    Default Vixen 3 all effects don't work when sequencing

    Hello, I am having some issues and I don't know what to do??
    I just got my controller to work using a code given to me from another member.
    I set up a new controller with the new code and a display preview, but when I went to program a new sequence to test the controller none of the effects would work. I drag one down onto the grid and nothing shows up but a grey dotted box. WHen I push play nothing happens on the controller of the preview.
    Does anyone have any thoughts?
    Thanks! Banjoman

    Need to know a few things. What kind of controller? Is controller set up in Vixen? Did you patch the channels to the controller? Are your models set up correctly? Is the controller set to output to lights?

    hey, thanks for your reply
    It is an arduino controller 32 channels, I did patch the channels, and the models are set up correctly. I'm pretty sure that it is set to output to lights but I wil check
    Thanks again!

    the grey dotted box doesn't sound like you are getting the effect created. Post a picture of an effect you are working on.

    I'm not familiar with Arduino but I'm sure others can help you.

    The first two grey boxes are just the normal alternating effect, the third is the candle flicker and it does work.

    So, yes, you must have set the color of the element to red when you set it up. Vixen will apply the effect color to only the same color strings. This feature allows group effects (think whole house) to only affect the strings of the color used. It is frequently used on super string mega trees. Super strings are strands made of 2 or more colors combined together and then you define the mega tree as one thing with multiple colors that do not mix together. Then when you apply effects, you select the color and only those strings light up.
