    Default HLS - 2013 Introduction Training Video

    This is a whole hour of Training on HLS --- Just getting Started and on Raw Channel Management.

    I stated in the video that I had a bug in Dimming Curve assignment. Turns out not be a bug in the software - just me.

    I was trying to assign the wrong Type of dimming curve to channels - and HLS was smart enough not to let it happen.

    I have removed several OLD YouTube videos on HLS --- they were confusing people because things have changed so much.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Joe

    WOW again
    Only took an hour and a half to watch an hour of video.

    Really understood folders this time and see where they will be used.

    #1 Noticed that you used underscores instead of spaces in your folder and channel names.
    Is that your habit, or a requirement?

    #2 The folders are such a great improvement, any chance of having folders in the select channels to work with screen?
    Would make it so much easier to select folders instead of groups of channels.
    Thinking it through you still might need the ability to expand a folder so you could select specific channels, or reorder the ones that were there into a display group.

    #3 Probably getting ahead of myself. Can you assign pixel plane channels to segments??
    So a pixel mega tree with 32 strands could assign each strand to its own segment.

    Cant wait for the next video.

    Joel
    Lets get serious, I have over 10,000 channels on my back, just where do you want to start counting.

    You can work with individual PixelPlane channels.

    If you assigned a strand to a segment - that would mean you intended to have every pixel in that strand behave exactly the same way for effects placed on the segment.

    Is that what your were thinking of?

    YES
    To create retro effects that looked like strands without revealing that you have full pixel capability.

    Joel

    The vertical bar should be able to do this, but last year there were issues.
    Also one of my favorite effects is waht I call a fan
    You do a ramp up of each strand starting from the center,
    or a ramp down starting from the outside.
    See the start of this video

    This is great, esp since I'm planning on using HLS for 2013's show. The thing I'm really struggling with though is my preview. No matter what I do, I cannot get the bmp image to display. Can those of you that have it working offer some tips? Resolution, # of colors, etc? Also, any idea what the minimum hardware requirements are in terms of recommended CPU/RAM? I'll be running approx 1,500 pixels and about 200 channels of Renard - to start with in HLS and then scale up from there in 2014 and beyond.

    Thanks,

    2015 Plans: More pixels, add more Komby radios, and weld new props!
