  1. I had Santa come on a friends personal fire truck this past year, but he came a few days before Christmas. I decorated the fire truck with lights and they actually went around to some neighborhoods not serviced by the local fire department's Santa express. Given that we are a light show, I gave out 100 LED party foam light sticks to all the kids on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for 2019 and again in 2020 (socially distanced). It is really cool to look out and not only see our lights, but all those flashing lights in people's cars. I bought them off of Amazon, they are about 18" in length, and have 3 different lighting modes.
  2. James, I have requested one of your sequences before (Zombie in Oct 2019). I finally worked it in to my Halloween show last year. Anyways, I would like a copy of Fireflies if you are still sharing. My daughter actually brought this song up recently saying I should do it, so I was very surprised when this popped up in current posts. I would like a copy sent to hasslerk@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. I also add that if I video it and post it on my page that you and JR will be given credit.
  3. @TexasLights that seems to be the correct site, plus the email matches and he seems to be a Seahawks fan. But where did he go? Not responding to your post.
  4. I was hoping/planning to go, especially since we have airplane tickets to use from a cancelled trip last year. But we now have a wedding to go to that weekend. Maybe next year...
  5. I used the 30% pixel and linear curves (depending on device) last year via prop definitions and still people were astounded that it was as bright as it was. Running at 30% gave me a better chance of videoing the show.
  6. Dumb RGB light strings usually means all the lights on the string will be the same color (hence being "dumb"). Usually they are wired with 4 wires: 1 each for Red, Green and Blue, and a common. You use something like a LOR CMB24D to control what color you want the string of lights to be. RGB just means you can mix the red/green/blue to make any color you want the string to be.
  7. I did this with 4 of my Boscoyo singing bulbs; not HC. I originally bought them as incans (actually for LED from HLE) but after costing out the lights strings for the mouth movements, I found it was cheaper to make the leap to Pixels, and I could do so much more with them. So I drilled them out, twice. Once for the bulb side and once for the pixel base side (bullet types). Being the perfectionist that I am, I was not happy with all the drill holes, but I convinced myself that from 100 feet away, at night, no one would notice. As you can see in my videos (signature block) those in particular worked out just fine. I bought another 4 pre-drilled for pixels and added 2 of them to my show for a total of 6.
  8. Phew! My mind is not as as lost as I think sometimes. As for HC stuff, yes that is true. For those I made my own (poorly) years ago. I keep thinking I should re-do them, but then again it is just for preview.
  9. I do this all the time using my Director (G3-MP3). I have three "shows". An early morning one that just turns on the traditional lights on the shrubs from like 5am to 8am using an animation file. The main show that runs from 5pm until 9 or 10pm with all the show songs and all the lights. Then a post-show show that has all the lights on and some subtle animations on the RGB props until 11pm. You have to pay attention when selecting your sequences and writing your shows to the SD card, making sure you properly set start and stop times, but it is very do-able. Since I change the stop time of the main show for the weekend, I just have to be careful setting the start time for the post-show show. You work on configuring one show at a time via LOR HUB (S5).
  10. I have the HolidayCoro singing 4' Pumpkin and 4' Christmas tree that I use in my setups, as well as 4 small singing Christmas trees and 6 Boscoyo standing RGB bulbs. I am not at home to double check, but I believe I downloaded the Boscoyo pixel bulb configuration via the prop definition/controller setup in LOR (S5). I know I did NOT configure it myself. I will double check how I downloaded the definition tonight.
  11. I was having items removed from my cart within minutes of the start, being marked no longer available. I lost out on Pixie8s and 16s, and easy light linkers because of the PayPal issue. My first checkout attempt was probably 90 seconds after the start. :(
  12. I also tried a good 30+ times to use my credit card, getting the same error about communicating w/Paypal. I watched as item after item was removed from my cart because it said they were no longer available and I could not get checkout to complete. With one item left in my cart, I tried using my PayPal account instead of my credit card and it worked. So I got one item (an N4-G4-MP3 director). Disappointed in Leesburg. Next year straight to PayPal.
  13. I keep getting There is problem in communicating with PayPal. Please try again later.
  14. Noticed the same behavior right away upon first use of 5.6.0 and recognized it was likely due to the processing required to generate the spectrogram. But I like the feature so it is what it is. Thanks for the input on how to make it faster if not used in a given sequence. Question: Why does the spectrogram have to be generated every time? If the audio file is not changing can't the spectrogram be saved in some way, maybe outside the .loredit file?
