    lights and sounds from costco right now... adding LED's and planning a lightorama 8 or 16 channel for next year, adding every year
  1. numbering of pixels

  2. numbering of pixels

    OK, I am making the channels for my 16 strip tree with 6 channell pixel star. I have a 4 output controller for the star from holidaycoro. 3 outputs are used for the pixels when I try to add the dmx device, it starts each set of pixel at 1. where the universes are 1 has 3 layers, one has 2 layers, and one the outer layer of the star... I need to learn how to set the pixels in universe one to get 20 pixels then 30 pixels then 40 pixels... how can I do this?
  3. CCR tree support and mounting?

    I am building a 16 ribbon pixel tree with 6 channel star topper.. all from holidaycoro I have 7 foot eaves or so, with rain gutters. I will be using 1/2" conduit for each ribbon.... But I would love to see how some of you supported the top of your tree/ribbons and then transitioned to the star. as of now, I am planning on building a platform for sand bags with a lateral 2x4 and clips as in the picture...with an upright to support the top and transiion to the star on a piece of black iron pipe.... But I would love to see some more ideas!
  4. lord... just what I need! a NEW program
  5. Interesting. So PE might be the advanced package.... Not something I am gonna pick up this spring and be able to learn, utilize to any great effect by turkey day....
  6. So, I bought a 16 string ribbon tree from Holidaycoro. I will buy some sequences to have a full show this year, but want to make a few as well! I have 32 LOR channells now, running my standard LED setups.... Long term plans include some fascia and window outlines, arches, all smart pixels. What package do I NEED to make these pizels do what I want? Pro gets me pixel editor... but dang... getting up there in $$.. I will spend $ to save time, but not if these features will be way over my head as a noob pixel guy... Love to hear your thoughts
