  1. The starter package is definitely the way to go. If there's one thing I can say it's that you'll start with a couple controllers and the multi lights, and about 5 days later you'll want 3 more controllers and RGB. I am starting out this year and my original plan had been to outline the house and white and green. Needless to say about 2 months after that concept I'm in to RGB strips and floods too. Anyways, yes the starter package is the way to go. Advanced software is a good choice as you will want and use those features. The usb45 is great. If you can connect to your computer that's definitel
  2. These kinds of projects never work. The problem is that all of the money would have to be raised by anyone within driving distance of the display. If I live in California I don't care about literally paying for a display in New York. I have nothing against the project creator but this is just not a good idea. Just the fact that the display is already so large gives off a weird vibe to the project. I suggest taking time on the sequencing which doesn't require any cash. There are plenty of elements in this display to create an engaging show but all I saw was a whole bunch of flashing.

  4. Happy 4th to you as well! If I wasn't so darn busy I'd put up some RGB floods and my firesticks and throw a display together.. Oh well. On to Halloween!
  5. Thanks for the response guys. I am holding off on DMX as it's my first year and I don't want to over-complicate the setup.
  6. Darn! Guess I'll be using them as steady atmospheric lights then. Definitely could still work very well in a Halloween display. Thank you for the response
  7. Has anyone used this Gemmy Kaleidoscope light in their display with LOR?: http://www.gemmy.com/Outdoor_Kaleidoscope_Spotlight_Multi_p/88579.htm wondering if it would be safe to use with a controller just with full on/off commands. If anyone has experience using these with LOR please advise. Thanks guys
  8. If I click a pen that's been sitting on my desk does that make me a national sports hero?
  9. I have been on a sequencing binge. So far I have: Joy To The World - Brian Culbertson Pretty Young Thing - Michael Jackson Billie Jean - Michael Jackson Black Or White - Michael Jackson Suite From The Polar Express Jingle Bells - Frank Sinatra Uptown Funk - Bruno Mars Originally I had not been thinking about pop songs being so viable from a choreography perspective but I have found that as long as I am careful about the amount of beat-driven flashes there are plenty of intricacies in the beats to make the show engaging.
  10. I burst in to the waiting room at the doctor's office; partially cut strings of lights wrapped around my neck and draped over my shoulder. A soldering iron dangled out of my pocket, and a mini tree dragged behind me on a battered piece of spt1 wire that was stuck around my ankle. In an instant everyone in the room peered up at what was probably one of the most horrific scenes they'd experienced in their life. I breathed heavily and trembled as if suffering from an extreme withdrawal of some kind. Before a single thought occurred to me I blew past the receptionist and darted down the hall towar
  11. I am going to organize a block party where everyone brings food/snacks, and at the end of the event I'm going to light my display. I figure that will be a fun way to get the neighbors involved in it, and hey they can't complain if they don't come :P. I am in a new neighborhood and this will be my first display as well. I think there will be a lot of people interested to show up if not just to meet all their new neighbors. I wouldn't send a letter either. You don't want the idea planted in their head that Christmas could potentially be a traffic nightmare lol.
