I as starting to look into lasers. Has anybody locally worked with DMX or lasers? S3 is primarily our goal to learn and master. Looking forward to learning about all the ins and outs of S3. --Greg in Highlands Ranch.

Greg, I use DMX, but not via lor s3.

The main thing with s3 is better support for rgb and the channel groups and better hardware support.

I love the groups. I put over 4300 channels into one screen using the groups and sub groups .

I used xlights to playback the lor sequences.

You could add lasers (DMX based) and just add a DMX dongle to your setup.

The lynx DMX dongle is about $75 and an easy kit to build and works with lor s3.

Just another bump as the time is drawing near. I have heard from about 15 people so far, with the farthest being in Nebraska. We would love to have anyone and hope to have several things to offer. So far we will have a sequencing session with Vixen, a discussion on setting up a DMX and / or Pixelnet universe, a presentation on the Nutcraker software, a time for showing off if you want to bring an item to setup, and a trade show to get rid of all those lights and stuff you aren't using. We plan on starting about 0930 in Parker, CO.

PM or email for more details,

Brian

Greetings everyone. I hope everyone is still planning on coming to the CO Mini at my home located at 10741 San Juan Court, Parker, CO 80138 this Saturday. Here is a suggested schedule:

900 am - meet and greet

1000 am - Creating a sequence with Vixen by Tim Thompson

1130 am - lunch (order pizza?)

1200 pm - DMX & Pixelnet Universes with Gary

130 pm - Nutcracker with Sean Meighan

300 pm - show off (bring anything you want show off or demo for others)

400 pm - trade show (bring your unwanted items to sell or trade)

I will have a couple of laptops for us to use, at least one projector, some LOR controllers with usb dongle, some Lynx controllers with usb dongle, some smart strings with controllers, and lots of extension cords. If someone has an LCD projector, please bring it.

I have LOR2 software, downloaded Vixen 2.1 and 3.0 beta (I will try to install before Saturday), and XLights.

I will have some coffee and soda available, if you need something special better bring it along with something to snack on. My wife will be making some Christmas Holly. I thought we could order pizza for lunch to make it easy.

Things to bring include: a laptop if you want to follow along and build a sequence, a fold up chair as I only have seating for about 14 without using the floor, stuff to barter or sell, your top 2 decorating tips to share with the group.

Just some thoughts, nothing too concrete that way we can go where the day leads us.

Brian

PM or email if you need more info.

We had a pretty good turn out. 10 to 15 If I recall correctly. I would certainly like to have another one or two somewhere in the state next year. There is so much knowledge to share, it makes life a little easier when someone has already been there and done that. I would be up for hosting another, but would certainly drive somewhere if it would get more folks involved.

Haven't been on here in months ... finally thought to check in tonight

How did the CO Mini go? (never saw finalized plans as I was expecting something on the mailing list...but that appears to be dead now LOL)
