  1. How Long Is Your Entire Show?

    It all depends on your neighborhood and traffic concerns. If you are in an area where cars line up 2 miles down the road to see your house and block traffic, and little down time helps keep the line moving. Length of show has to be different depending on where you're located. If we didn't do that our poor neighbors would never be able to get home. lol
  2. Thanks Matt, I was just going to reply that saving the LORPixelEditorData.xml file did the trick and you confirmed it.
  3. Thanks, I wish that would helped. But it didn't. I did a search for PORpreviews.xml files and couldn't find anything. The only thing I can think of would be to manually update the preview in the other computer to match. But I'm sure there must be an easier way.
  4. I am working with two computers. I am doing my pixel editor programming on my laptop saving it to a thumb drive. While programming on my laptop I made some updates to my preview setup. When I transfer the Thumb drive to my other computer, and open it up I lose all of the updated preview information. It automatically reverts back to the previews that are already on that computer and not the one from the thumb drive(or laptop). The newly saved preview that I made on the thumb drive doesn't even come up as an option. Anyone know a fix for this? Thanks, Dennis
  5. preview file?

    I'm having the same problem. I am doing my programming on my laptop. Saving it to a thumb drive. When I transfer the Thumb drive to my other computer, and open it up I lose all of the updated preview information. It automatically reverts back to the previews that are already on that computer and not the one from the thumb drive. The newly saved preview that I made on the thumb drive doesn't even come up as an option. Anyone know a fix for this? Thanks, Dennis
  6. That was easy! Thanks Matt
  7. Hey everyone. I just created my Pixel Editor sequence and I did it on a Flash Drive. The reason for this is I programmed on a different computer than I plan to use for the actual house set up. The difficulty I'm having right now. Is when i save the sequence on a hard drive of my computer, it is not picking up any of the picture or movie effects i put in to it. The reason is it's trying to find the file in the exact same address as the flash drive. Does anyone have any guidance to offer for how I can make it all work, while not using my flash drive? Thanks, Dennis

  9. Our 2016 Display - Disney Wishes Theme

    We've been asked how we made the fireworks. I added a couple pictures during the day while we were setting up. For the big fireworks on the roof, we used 2x4's for the framing. Frame work sits on the roof. It was not nailed down. We didn't want a leaky roof haha. Then fenced in a square where we zip tied the pvc conduit firework arms in place. the fence worked well because it gave us something to connect to that would still allow the wind to blow through. We also put a halogen light in the middle to give the firework explosion effect. For the Up fireworks by beside and behind the castle. We used Pixel tape strips / ribbons depending on what you call them. The strips are 16 feet long. We then zip tied them to rigid steel conduit. Two conduit sections for each one. 10ft each section for a total of 20 feet. With the remaining 4 feet that didn't have the lights, we had room to screw them into our wooden base to help them in place. We originally tried this with PVC conduit, but quickly determined that it was too flimsy so have to upgrade to steel.
  10. Here is a link to our display for 2016. Located in Lake View, NY Hope everyone likes it! Dennis
  11. I just upgraded the firmware to the latest. It was v1.06, upgraded to v1.08 and that did the trick! Thanks!
  12. Hello, i just made my sequences this year through the Pixel Editor. Unlike my previous way using the sequence editor. My problem now is getting them to work. I saved the intensity data into the sequence editor file. The pixels are working and are being control through this, but I can't get my CTB16PCg3 controllers to control. I have set up the in it ID's and channels in the prop correctly, and they do show up in the sequence editor when opening up the intensity file. I changed it to enhanced mode in the network preferences as well. But they don't work. Does anyone have any ideas to help? thank you!
  13. I'm just getting started with a big pixel project this year. Last year I only did 1 grid using pixel editor, which was pretty easy. This year, I am adding 5000 pixels. My challenge is inserting multiple props (a few grids, mega tree, roof line, smaller trees in yard) and finding the easiest way to sequence them all. I think Superstar may be the right place for this. I'm guessing I could insert each prop individually in pixel editor, but then trying to program them all separately will be tough. I've seen videos where pixels throughout the entire yard and house almost seem to be one big video. I am new to this whole pixel universe. Any advice or links to save me some time and effort would be much appreciated. I have the latest software for both pixel editor and superstar. I just don't know the best way to put it all together. Thanks, Dennis
