I wonder if your issues are caused by the aftermath of hurricane Sandy and if the ABC server is down because of that

Tonight's tutorial was on how to create single strand effects for odd shaped targets. I discussed how I created effects for the 400' of spider web and the 8' spider my sons built for Halloween.
Tutorial goes through
1) make a 16 segment single strand target
2) create effects for the 16 segments
3) use audacity to mark phrases
4) create a song using the audacity labels file
5) create a project using the song and the target
6) running project
7) loading finished song into Vixen






Tutorial is located here.
