Okay...here are just a few of my videos...actually the only three I have finished!! LOL

I apologize for the HORRIBLE video quality...but that's what happens when you buy a new camera, don't test it out and then shoot 4 hours of video New Years Eve and the display is taken down the next day...

Amazing Grace Techno by Yule...This sequence I got from someone..wish I could remember who, so I could publicly thank you.

Takin' Care of Christmas...I pretty much "stole" this sequence from Chuck Downs. (after watching the first few seconds of his video I said "I gotta do that"!)...whom I aspire to be able to sequence HALF as good as he does someday



Downs Family Christmas Video...for comparison and to see how it is done RIGHT!!!

http://vimeo.com/8451445

Blue Christmas by Elvis Presley...this is the first song I sequenced two years ago...so it holds a special place in my heart and soul...

What - it's March and you're just getting video posted? You think we have nothing better to do than just sit around and wait till you feel like it? You Seattlers must live in a permanent fog or something...

Actually, Jim, I disagree with your assessment of the camera, so feel free to dump it off on me if you want to get rid of it. I'm sorry you didn't get video before the Weber tree bit it - I was looking forward to seeing that. Nice job with the lights and the sequencing, but your video editing makes me dizzy - either that or my rhinovirus infestation is affecting me more than I realize...

Yeah - but what users of Windows PC's HAVEN'T felt that way? Granted, not everyone chooses to make pizza out of their keyboard with their cranium, but I'll bet 98% of us have felt like doing it...

His yard is spread out, he has a number of trees in his yard and those lights in the back ground look a mile away. His layout & your layout are way different and so you really cannot compare the two displays because they are two distinct displays.

You are in the same situation as I am and that is........ a compact space in which to work. I can see all your lights clearly whereas some of his are far away. In my books you both did a good job.

You could in away make the same layout by making some PVC trees. If you can make a trunk with just 4 limbs times 4 trees that would really help.

Did you ask him for his sequence?

**I wasn't really comparing the display layouts, because EVERYONES is different...I was commenting on his sequencing skills**

Did you ask him for his sequence?

**Nope...at that time I was a firm believer in doing my own sequences...boy, did that go out the window last year!!! LOL**

That is true but, I wonder how your sequence would look on his display?

Anyhow I emailed him about his sequence but I received no reply as of yet.
