    Default Question on Preview

    vixen forum question.JPG

    So in this image, when I do a wipe from bottom to top of whole house. The mega tree comes on very last like with the second story window lights. I have played around and it seems the TOP of the tree is the location point vixen uses to "trigger", for lack of the appropriate word, the lights to come on on queue.

    Am I wrong? Is there a way to signify the BOTTOM is the trigger rather than top? If not, how is this supposed to be set up?

    When looking at the Location properties in display setup, I see a X Y and Z position on each strand. Im guessing Z is the trigger?? what should that be to designate bottom?

    Far Right

    This is NOT a pixel tree these are RGBW * 16 strands of lights total of 64.

    I suspect the issue may be where the string start is located. Did you draw top-to-bottom? It is suspicious that the string lights when you get to the end at the top.

    BTW: This is pure Wild ... guess. Just trying to figure out what may be wrong or gather enough info to help the devs resolve the issue.

    You should open a ticket for this issue.

    I used the megatree smart object (drug to create the way it intends, then configured it for the # of strings. and its working great in vixen (wipes right and left) except the wipes up and down, it thinks the tree is way up high rather than low.

    I have not used that wizard to draw my trees. Does it provide an anchor point that you can move? There may also be some X,Y,Z positioning information in the lower left pane that you can adjust.

    Yeah I see the z set to 1, if I assume that is top, what value would bottom be?

    z is depth aka distance from the street.

    y should be vertical and x should be horizontal

    I have played with this some before with a friends setup and I could change things up so it would light from bottom with a wipe up but then when wipe down is done it is backwards

    Would be great if it would light the tree when the wipe is at its mid point.
