  3. Today I had lunch at a Chinese place a brought home a fortune cookie for later. A couple hours later while taking a break from working on my pixel tree, I ate that fortune cookie. The enclosed fortune seemed very appropriate. It read: YOUR FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT

  4. It occurred to me that I should share this here. Everything is light O Rama. The pumpkin Arch, the floodlights, and both animatronic puppets. All runs from a mini MP3 director. this is a parody some friends and I did of a song from Frozen. Rewritten for Halloween. One of several songs we do for the folks waiting in line. Love is a Rotting Corpse

  5. It's that time of the year again for my annual give back to the community with my personally mixed 2020 Griswold Dub Mix. As always, I custom mixed this which falls under fair use. I created the sequence. It is NOT to be shared outside of my posts or sold. Just because I shared it with you does not mean you can profit from it. Respect those who share their work. If not then all shares will be stopped. Any selling and that will be the end of the mixes. My display includes 5 ac controllers and rgb pixels, floods, and dumb rgb elements... ranging from 5 arch channels, 5 chan

  7. A few years ago Doug “Wire Frame Delights” made me a 6’ singing bulb. I never got around to using it and converting my show to RGB so about a month ago a member stopped by my house to see my setup and get tips. I gave him that to get him started perhaps with singing faces but if not it is still a nice prop to light. My friend Orville helped me out a bunch and never asked for a dime even though he was going through tough times due to the hurricanes. Always much appreciative for all of the help and all of the friends I have made along the way. JR

  8. Here is another video from our Christmas show this year. The initial mouth sequence was supplied by BobO (Thank You!) and I modified it/added to it to meet the effects I was going for. I received a lot of positive feedback from people about the song selection, and the 2020 closure at the end. Hope you enjoy! Videos for all my post-Christmas light show can be found via the links in my signature block below.

  10. Yes, it has a little short wire antenna. Unless you are going to put the Whole Room Transmitter right next to where people will be listening, recommend that you do not use that one. The range is terrible. Do a search on Amazon for CZE-05b. Lots of choices. Pick one that best meets your needs. You will be MUCH happier.

  11. I am posting this because I see a couple of members have lost their Previews for reasons unknown. Whether due to a software issue, Windows, or something else, I can't say, but whatever the reason, you can protect yourself, (possibly from yourself), from losing your hard work with a few simple precautions. 1) In the Preview slideout window. Use the copy button to make a copy of your "good" Preview and give it a new name. I always make changes to the copy first to avoid making a mess of the original preview. If you apply the Preview copy to a copy of the sequence and it messes

  13. All of this IS GONE as of Monday February 17, 2020. It WAS NOT SOLD! I gave it all away to an LOR forum member in Florida that was able to come and pick it all up. I'm not going to say who got it, but they will let you know when they're ready to reveal who acquired everything. Why for free? Because it was just taking up space and collecting dust, I had an extra controller I no longer needed and had read about a person here on the forum saying they're going to need another controller to up their display. And I've had quite a few folks on this forum pass things on to me and help me ou

  16. This year our show had more traffic because of the news story. I am always outside to say hello and answer questions ,most people are nice and understand others want to see the show also, I do ask people not to stop smack in the front of the house and to turn their lites off. The other nite I had a guy in a very tricked out Jeep wrangler stop crossways of the street, blocking both ways I asked nicely if he could move so people coming into the neighborhood could get by, he politely told me where &^%*$# to go. So I went to the other cars and told them to hang on and I went in and shut it

  17. Time to give back to the community It's a unique situation that starts off with the family doing the drum roll for the lights to turn on and then edits into the hallelujah song played in the movie. This share includes faces that I did. It was my first attempt at faces using papagayo. No where near perfect but it gets the job done. Leave me a message here or PM and I'll get to them as I can! -Alan

  18. Update: So, I used to be an IT tech and when a user came to me with some strange issue with their computer my standard answer was "shut up and reboot". I should have listened to my own advice. I rebooted my pc yesterday morning (due to a windows update) and after that my original show has been running perfect - no shutdowns/resets or blinks. Go figure.

  26. Only a slight connection to lights. I signed a contract for a new driveway in September with company saying they could do it soon. Well they missed soon and wanted to do it after I already had wires across the old driveway. Wires were too low for trucks to get under. Had to push install into spring.

  27. I have 2 original CCRs that I purchased in 2009 and the original ribbons failed in 2018. I replaced the ribbons with what was called "5M 6803 IC 5050 150LED RGB strips" that I bought on Ebay. Just do search and you will find them. I did have to cut the wires to attach the new strip with original CCR plug and I had to change the controller to BRG in the hardware editor. they work great and have been working perfect since 2018.

  30. Nice story Brian and sorry to see you go dark. I went dark last year but came back because I missed the thrill of Christmas lights and all the people that came to see them. My new display is a down sized version of the old one and a lot easier for me to manage. Good luck and enjoy whatever you are going to do in your spare time Earle

  35. What I mean by that is stop trying to take short cuts and easier routes when running your LOR network. The LOR network is RS485 which is a serial network meaning daisy chaining your controllers end to end. There are no switches or routers, there are no Y's or T's or even W's for that matter. The only way to connect them on a computer is through your usb port and usb adapter, NOT THE ETHERNET PORT!! Your LOR RS485 network can be up to 4,000 feet long so there is no shortage there. If you connect your controllers any other way you stand a good chance of burning up that controller that you paid g

  38. I have several WoW Lights stands and they have held up well over several years -- outside 12 months/year. I lost one this summer when a tree fell on it. tree drove it all the way into the ground and bent the top portion 90 degrees but it did not break. Can't use it but to go through that and not break says something for the quality.

  39. I have been building my own. If you know how to use a drill and hack saw, you can make stands using 1 1/2 inch aluminum angle and 1/2 inch electrical conduit for less than $10 each. I cut conduit to 4 feet which allows controller and connectors to remain off the ground. These work very well and hold up to Wisconsin winters.

Open SS Open the SUP file File/ Export to sequence editor Deselect include Macro Channels Enter It will create an sup.lms file Open that file in SE Copy paste directly in to your pixie ports. *** Do not copy/ paste all at once. Split it in half. Sometimes SE will crash if you try to copy paste to large of a file. JR

  44. In S5, if you have a sequence that has a Windows command saved, when trying to play the sequence in Sequencer, the Sequencer apparently attempts to confirm that it can run the Windows command. It does not actually run the command as far as I can tell, but tries to. That is certainly not needed when sequencing. The only work around is to remove the Windows command and HOPEFULLY remember to put it back. This is particularly a pain when sequencing on a different computer than the show run on - and the command that is suupposed to be executed only exists on the show computer. Request, can

  46. Here is a quick answer with a couple of points. 1 - Highly recommend that you use pixel strings and NOT ribbons. The ribbons are not durable enough to handle that kind of installation. 2 - Yes, you will need pixel controller or controllers. Staying in the LOR product line, that means either Pixie series or the Pixcon 16. If you go with E1.31, there are lots of options, but a whole bunch more stuff to learn. 3 - For most of us, getting singing faces to look good is VERY hard. Some people find it easy. In my case, all my singing faces (LED strings, not pixels) were done by

  48. @Box on Rails Yes this is new and yes it will embed the picture inside the sequence. You can also export the picture back out if needed. It's a nice feature. This was talked about in one of the threads I started and here is the link. It seems to work really well. You can see the new motion effects stuff in the sample sequence. There is one with the embedded picture as well. C:\Users\username\Documents\Light-O-Rama\Sequences\Samples Matt Brown posted an updated sample sequence because the one that gets installed with v5.4 was missing the embedded picture.

  49. Easy. 1 ) Open the music file. 2 ) Create a new track. 3 ) Open the vocal file (which creates a second instance of Audacity). 4 ) Select of the vocal, and copy. 5) Go back to the music file, and paste the vocal into the empty track. 6 ) Adjust as needed.
