    Go-to for cheap/quality lights?

    I have nearly all my lights from walmart, no issues... but i don't live in a cold or snow area. I am in year 5 with the lights and have not had to replace any strings yet....

    When Do You Start Decorating?

    start mid september, first I start pulling out all the extension cords and untangle and repair if needed. Also do all my testing of lights and props. After, I start putting up. takes me 6 weeks to put it all up and give me about 10 days to test and check sequencing and finish the last bit of any new songs. This year I have added a lot of props so I think I will take a bit longer for setup but I'm always done by thanksgiving. Lights on, on black friday!

  9. I zip tie my bundles together by prop or area of the yard, I have 42 controllers and they are all in the garage and it makes it easy to put them out and run them to the place they need to be. I label each of the wire.

  11. I just downloaded S5 with all AC lights......and trying it out. one issue I have so far is when I chase across any of my stuff(pressing H shortcut) it leaves the line I made and also the spots that chase. before in s4 i would fix this my changing the paste background or foreground(can't remember which) but how do i fix this in s5 because I don't want all the props to come one and then chase just want to chase. also when I copy or paste something there is a 2-3 "Pasting" or "Copying" window that pops up even when I tried to copy 1 grid, is this normal?

    Looking to buy new lights

    Almost all my 80,000 lights are Walmart lights, I got day after Christmas on clearance and clean them out. No issues with dimming. The only issue I have with Walmart lights is there is no consistency in the warm whites. All real closer but box to box is just a bit off.

    No motivation yet - help!

    hot chocolate singing faces

    hey got your email, I appreciate it, but at the 1:38 mark it seems to to stop the singing trees and when it does the mouth movements are way off. I used your audio file and just assigned the trees to my channels before copying to my sequence.
