OK, saw this done ,saw it in person. This display had c9s on the edge of the shingles, and ONE set of icicle lights hooked under the gutter. What you see that looks like more than one set of icicles is the reflection off the siding. Also it looks more pronounced the farther away you get.

Try this animation sequence. It's pretty simple really. step back when using the animation window. This is not an up close effect. This is the best I've seen to match.

With the help here, I managed to replicate the effect, but I need to wait and see what it looks like in real life.

Does anyone have some more LOR sequencing examples of this effect they wouldn't mind sharing?

Here is the show I saw in person ,with the "roof bounce". Watch Amazing Grace for it. They also have a mega tree built with sleeves (I think) , VERY cool. Enjoy. www.kevinkolak.com

Cool, I didn't know he had a website. I discovered him last year accidentally while driving from my veterinarian in Loysville, over to Newport to visit my ex step-dad before I went back home to Gettysburg. I didn't stay long because I didn't want to pull into his yard and there wasn't enough room that I felt comfortable with on the shoulder. Growing up in Perry County, I know how they drive up there, lol. They don't stop after they clip you. The driver's ed teach said stopping was optional.

I did the bounce my second year (2010) purely by accident. I used C9 and had a string of red, a string of white, and a string of green.

My first year (2009) getting all three color strands across my roof took a million clips and was incredibly time consuming as I had to run all three colors at once. Taking them down was like an avalanche... once the weight built up... off they came. Lost a lot of bulbs, but oh well.

In 2010 I decided to experiment with different clips. So one color was mounted a few inches above roof line with some clips I found at Lowes (haven't seen those kind of clips since - they were sort of "L" shaped with the foot of the "L" sliding under shingles clipping on gutter) The second color I ran with regular clips right at roof line. The third color I hung off the roof line color using zip ties.

The bounce effect was an unexpected kinda cool factor. I don't thang them that way anymore, but still cool.
