  1. Have the file open, then go to Sequence--> Assign New Preview. It's about halfway down the list!

  3. It occurred to me that I should share this here. Everything is light O Rama. The pumpkin Arch, the floodlights, and both animatronic puppets. All runs from a mini MP3 director. this is a parody some friends and I did of a song from Frozen. Rewritten for Halloween. One of several songs we do for the folks waiting in line. Love is a Rotting Corpse

  4. Another newbie wanting to jump on the bandwagon of animation. First let me start by saying y'all are AMAZING!!!! Next, when are the absolute best times to buy from here? I see Summer but like around what months and dates? Now, onto my MAIN question, I currently have all LED lights, everything ran off 1 - 20amp circuit with one set of outlets on each side of the house. I have upgraded the electrical just because and now have an additional set of outlets on the non-garage side on its own 20amp circuit. I've added a 4 bank of outlets on the garage side with its own 20amp circuit. I installed

  5. Are you using an add-on video card or the one built in to the mother board? I had a problem like that on the refurb computer I bought that exceeds what's needed to sequence and run shows except for the on-board video driver. I couldn't even install S5. I was having the same issues in not being able to update the onboard video driver. So I bought a cheap video add on card ($25) and installed it. I haven't had any problems since, and now I CAN update the drivers on the add-on card if I need to. Just a thought.

  7. If you want 48, tell the software 48 and it will ignore the last two. If you want you can just cut them off and seal the wires and use them as spares. I can't speak specifically to the Pixie but 100 12V pixels is typically the max before voltage drop begins to affect color. Length of the lead in also needs to be factored in. You can also get away with more distance and pixels if you keep the intensities down to about 30 percent. You should get away with 105 nodes on one port but the best thing is to test YOUR configuration and see if it looks good to you. Obviously if you want 105 y

  9. I have used these for 4 years now with no issues at all. They hold up to very high winds too.

  10. I love these things, I have been using them for about six years and have about a thousand of them. I have never used pvc pipe in them but I use the top clip for my C9 pixabulbs on all my roof caps on ridges. Easy to put on and take off and they stay put even in the wind.

  11. I have always had a Pirates of the Caribbean sequence in my display. In fact, I've created several versions throughout the years. Soon to be another one using Hans Zimmer's Live in Prague Pirates of the Caribbean Medley. It is a long medley so I'm only sequencing the last approximately four minutes of the song. I'm planning on adding two new matrices to my display this year and this is my first attempt at sequencing them.

  12. Oh, it absolutely does. Different manufacturers, and even different batches from the same manufacturer will often have color differences. That is the reason that a standard recommendation is that you always buy all the pixels for a prop and spares, at the same time.

  13. So are the screens with the pirates like a matrix display or pixel wall? I'm a newbie and am fascinated!!!!! What are the dimensions of these displays and what are you figuring rough cost in supplies to build these?

  14. Finally, you can zoom and position the playback window. This is a great addition and really makes the preview window much more useful with larger displays. And much more versatile than the existing zoomed prop playback. Now i can sequence a specific prop and see it without having to keep the whole preview on the screen. Combined with the existing dimming option, i found that i can zoom right into the area required and then darken the background image and i get a good view at what it is doing. Plus you can move and resize and move the window while playing with scroll bars or the mouse.

  15. So I finally got into the spirit this year and spent the last 2 days finishing up the newest addition of a 6 foot tall singing angel. The angel is coroplast cut with a jigsaw and place onto a pressure treated plywood backing with a 2" overlap or coro all the way around and a circle cut out of the angel face for the nodes to fit easier. Leaving just shy of 2" of plywood around the face for support. Luckily I did not have to draw it on the coroplast. I tweaked it on the computer and cut two halve of a 23" wide decal since I am in the decal business it made it much easier to trace the outl

  17. Nice. Looks like you based that on the LOR Singing Trees mouth pattern of 4 mouth movements? Wish I could build stuff like that, I've tried and I always failed miserably in trying to build my own stuff. That's why I always try to buy stuff like the LOR Singing Trees pre-made, just easier for me that way. Unfortunately if you can find pre-made stuff, it's usually too cost prohibitive for me, being on a fixed income really doesn't help when you want to add new things to a display. If my late father was still alive, he could do all kinds of stuff like this, it always seemed to come

  19. LOR also offers a DIO32 card to which you can add a relay card. There are 8 independent relays rated at 16 amp/250 volt. Those would provide many options for controlling motors.

  20. I'm sure there's a solution in LOR, but I noticed that other vendors offer controllers for motors they sell. Case in point, Monster Guts has several prop controllers and a media trigger. If I were so inclined, is there a way to connect these other devices to an LOR controller, or would I need to use whatever compatible LOR solutions exist for the device? One of these days, I'd like to have one of those scarecrows on a pole spin slowly, but I have yet to find a way to design it.
