RGB Flood Sequences

Recommended Posts

Looking for a little help on some sequences with RGB floods (I searched forums and everything that came up was closed topics).  This is my first year with RGB floods, well RGB in general, and not really sure how to incorporate them with my show yet.  Any ideas / sequences would be fantastic!

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Most do some form of wall washing

Oops, sorry. 8 floods @ 10W from LOR.

 

House is a tan stucco, so I'm more curious how well it's going to work on it

Well, I use (3) 50-watt floods to wash the background. Combination stone and red brick. Work great.

I have seen many homes using the 8-pack 10-watts like you have and they look great as well.

Here's one of mine from a few years ago to give you some ideas.

might not be exactly what you are looking for - but I sent you a few sequences anyway.

Good luck.

Here is how mine look as a wash on beige brick.

Alright this gives me a much better idea, thanks! Can't seem to upload a picture via my phone due to size of it

Yeah. Have to use a third party posting site. Photobucket was great - until they got gready. That’s why I posted a YouTube video.

Nice and clean. Agree with Tom - using floods would be a great addition to your already well done display.

Thanks for the feedback. Look forward to messing around with the floods

On the sequences I sent, if you’re going to wash your background all 8 the same color, you could copy my RGB flood channels and paste into all 8 of yours. Just ignore channels 4&5 as they have to do with strobing the 50-watt floods.

Will do. Can I create a strobe like effect with the 10W floods I bought? I'd imagine Shimmer or quick on and off to create the same effect, no?

Yes. & I did some of that in my programming too. It’s just with the 50-watts, you have options of both ways. Example. Sometimes I’ve already added the floods as my color wash - matching my front bush light strands. Then for extra dramatics, I can copy my c-9 strobe channel and paste into the flood channel 5. Now I’m easily strobing the floods without changing my color scheme.

My flood lights are set up as a wall wash, but the choreography can make them in to a very dynamic and dimensional effect even when installed in a seemingly basic application. Here is a video of my favorite song in my display which utilizes the floods. Note that I don't have them constantly on - there are periods with no floods - I just used them in areas where I want to create a little visual impact. One technique I use when lighting up the entire house is to have each flood a slightly different shade of the same color (for example one would be a light blue color and another would be more turquoise) so that way there's a little variation in the wall wash and it doesn't look as "flat." Gradients of color add a lot of depth and visual interest.

Do you use 'Barn Doors' on you flood in those narrow spaces?

I don't have floods, but I like your idea on slight color variations.

Without much of a beat, that song was likely hard to sequence, and you did a really nice job with it.  You did a great job with the floods - so often they are glaring and kind of wash out the rest of the display.  Your subtle job was nice.  One of my favorites is an all instrumental version of "Hark! The Herald Angles Sing" that was done by my church orchestra and 7,100 pipe pipe organ.  It also has no strong beat and was a bitch to sequence (and I was new when I did it, to make it worse).

I actually don't. With enough experimentation I was able to mount them without any light bleed on unwanted areas.

Thanks Jim. That video was from my first year programming lights, so I definitely had my reservations about choosing a song that slow. This year I am sequencing an entire show of Opera and orchestral pieces with slow and variable tempos. It is definitely going to be a challenge. "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" is a song that slipped by my radar. I am definitely going to consider it for this year now. Thanks for the idea ;)

Hey guys, I'm late to the party. Missed out last year on some sequences. Seemed like everyone was busy. I finally got some time and was wondering if I could get some pre-help with the same set up. I have the 8-pack 10-watt RGB lights. Just want to set them up as a wall wash for now. Then once I can figure out how they work I can spice them up during different holidays. Was hoping someone could send a sequence or some tips as to how to set it up. I also bought two 16x25 pixel trees. I'll have to do some research but I haven't been able to figure those out either. I'll jump around to the other forums for help. Thanks in advance.
