I would really like to see a video for those of us that are not using RGB everything, and still use LED or incan lighting mostly and how you can use the tools of LSP 2.0 to group controllers to a color and use the rgb tools.  i know david posted a video last year for that, but i would like to see an updated one with the new tools and features.

Of course LSP is targeted toward RGB and pixel based displays but it does work excellent with non-RGB displays also.  I think the video you maybe refering to is this one:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login which covers how to sequence using transitions without using RGB devices.

So you'd like a video that shows layers and the ways in which you can group controllers and elements inside layers?

Thanks David,

 I enjoyed what part of you classes on LSP I could make but I was not able to make all three and only part of two of them. You did an excellent job on them.

Thanks for the feedback.  There were lots of good questions and I think what was shown is that LSP isn't something that you can pickup in just three 50 minute sessions.  There is a time investment to LSP but it's worth it in the end with what you can make LSP produce.

Something I really use a lot is the custom chase.

(1) Select the pattern you want to chase (do this in non-collapsed channel range)
(2) right-click + COPY  or CTRL+C
(3) Go to where you want to do the chase. 
(4) SHIFT + left-click + drag chase range [ down arrow or up arrow determines chase direction ]

If you do (4) on a collapsed controller, you will chase all channels in the collapsed controller, virtual controller or selected layer.

If you do (4) on a channel range, then it just chases the channels in the range selected.

The reason I point this out is that the default chase isn't very powerful, but this really is ... because you can
selected the chase pattern you wanted, then chase it very easily ... across channel range or an entire controller, virtual controller or layer. 
Very powerful.

There are some in the transition library RGB, Mono, Live and User imports. Also if you go to downloads, in the miscellaneous section are Mike's user objects that he was kind enough to upload for all of us. Here is the link: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and there are directions there on how to use them as well. I would like more of them as well and if you put a feature request in I will be sure to rate it high and I'm sure there are others who will as well.

I think they are gone.  I'll ask Mike if he can share it again?

That is weird, my link takes me right to the download page for Mikes user objects. Transitions are right under where the controllers are on the left hand side when you open LSP. Just click on it. George
Dave, maybe we need a video of this? lol

It wouldn't work for me in Firefox, but I got it downloaded with IE. I attached Mikes Transitions in case anybody wanted them.

extract tfile to a folder, open LSP, create a seq and load a controller.  Next Draw controller objects.  You will see a Share button - click that.  You should see an Import option.  Simply browse to the folder where you saved your extracted file and select it.  It should come back with a msg telling you that it imported 21 objects.  Now you are good to go!

Here are a few more tips and tricks for LSP V2:

What we need is a video that shows the transition library and what you can do with all the cut-n-paste options to modify them...I'll put that one up next.

 <res. Great videos David ... thanks!!!   <res.

The virtual controllers can set sort ordinals, whereas layers cannot.

Your also a little more limited (with layers) in how you can re-arrange the channels.

I didn't know you could add those custom virtual controllers to the library ... thats nice.

Now we just need a concept of a configuration which ties together the common LSP drawing, the controllers
and gives the ability to save the layers as well.
