  1. Oh no! Sorry you won't be able to make it David. I was looking forward to chatting with you!! Hoping you have a speedy recovery!
  2. So, I know I am a bit late to the topic, but I think I have a solution for you, using PE. I too was trying to get an "arch chase" type look using PE, and after fighting with PE for a while I finally figured it out. . . Now let's see if I can put it into words... If you want to complete one full arch chase in .5 seconds try using the "curtain effect as follows: - Turn on the first 3 "blocks" or first three tenths of a second (depending on how you have your timing grid broken down) with the curtain effect being: Curtain Edge - Right Movement - Close Repeat Mode - Once_fit_to_duration - Then turn on the last 2 "blocks" or last two tenths of a second with the curtain effect being: Curtain Edge - Left Movement - Open Repeat Mode - Once_fit_to_duration And this should give you a nice smooth leaping arch/chase sequence for the arches. To give you an idea of what it will look like, that's how I go the effect around the 1:23 mark of this video: Hope this helps a little, and good luck!! ~Matt
  3. I use a Hero3. I'm not overly familiar with GoPro models, but I am betting mine is one of the older ones. I didn't like how grainy the videos turned out. They were just not nearly as clear as what I was hoping for. Speaking of DSLR after the gym tonight, I'm heading to Best Buy to look at cameras. . . Who knew that a light show would be a 365 day a year job?! In regards to putting up, we start labor day weekend. (Not with props in the yard) but trying to get all of the pixels on the house, and usually lining the roof with the traditional lights so that if the weather takes a turn for the worse, the hardest part is already over. As soon as Halloween ends, the Christmas starts coming out!! Good luck!! Let me know if you have any DSLR tips!!
  4. I think Herbet was a very interesting set up! Just goes to show that bigger is not always better!
  5. Beautiful Display!
  6. I can't wait for all the new things our 2017 show is going to bring. . . Now that I've gone back and watched the video, our show seemed so..... small! I guess I'm just use to seeing the visualizer for 2017!
  7. We have each been making a car payment to ourselves every month for several years now, and thankfully that has allowed us to settle on the Model S. (And a different new car for me too) Had it not been for my partner being very persistent on saving (and us giving up a lot of "fun stuff" in life for a while) I don't think the Model S would be in our budget either. . . I don't think I'll ever be able to look at a pack of instant Ramen again without getting PTSD to the years of saving!
  8. ^ I was a bit shocked by the cost of shipping when I ordered from them. The shipping was nearly as much as the tubes... But it was well worth it. Can't wait for you to get your arches up and running!! I love mine!
  9. I used a GoPro for recording all of our 2016 videos. . . And I HATED how they turned out. The only plus was the wide view. Unless I can find a better setting, I'll be buying a DSLR camera for the 2017 show.
  10. I'm using the lights HC suggested with them: https://www.holidaycoro.com/Smart-Pixel-Rectangle-RGB-Module-with-6-Inch-p/662.htm
  11. Haha, I was thinking the same thing!! December will be here before we know it. But you know how life is, things never go as planned. Hoping to have more free time after next Friday, which means I should be able to get the rest of the canes done by the end of next weekend! *hopefully*
  12. Pretty cool!!! If only we were getting a Model X instead of a Model S!!! . . . I just can't stand the way the Model X's look. Oh well, to each their own!!
  13. Well, I finally got ONE of the corocanes finished. I think it turned out great. Can't wait to have these in the show!! Here's a quick preview:
  14. Well, after spending the majority of today working on a Lady Gaga song for our Halloween show. . . I think I have officially found the most annoying thing to sequence. I usually enjoy most Lady Gaga music, but the song I picked was about to drive me insane!! She kept screaming the same 3 words over and over and over and over and over for a good 30 second, and I about screamed!! I don't think using noise canceling headphones helps any either, because her screaming was all I could hear. . . Yeah, it's time to take a break from that song. Thankfully I got all of the vocals done, and now it's just going back and filling in the back ground music. Oh. Joy.
  15. From what I've read people don't leave the lights out all year because the sun makes the wires really brittle, causing them to crack, and eventually loose their ability to keep out water. I think if it were pratical to leave lights up all year most of us would, just so we wouldn't have to fight with the weeks of putting up and taking down everything!!
