Thanks for the video Sean!

Just a thought, but what about creating a sticky post of some kind for people to share their xml sequences? that way don't have to search each individual post

Nice tutorial, thanks!!


The feature was well-done!


Was there ever a tutorial done on Mattr's copy/paste?  ...I haven't figured that one out yet. :)

When I am working on a downloaded sequence in addition to similar items like megatree to megatree I look for similar count items.  I have 4 windows and 6 porch columns so I will look for items that have a similar count and try those when I do not have the same type of model.  That would be one reason to have the rgbeffects file or to have a short description of the elements that make up a sequence.

I have also learned to never tell the preview to remove unmatched? effects as the box that says "Part of my Display" gets unchecked and I have had to go back and recheck them manually.  There is not need to click yes to that question, since anything that was not completed in the creating the xseq file does not show up in the preview playback.

I'm immortalized in one of Sean's tutorials. YEAH!

Now the next important thing is to get a place where we share these sequences...land o lights used to have a good repository for vixen but doesn't look like it's been maintained.

You bet, I download and try stuff to see if I might like it all the time.  There is info in the manual on how to import a sequence.  The key is to import them, not just open them.
