Trying to get over to XLights from LOR, Newer videos?
« on: January 09, 2018, 10:54:30 AM »
Hey guys, glad I'm finally on board the Xlights route and loving it so far being I'm adding a ton of DMX channels with P10 panels. I have been using LOR S5 beta and my show ran great this past christmas using 8 LOR pixie controllers but now i want to add DMX and such and LOR is so slow when i add the panels and Xlights runs great BUT how can i get all of my songs (7 so far) from LOR to Xlights in the latest version? All of the videos i see are from older versions and it seems a things have changed all over and its not working, As soon as I go to import a LMS file i get a invalid token error but i can't even tell if i am doing this right. I am literally starting XLights from scratch and LOR i have a ton if props and channels

thank you for any info you can provide. I have searched and watched a few videos but none of them seem to make sense based on later versions

If its sequences from S5 I'm not sure the LMS files will convert.  We haven't done any work on the conversion code and are not aware of what changes they made in S5.

Ok sounds good, Are there plans to work on this at all? I would pay to have them all be able to convert vs having to redo all 7 of my sequences

Nobody has talked about it.  We don't know what they've done.  Its possible that they could become different enough that converting is not an option.  I really think they want their users to have to choose between the programs instead of being able to work with both like we provided in the past.  If you want to do pixels they want you to use Pixel Editor.  If users want to use xLights they really need to convert over before getting deep into S5.
