I have tried to make the most of [highlight= #ffff88]my[/highlight] channels because 32 can get used up pretty quickly. I have done that by combining some elements of some colors and placing them on the same channel. These two [highlight= #88ff88]sequences[/highlight] actually only use 29 channels: Roof/gutters: 4 Channels (1W 1B 1R 1G) Icicles: 1 Channel (1W) Tall tree: 4 Channels (1W 1B 1R 1G) Three clusters of 3 trees: 6 Channels (3W 1B 1R 1G) Line of 5 trees: 14 Channels (5W 3B 3R 3G) http://youtu.be/_5J4AFuLcUo http://youtu.be/LrRmMFVLCOU Using my channel configuration with 16 channels, you could do everything in my dispaly in white (except no icicles) - 10 channels - and one of the other colors, red, green, or blue - 6 channels. I know you already have your layout for this year, but I just wanted to show you that multi colors are possible with few channels.... you just have to get creative about how to combine elements on the same channel, and still be able to do the sequencing that you would like.... Good luck, LORi thanks LORi. This looks pretty straight forward...now doing it is a differnet story. Lol Thank yo so much!
