Gazebo

Recommended Posts

My Gazebo will be my Mega tree. Can't figure out what to do? First was thinking LED's yet with all the lines? Maybe CCR's yet at 16 ft maybe only prime lines and limitations on channels I am stumped. The CCR's will be year round mood lighting. If i use them inside for mood lighting the effect is useless for show.

HELP !!!!

Nice looking Gazebo!

I'd suggest wrapping each vertical column with 5 sets of lights on separate channels. Then wrap a CCR around the eave line and you could make it look like the light rotated around the gutter and then when it hit each column, it would drop light out of it down tot the ground.

Just a thought.

Sounds great yet 40 channels just for poles!!! CCR's Eat up a bunch! Was planning on 32 channels for this year on Gazebo and 80 channels total. Got two arches at 8 each, 16 mini trees one color and house 16 channels.

Wonder if you could adjust Dan's suggestion (which I think would look cool) so there is only 3-4 channels on each of the 8 vertical poles. I bet you could get away with 3 each if you sequenced the overlapping fade well (shooting down the pole). Would create a neat effect. And then you could also turn on the entire pole and "spin" the gazebo (much like a megatree). If wanted more channels per pole, could share channels on the pole on the opposite side (kinda like "up and over" on a megatree).

Could also densely run lights up and down the roof "sections"--1 channel per section. Could spin with that too.

I am curious--is this visible in the front yard, or from the street, where people will be viewing your show, or is this for your personal enjoyment in the backyard? Also if lighting the roof, you could skip the 1-2 sections on the back side that aren't visible to the viewer which would save some channels. Just make sure you account for those sections in your sequence when spinning (or else it will appear to speed up every time it goes past that section).

You have a similar problem as I have with my octagon flower beds. In my sequence editor, I have top view laid out, but when you view it outdoors, you see only 4 sides from any one angle. It looks more impressive in the editor. You have the ablity to stand inside the gazebo and see the full rotation if the outside lights are visible from inside.

CCR's don't affect your "conventional" channels in any way. Each CCR comes with it's own controller.
