  2. Preview Prop number of "bulbs"???

    If your pixel tree has 50 bullet nodes, then the prop must be defined as having 50 nodes. Here's another idea... You could create the tree using the lines-connected shape. In the attached example I've done this using 50 pixels and 7 line segments. Done this way, the single block effect works as expected - lighting the string from one end to the other. Matt
  3. That is exactly the reason for null pixels,
  4. Holiday Coro AlphPix BUG Alert

    Good to know. What exactly is the intention of using Null pixels ? Just reshape the data for longer cable lengths between the controller and pixels ?
  5. CCR Question

    Jim, Did you get your CCR arches working with the new preview? If not, perhaps you could send me the sequence? To answer your other question: until we add better support for CCR macro channels in S5, you can create the macro channels manually using the predefined shape "hidden" (one prop per macro channel).

  7. Best method to video display

    I'm not an expert, but, for me, the camera lens was the key to capturing the full width of my yard. I used a Canon Rebel T6 with a Canon Macro Lens EF 100mm 1:2.8. to record New Years Eve 2017. This is certainly not the inexpensive way to go but I love this camera because it works in all kinds of weird situations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpcu2iwqkhY

  12. Playing Devil's Advocate

    I think you should build your display the way you want it and not try to please other people's ideas and then if you happen to win a contest that's just a bonus for your creativity .
  13. What to do next year…

    Go with smart pixels! Do all outlines using pixel mounting strips from Holiday Coro or Boscoyo.

    @Tim Dorr for ventilation 1 or 2 (depending on how hot the climate is) of something like these vents (with a 12V fan) at the top of the box and 1or 2 vents (with insect screen to stop bugs getting in) at the bottom of the box should do the trick. If you put a shelf in the box make sure it has holes/slots in it so airflow can move from bottom to top. Those vents should be available on amazon or hardware stores

  18. What to do next year…

    If you are thinking going pixels, go 'smart' RGB pixels. Offers much more versatility. You can still treat them as 'dumb' pixels and light them all the same colour, or using the pixel editor make what ever colours and patterns you want. If you think 10 windows is too much this year, just do some of them, then next year add the rest, If you add a little bit each year, not only does it make it less daunting a task, but also gives visitors something new to see next year. Of course some people will tell you to do all 10 windows, doors, garages, eaves and roof outlines in one go, but each to their own.
