Welcome to the madness.

 

A time saver tip for you ... see this thread. It talks about the Visualizer and Sequence Editor, and keeping the two in sync.

Welcome to your new addict.......I mean, hobby. 

 

Just some friendly advice, "Get Going, Soon!!!!"

 

This time of year, a lot of us are busy with our own displays. I start my main set-up in a little over 2 weeks with one of my pixel trees going up next weekend. I will be acquiring a singing pumpkin this weekend, so that will need to be set-up and tested, quickly too.

 

You have time to get a small show going for Christmas, but not a lot of it (time). If you can't fill up 48 channels, remember, your viewers won't know that, only you. 

 

Good luck, and happy lighting.

Ron

The big one to stay away from is the Martha Stewart lights - they tend to catch fire when dimmed.

Yeah, the home accent lights work okay, but if you get rain fairly often I would suggest using something like "no-lox" on them to prevent corrosion on the bulbs.  You may also need a "snubber" on some to make them work properly.

got a question though about singing faces. I see on hiloday coro they sell the set of four singing trees, and the sequence. it uses 32 channels. if I was to get them, what would I do with their sequence, is there a way to merge it into another sequence?

Here's how I do it, I open both sequences and add 32 channel to the sequence I want to add the faces to, and them copy the faces to the other sequence, its pretty simple.

Just make sure the song and sequence time from holiday Coro matches the song and sequence time I have correct?
