    spiral tree

    I put the red and blue, white and green together because using the red and blue at the same time just don't look to good. This gives you more great options IMO. Videos here https://vimeo.com/user2854453/videos

    spiral tree

    Try this one. Darrell New Forum User Members 1 25 posts Location Farifax Station, VA Report post Posted December 22, 2011 Here's my prop for a 64 channel (4 colors of 16 channels each) spiral tree. I took the 16 channel spiral tree prop from Cyberfix and converted each string from individual bulbs to a light string. That let me use the 4 colors each without posting 4 separate props on top of each other in the visualizer. On my spiral tree, I've got white and red in a superstring running clockwise and green/blue superstrings running counter clockwise. By simply assigning the channels in reverse order for the green/blue from the white/red for each string, the visualizer gives a pretty good approximation of the color strings running the opposite way during the playback. Here's the fixture layout showing the reverse channel assignment to show the white/red strings wrapped in the opposite direction of the green/blue strings. Spiral_Tree_64Channel_4Color.lpf

    Calculator: Length of Spiral Light Strings!

    Jim when I started spiral trees 8 years ago I tried, 1 turn-not good, 1 1/2 turns good, 2 turns-too much. Now with that said, it depends on the length of the light strings that you want to use on the size of the tree. Good spiral trees are dependent not only on the wrapping but also the number of strings per color and the programming that goes with it ( this I'm sure you already know). My 2-10" trees use 64 strings -16 of each color-blue & red together wrapped one way and green & white wrapped the other way, these lights are c6 50 count 17.5' long wrapped 1 1/2 turns. The 15' tree is done the same way but uses c6 70 count 24.3' long wrapped 1 1/2 turns. Hope this helps. Earle

    Light Type Where?

    HLE is a good company to deal with, at least 1/2 of my 40,000 light came from them.

    Extension cord storage ideas

    i use KITTY LITTER pales, you can stuff a lot of spt1 and lights into one and they are not as heavy and are easy to stack. I have about 50 that i use and best of all they are FREE.

    Yes, the mini director can handle more than 4 controllers, I have 21 connected to mine (336 channels) and it works great.

    False Feedback?

    A lot of people will drive by and stop, look, then leave are the ones that did not see /or ignored the tune to sign. All they see is a lot of blinking lights. We have talked about this problem before and some have said "the only way you can get them to read the sign is to hit them between the eyes with a 2 x 4 and put it in their face". I have 2 signs and still have the problem, so, as been said "blow it off" it's their loss.

    lost sequences in simple show builder

    I think I would go back and do as PhilMassey suggested and check that your files are in the right place. They MUST be in the SEQUENCE folder in the Light-O-Rama folder.

    lost sequences in simple show builder

    When it shows the red square for "FILES AVAILABLE FOR THE SHOW" along the bottom are 3 choices, did you mark for "ALL FILES"?

    Gen3 mini director uMP3g3

    This is a common problem with the mini director due to the type of SD card. It will not work with just any SD card, I use both LEXAR PLATINUN II 4gb SDHC and the KINGSTON 4GB SCHC SD cards and have had no problems. Earle P.S. a 4 GB card will hold all of my sequences about 60.
