    I go thru a lot of ties. Mounting my LED strobes took over 2000! There was one for each bulb plus some extras on each of the 40 strands https://vimeo.com/280309439 I will be sticking with the old fashioned ties.

    May be a good idea for some but not for me. Something else to carry around. Something else to misplace/lose. Different tension for different application throughout my display Cheaper with not buying it. Slows down progress (gotta handle the tool and material). and lastly, manually working zipties by hand has worked fast and flawless for decades.

    I picked up some of these as a test from Boscoyo and they are very impressive. The 10mm coro is very strong and I like the pattern and way they are cut. I got the E option which is 10 bullet 1.5" apart. Today I noticed they have a new website and it looks very good and easier to navigate.

    strobe light strings?

    I’m with Tom in this. I can see the blue hue around the props well though. My blue “O” mouths on my singing faces don’t look very good either but look good on the eyes. When all the paint wears off I’m gonna replace them with LEDs , maybe this summer. But will go with a dif color. The white strobes looked great on my mega tree though. Adding blue, green and red with the new CLE sale Sticks look great Bob JR

    IMO- adds to much work. That's what's great about having limited to no feeling in the hands and fingers, makes doing things like pulling zipties easier. Scissors is the answer JR

    Video Lag During Playback in Sequence Editor

    Sorry..forgot to update the thread with what appears to fix the problem. All I did was expand track 1(which has all of my channels, but I don’t use to sequence) and played the sequence. Once I do that, I can close the track and it works fine. I have no idea why this fixes the problem, but it does.

    My strands are only 50 bulbs, but because they are set to a certain length, would it even be possible to cut them apart and put a length of wire between each fire stick without injecting power? I know LOR says they have to be a specific distance from the controller and can't use the 5V extender cables they sell from the controllers connector to move them further away. So I am wondering if I could cut these into 5 10/bulb strips, would I be able to add a length of wire between them without using power injection, and if so, what would that length be limited too? And if I had to use power injection, would still need to know about what the maximum length of wire between each 10 bulb strip would be?

    It is correct that you can create a matrix any way you like and run the strings any way you want as long as you create your own sequence. The problems begin when you try and use someone elses sequence or a purchased sequence, then nothing lines up.

    I must be missing something here. Without Zig Zag in the controller, the pixel counts follow the physical strings as shown in my diagram. With Zig Zag in the controller, you could have them appear to be 1 - 32 (left to right), then 33 - 64 (left to right), then 65 - 96 (left to right), and lastly 97 - 128 (left to right). So what? It makes absolutely no difference. You can put the pixels in any order that you care to. As long as you build it in Visualizer, Pixel Editor, Sequence Editor, or S5 Preview Editor in the same way that you built the actual lights, it will work fine. Now, granted that it might take more time to set it up (only need to do once), but as long as the editor and the actual lights match, it will work fine. The drawing below is ONLY to illustrate this concept. I DO NOT recommend that you build it this way - but it absolutely would work!

    I like your idea of using them hanging rather than on the ground. Most of my yard does not have visibility down to ground level from the street.

    Pretty neat they come in black too. But what would you those for. I'm new to these RGB lights, so I'm still learning what some of these light holders are for when it comes to setting them up. Since these stake into the ground, just trying to understand how one would use these? Probably a silly question, but I'll never know the answer if I don't ask. And they have some other nice stuff on their site too, and very reasonably priced too!

    I guess I've always sequenced my matrix through PE and/or S5 using Motion Effects which doesn't require you to program each pixel like SE does. Which is why you don't need to worry about setting the zigzag on the controller settings. When you create your prop it will show up as a single line (or more if requested) for sequencing instead of each and every channel/pixel like SE does. If I remember correctly from last summer, I was able to use the Pixie on props with folds in the preview design. My understanding is a "Fold" is used when setting up the prop in the preview design. Zigzag is for setting it up on the controller itself. I'm sure there is a more scientific, long winded definition, but I haven't had the need to use zigzag, so I can't really explain a whole lot. If you get stuck setting it up let me know. I too used the HC Pixnets for my matrix, only I stacked them so each section of my matrix is made of 2 nets 63 pixels high and 15 wide, times 4-1/2 making it 8-1/2 nets wide x 2 high.

    Huge dif between a pixie and pixcon. Pixcon gives you the ability to configure the zigzag while setting it up. I will let you all figure it out. Maybe S5 will work but if SS wouldn't work I don't know why S5 would. Even if you can get the config to work how about the sequencing? If you are new and sequencing your own it will be a task in itself. If using donor sequencing there is still a bunch of work to be performed. Where as using straight lines per port and its copy paste for those using donor sequences. JR Zig zag and fold are dif but the most common and easiest way for a pixie is straight rows each per port.
