    I just set up my first 12 RGB 150 pixels per string "sign" and before I spend more money on software I have a few questions.
    1) Why does wowlights.com have the 24 CCR Superstar lights package $100.00 cheaper then LOR?
    2) Since I can't see the export function until I purchase it, can I seamlessly copy a 12 string Cosmic color sequence into an 12 string DMX sequence once it is in the editor if I want to.
    3) Is anyone willing to post a sequence saying hello world or whatever so I can see how it looks in the sequencer so I can decide if I want to do it without the Superstar package?

    Hi and welcome to ACL Salvatore
    You'll need to point to the 2 links with the prices as I for 1 and unsure which packages you are referring to.
    You can't do the export seamlessly. You can probably do it fairly painlessly with a copy and paste into a new sequence though.
    You can probably do a "Hello" in a matter of minutes using Xlights/Nutcracker which is free and drop it back into LOR. Xlights and the Nutcracker effects it uses are a very popular alternative to Superstar andt is used by LOR and also LSP users as it is so quick and powerful.

    I did the same thing this year for a 14X50 RGB pixel tree.


    I presume that your strings are 50 pixel, 150 LED?


    Happy to export a sequence for you... and as for the export I believe you can set it up natively but I just set them as CCR's and then copied the output string sequence across. For the 2 minutes it took per sequence I couldn't be bothered muching around.

    Just a really quick untested play. I'll left it in standard CCR export mode so you can see what I mean, from memory if you have your LOR set up to 50 RGB 'groups' I just copied and pasted each string from top to bottom, you may be able to do it all at once but I have a recollection there was some weirdness there.
