The LOR controllers included with the CCR's allow you to be very creative by combining Macros with color effects to make different combinations of colors and looks. I wrote approximately 100 cues for the CCR's that worked in conjunction with the other lighting cues for the show. This allowed me to save specific looks (macros plus color effects) in each cue and run the Cue when needed. Probably more information than you needed. Lol. Don

I don't have a home display but have helped with a Christmas display in our city park and have used the Lightorama controllers in DMX mode for other productions. I also do a singing pumpkin display for our family recreation program. Nice to meet a fellow UTE fan! Don You mean there really ARE Ute fans??? Ha ha ha. Go COUGARS! Lol!
  4. This a closer picture of the CCR's during the production. Although the white PEX tubing does diffuse the light it still allows each pixel to be seen. Attached files
  5. Testing the CCR's inside the PEX tubing. NOTE: I left a little excess 4-6 inches of plumbers tape sticking out each side of the PEX. This way I could adjust or twist the CCR to make sure it was all even and facing forward. Attached files
  6. Threading the plumbers tape with CCR's attached inside the tubing. Attached files
  7. Putting the CCR's on the Plumbers tape. I used ty-wraps every two feet and made sure they were placed over the copper junctions. When I trimmed the excess ty-wrap I would leave 1/2" to help apply pressure to the front and keep the CCR's snug inside the PEX Tubing. Attached files
  8. I mounted the CCR on plumbers tape to help me keep the CCR's from twisting and to make it easier to fish through the tubing. Plumbers tape wants to keep it's coiled shape so I would tape each end down (17') so I could mount the CCR's with ty-wraps. Attached files

  11. Jeff: I will try to get more pictures up later today. Dave: I used the white. Did not see any clear at my Home Depot store but that would be a great way to protect the CCR. Doug: Yes, this looks just like what I used except what I found was in 20' lengths so I just cut 3 1/2 ft off the end. http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-25ecodZ5yc1v/R-202033037/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=sharkbite&storeId=10051 Don
  12. Recently used CCR's as part of my lighting design for a stage production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Six CCR's outline the wings of the stage and are DMX controlled using Lightfactory and Enttec USB dongle. Everything in the video link below was done using the Macros and Effects built in the CCR controllers. I built a CCR "fixture profile" in Lightfactory to make it easier to pick colors, macros, effects and then save them into cues for the show. The auditorium holds 1,800 people with wide angles so after much searching found 20' pieces of Sharkbite 1" tubing cut to 16 1/2 feet would hold the CCR's perfectly and diffuse the light. I'll post pictures of how I did that if anyone is interested. It created almost 180 degree glow and a little bit of a neon effect. Also provided the additional benefit of protecting the CCR's from set pieces and cast members. Following is a link of a shaky video demo I put together to show some of the macros and effects: Attached files

You may want to consider a RJ45 A/B Switch. http://www.amazon.com/RJ45-AB-Way-Switch-Box/dp/B000I96BVK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1280116568&sr=8-1 You could use this between the Director (Mode 1) and the Teacher/Computer (Mode 2). Hope this helps.
  14. Thank you for your generous offer! I will keep it in mind and let you know if I decide to pursue.
