    You can fade with mains voltage lights. Power pack will probably not be dimmable

    Where to buy your lights-displays?

    Dmoore any chance of shipping outside the US?

    If you have electronics skills you can remove the multifunction controller. That still doesn't remove the transformer however which will be fried if you try and dim that.

    Yes. It is very tricky to find lights that work. Lights from big box stores over here get fried the moment you hook them up to the controller. A tried and tested company is http://festive-lights.com but you will pay a premium for their lights. I said it on another thread yesterday if I was starting over I would go straight to low voltage RGB lights which are much more reasonably priced.

    You have pointed to lights that run on 110v the voltage system here in Europe is 240v. Those lights will not work over here. Here in Europe it is very hard to find lights that work with LOR controllers. Most lights will have multifunction controllers and transformers. These will not dim although you can do on/off (many also feature a delay when turned in so they cannot be synchronised). You will find lights that work but at a high price. Unfortunately that's the way things are...

    As far as I'm aware Radiant Holidays is the former WLC Ventures.
  15. You can load a video into the sequence the same way you load an audio file. Many people take the audio file from the video while sequencing and when they finish they load the video file. The video then pops up onscreen while the sequence is playing. You then plug your computer into the screen you wish to output to and it will play. Most people who have video in their shows have the external screen act as a second screen so they can still access their show computer while the video is playing.
