  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. CCB Configuration in Superstar

    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
  4. CCB Configuration in Superstar

    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
  5. I originally placed this question in the Cosmic Color Device Forum and I think it really should have been in this one. 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 6 sets of Cosmic Color Bulbs and I want to make mini trees out of them. Since its a mini tree, I want each column in the tree to have only have 10 bulbs in it so each strand of 50 bulbs will give me to 5 columns of 10 bulbs. How do I set that up in Superstar Sequencer to show a single strand of 50 bulbs making 5 columns of 10 bulbs in each tree? 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

  7. CCB Matrix

    Mr. P, You are correct, that is how I add things at 3:22am. Usually they are not correct. Thanks for catching that. Maybe I need a couple more CCB's or try 3 inch spacing. Decisions decisions...... John
  8. CCB Matrix

    Jim, Mr. P and BobO, Thank you for the responses. As it turns out, I typed my question in quickly before I left work and mistakenly put four CCB's instead of six. I forgot about the two just recently delivered by LOR. With six sets of CCB's, I can create a 24x50 matrix. Using a 2" spacing, that should give me a matrix approximately 4' x 8'. It sounds like that should be a good stepping off point. Now all I need to do is to figure out how to program it. Thank you all for your responses, it was greatly appreciated. And BobO......love the videos. Very entertaining. John
  9. CCB Matrix

    Good afternoon all, I have four sets of LOR Cosmic Color Bulbs and want to build a matrix. My questions are as follows: 1. Has anybody created a matrix with CCB's? (If, do you have a link to a video?) 2. How does it look considering the bulbs are big? 3. What spacing is advised for bulbs that size? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you John
  10. CCB Mounting Strips

    Perfect. Exactly what I was looking for and that only took 6 minutes. Every now and then, simple items elude me when doing searches. Don't know why that was so tough to locate on my own. Thank you Mr. P. John
  11. Happy New Year all. I have a quick question. I know I have seen it before and even talked about on this forum but for the life of me, I can't seem to locate the discussion thread or the vendor that sells it. I am looking for the plastic strips with the holes in it that I can use to evenly space the bulbs on my CCB strips. The ones I find only seem to be able to handle pixels, not bulb size. Anybody know where I can find these? Thank you John
  12. Question on 50W Floods

    Gmac Here is the thread Mr. P was referring to. I posted it in December and the beauty of this set up was that you DIDN'T need to take it apart at the end of the season, I just stacked them on top of each other with the light still mounted on the milk crate. It offers great protection for the lights. http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/39306-stand-for-lor-rgb50-flood-lights/#comment-360558 These are awesom floods. I just bought two more to bring my total to eight. Perfectly even coverage to the roof on a two story house. Hope this helps. John
  13. Mounting floodlights

    I should have read the thread more thoroughly, it appears Mr. P already posted the link to my previous thread. Oh, I second his suggestion.
  14. Mounting floodlights

    Grill happy, I just saw your post and wanted to,share a post I submitted in December if you are looking for a different idea. http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/39306-stand-for-lor-rgb50-flood-lights/#comment-360558 These are awesome flood lights. I recently bight two more to bring my total to eight. Perfectly even coverage by to the roof of a two story house. Hope this helps as well. John
  15. Roknjohn I have six trees on my property that range from 22’ to 26’ in height that I hang lights on every year. When I started doing this, those trees were all about 10’ shorter and were much easier to light. I always insist that the lights must go all the way to the top so I needed to come up with an inexpensive method because the wife hasn’t authorized the expenditure for a man lift yet. I solved the problem with a MrLongArm pole and the green plastic hook head from my old 11’ red Christmas light hanger pole that everyone seems to use. MrLongArm is an 8’ long pole that will extend to 24’. I purchased it at Home Depot for about $40 and considering the length, it is fairly light weight. I unscrewed the green plastic hook head off my old Christmas light hanger pole and screwed it onto the MrLongArm pole (perfect fit). I later bent an old coat hanger and taped it to the end of the green hook head extending the hook thus giving me better light holding capability when you are balancing them at 24’. I’ve included a picture to show you what I mean. It takes a little getting used to maneuvering a 24’ pole with lights hanging from it but it works and is a lot cheaper than renting a lift. Hopefully what I said above makes sense. Good Luck John
