Here’s the board

    I just want to make sure you have the right version of the addin. I think that jaw sequencer link had the old one. It should be this one. http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...t=object+suite

    I will add a big "Positive Plug" for Chris's plugin, it works brilliantly, even when imported into xLights for playout, see :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlbAJ2HyWiQ

    I used his Audacity conversion to get the mouth movement, all the rest was done "live", channel, by channel, watching the results on the prop during playback and making adjustments as required.

    I don't use Vixen 3 but I believe you can import Vixen 2 into it. You might be able to use Vixen 2 for sequencing the servo stuff then import it into Vixen 3 to do the rest.

    Yes you can import V2 sequences into V3.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    V3 has built in lip sync software that converts text to phenoms and then maps the phenoms to channels. You still need to manually sync the phenoms to the music.

    Chris how do you get your levels to look like they do in your video? Mine are different fades and not vertical bars
