Newbie 10' 16-Channel Mega Tree (Let It Go)


Recommended Posts

Here is my second sequence, set to Let It Go from Frozen.



If someone can please give me an idea how best to video this, please feel free to comment.  I used a GoPro Hero3, set to 720, 60 FPS, and Narrow FOV.  It appears to have a hard time adjusting to flashing lights, and then YouTube does another layer of processing when I upload it.  What is lost in translation is all the smooth transitions from dark to light and back.


For the basis of the tree, we followed the 2x4 wood method as outlined by YouTube user amx4perry, posted Nov 30, 2009.  The only difference is that we painted all our wood flat black.

We have one (1) 16 channel Light-O-Rama residential controller, and one (1) Showtime Central add-on, which plays the sequences from an SD card via the mini-Director and broadcasts the music via the FM transmitter (you all know this, but for other newbies...).  This means I did not have to use a computer or run a Cat5 cable out to the tree to make it work, or setup speakers that would annoy the neighbors.
Lights for this year are all standard (aka cheap) Christmas lights from Home Depot.  Channel colors are as follows:
Chan 1: White
Chan 2 - 5: Blue
Chan 6: White
Chan 7 - 10: Blue
Chan 11: White
Chan 12 - 15: Blue
Chan 16: White light ball on top of tree
My first sequence, set to Ho Hey by the Lumineers was previously posted out here on this forum.
