  1. Nice job man! Thanks for that! It’s pretty cool! His was the first house I’ve seen with them.
  2. This is Jerry Hite YouTube. He’s in Lexington SC, about an hour from my house. IDK if he’s in here or not.. I’ve watched a few of his videos off my wife’s Facebook. He goes into some details on Facebook... And he’s been on the local news a lot.... he has raised SEVERAL thousand dollars for the make a wish foundation..I’ve seen him on the news several times...... Check out his fan blades he made in front of his house this past year . pretty cool. https://m.youtube.com/user/golferdad100/featured
  3. Thanks!! My first singing props!! And yeah. Due to the lighting and my iPhone camera, you can’t really see the colors. These are all 3 node smart modules that JR uses on his house. He recommended them. but they took a month and 2 days to get here from China. This is only my second year,, I wanted to go on and jump right into pixels before I ended up with 10 AC controllers.. I’ve still gotta get the pumpkins, the pumpkin lights. And 1 more dumb controller.... as far as my house outline, I have everything I need but a few more lights. I’m waiting on my Holiday Coro pigtails and power supplies for power injection points..... JR helped me the other night with some of my channel conflicts, and after that.,, NONE of my house outline was working. I figured it out though.! Your sequence looks amazing! I may request it so I can get the beats.... I’ve got 32 spare channels. I just don’t know what route I’m going to take as far as Using the AC controllers.
  4. Got it! Had to get my wife to upload it for me. I don’t have any accounts.... me and my bride aren’t your normal millennials all our friends call us the old people. im still working on the motions. ( don’t pay attention to those!) But I believe I’m done with the singing faces. Just took the video with my iPhone.
  5. How are you guys recording your screen for YouTube videos? And how to you put the license stuff for the music in so the sound will not get deleted on YouTube and Facebook?
  6. I will post what I have up tomorrow. I have 2 singing faces done. And over half of my house outline done all with motion effect.... I haven’t figured out what I’m going to use for my beats in the yard. But I have 32 channels to play with there. I’m happy to have some channels left over this year!
  7. I am going with the 2 pixie 8s..... i was planning on using 1 channel for the roof. and 1 channel for the facia.... for easier sequencing... I have both controllers set for the unit ID 01 and 02. some of my lights came in.. i only ordered 200 to start with.... after testing. I realize i am going to have to power inject every 40 nodes for a full bright white the roof will be 142 nodes if i space them 2 inches apart with 4 PI points. 119 if i space them 3 inches apart. with 3 PI points. will this be okay? Does the PIs take some of the load off of the 350w meanwell power supply? based off of JR's longest run of around 150 of these, Im thinking this will be okay. I dont really wanna seperate the roof and facia. IDK how sequencing half the roof and half the facia would be... i think it would be a touch more aggravation.
  8. YESSSSS!!!! Nice job on both videos guys! I’ll upload mine when done. Haven’t had much time to work on it tonight.
  9. if you want to PM me your email, i can send you what i have.. i have been working on it for about 2.5 hours. i can send you what i have so far. i think i am catching on pretty fast. the beats are pretty much the same. I dont have all of it... i may be able to finish it up tonight or tomorrow night. just 1 singer right now....
  10. NVM! i can not believe i did not see that.......... sorry guys.. i was digging too deep... ITS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF ME..... 😒
  11. is there a way to slow the speed on S5 like you could with s4? i cant seem to find it
  12. I have learned the hard way that copy and paste is only good for small lengths 😁..... I enjoy sequencing. i was just asking if there was a secret way . btw, My lights (3 NODEs you recommended) will be here wednesday) Id like that video also if you are okay with it. weigh2fast4u@yahoo.com Thanks man!
  13. WOW in ONE SITTING! amazing! I am going to try to do the "catchy song" from lego movie 2. One good thing about it, is it is repetitive. hopefully the plant runs good tonight and I can work on it some. I imagine you use the smallest timing grid. correct?
  14. Are you guys sequencing these by using the feature on Superstar? (the singing faces are tough) if you are, how accurate is this feature?......
  15. GLAD I COULD HELP! 😂 thanks for checking it out!... and to JR, I like this one better 😁
  16. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Q2BSD5S/ref=nav_timeline_asin?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 just thought it was neat and will be fun for the kids... dont know how many of you get the pleasure to know how "everything is awesome" in lego movies
  17. SO.... me and the kids were watching The Lego movie 2..... i think im gonna do a sequence on "a catchy song" off of the soundtrack.... ive been listing to it over and over... and the wife was like PLEASE STOP!!!! lol i keep humming it. its driving her KRAZY//// 😁 Check it out.... "this songs gonna get stuck inside yo head!!!!!!" The lego movie 2.. "Catchy Song"
  18. AWESOME. Thanks! I’ll do that later tonight when I get caught up at work!
  19. Oh I see! Yeah! That would be nice to be able to change all effects and everything. Because I started out making everything orange and purple. But purple and green looks better lol
  20. okay. You are correct. I consider myself a newbie... I don’t wanna have 50k Channels of AC controllers then it be too late to switch over to pixels. I have a small house and a small front yard. I may as well go pixels. My first year I used 16/32 channels for Halloween and Christmas. Now it’s time to go big.... this year, animated character, and house outline and possibly the arches on my 16 channels if I have time..... next year will be a mega tree.... but very sorry , you are correct.
  21. Guys all i have been doing is highlighting the effect, Right click, new effect, change existing effect..... if you just want to change the color of a simple on/off,,,, highlight it,,,, select color in toolbar, change the colors you want it to be, and hit the “M” key... does this help?
  22. Can I piggyback the Ethernet with a 16ac controller or a pixie 8? Or will I need another 485 adapter?
