Well, i am willing to give another try at making a native asq file for LSP. I will work on making a msq file for lsp but first need someone to explain why this doesnt work? msq or asq files are 7zip archives. I made a simple 5 rgb (15 channel) sequence in LSP 2.0 that is 10 seconds long. http://meighan.net/nutcracker/sequences/JUL6.asq So i did a 7zip to unzip this. I then saw the xml file called JUL6 Before doing anything else, i wanted to see that i could then 7zip this back so i added JUL6 into a 7zip archive and got a JUL6.7z. Didnt touch anything, what was strange is that this new file is smaller than the original asq file JUL6.asq was 4,199 bytes JUL6 (The xml file after unzipping) was 34,737 bytes JUL6.7z was 2,970 bytes. It is smaller than the original file. I renamed JUL6.7z as JUL6_after.asq When i try to open this file it gives an error. Unless i cam figure out how to get an xml file out and then get it compressed back as an asq file, i will not start to reverse engineer the xml file. any ideas why this didnt work?
