  1. I do think that the balloon has worker great. It looks like a Christmas ornament the way I do it. I purchased the 10 foot version for around $340.00 and picked it up. I poked a hole in it when it was new and it repaired very easy. Let me describe the projection system if I may. The computer I use to drive LOR has a duel video card, on one monitor is the control and the other video output is full screen video. This is not required but makes life easy especially if you need to control something during the show run. The control monitor is in the house with the computer and radio transmitter. The video card output with the video image flow is (1) VGA cable (2) VGA to cat 5 converter (3) 250 feet of cat 5 (4) cat 5 to VGA converter (5) VGA cable (6) projector. Long VGA cables are a problem avoid them. The projector is a 3500 lumen standard resolution 4:3 ratio. I have built an enclosure that I place 15 feet approx. in front of the balloon, it is water tight but air circulates to allow cooling from the outside. I let it run in the rain with no trouble. A warning; I can’t use power from the same sub panel for the projector and LOR. With large and sudden light changes LOR drags the 60 cycles down and causes the projector sync pulse to degrade. I plug it in some ware else and next year I am adding an isolation transformer right out by the projector. I will attach picture if I can find some. Thanks Brad
  2. Very nice! I like the music, it's good for squencing.
  3. It took a long time but here is my 2011 display. This is the video portion.
  4. I like the Video switcher. That is a good solution.
  5. I'v done this before Attached files
  6. In theatrical lighting there is an item called a projector dowser. You can get 2 and in S2 (or S3) program each one open when you want it. They are DMX and you will need that LOR hardware as well. Here is a web site that shows the common units used in theater . http://citytheatrical.com/la-dmxIris.htm Looks pretty pricy, I don’t remember paying that much.
  7. Don't wait till it's to late. I started choosing music this last weekend and will be editing video until August and then start sequencing.
  8. I started in 2009 with LOR and Video.
  9. Fantastic! I really enjoyed watching.

  12. Some is all original but most is using Digital Juice Editors Toolkit 9 – Christmas. With ET you have video elements that you plug into your editor and manipulate. For sophisticated edits I will use After Effects then into the editor.
  13. Someone asked to see the video only so here it is. http://www.vimeo.com/21353334

  19. We moved this year to the family farm. As we had a new audience and very little time, we used songs from previous years. We added a 30’ mega tree and a Bethlehem star (Holdman). We also changed the video projection from a video wreath to a 300% larger “barrage balloon” as my driveway is 350 feet long. Brad http://www.vimeo.com/20287610
