(Some of) My 2015 Christmas Display Videos

Recommended Posts

I so far have only put online 7 of our 22 songs from this years show. I have recorded a few more, but have not gotten around to touching them up for 'publication. That, and some songs are just not good candidates for putting online (some of the slower, more Spiritual songs where the detail is in the song, not the lights).

 

By the way, Vimeo is now analyzing posted video's for copyrighted content (as has been discussed here previously). One way to get around that is to either crop out a small portion of the audio (you can hear that in the "Amazing Grace" video) and/or slow the clip down where it really is not even noticeable (at least to my ear).

Just kidding.

Great job by the way. A crisp setup there.


He's getting a jump on all of us.

 

I know. I almost felt like I was behind already. LOL

I find it kind of refreshing to think I'm already locked into next years show, and don't have to change anything.

True, just refresh this thread in about October and get everyone in a panic. LOL :)

Wow! Nice job. Really crisp programming. What program do you use to do the pixel sequencing?

Most of the pixel sequencing is done in SuperStar Sequencer, although some of the effects are done in Xlights/Nutcracker.

Nice job and I agree it is very crisp.  What are your nine trees made of?

Those minitrees are made of coroplast. I got them from Holidaycoro.com.

I used "Pixabulbs" from DIYLedExpress (WS2811 IC - Dual 5050 RGB LEDs - 12v).

For your mega tree how long are you r strands. How tall is ur tree and what spacing did you use. That looks awesone

I love the "Lights of Christmas", especially your pixel tree. Would you share the sequence if I said please? lol

I agree...pixel tree sequences from HolidaySequences.com is outstanding! What are using for your arches?

I see you mentioned holidaycoro.

 

I was considering their 16-strip "ccr" tree. This looks like bulbs?

 

Is the programming the same for the bulbs vs strips?

The arches are CCR's attached to PVC. The megatree has CCP's attached to Pixel Mega Tree Strips through a group buy on Doityourselfchristmas.com.

 

The programming will be the same for strips and bulbs.

 

And the Megatree sequences I bought from holidaysequences can be amazing.

The strings on the tree are attached to 'mega tree pixel mounting stips' (available as group buy through doityourselfchristsmas.com). The pixel mounting holes on those strips are spaced 1" apart, and I used 4" spacing on those strips. 50 pixels on the CCP x 4" spacing = ~16.5' string.

The frame is ~17.5' high at where the pixels attach. I got the 'head', the base, etc from christmaslightshow.com.

There basically is no spacing at the top of the tree where the pixels attach, and at the very bottom I have them spaced 10", but that is 15" - 18" below the last pixel. This year, I did not use a 180 degree tree. I actually moved the ring in a bit, tightened its radius, and used something like 160 degrees. It just made sense to do that, since the tree was not going to actually be viewed from either side, and this way i could get some more 'resolution' out of the pixels.

I haven't looked at holidaycoro.com for a while, I guess they've really increased their sequence selections lol

None of the sequences are from holidaycoro.com. The Minitrees and some of the other hardware are, though.

 

I'm not sure where I got the strobes from, as those were purchased 4 or 5 years ago. But I have a strong suspicion they are from 3glightingcreations.com.

Sorry I meant to say holidaysequences.com. Either way they're very cool.
