  1. Getting started with RGB

    If you are uncertain about all of the rgb stuff If I were you I would purchase a pixie4 and get a string of 2811 pixels and play around with it. Purchase a power supply that matches the voltage of the pixels (12v or 5v). The pixels you referenced were ip66 rated. I would use only pixels that are ip68 rated. They are waterproof and will stand up to snow and rain. As explained above read and read more. Watch all of the videos you can. 2 years ago I switched completely over to rgb. I no longer have any traditional lights. I watched and read all that I could. After I ordered what I needed I hooked it all up and it all worked with no problems. To me it was not hard switching over to rgb but I literally spent around 3 months researching rgb and taking in as much as I could. Whatever you decide good luck. Ask questions and read the forums.
  2. Holiday Coro Singing Christmas trees

    That's one thing I have not done yet. Singing faces. I think next year that maybe my new project since I only plan on adding a few things next year. It should be fun.
  3. Matrix sequences for sale?

    He will be matching some of the tree sequences with matrix sequences but probably not all of them. It takes them quite some time to program the matrix sequences. As time goes on I believe we will see more and more matrix sequences matching the trees.
  4. Animations

    Just do a google search. I usually search something like "santa dancing gif" in google images. You will have a bunch show up. You can find a lot this way.
  5. Need help with RBG floods

    Yep and it looks great
  6. Need help with RBG floods

    I had not thought about using my floods to face the audience until now. Thanks
  7. You would be better off to build the 24x50 size. You cannot scale it down to make it work correctly in Superstar. I have a 24x50 and it looks great especially with the sequences that Chris makes from holiday sequences.
  8. CAT5 cable runs

    Thanks for all of the ideas. I am thinking about possibly using paracord from the house to the tree and attaching the cat5 cable to it. Thanks again
  9. CAT5 cable runs

    Hello everyone. I have a portion of my yard that I would like to place a few props in and my tune to sign. In order to get to this part of my yard I will need to contend with my driveway. It's possible I could run the cat5 cable from the top corner of my house over to a tree that sits in this area. I will need to run an extension cord to this area also. If I decide to run the cables on the ground and the driveway what are my options as far as wrapping them in something so they do not get torn up from vehicles driving over the cables? How do most of you contend with this? Or is it just best to run the cables from the house to the tree? Thanks in advance. Eric
  10. 4.3.22 has all the new SuperStar features!

    Cool. Thanks Brian
  11. trying to figure it out

    Keep in mind high resolution videos and or pictures will not look very good on a standard matrix. I have used some cartoons on my matrix such as frosty and the Grinch. They turned out well so did let it go.

  13. Smart RGB -- Advice Needed

    I am a huge fan of the falcon controllers. I have 5 of them with 4 expansion boards. Super easy to set up and run. I do not own any lor pixel controllers but I can imagine they are as great as the rest of their hardware. Falcon has great support and so does lor. I really don't think you can go wrong with either. I only hear of good about the sandevices too. I have had no issues with holiday coro but several have. Good luck with whoever you go with!
  14. Audio interference

    No cables are hooked up. Running it straight thru the laptops internal speakers
  15. Audio interference

    I will try that. Thanks.
