Hi all,

 

so I am new to LOR. Trying to figure out this whole thing! Are there any forum stickies or good (but not too technical) how to videos on how to begin this process?

 

I am late in the game too, so I know I am going to have to cut back some on getting this rolling.

 

Additionally, do any of you have any advice on where to get lights in bulk?

 

Look forward to whatever advice you all can provide! looks like you all are a tremendous resource!

There is a link at the top of the forums called "Video Tutorials" which has some very good information. Hopefully it will be helpful.

 

Welcome to the hobby!

Hi Don,

thanks so much. I was checking out those videos. I guess my quest to light up my neighborhood, leads me to wonder is it best to use multi color LED's or single color LED's? What do you guys recommend for light lengths? I was considering getting 100-300 ft lengths of blue, white, green, red, is that recommended or is better to use shorter lengths and string together?

 

I decided to just start with the Showtime Central 16 channel starter kit....so I want to try and maximize things for this year. I am willing to take any and all advice. As naïve as this sounds, I am not even sure I know where to begin or how to begin stringing lights together, haha.

I wrote this article a few years ago. This was before a lot of the RGB stuff came to the market, though.

 

A lot of what is in the article still applies. You'll need to figure out what you want to do, plan it out, and start acquiring the materials needed to do so.
