  1. Ah....ok. Never thought of using them. Hiding the wire becomes an issue, I would think, but some white paint would fix that. Can you get those in "strings', or do you end up having to connect each one?
  2. How do you run 3 nodes p0er section? Are you saying 3 nodes act as 1 pixel as a strip would? If so, how do you accomplish this? I am thinking of replacing my strips with nodes, but to get spacing I would like (2") I would have to double the pixel count. This would mean a lot of sequence moding, and maybe even some PI. Easy answer would to have 3 nodes as one pixel, but haven't figured out a way to do that.
  3. I was going to start today. However, there was a drenching rain yesterday. Not sure how most feel about packing things up after a soaking rain, but I have taken things out the following year to find them still wet. Any thoughts on this?
  4. Thank you for the details. Very interesting.
  5. I only do Christmas because my wife would have a fit if I spent all this money on just Halloween. Christmas is big, but Halloween is the reason I started this. Better songs. Lots of metal, and rock.
  6. Is 4" spacing the norm? I'm thinking it won't look anywhere near as full?
  7. I am considering switching from strips to nodes on the house roof, windows, and doors. Currently, the strips use 3 leds for 1 pixel. This gives me a count of 28 pixels, 64 pixels, and 68 pixels along my roof. What happens when I switch to nodes? Do I still count 3 pixels as 1, or do I end up tripling the number of pixels, and resequencing for the new number? I can't imagine that 64 pixels becomes 192 pixels? I also can't imagine the spacing being as far as the length of 3 leds in a strip? That would be a lot of empty space between. I am thinking that I am overthinking this. Shoul
  8. It gets to where none of the sequences fit your display, and you end up having to piece it together from a couple, if not several, sequences. This is where shared sequences really come in. However, doing it that way has a tendency to leave it as a less than unison display. It can effect the dynamics. It also still ends up requiring a lot of work. HS sequences have no real widow pixels, and very little to no AC channels. The Eves, and such are too short to really work with my roof line, and house outline, so that requires manipulation. Wowlights has window pixels, but the house outline
  9. Once you get into RGB, and your display grows, your choices become very limited. There's really only a couple places to turn to, and you will learn quickly that a lot of the sequences from any one place will kinda all start to look the same, with repeated use of the same effects, and patterns. Finding sequences that fit a custom RGB layout can be frustrating, and custom sequences don't come cheap. This is my 6th year, and I am at the point where I simply have to learn to sequence myself, or just keep using the same songs every year. My only other option would be to purchase sequences with
  10. "I would like a copy sent to dcroc@verizon.net" "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share". Thank you
  11. Looking at LOR purchased sequences. What are "Motion Packs", and can they be used in S4? If so, can the be edited, and changed, to work with E1.31?
  12. Any pics? I find the price of stands from anywhere to be high for what they are. Really never much material, or fabrication involved. Someone asked me what the most expensive part of the hobby is. I answered "the accessories". First thing I learned.....PVC is your best friend.
