    Thanks
    Hello,
    if that sequence works ok in Vixen 1.0, but causes those errors in Vixen 2.1, it might need to be converted to be used with Vixen 2.1.

    This thread here describes some good methods for converting Vixen 1.x sequences to Vixen 2.

    This is the method I use for conversion:
    1: Download the older Vixen 2.0, and extract. (Only the 2.0 release can convert up directly from 1.x. You should use 2.1+ again once converted).
    2: Copy the old v1 sequence into the newly extracted Vixen 2.0 'Sequences/' folder
    3: Run the Prepare.exe file located in the newly extracted Vixen 2.0 folder
    4: Done! The file should be converted for Vixen 2.x, and can now be copied into your Vixen 2.1 sequence folder for use

    If you have trouble converting it, you could post a link here if you want.

    Hope that helps,
    Mike.

    Possibly. One of my other clients complained about a problem with their mail yesterday and it was a crashed table. Let me look.....

    Edit: It sure was. Apparently my host had a problem with mySQL the other day and it went down mid-transaction. Looks like it hit them and me. Everything is fixed now. Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks for this. As a newbie, I badly needed the sequences. I only am running 72 channels as of now.

    Holy resurrected threads batman!! Last reply was over 7 years ago! You're better using the more modern sequences from the xlights google share.

    DrewDennis, are they available in Vixen format (.vix), or do you know of a conversion routine?

    Most of Mike's sequences were made back when even the first Vixen sequencer was fairly new and a show with 64 channels was considered "large." Back then, sequencing was a channel-by-channel, cell-by-cell activity -- there was none of this wild and woolly grouping, sub-grouping and object-oriented stuff. Pixels (at least those available for commercial purchase) hadn't been invented yet, and Vixen3 wasn't even in the back of anyone's mind. Xlights at that time (if it existed) was a basic, neophyte player, not a sequencer of any sort.

    So take these notes to heart when downloading Mike's sequences. A lot of them are very, very good, but if you're using one of the new sequencers, they may or may not even convert over without some tweaking. YMMV

    Vixen import the Fseq file and convert it, but I am not sure if it will with that old version of the file....but as dirknerkle said - if it works, you'll have a bunch of tweaking!

    I ask because I don't see an import in the Vixen software, anywhere. There is an "export", but no import that I can see.
