  2. Best method to video display

    Mine is also quite wide and there is a tree that makes even the drone method not work well... I have not done that much with shooting video of my display, but several years ago a friend shot it from four locations and edited it together. Take a look at the first video on: http://newburghlights.org/Videos.html
  3. Best method to video display

    I have a drone but I also video with my phone ( Galaxy Note 8) on a tripod. Takes great video... I would ask your neighbor if you could film from their porch.
  4. Playing Devil's Advocate

    Well it depends on personal preference, I don't really like the look of pixels so my choice would be the CTB16PC. I did enter the contest there and on the LOR site as well. I am adding 4 more controllers this year so a free one would be nice. Tom
  5. So with it being my "break time" after all the decorations are put away (ok..well mostly put away!), I thought I'd get some input from y'all. Let's assume for a moment that you had a basic 32 channel Light O Rama AC controller setup (which I do) and you entered the video contest on Wowlights (which I didn't). Which option would you choose to add the most impact to your show? According to their website, these are the prizes: Winners will receive your choice of Light-O-Rama CTB16PC 16 channel light controller (value $259.99), WowLights Dumb RGB Controller (value $289.99), or WowLightsIntelligent E1.31 RGB 4 Output Controller (value $299.99). One day when I figure out how to actually video my display I might enter these contests 😂
  6. I found it very difficult to try and video my display. Unless I hire a drone cameraman, what methods have y'all employed to best capture your display. My display is just too wide. I'd have to stand on my neighbor's porch to capture it! 😂

    I would also love a copy mcas_4380@yahoo.com Thanks
  8. As far as I know, LOR only has a 32 bit version.
  9. right now I'm only pushing the 1 panel so its 162 universes, I'm running straight out of my laptop (powerful year old win10 64 bit) to a Netgear 10/100/1000 router to the BBB. Maybe using 2 BBB's for the one 54 panel setup would help? plus LOR reads as 32bit, can that be an issue too that I'm running 32bit on a 64bit OS? I doubt it but i did just notice that
  10. I know I asked this over on the FPP forum, what is your networking configuration?
  11. Thank you anyway, you're always a big help and i appreciate you replying right away! Maybe someone else can chime in on converting more easily for LOR to play videos and best file sizes do LOR doesn't choke on them
  12. Never done anything with video in LOR, so no I have no recommend.

    Dorthy was hot 😎
  14. anything you recommend on the PC end, i use a Mac mainly but am obvioulsy using a pc for LOR. Also, have you found an easier way to get a video into LOR? Other programs make it so simple to download any file and drop it in, In LOR though I have to rip the video lets say a small dance clip from youtube, then use a converter to get it to AVI format because none of the downloaders download in AVI, then drag it into V-Dub to convert it once again into the AVI raw format that LOR accepts. Seems like a lot vs everyone just allowing you to drop in most of the popular formats. Im willing to pay for the software but it seems like converting 1 or 2 too many times then whats really needed
  15. Use a video editing program to edit the video content - same concept as using mp3gain to standardize the audio levels between songs.
  16. I know when we setup a prop in preview manager we can set the one setting to "pixel curve" which adjust (I'm assuming) the brightness, gamma and so on of the pixel output ((please correct me if I'm wrong) The issue I'm having with it is it looks GREAT with the feature on during most of my sequence but a few parts of my song i use darker videos like the scene from Christmas Vacation at night and dancing Bruno Mars scenes and they are really really dark with this feature on, If i turn the setting off then the night time videos look great but then the rest of the normal videos like "Trolls" dancing look a little washed out. Is there anyway to make adjustments to these videos in LOR S5 in the sequence? thanks!
  17. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    always good to have extra! I order extra especially when paying a lot for shipping like from Ray Wu stuff in China, I ordered i think like 6 extra p10's just because. Now if i could just get the image to look smooth, its driving me crazy!! The image keeps breaking up on me as stuff scrolls or videos play. I can't seem to get this issue fixed. Even running a pattern like "butterfly" in LOR (or xlights) causes lines to break up and distortion
  18. Same here - I ordered more that I need for my two panels. Useful thing to have around...
  19. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    Already ordered 4 of the distro 8 boards. Don't know how many I'll need. I'm adding around 4,000 more pixels to my display this year too. So I'll probably need to use them all....
  20. A RigRunner is a power distribution & fuse panel. It's not what I would expect anyone else to use for power distribution. I have not received the distro boards and wanted to have something to fuse my wiring, and I had this available. You can see it above my panel in the video I posted late Friday evening. This is the distribution boards I have on order: https://www.crockettfantasyoflights.com/product/cfol-distro-8/ My recommendation is to use something to fuse the panels.
  21. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    What is this? And do I need one??
  22. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    Well.... I'm getting on the P10 panel bandwagon. Just ordered a 36 panel kit and an extra P10 scroller and BBB from .http://www.diyledexpress.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=75&products_id=461 Going to make two matrix. One 2x4 for the Tune To sign and MIIP info. The other will be a 3x9 for my kitchen window. Guess I got almost 300 posts to read through to get an idea of what to do...
