    do you have your serial port device plugged in? It needs to be present to configure it.

    You are quick! So after I got to thinking, the port configuration I was using was actually when I was testing out an Arduino+WS2811 strands. I was trying to delete the thread but was unable to do so.

    So now I have a new question, but this may be geared toward Falcon Pi Player instead of Vixen...I am using a Falcon PiCap with 389 WS2811 pixels(192 pixels for output 1 and 197 pixels for output 2). I created a Generic Serial controller with 1,167 channel outputs. I created 389 elements and patched them accordingly. When I export I get the warning "Some of the selected controllers do not support universes. These controllers will not be included in the universes file. Some manual FPP output configuration will be required. I have included my Falcon Pi Player Output configuration.

    Don't read more into that warning than it actually says. Vixen can't configure the universes file because that controller type isn't configured in the universes file. Those channels will still be in the fseq that you export. You just have to set up the outputs in the FPP manually.

    Yep, I got the sequence transferred over to FPP and all is well. Thank you!
