CyberVol Posted June 2, 2022 Share Posted June 2, 2022 (edited) A little background… I have always loved and truly marvel at the synced light shows designed, built and executed by those here, on YouTube and elsewhere. I love the Blinding Lights with the tree, snowflakes, singing Christmas tree, spotlights on the roof, giant led panel on the garage door, etc. and would love to just replicate that show, tbh. Each year, when the new shows start coming out, I am inspired to try the same…but it’s already November and way (WAY!) too late in the holiday season to even get the equipment, much less set up the rest of my show. What then follows is a few weeks where I swear to be ready for next year, and begin a sincere but largely half-assed process of exploring the idea. I cruise this sub for tips and tricks, placing a heavy weight to your advice or suggestions, and watch some YouTube tutorials….but it’s largely like everyone is speaking a completely different language, and so advanced that I struggle to follow. I hear about Falcons, clips, RGB, panels, pixels, brook trout, FM modulators and a bunch of stuff I don’t understand. Typically, it’s when I find that my phone has anywhere between 43 and 62 tabs open to various forums, vendors, YouTube channels, etc….I just resign myself to being incapable of understanding it and shut it all down. To be clear - it isn’t that this forum and various YouTube channels aren’t helpful and full of useful knowledge, but more so that I am simply dumb. Dang near stupid. Simply, the problem is that my desire for a large and complex light show far exceeds my own and very limited comprehension and ability to produce it. I really don’t think I’d have either the interest or desire to start a small and more easily manageable show, tbh. If I do it, I want it to be awesome. As I am at least now wondering these things in June, and not November, is in and of itself an improvement over previous years, however small. I’ll take even small victories. Is paying someone to basically design your whole setup and guide you through its setup and use a thing that’s available? Any other advice that I should also consider?
