    Default Help! How do I convert files to V3

    General help needed! I am not a computer wiz, I've down loaded the file from the sequencearmory, it is a xlight file. How do I get it to convert to a vixen 3 file so I can sequence? I've opened Vixen 3 selected tools>Import sequence> but when I search for the file I don't see it. But when I go to the download folder it's there. Please help.

    IIRC there are a few steps that are needed to accomplish this or it may have been Vixen to Xlights.
    Anyways,I'm sure one of the other guys will chime in and give a more in depth answer. Good luck.

    I don't think there is an xLights to Vixen converter. And there is no xLights save as Vixen.

    There is a basic vixen to xlights converter but nothing for xlights to vixen.

    OK, thanks. I guess I have to sequence the old fashion way.

    You really have 3 options at this point and need to choose the best based on future effort.

    1. Sequence yourself.
    2. Find a vixen 3 source of free sequences.
    3. Switch sequencers.

    The latter only makes sense if the sequencing effort outweighs the effort to resetup your show.

    Thanks

    There are a bunch of sequences available in this thread... they are scattered throughout the thread.

    There is not a good way to do this, and I am not sure this even works any more or if the Vixen team would ever approve, but

    In Xlights there is a Covert Tool and it will let you convert a xlights sequence file to other types, one of which is a Vixen 2.1 ".vix" file. Then in Vixen 3 you Open the the .VIX sequence and map it to your Vixen 3 display. The main problem here is that you have to have your display built in Vixen 2.1

    this results in a lot of tiny effects. it should work.


    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.
