    Pixel Tree or CCR Tree

    For those with pixel trees, are images still suitable on them? I plan to use some of my CCR16 sequences on the pixel tree in 2018.

    Pixel Tree or CCR Tree

    If this is any help, I have had a 16 CCR tree the past 2 seasons and am going to move to a pixel tree next year and re-purpose my CCR's. I built the frame using aluminum tubing that is outlined pretty well in an older thread in this forum, but it has become too bulky and heavy to handle. It isn't that I don't like the CCR tree, but I am ready for a new look, and my yard isn't large enough to accommodate 2 large trees. As others have said, CCR shows animation very well and is naturally pretty tall, but I am looking forward to a pixel tree.
  3. I emailed LOR earlier this year and asked if they would have pre-assembled Pixie4/8 packages and they hinted they would be available this coming year, but who knows if that will be a reality.

    Sequencing roof

    You would probably be a lot happier sequencing your roofline with PE (or whatever the replacement in S5 is).
  5. Thank you so much for the clear, detailed explanation! I really appreciate you taking the time with the the image annotations. A picture is worth 1000 words! Thanks again!
  6. Wow, I guess I am completely confused then. I just assumed I would have to have a pixel for every "LED" in order for the sequence to look like it does. Is this not the case?
  7. Is it possible to convert a sequence designed for a 16 CCR tree into something that can be used on a 16 strip pixel tree that doesn't have 150 pixels per strip? I really wanted to see if there were any LOR features to accomplish this before taking the manual approach. Thanks!

    Testing CCR's

    Not sure if this is the preferred way, but I hook them to the controller, and hold down the little white button inside the controller and plug in the controller while holding down the button. As long as you keep it held down, the lights will go through their RGB cycle. This is the easiest way I know of without having to hook the controller up to the computer.
  9. Thanks for the responses. I don't personally think I need to go 50 feet, but it is nice to know it is an option. For my particular need, I am wanting to do the eve lines of my entire roof with CCB's, and with this knowledge, the pixie16 could sit in the middle of my roof and extend out to every light string. As k6ccc said, the cable runs may be a little excessive, but it is pretty clean from a controller perspective. dibblejr, please check back in after the holidays and let me know how it went. Thanks!

  11. I saw in the store that it says: "If you have the newest Pixie Controllers (which have dip switches on them) you can add up to 50 feet of extensions." I just want to make sure I am understanding correctly because I always read that anything beyond 10 feet from the controller starts to cause issues. Has anyone actually tested this distance? Here I thought I would have to buy a bunch of pixie 4's and 8's for what I want to do next year. This would be a game changer for me
