the latest version, 6.1.*.

... then your license already covers this version.  You can use it without making any additional purchase.  Please note, though, that your computer may not yet understand that your license covers this version, so when you install, it might tell you that you are running in Demo mode.  In this case, simply reactivate your license (for example, via "Register or Upgrade Light-O-Rama" on the Sequencer's "Help" menu), and your computer will then learn that your license is valid for this version.

On the other hand, if the email instead says...

  • Your license does not cover the latest version, 6.1.*.

... then your license does not cover this version.  In that case, you have several options:

 

(1) You can continue using whatever version your license does cover (for example, perhaps your license covers version 5.6.8).

(2) If you want to take this opportunity to increase your license level to take advantage of additional features, you can purchase a license level upgrade.  (changing between Basic, Basic Plus, Standard, Advanced and Pro). As a bonus, you get a free major release upgrade with this purchase, which will automatically make you eligible to download S6.

(3) If you already own a Light-O-Rama license, but you do not currently own Light-O-Rama SuperStar, or if you want to upgrade SuperStar to a higher number of CCRs/channels, you could purchase or upgrade SuperStar.  As a bonus, you get a free major release upgrade with this purchase, which will automatically make you eligible to download S6. Please note that you must already own a license for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite in order to take this option.

(4) If you do not want to purchase a license level upgrade or Light-O-Rama SuperStar, you can major release upgrade.  Your license will now work with the new version (and some future versions too), at the same license level as it currently does.  For example, if you have an Advanced license, it will remain an Advanced license, but it will now cover the new version of software.
