  1. Have you taken a look at Xlights? I wouldn't recommend for this year as its getting late. FREE software is a plus. You can import LOR sequences as well. I just started from scratch with Xlights when I made the jump from 100% incans to 100% RGB.
  2. great post on setting up the pi and colorlight(s). Takes you through every step.. https://auschristmaslighting.com/threads/multiple-colorlight-cards-with-fpp-for-p5-panels-guide.11762/
  3. From what I recall it was pretty user friendly. I didn't get into it too much. Its been 9 months since I've touched it. Pretty sure you can download a free trial and give it a try
  4. I hired someone in the past to take drone footage of the display (wasn't cheap). I decided to just buy a drone as part of my blinky budget for the year. I used DJI Phantom 4 and Corel Video Studio, not that I did much editing of the drone footage. I will do a little bit better job this year hopefully with multiple views etc. 4k video is a plus
  5. You try Xlights? Its FREE and very user friendly with tons of tutorials and FREE shared sequences
  6. Facebook isn't required. You can pay $15.00 via Paypal https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.paypal.me%2Fsocalchristmas%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR13_S84VD3OSXyeNcRjm48aEUIls7Eu2FC-6Rd8-XL2PMYNJLPgrXqKu8k&h=AT2AI4A5JHFX15P1Yx9uJLrfSNaUV3xjKv9HlRSOmgC2TuNfHg60FwluyPHDdTNImIbFTJleuA750KBDH5gO4tcOFIyge9oTWtiDvWUtnDGFFu6OiBcvURW74sfsJZaH6TF3Jf2uEPM8KKGqf1Y

  9. I see you're located in Los Angeles.There is a SoCal lighting group you may want to look into. Tons of people close to you that can help out. There is a mini on September 7th in Corona. Check it out if you haven't already. www.facebook.com/groups/socalchristmas/
  10. If you want something stand alone the HC-1 panel controller is very simple and great for a tune to sign https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32643418307.html The software for it isn't the greatest but it works fine for a tune to sign. I used one of these for several years for a 3x4 P10 matrix for my tune to sign. This would be much easier and cheaper than BBB, Pi, Colorlight etc. The Matrix Pihat from CFOL is another option. I used two of the Matrix Pihats last year and it was very easy to setup and worked great. Lots of options out there

    I would strongly recommend you read the ACL101 manual several times. This is a must for RGB or pixels. https://auschristmaslighting.com/threads/auschristmaslighting-101-manual.1889/
  12. I'm about 30 minutes away in Buellton. No longer using LOR though. 30k+ pixel display with Xlights. Glad to see someone else in the area. There aren't any other displays I know of close
  13. I suggest Xlights and its FREE! Another option worth looking into
  14. +1 for a Pi. Cant beat the price for a "show computer" at a whopping $30.00...
  15. I've tested actual current draw on over 30,000 12v nodes. NONE of them were 60ma(.06 amps). That's a very safe number if someone doesn't have the capabilities to actually test them. I find it nice to actually test items in my display and not just go off of what a vendor tells me.
