  1. I have a 32 string 56 pixels per string mega tree. It is 16 strings of 112 pixels folded over at the top. I am using the 16 outputs on my 682, I string of 112 on each. On the controller setup I have it zigzag at every 56. In Pixel editor I have done the same. Should the setup in the pixel editor be 32 strings of 56 with no folds? I have half the strings running up and the other half down. Any help would be appreciated
  2. I am setting up a pixel tree prop that is 16 strings 112 pixels each (folded over for 32) starting with dmx universe 2. Universe one has all my a/c channels. On the right column I have selected 510 max channels to match my e682. My question is in regards to the "individual start channel button. Would I need to check this box or leave it alone? Will I be able to sequence with the lights working after setting it all up? Thanks, Steve
  3. You don't need a video card that expensive to run 2 monitors for LOR. I used this one on my desktop computer, works great. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7373215&SRCCODE=WEBGOOPA&scid=scplp692098&gclid=CjwKEAiAveWnBRCzjqf4zpuUkGYSJABcoZbHog-58whO_IhJVBKIabhojwFfZPwOXwWsMJnedxgn9xoCSwrw_wcB
  4. After setting up the network configuration did you close out LOR and then re-open it?
  5. Have you considered taxidermy? A stuffed cat with rgb pixels for eyes? just a thought...
  6. I would recommend a 6804 or a 682 pixel controller. Is is very easy to setup and use. You can run up to 2040 pixels off each one. Even if you start small (pixel arches) you will have lots of expansion room for future "go big or go home" projects. http://www.sandevices.com/products.html I also agree that spiral trees rule.

  8. I have a Mcmaster Carr close by. Shipping is silly.

  11. I bring/climb an 8 foot ladder across the street, and place my camera on the top of it. This way I am above the traffic and it doesn't affect my video. (I can sit out front for an hour without a single car, and as soon as I turn the camera on, a car is bound to show up) As far as the music, I use Windows live movie maker and just add in the mp3 file. Here is an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LntdEORlxAY

  14. The easiest way I have found to do it: First tin the wire ends with solder. I smear some additional solder flux on the strips pads,(messy, but really helps) Then add a small "drop" of solder to each little pad. I then reheat the drop on the pad and sink the wire into it. If you place a good "drop" of solder on the pad, no additional solder is needed after the wire sinks in. If you look at certain sections of the light strip, you will see that some spots are soldered together. I try to match that amount of solder when placing the "drops" on the pad. I solder my wires to the top of th
