THURSDAY CLASSES

Light-O-Rama General Overview
This introductory class will teach you about the multiple LOR technologies and controllers available to use in your display, how to decide which controller(s) to use, and how those items would be connected. This class will also include an overview of how the programs in the LOR software suite work together as an intro to program-specific classes at later times.

Sitting Down To Sequence: Making Sense of the Music
Once your controllers are purchased and your layout is planned, the next question becomes: 'Now how do I make a sequence?' If you don't want to look at pre-done options, the answer is simple: let music be your creative guide! Join this software agnostic class and learn how to look at your layout through the lens of music so you can create a great plan before you ever place your first effect.

LOR S6 Preview Editor: The Basics
The Light-O-Rama Preview Editor is the foundation for creating sequences - first you need to design your virtual layout! This class for beginners or those looking to upgrade from S4 will cover the basics of using the S6 Preview Editor to create both AC and pixel props, group your elements, and prepare your sequence grid configuration for efficient use. {Computer strongly recommended for this class}

LOR S6 Sequencer: The Basics
This introduction to the Light-O-Rama Sequencer program is a great option for those brand new to LOR, or those upgrading from S4 to S6. This class will cover the basic tools and options for creating effects, exploring the foundational buttons and menus for sequencing traditional lights, dumb RGB, and touch on elements for sequencing smart RGB. {Computer strongly recommended for this class}

LOR S6 Control Panel and Phone App: The Basics
In LOR S6, the Control Panel combined multiple programs into one easy location for hardware testing and show control. Learn about the different options in the Control Panel, like testing your lights, setting your show playlist, picking your season schedule, and building an SD card.
