    Video Software Do You Use?

    Speedster, my apologies. I didn't see this response come in. I purchased the Ultra version for $69.99. Working with it now so I'm still learning what it can do. Seems pretty straight forward based on the limited time I have been able to spend with it.

    Video Software Do You Use?

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I decided on CyberLink Director and just purchased it. Going to download now and do some editing this evening. I let you all know how it went and hopefully post some videos. Thank you all again and have a Happy New Year. John

    Video Software Do You Use?

    I wasn't thinking. That is an important piece of information to leave out. I am a PC person but I do have a new ipad pro with 256GB memory so an ipad app would also work. I have tried iMovie but it seems pretty limited. Maybe I just need to get more familiar with it.
  4. Merry Christmas all. I hope everyone had a successful lighting season. I live on a corner and decorate around three sides of the house and have never been able to get a good video from the ground. This year, a coworker of mine loaned me his drone and I was finally able to get some great video of my Christmas lights. Now all I need to do is edit it and overlay the music on it. What software do people use? I tried searching on these boards but I am probably using the wrong search parameters because I get everything but what I am looking for. Looking for some suggestions please. Thank You John

    Voiceover Scripts

    Orville, your information combined with Jim’s is a huge help. I now have a good basis to start writing my scripts. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply and providing that information. Merry Christmas John

    Voiceover Scripts

    Good morning Christmas lighters, hope all is going well with your displays. I finally have mine up and running and have decided to add some voice with greetings, announcing songs, and do’s and don’ts. I am lucky enough to have a friend with the perfect radio voice and is no stranger to performing willing to provide his voice and talent however every time I sit down to type up a script, my brain goes blank. Are there any generic or custom scripts out there I can use as a starting point? I’m not looking to copy anyone’s work, I just need some ideas. It kills me that I can sequence a song but draw a blank when it comes to what to say in the announcements. Any help however big or small would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and Merry Christmas to you all. John
  8. Griswold Style and Jim, Thank you for the quick response. It looks like you both had the same idea and Jim, your drawing is spot on. I am also getting myself familiar with Visualizer so I didn’t know it worked that way. I am going to try and figure that end out and I should be able to because now I have a direction to go in. Thank you for you help and guidance. John
  9. Good morning, I posted this question about a year ago and received no replies so I never figured out how to do it and wound up mot using my CCB's last year. I want to ask the same question but with a little different specifications. Hopefully this will make sense. I have searched the forums and watched the tutorial videos but have not had any luck trying to find how to do what I want to do. I apologize in advance if it is somewhere on these forums or in a video somewhere and I didn't find it. Here is what I am trying to do. I have 8 sets of Cosmic Color Bulbs and I have 4 six foot tall tree frames. I want to us two sets of CCB's on each six-foot tree frame. Each CCB has two strands of 50 bulbs 24' in length. I want to use each strand to create four columns approximately 6' in length. This will allow me to have a total of 16 columns of lights on each tree. My question is, how do I set that up in Superstar Sequencer to show a single strand of 50 bulbs making 4 columns? I can only find how to create a tall tree utilizing all 50 bulbs in a single column. Can this be done in Superstar? Hopefully this makes sense. Thank you. John
  10. I use the Rubber Mastic Electrical Tape from Home Depot. https://www.homedepot.com/s/elecrical%20tape%20waterproof?NCNI-5 I just cut it into short pieces approximately 0.5 inches long and seal it over the exposed female ends. I can usually seal about 240 plugs per roll. I started with the ones that are close to the ground and over the last couple of years I have been adding it all over. I usually go through about a roll a season. If you press it on, it really seals well. I have noticed the number of GFCI trips has reduced year over year since I started doing this. Good Luck John

    Stand for LOR RGB50 Flood Lights

    ChasinRudolf, I'm glad this solution worked out for you. It was simple and I love the way they stack for storage. I did the same thing and purchased two extra ones to protect the top spot light during storage. I agree, these lights are beasts, I now have eight of them and they wash my two story house perfectly. Thanks for the shout out in your blog whcih by the way I really like. I will be bookmarking it so I can go back and watch the progress. HAppy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas. John
  12. Brandon, Awesome show and sequencing. I have to ask, how do I find rotation spot lights like that. I've been searching for a while and can't seem to locate good outdoor powerful rotating spot lights. I'd love some information if you wouldn't mind sharing. Thank you John

    Hallelujah(Pentatonix)

    Papa6058, any chance you can email me that sequence as well. Just started to work on one for it and it would be a great help. My email is johnmitchard@gmail.com Thank you very much. John
  14. Brian, Thank you so much for the help. I can't wait to give it a try when I get home. I will be sure to ask if I come up with any other questions. John
  15. Brian, Thank you for those instructions. I was actually looking for how to set it up the mini trees in Superstar so I can sequence it. The above will not go to waste. Looking at those instructions, I know for sure I would have asked how to set it up in visualizer after I got it set up in Superstar so thank you, you saved me the time of asking that question. Do you know how to configure it in Superstar? John
