    Windows 10 familiarization

    Got my new computer a month back and it is a awesome! I'm adding 13,000 pixels to the display this year so I needed something better than a Black Friday $150 laptop. I have been working my @$$ off getting the props ready. My computer is running with...Intel® Core i7-7700 Processor @ 3.6GHz with 32GB DDR4 (4-DIMM) 2400MHz RAM and a 1TB 7200RPM SATA3 Hard Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive with a 8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Graphics card. Can't wait to see how it all goes together and get things up and running this November!

    Independence day holiday projects

    I'm building a 32x150 180 degree mega tree. So far I've got 15 strands done. The HD Mega Tree Strip from Boscoyo is the real deal! I've got the 1000' roll. It is so worth it if you can afford it.

    building a design

    My monster singing faces are made of rope light and they too have areas that are almost a foot long or more that aren't being used for the prop. I just get black electrical tape and make a layer to black it out the light then a layer of white electrical tape to blend in with the prop. Then I hide it behind another peice of rope light within the same pattern and zip tie it off. In your case with the rebar if you go with electrical tape just leave it black. It would blend in nicely. With mine you can't even tell it's there at all... https://goo.gl/photos/n1NbSrUtm9QbSqSz9

    My P10 Panel Singing Bulbs

    I didn't make them myself. These along with MANY others are downloadable directly through xLights. Sorry, Its's a closed group at this time. There was a window of about a week for anyone to commit to the project and join. We all have been working on these for about a month now (I think). I have put in probably 50+ hours myself. This is my first time doing anything with xLights really. I'd like to think I'm a perfectionist when it comes to this stuff. Every time I review it I ALWAYS find something that I feel I can make better which is why it took me so long. So Ill be much quicker the next time.
  8. So, I'm getting into xLights for this year. I joined a group that each member is doing a Lyric Track for a song they've chosen. When all is said and done those who have contributed will have access to almost 300 completed Lyric Tracks to utilize in their display. I gotta say I'm loving xLights. The built in Papagayo is awesome. Especially with all of the characters (faces) that have been graciously submitted. This is my submission ( The audio has a weird echo to it from the screen recorder) but you'll get the idea...

    Forsale singing trees

    This will probably be the last year I'll be using my dumb node Holiday Coro faces. I'm switching over to xLights and the faces used on the P10 panels are incredible. The P10 matrix I'm building this year will take the place of the "main" singer in my group for some of the songs. So, I'll be posting my "for sale" post next year

    strobe light strings?

    I haven't received the my order yet so I emailed them if they could combine this order with the previous order to reduce the shipping...and they did

    strobe light strings?

    Got the email. Got my refund. They now have strobe strings in Red, Green and Blue. So of course I had to order those too

    Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    Is the color light board able to be connected to a laptop or only desktop computer? I have already ordered two BBB and octoscroller. But I want to run snippits of video too. The BBB and octoscroller s weren't that expensive so if I need to put them.on a shelf for a smaller project I can. I still haven't received my P10 panels yet so I'm trying to see what the BEST option is at this point before I start building. Thanks!

    Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    So is it better to get a color light board or just run the matrix with the BBB/octoscroller or Pi

    You know you're addicted when...

    When you have color night vision cameras. So when I'm not home I can watch the show to make sure everything is working like it's supposed to in glorious 4k . Black and White night vision cameras are Sooooo 1980's...

    Best method to video display

    I have a drone but I also video with my phone ( Galaxy Note 8) on a tripod. Takes great video... I would ask your neighbor if you could film from their porch.
