    Duration of blinking light cycle

    Maybe I have not been specific enough in my asking: I see that over 40 people have seen this post, but no one reacted up to now. My only question is how to shorten the cycle time of the effect in P3D form 15 secs to 5 secs ? I hope that there is someone who can answer this question.... :scratchch

    When I start P3Dv3 and go to the location of the lighthouse I can see my lighthouse with the light effect nicely but there is one strange thing. The lighthousecharacter is Fl 2 W 5s, which means 2 white flashes every 5 seconds, as far as I know. In FXEditor the effects shows this cycle...

    Tutorial making effects

    I have been struggling with making effects for Prepar3Dv4 for about 1 year now. I opened effects with FXEditor and changed one or more properties to see how this might influence the appearance of the effect. This trial and error approach has resulted in some effects that I use in my sceneries...

    Lighthouse light iso white red fx

    OK hgschnell, I fully understand what you are saying. In the coming days I will revive my Sketchup model and attach some solid parts to cover the sectors. Have to figure out how, but that should be not so difficult. Then I will add two effects in the lighthouse: one red and one white that both...

    FXEditor update

    FXEditor update

    Hi Arno, I noticed that the button Save As in FXEditor does not work. I assume, that there should be a possibility to load a existing fx, make soms changes and then save as with another name. But nothing is happening when I click on the Save as button. Is this my mistake somewhere ?
