Title: XML to FSEQ in Xlights
Post by: Advntrus1 on December 26, 2018, 07:30:25 PM
I know I can't be the only one with this issue, but I can't find a post that addresses this for me.
  When I save a sequence in Xlights, it saves as an XML file. When I try to upload the XML file to FPP (PI3B+ running 2.4), FPP will not accept the XML file. I cannot find where the FSEQ is saved, if at all.

Am I doing something wrong?

Do I need an XML to FSEQ converter? If so, where can I find it?
Thank you in advance.Shawn

XLights automatically saves an FSEQ file when you save your sequence (at least it does for me).  it should be in the same location as the XML file.

It should be in your xLights show directory unless you set up a subfolder for the FSEQ

In windows file explorer in the view menu turn on file extensions so you can tell which file is which.

I frequently "sort" my Show Directory to get the newest files at the top. But, you need to have a "Date Modified" column to work best. Sometimes, Windows will only show a Date Created header and that isn't always helpful.

As Jim said, make sure Windows is showing the file extensions. Its important.
