How Do I Get Started?

 

If you are new to the Light-O-Rama software, click the "How Do I Get Started?" link. It will open the help file where you can learn what a sequence is, and then start learning how to use the Sequencer.

In the second section, you can click the links to quickly start a new animation or musical sequence.

 

 

Recent Sequences

 

At the bottom of the page is a list of sequences that have been recently viewed. Click on a link to open the sequence. The recent sequences shown on the Start Page are the same ones listed on the File > Recent Files sub-menu, plus more (if you work with a lot of sequences).

 

You can control the number of recent sequences shown on the Start Page by going to Startup tab of Sequencer Preferences.

Sometimes you have sequences on the Recent Sequences list that you no longer use. You can remove these entries by clicking the "Clean Up" button.
