leaping arches
« on: July 25, 2008, 10:54:52 PM »

With leaping arches being so popular, I was wondering can these be used in your software
and work in the LOR mode?

Thanks

I am going to have 1 arch this year.  In HLD I just drew out a string of lights on my planned arch 7 times to represent the 7 channels.  I have attached an image that I created in HLD so that you can see the arch.  It was very simple to do and yes it looks good on the animation.

Yes leaping arches are easy to do....

I made an arch in PhotoShop....  cut the arch into the the number of segments you want....  Save each segment as its own picture....  Re assemble the arch in Holidaysoft....  Sellect the correct channel for each segment......   you can make as many arches you need from the segments you imported....  Want a different color just take the segments into a paint program and color them the color you want....

Hi,

I am trying to workout also how to make arches.

Is there any chance of sending a copy  on how you used Photoshop.

i am using the trial program.

I don't have PhotoShop.  Can you export it to something else and send it over.  I would like to see how it looks as well.  Post a picture of your HLD image ...
