Is there video of the 50W RGB floods that LOR sells anywhere?

Since they won't be delivered for a while I'm working on the plan for where I'm going to put them. I hope that I can hide both of them behind a tree about 25ft away from the house (High and low).

 

The internet says it should be around 8,000 lumens Which will be enough to light up my neighbors houses too.

This video is (2) 50 watt RGB's from about 24ft shining on red-ish bricks in my courtyard.

Don't know about your neighbors house, but should work great on yours.

Stay with solid colors in your schemes. The pastels look great on your vis files, but get lost in real life.. Use silicone on the weatherproof cat5 connectors as they might leak...

Good luck

That should be fine then. The front of my house is half red brick and half white paneling

Great - seeing that you had faith and already purchased them before I posted this video..

You will like them a lot.

The video I shot has been playing all night every night since the 4th of July. Keeps Old Glory looking good.

Here's my thoughts on the programming from another post:

I don't think channel 4 has a use for me. It would change the amount of "on" time while in strobe mode. Factory set at varying time 8.33ms to 83.3ms, I can't see messing with it for a LOR show. Now, if in a lighting world set, someone in the trade may get off on programming it.. I'm leaving it as a blank channel.

Channels 1, 2, & 3, the RGB channels, are just that - programming the RGB colors. You can also use the effects at the same time as the colors. Say, a shimmering red or a twinkling blue, etc.

Channel 5 is freaking cool. It is strobe "off" time which varies 2 seconds to 8.33ms. This channel has some uses for me. Here's what I've found out so far that makes channel 5 really freaking cool. Program your floodlight RGB color channels to accent your show in your own personal taste, just like any other prop. But, for some popping accent, copy your strobe light channel into channel 5 of this strobe. Now whatever color you had is still that color, but it strobes with your other yard/tree strobes. Any color strobe light at anytime....

Thanks! That's helpful! We'll see where the programming goes. I'm thinking of using it to alter the hue and temperature of the lights during sequences for extra effect. At least during the Christmas show. They might have a more major role in Haloween.

I strung strands of red, green, and white lights in a zigzag on the side of my house and used the RGB Spots with them.  The spots fill in the gaps the strands have and cross coloring make for some cool effects. They look better in person than on the video.  Check around the 2:00 min mark.

Off subject and not trying to hijack, but just have to say ---

Love your arch/starburst pole combo. Very creative and I bet it's truly amazing in person.

Good job.

Back to subject, I just received my floods this year and haven't used them in a show yet. It looks like you really just wash with them. I have played around with mine just a little. Was wondering if that's all I should do too. Even pointed away, the flashing of quick colors not even in strobe mode kinda made me look away. Have you experienced that?

Thanks! 

 

I haven't tried using them in any other way in my show as they are just floods.  I tried to focus them a little, but they really don't go tight enough.  Even the one I have on the fence gate (Santa's Workshop Sign) it is almost too much.  But I do like the wash they make. 

The only other thing I've used them for is I DJ weddings and youth dances from time to time and I put all 8 of them on the top of my light bar.  The strobe effect works really great in a dark room.  I tried to find a pic, but can't locate it.  If I do I'll come back and post it.
