Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Spiral Mega Tree Sequences For 16Ch

Recommended Posts

Ok Gang, this is my first year at attempting a spiral. It will be 16 channels of red/green super strings, around 13' tall ( 16' with hook head(s) and Star), with a 6' base. I am asking for any help with some sequences you may have or have had shared with you. Not over concerned with song choices, just some basics. I have been given quite a few sample animations (.las) to look at. My email is [email protected]. Thanks for any help you can provide. Also if you know of any links to other sites that share sequences, I am all ears/eyes. With my work schedule this year, I don't get a lot of free time to work on setup and sequencing.

Thanks again.

Steve

I did a mega tree with a spiral tree together last year and will be doing the same this year. If I can figure out how to send you my sequences, I will send them. I have 12 channels of mega tree and 4 channels of spiral tree overlay. If you can send me info on how to email the sequences I will try to help you out. This was my first year of animated lights and I went complex for a newbie. I liked it myself. There is a video on Youtube under Nails Family Christmas.

Just go to your Light-O-Rama\Sequences folder and and attach the files to your email. If you have a bunch, you can copy them to a separate folder, then zip it and send it that way.

Very cool. Yes, just set up an email, attach the files, then send. Unless you edited any audio files, just send the .lms files. Most likely I already have the music, if not I can purchase it.

Thanks,

Steve

Cool. I will try to get those to you today. I have a seven song rotation from last year. I will try to send the ones that looked the best. I used a couple of sequences from LOR's website, but the others were my own programming. The preprogrammed ones were little strange since I only had 12 channels for the vertical strands. The other four channels were used for the spiral portion due to a limited number of controllers. It took me a few tries to get myu mind wrapped around the layout, but I was pleased - for my first time ever.

3 sequences on their way. I sent the ones that I arranged because they were set up with the proper amount of channels in mind. The one that you see on Youtubewas designed for a 16 channel mega tree. The only problem I encountered was that 4 of my 16 channels were the spiral that you are looking for. If youhave any questions please feel free to hit me up here or shoot me an email.

Got them. Thanks. Will be pulling all resources over next week to get my show together, as I still havent put a single thing out yet. All set ready to go, just no time. This whole spiral thing is taking a lot of my time, trying to figure it all out so I can do it right the first go round.

Could you send me the same, this will be my first year  and I have 3 controllers to work with but I am hoping to just use 16 ch for the tree if possible and I am using a 30 or 40 foot telephone pole so I'll have to figure out some way to attach the strings, Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
