  4. Thank you to all who offered suggestions. I tried HD but they had variety packs. But it did give me an opportunity to identify the size. With that I found these on Amazon - Size 10 Silicon O Rings. Came in today and fit nice and snug.

  5. I would. One reason is that if you eBay these you are selling retail. A newbie is going to appreciate that they come already updated and they now have one less thing to learn on Day 1. An experienced Lighter may have more confidence in buying from you because 1) if they take a firmware update and still work they are likely in good shape and 2) if you were update them you probably aren't "Bob's selling junk I found at the Pawn or storage locker on eBay" and are more credible in your item description. First thing I do when I buy used controllers is firmware updates so obviously I know ho

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

They have only been used for couple of nights for my display the last 2 years. Very little hours on the lights These are the same type of domes and light that are used for many outdoor venues. I have many more pictures that I can email if interested. Here is what I have Qty 2 280W Beam & Spot Moving Head Lights Qty 2 Outside rain proof domes with mounting brackets Qty 2 DMX ca

  14. I felt the 10 W lights were under powered for my use. So I use those pointed directly at the street for a wow affect. The 50 watt ones. And I have eight of them are all pointed at the house from the Fenceline. And it lights up everything

  16. Not sure what kind of lights you're using, I use RGB strip lights and icicles around the roof line. Mine are under the soffit and the strips are there permanently now. I use them all year for the different Holidays each month. Mine face out, but I have seen people face them in to wash the walls. My house has a pinkish hue to it, so when i tried to "wash" the walls, it changed the colors too much. If you look at about the 7:08 mark you can see how i did them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5i2F72IyBY

  17. I no longer do roofs and I live in a single level house. I use Plastic Gutter clips (Gutter edge) . Commercial Christmas Hardware brand I ordered from Home Depot. These were great for Vinyl gutter at my old location, but were a bear to REMOVE from the Metal gutters ..The good thing about these is the also will slide under composition shingles, take a multitude of bulb/string sizes. For places without gutter (includes Vertical), I used cup or L hooks and mini bungee when tension needs to be maintained. (cup hooks are also a great way to support cables)

  19. I haven't had any burn out from turning them on and off rapidly in a sequence, that is what they do. However I do know to never dim / fade them. JR

  20. Yes, strobes should ONLY be either on or off - NEVER dimmed. I don't specifically know about turning them on and off rapidly, but normally you would not need to do that. I would guess that like an air conditioner, once you turn them off, you should wait some amount of time - although I would think that anything more than 10 seconds would be fine.

  21. I concur with Mr P. It's a steep learning curve for this year. From your description I think I would create multiple previews for the various sections or several sections and import using those. That way they will match what is in the sequences and avoid the mismatch archiving of channels. Since your channel counts are relatively low for each section (compared to pixels) it should be fairly straightforward to create the previews. There are several video tutorials on the LOR YouTube channel that might help.. There is also a website called Luminous Harmony, which has just posted s

  22. OK, this is getting way off the original topic. About 30 years ago I was renting the house on the left side of the photo. It's a little hard to tell, but the next door neighbor's yard is three to four feet higher, and the property line was at the top of the slope between the lots. We had a sprinkler line just on our side of the property line. Because the dirt eroded, the corner of the sprinkler line ended up exposed. Entertainingly, that pipe is still visible whenever Google Street View took this photo (the red arrow). The neighbor's gardener kept hitting the exposed PVC pipe and breakin

  24. Put this in your post will send I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share.

  29. I posted about this in a different thread last night titled "New Version 5.5" but I just want to make sure this is its own focused topic since the other thread has gone multiple directions. Error report is that when a sequence gets played at 1/2 or 3/4 speed, all effects appear as shimmer effects even though the actual effect commands in the Sequencer remain unchanged. Normal and 2x speed are fine. Dropping back down to 5.4.2 temporarily since I sequence almost exclusively in 1/2 speed - looking forward to getting to use all of the new 5.5.0 features soon!

  31. Especially hard on the ears when you volunteer to sequence a singing faces sequence to a song that no one in one hundred years would put in their show, except the requester. But I would rather hear the song than like the sequencing pioneers who only used 1-2 mins of a song and cut it off. Right when it was just starting to get good. JR

  32. I just updated to the 5.5.0 version and i do see all of the new changes as well as the strobing at 1/2 and 3/4 speed playback. I'm also having an issue with the grid view of the sequencer. it changes color as i scroll through a sequence and will change colors as i'm programming. very annoying. sometimes one color for all grids and sometimes multiple colors across the board. Is this a fix or is it me?

  34. The 10 watt wont blind anyone so I have my 16 directed at the guests. The 50 I use as an up light pointed up into the tree branches. Wasn't enough so this year I bought three more 50s. In this video the 50 is mounted on the left tree at curb and directed at the right tree in yard to light the branches.

  36. From what you are explaining that is the Spring sale. The prices are advertised before hand and at exactly 9:00 pm eastern time, you can start adding stuff to your basket. This sale has limited items. The summer sale has unlimited items so there is no reason for LOR to show the sale prices ahead of time. I don't recall seeing advanced prices for the summer sale and this sale lasts almost 2 weeks contrary to the Spring sale, everything could be gone within 24 hours. Make your list of what you want and then check the prices once the sales start. You have plenty of time to buy, not lik

  39. I updated the video on my web site to a 16 x 50 tree. It doesn't look too bad. I cut the intensity of the tree to 75% and changed to a darker green. The regular green really overshadows the text. http://bobw.us/citrus/ Bob

  40. BobW does have a valid point. Very hard to get text to work on a pixel tree. For the most part, I don't do much with text on my tree. The only song I have with text is Brian Bruderer's version of Carol of the Bells (starting at 1:50). I have my website in two of my announcements, but it is slowly scrolling horizontal at about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom. My tree as shown below is 12 x 50 pixels. It does look better with my 26 x 100 tree arrangement.

  41. Doesn't look like a tree to me. 😁 As soon as you pinch the top together, it's not going to be readable. Neither the horizontal nor vertical will look worth a damn. Matrix yes, tree no. My tree is 16 x 25. I tried squishing down the font size to get multiple lines on the tree. It did not work. Bob

  42. In all honesty, you are not going to get Light up Citrus horizontally into 16 pixels wide and have it readable. About the lowest resolution you can possibly make is three pixels for the character (and some you can't do it in three) plus one more for a space between characters. So Citrus becomes C=4, i=2, t=4, r=4, u=4, & s=3 for a total of 21 pixels wide at an absolute minimum. You beat me to the vertical option. Oriented a different way. Your choice.

  44. Pretty sure I did a bunch of the faces by request. That was probably the closed thread. You may want to look up the member in that thread and PM him and see 1- if he sequenced it and 2- if he would be willing to share I do not think anyone has ever posted about Hamilton other that that person and now you. I know my great friend James Morris didn't sequence it. JR
