  1. I am trying to program my new pixel tree this year via xlights. I am not very impressed with LOR's pixel editor or Superstar. Xlights has some amazing effects and is very powerful. however, the issue i have come across is that when i export my sequence from xlights over to LOR, the fades are really choppy and look like garbage. this is because Xlights converts the fades to intensities in LOR. if i use the fade tool in LOR then the lights fade smoothly. has anyone ran into this issue? or does anyone know a better way to program pixels? thanks i'm using a Pixlite 16 MK2
  2. Thank you, that means a lot! yeah, these collages definitely take a lot of time to sequence
  3. It's a bit late but here is our show from last year. this was our 11th year. Part 1 - https://youtu.be/1nynSJyVtNc Part 2 - https://youtu.be/afoONhjIQuA
  4. Thank you! the mini trees have regular mini lights on them, White, Blue, Red.
  5. They are homemade lights. each one consists of a Red, Green, and Blue incandescent light.
  6. The heads are the Chauvet Intimidator Beam LED lights. they work real well even without fog. fog definitely helps a lot though
  7. I finally got our new show uploaded for you all. The audio has been watermarked since i had issues last year from people taking my custom audio. hope you like it! https://youtu.be/07nguS_eYFs Click Here to see all our other videos

  9. The strobes are lights that my dad put together. I can't really say anything about those except that they aren't strobes. I just programed them. the gels, heck I don't remember. we built those about 7 years ago. I think we just bought them off ebay. there isn't anything special about the gels. they came in a pack of generic yellow, red, green, blue.
  10. Alright, I was finally able to get some pictures. here it is. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1HflQAEkXN9ih_ca34nik1-97Zg&usp=sharing
  11. The one I have, mobile beat MK5, has been discontinued and revised to the new mobile beat Max which is a 1Watt system. 2x the power and it's the same price I paid for my 450. I bought mine from idjnow for $1200. If you bought the Max I don't think you would have any problems with your brick. we have some darker brick on the bottom half of our house and the 450 seems to show just fine. (note that the video doesn't show the laser that well, it's much brighter in person.) white will obviously show the best. Also, Make sure all your laser beams terminate (not into the sky) and you wont have to deal with the FAA. X-Laser provides a nice laser training video that will teach you everything you need to know to become certified.
  12. All anyone on here will tell you is "Lasers are dangerous BLAH BLAH BLAH" But I'll help you out. I have been running a high powered laser for the last 2 years and it looks awesome! Yes it's expensive but it's worth it. Things to know - Any laser machine over 5 milli watts (mw) is required to be FDA approved in the US. meaning you will have to obtain a Variance License to legally operate the thing. I bought a 450 mw RGB laser from X-Laser and it is awesome. the thing i really like about X-Laser is that all their products are FDA approved and you can get a Variance kit from them for $50! that is an awesome deal. if you buy a laser machine from china you wont be able to legally use it in a public setting and fines can be thousands of dollars so be carful. Controlling The Laser - You can control the laser with LOR using the iDMX but you will only be able to choose from the lasers internal patters. this may be fine but for me it wasn't enough (not to mention it can be more difficult to use LOR). I decided to buy a laser with an ILDA interface so I could have more control over the laser using another software called quick show. Pangolin Quick Show allows you to create your own designs and patterns and it is really powerful so check it out. In my shows I use Quick Show for the laser and LOR triggers the laser cues via a DMX signal. The setup to get it to work is kind of a mess but it works great. Here is a show I did last year that uses a lot of custom laser cues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZFUCBZi7sQ Feel free to ask me any questions you have.
  13. Yes, I took clips from songs/movies i wanted and blended them together along with adding a few movie quotes. -Update: Here is our second show I just uploaded Lindsey Stirling. Thanks!
  14. Tom, we have 4 sets of C9's in 7 different sections, Red, Green, Blue, and Orange totaling 28 channels. there are also chasing Icicles, and mini light icicles each on their own channel. We have had the spot light fixtures for quite a few years now and they have really made the show look nice.
