RGB Flood Lights

Recommended Posts

Oh my, that's an awfully large price tag (needing more than one for that 4 story building) and not knowing if that is even enough or will work for that large of display.

At 100cm in length that is equal to about 40". I'm guessing quite a few of those will be needed. Again, just guessing...

But maybe you have a nice budget to work with too. And maybe it's worth trying if you do have the budget.

That is an impressive wall washer though.

It's a big chunk of change for sure. I've ordered a few things to test out first. I've ordered 8 of the lor floods, a couple of 50w floods, and some led strips. Maybe i can find something in there that will do the job. If all else fails, I'll have to break out the $$$ for as many as 8 of those floods from ray. It's the $500+ shipping that kills me.

Shipping will be less than 100 bucks if you buy in bulk.  I bought my 6 spots for just under $700 last year (with shipping).  The breakdown was about $110.  Considering similar lights from Elation cost $400 a pop, its an absolute steal.  3 CCRs would cost you more.

Ah I added 8 to the cart and shipping was over 500. I've never bought from him before. Do I contact him for the bulk rate?

Yes that is what I've heard you're supposed to do.

Go to Ray's website and email him for an estimate on shipping.  It will be much more reasonable than what's  posted on the website.  Also, by dealing directly with Ray, you can pay with paypal.  Finally, just because Ray doesn't have something in his store doesn't mean he can't get it.  Ray is just a distributor of LED lighting products from a bunch of different small companies.  If you wanted a bigger light, or something custom, he can do it for you.

Thanks again. I've emailed him. I'll let you know how it all turns out.

I would recommend wall-washers. I have 36W wall-washers that we use for our buildings.

 

You can see them at http://lightsmusicmagic.com/new.html

 

Scroll down below RGB Strings to see the Floods. The sample video uses 8-12 floods depending on the sequence.

JHolmes, you're video of the white house using those 36 watt wash lights is what inspired me to do my light show in the first place.  Awesome job.

Do you sell the wall washers? They look great.

If you want to chase the floods, which is what I do in my show, I'd use the 36 watt RGB floods Ray Wu sells.  They're super powerful and you can put multiple floods right next to each other.  My show this year uses six of these bad boys.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_bdNDqPfhA

Dam! that's cool! 

 

But, I still don't think the 36w ones will be bright enough for the size building that the OP has.  I don't think the DMX controllers will handle anything bigger because of the current and voltages used.  Only the LOR 24channel DC controller would work.  The 200w fixture I posted earlier I have my doubts about its heat dissipation especially if a lot of white is used.  Also the 200w fixture needs to be modified to work with DC control.

You can also buy 72 watt rgb floods that are identical in size to the 36 watt lights. They just use 2 watt LEDs instead of the 1 watt LEDs on the 36 watt ones

I'm having problems in the sequence editor setting my RGB floods to white/twinkle. When I set the color choice to white and then select twinkle the visualizer sows the floods in color no in white. If I unselect twinkle from the floods it will correctly show the floods in white as I want. This only seems to be an issue for twinkle as I can get it to shimmer just fine. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

You can't do twinkle and shimmer with RGB floods because your mixing three colors to get the color you want.  LOR's Twinkle and Shimmer macros only work with regular, single colored lights.  However, to get something similar to twinkle and shimmer, just set your RGB to different intensities.  It will look the same

Thank you! But you didn't call me to buy the wall-washers :(. So sad!!! ;)

Our stocks are low on this product but depending on your setup timetable I might be able to get more to you.

Actually, you can shimmer RGB floods when you shimmer one color at a time. But your right on the twinkle part if trying to get white out of RGB.
