  1. Good question. I would like to be able to have this option as well. My roofline, for example, was mostly programmed last year at the individual pixel level. However, I did do some programming in xlights and then pasted into SE (presumably could do this in the pixel editor this year). It would be nice to be able to do both.
  2. Still seems like a bug, though, as there are no such thing as channels 513 - 600 in any given universe, right? Maybe should generate an error message or something?
  3. I would delete the existing 1800 to create a new baseline config. And then use Vegomatic to add the 2400 back in to the baseline. It's very fast and easy. Took me a couple tries to understand a couple of the settings, but what you're asking would take less than 5 minutes, assuming all the pixels are in contiguous addresses.
  4. Fade from your chosen color to black. That should do the trick.
  5. I kinda like the project. We see similar stuff on TV and I've often wished I had an excuse to try it. Sounds like a fun (albeit maybe not cheap) project to undertake. Wish I was closer. I'd love to help. One thought on the break between movements... You could use an interactive show where the press of a button (likely from the drum major) could start the next sequence. That would allow for some variability in between each movement, in case something doesn't go 100% to plan. They could press the button when they're ready for the next sequence to start.
  6. I do both. For my pixel trees (mini & mega), I like NC for its effects and don't do any pixel-level sequencing. However, for my roofline, I primarily did pixel-level sequncing (albeit with a lot of cut and paste). For this, I used LOR. NC is awesome. I'm really looking forward to v4. For me, what I really want LOR to do is to fix the horrendous load and save times for the files, take advantage of the 64-bit hardware and OS that we all have (to include using WAAAAYYYY more memory than they're able allocate in today's software), and to draw my whole display in visualizer. And hopefu
  7. Agree, Ron. Except, I'm to the point where I don't think I can trudge through any more. S3 ran my show just fine (50 universes) this year. I did, however, have to revert back to 3.9.0, as the memory management code that came along in 3.10.X and later would actually cause lots of lag and make effects look very "jerky". I had the problems in 3.11.2, but they went away when I backed up to 3.9.0. My only rationale is that it had to be the additional memory code that came along in 3.10.0. My brute force hardware approach (translation: very fast processor and lots of RAM) actually handled it
  8. Not sure how you want to activate the lights, Brian, or if you want them sequenced to their music, but one option to consider would be the Raspberry pi running the Falcon Pi Player software. I haven't tried it myself yet, but some people use this to run their whole show. The pi is only about $40 - $50. The software is free. You can sequence in LOR or xLights/NC. xLights will convert to the Falcon Pi Player format. That would eliminate the need for the laptop. FYI... You can't "talk" to the e6804 via the ELL. The ELL is only for the LOR protocol, to my knowledge. That said, if you do
  9. Unofficial, but based on unsolicited feedback, it's Soldier's Silent Night, by a landslide.
  10. FWIW... I heard the guy responsible for it is a HAM operator and is tying all the houses together via a HAM radio implementation of some kind. I didn't try to verify, but seemed like a reputable source.
  11. And here's a link to the original thread I created when I built it a couple years ago. This year will be its 3rd year. 3rd new charity. Still going strong. http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/21157-new-donation-box/
  12. Here's mine: http://youtu.be/iqRPol6Pn_A?list=UU_4-yG4wM1iXnzRTVhFu0JA
  13. Wow. Looks like it's handling things well. I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll see the same type of results. I'm a couple weeks away from that "test", but I'll report back.
  14. I don't have the manual, but if memory serves, I think that the power for the board actually comes from the second bank. I'd check the fuse on the first bank as a starting point.
