    I started in 2010, and have added a little bit each year. After adding LOR elements my first few years, I've been (slowly) making my way into the world of pixels!

  1. This is one of our new songs for 2014. This year's new features were our RGB Flood Lights, and the RGB Icicle Tubes. The rest of the videos you can catch on our website: www.LukesLightsNH.com.
  2. Hey all! So I'm looking at some RGB Floods for this year. I've seen so many different types of flood lights, from DIY to kits to fully assembled. I've also seen them placed in so many different areas to adequately light a house. For the floods, I've definitely decided I wanted to go the DIY way. DIY always seems to be the most fun too . But that's as much as I know. I've attached some pictures so you guys can get a feel of my house [don't worry, we're powerwashing the house soon aha ]. The main part is a 2-story house, with 1-story pieces on both the left and right. What I'm looking
  3. Earlier this year I gave building my own strobe cords with SPT-2 wire a try. Unfortunately, my patience level wore thin as some of the sockets wouldn't work, yet the strobe lights would. So, I decided to purchase a string of 25 C9 Incandescent lights and screw in the strobe lights. Now, I purchased 10 strobes for this year. I've been putting one strobe in every third socket (yes, I understand there are extras). The other sockets get the bulb taken out just enough so it doesn't light, then it's electrical taped. After I finished this, I plugged in the lights only to see that 2 out of th
  4. To be honest, I'm not quite sure. I just wanted to through to idea out to see what would happen. There would probably have to be some dialogue, with the witch, and Mickey destroying evil and everything. I got the soundtrack too. When I listen to it though, it would take some editing to get the plot line without seeing the show in person before. So I was thinking stick to the CD, but cutting out some sections and replacing them with others. Different moods of music would also have to be added so everyone knows things are heating up. So in all, it would be a combination of dialogue and mo
  5. So this is an idea, please feel free to comment on it. So I've had the wheels in my head cranking for a while about a possible 4th of July show. I was thinking creatively, and asked myself, what if a light show was created with a plot line? I was thinking something like Fantasmic. For those who don't know, it's a Disney Production where Mickey's dreams start out good, but turn to evil. He has to overcome them in the end. Now, I know several just-dialogue parts would have to be cut out, and other mini-songs would have to be put in. I also know there'd have to be an explanation of the plo
  6. I happened to be by Kmart today, and they still had some lights in stock. I ended up getting $185 worth of Christmas stuff for under $20 -- almost everything Christmas related was 90% off!! I'm shocked that they still had stuff in stock.
  7. Thanks for that advice. I've watched them, but I was just wondering if anyone had a cheaper way of doing it besides coughing up $11+ for a power supply.
  8. Thanks for the answer. One other question, I want to power some RGB stuff with these power supplies: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-100V-240V-Converter-Adapter-DC-5V-2A-Power-Supply-US-/360290888878?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53e302acae#ht_825wt_1396. My question is, has anybody found a way on how to waterproofed these? Thank again.
  9. So I'm doing my revisions for my 2012 display. I know I want to add RGB floods for sure, because I like the look of those a lot better than the incandescent ones. This may be a dumb question, but can you use Seasonal Entertainment floods (Rainbow Floods: http://www.seasonalentertainmentllc.com/rainbowfloodlight.htm) with this: http://www.holidaycoro.com/product-p/26.htm? And is this RGB Flex Strip: http://www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/701799/209843764-288949036/5m-flexible-LED-Strip-5050-SMD-30LEDs-m-waterproof-by-epoxy-coating-RGB-color-DC12V-input.html a three channel (non pixel) stri
  10. Paul, Do the strobe lights include a C9 socket?
  11. The PVC enclosures look like they could be smart string controllers, from http://www.diylightanimation.com/. I'm not 100% sure though.
  12. I have 6 sequences posted on vimeo, but will share my two favorites here. New this year is the spinner. Thanks for watching!

  14. So I go open my sequences today, for a final once-over, before the show begins. I open them, and it gives me an error message: --------------------------- Error Loading Sequence --------------------------- Error loading sequence. Detail: Unexpected extra save info version --------------------------- This happens in all, except one of my sequences. Not only does this not let me see them, they don't load in a show. Please help! Thanks.
