  1. Hello, I got the first set of four sets finished and tested. These will be stacked with the smaller one on the top window and the larger one on the bottom window. 1/2" cpvc pipe with tees and elbows. Small window is 135 12v HC Hobby bullets in 5 strips of 27 each, 2" spacing. Large window is 155 12v Hc Hobby bullets in 5 strips of 31 each, 2' spacing. Powered by the LOR Pixie II with adapter, LOR to HC. Can't wait to get them all done! https://www.brighteon.com/0e5d6e87-30e7-4cc9-b950-12b119f63985
  2. First, I created a prop called 'Window 2 Upper String 1 of 5' with the exact number of bullets and ID number. Then told it to start at the bottom. Saved it. Then positioned it over the window frame. Second, and etc, I created a prop for each string and moved them into position over the window lining them up vertically, like bars. Now this is where in practice, I had to flip in the preview Prop 2 of 5 & 4 of 5 to get the data flowing in the vertical direction. I could only achieve flipping or rotating in the preview by creating a prop for each string. Thirdish, I grouped all 5 props together as "Window 2 Upper' and created a ME row. Fourish, I added the Window 2 Upper ME row to the whole house ME group. Fiveish, I drank a beer.
  3. Very interesting, thanks to everyone. No one mentioned cutting the string at the top of each strip and adding a 3pin wire to reach the bottom of each strip, therefore keeping the data flowing in one direction over all 155 bullets, no skipped ones. I have those heat shrink solder ones. I will try different ways to preview the prop and see how it acts in real life. Thank again. I don't know how to screen capture yet, sorry. Ross
  4. This would be one of eight, or one of the four sets. There are four upper windows and four lower windows. The lower and upper windows , above and below, are connected to the pixie II port one bottom window, port two top window. Bottom left strip one start pixel one, ending strip five top right end pixel 155. Total pixels in the string are 163. Skipping 26, 27 at fold one, 53, 54 at fold two, etc. S5 prop setup is as a vertical matrix with 5 strings, no fold, 31 per string. That allows me to black out or null the two bullets on each fold (there are 8 dead bullets). The preview shows exactly what I want to see. sequential up from the bottom to the top on each vertical strip. However; in practice, strip two and four are opposite flow. (I guess following the data flow from left to right) Is there a work around in the software? Do I have to add wire from pixel 31 (top of strip one) to pixel 32 (bottom of strip two), and so on?
  5. I don't have a facebook account or want one. But I did enjoy reading what was publicly posted on that page from time to time. I did learn some things and enjoyed George's humor. Please reconsider your PRIVATE move. Thank you. RIP
  6. Well i believe i am using the white box Pixie2D's 12vdc according to the user manual Sept, 28, 2017 V1.03 page 22. On the back cover of the book the Total Amps are rated at 10, probably 5 each port. But a .52amp draw for 150 bulbs per port all white, I 'm not worried! rack 'em and stack 'em!
  7. it's next to Show All Items. Looks like connect wires or something.
  8. You need to create a new configuration and export it. There's a little tiny button next to the window that has the channel name in it. Click on the drop down and go to the bottom where it says Grid Configuration, then import or export from there.
  9. I use Pixie II controllers and I am moving props around to maximize the per port output of 170 instead of buying additional controllers. (at least that is what my wife thinks). So I hooked up 150 LOR bulbs WS2811 (3 strands of 50) on each port one and two of the Pixie II. At 100% white, each port was .52 AMPS per my Kilawatt meter. so 1.04 AMPS total for 300 bulbs. so on a 15 amp store bought extension cord I could plug at least ten of these Pixie II into my home 15 amp outlet? Ok, tell me I am nuts! is my Kilawatt meter broke?
  10. I had time to upgrade to S5 and everything is working great. Adding Peace Pixel Stakes with 5 bullet nodes to a preview was tricky. I have 60. I added 60 props with each their own channel assignments as RGB, one motion effect row. I created separate previews and copied them. I exported props, then imported props. When creating a sequence, it added one motion effect row per pixel stake. (I also use channel level) per stake for other effects like the candle effect mentioned above. I created a nice bounce effect across the stakes by using the "wave" motion effect on the first (top) motion effect row, then 'Chased' the motion effect down across the others. That worked.
  11. Coop, I went to the garage and hooked up the floods and added them as strobing in a sequence on channel 4 & 5. They work and strobe as needed. You are correct that is does not show in the Preview Playback Window. My floods are set up as RGB not traditional in the preview.
  12. I opened a preview and added more bulbs to a pixie 2 port. It only allowed me to add 170 bulbs per port or max circuit 510, then carried over that others. Since I don't like cutting bulbs stings, I'll max out at 150. When I opened the channel level all 150 were there to program!
  13. Matt, every time I hit save on a preview, it adds a higher version number to the preview. I always compress to save time between loading sequences for shows. My shows have no repeat songs because I have many sequences. Is it okay to go into the L: file and delete the older version of compressed files with the lower preview number? Seems like a large amount of data storage just sitting there. Of course you already know all this. Thank you
