    Last xmas I made all my display in xlights since it was my first year and much easier to get going. This year I am using Vixen 3 but there are some sequences in xlights I would like to move into vixen. Is there anyway to accomplish this? Xlights only seems to support older vixen formats.


    thanks,

    If it is a short sequence, then you could export it from Xlights to Vixen 2 format, and then import the Vixen 2 file, but you don't want to do this for sequences that you will be using ongoing. There are now tools in Vixen 3 to help "crunch" the vixen 2 import into a smaller sequence file, but expect to spend some time on it. In general, you would get a better, more efficient result, if you did it again from scratch in Vixen 3. And it would probably take less time.
