    Default animation effects on coping or creating new in a sequence

    Hi Joe, I was wondering if you could help clear somethig up or explain it to me a little better. I want to do a singing christmas tree in my display this year, I have a sequence that I got from holidaycoro that contains the four singing christmas trees in it with all the effects, my problem is that do i need to create my own channel or effect the way i want my display to be set up with all the arches, mini trees, and mega tree and etc., in a new file and save that to my library so i can use it when i build my other sequences for my show and then just copy and paste the sequence i got from them in that or do i have to create two different files in my library? I am only using one of the sining trees cause thats all i build this year.I have watch your video on thriller several tismes, so do i need to do that first and then added what i got from holidaycoro into it, because when i open their sequence there is no channel for mouth word or lead vocal, so do i need to put one into my raw channel so i can get the singing tree to work? I hope i explain my problem correctly

    Question

    Are you using the holidaycoro Trees for the Face Animation or are you just trying to use the audio/sequence and construct some sort of face in HLS?

    Thanks

    just using the audio/sequence and construct a face in HLS. I built my own (1) singing tree for my display instead of using 4 of them

    The answer is YES.

    Is it a simple click of the mouse -- NO.

    It appears the holidaycoro Christmas Trees are single channel animation sequences where a separate channel controls each eye and mouth position.

    Can you import that into a HLS Animation --- NO!!! --- meaning you can not import it into face, mouth, eye, etc and work in HLS Animation.

    Can you import the sequence so that the faces, eyes, and mouth work ---- YES Driving single channels as per the holidaycoro design OR --- maybe --- with work --- driving face positions in a matrix or Mega Tree.

    If it will work --- here is how.

    Assuming that you can get the animation imported as single channels --- just drive those channels in HLS to the holidaycoro tree and it works.

    OR

    Lets think Matrix ---- identify what pixels need to be associated with each eye/mouth position.

    We will use SEGMENTS to associate those pixels to a single Segment channel that will behave as the single channel counterpart did.

    Copy the CHANNEL (yes - HLS has Complete Channel Delete, Copy, Paste capability -- under Manage Channels)

    Manage Channels -- Copy/Paste Channel menu selection --- select the name of one of you imported channels that controls eyes or mouth --- you need to click twice on the NAME -- first time to start multiple selection, second time to end. Since its the same channel -- click twice.

    Manage Channels Copy/Paste menu selection --- now you are in the PASTE side of the equation. Click on the NAME of the SEGMENT that you are going to use to control that feature of Animation.

    Do that for all and you should now have a pixel/matrix face.

    I left a lot out -- like Display Groups, etc .... If you can't do what I left out --- what I have stated will be difficult to understand.

    Don't think you get it the first time.

    Play --- make mistakes --- JUST DON'T HIT SAVE!!!!! --- exit come back in --- all is as it was --- play some more.

    When you fully understand --- then go for the gold.

    I did not allow a channel to be pasted on to a Segment.

    This process gave me reason to open the process up.

    SO --- wait until I release 23M or later --- so the Paste to Segment will work.

    Hope that helps.

    Version 23M released --- allows Channels to be pasted onto Segments.
