    Default CCR sequence to Wizards in Winter

    I took a break from working on my software for a few days to see what I could do with two CCRs. I did a sequence to TSO's Wizards in Winter, a lively song that gives a chance to showcase the abilities of the CCR. You can take a look on youtube at:



    I meant this as a proof of concept, but now I think I'll need to buy two more to add to the 12 I already have!

    Wow .. YouTube has really turned into a snob's paradise. If Brian is using a legit copy of Wizards for his sequence, why is it a copyright violation to post his video ?
    Thanks,

    Sorry the youtube one got blocked. For me it is viewing fine, and my wife views it fine from her work computer, but many are reporting it blocked. Also, the video has the sound dubbed in and in the first version the sound is a little out of synch. There is now a version on vimeo with the sound resynched at:



    Thanks for everyone's patience.

    Not bad at all.

    Question is... how long did it take to sequence those two?

    What I have found is that every sequence I do I spend 12-16 hours on it. It proved true in this case also. It took almost as long to sequence for two as for 12 because with the SuperStar Sequence Editor you deal with effects, not channels, so the amount of time to sequence depends more on the number of effects, and with the 2 ribbons I probably did more effects than with the 12, largely because Wizards in Winter is such an intense song it demanded intense effects at a very fast pace. I was able to also do more because the software has improved since I did the 12. In my copy I have a "group modify" feature that really helped modify groups of effects to to fine tune them into how I wanted. Considering the number of effects it went fast, but we can probably all share the feeling you get when you say "wow that was a cool effect" and then realize that it only covered 1.8 seconds of the song.

    The chase patterns (which I call morphs) are easy to do in the software, and some of the impressive ones did take long at all. The two places where I fill up the ribbons with dots took a long time to do. It is a case where you want them to appear random, and yet fill in somewhat evenly (which isn't really random), it could still be improved but I got tired and settled for the way it is because I have to get back to work on the software!
