  1. They are only on for a short period of time. But I think when I first got them I let them run for a while. I'll drag them out of the garage and try again, but I've been pretty unhappy with them, especially since they cost me around $200.
  2. Sorry, I'll clarify. I'm interested in learning how to create the animation that is projected onto pumpkins to create the animated singing pumpkins effect. Also things like eyes in windows, etc :-)
  3. I have the CDI strobes, bought them about 5 years ago, but they do not go off at different times, they just all blink in the same sequence. Am I doing something wrong?
  4. I haven't been in the forums for several years now. About 6 years ago I started on my quest to create my first Christmas display. Then 6 months later I became pregnant with twins. I managed to get my first display up when I was 12 weeks pregnant, it was a fourth of July display. You can see a video from that display here https://vimeo.com/6253717 (there are others from the show on my vimeo channel) Someone on this forum helped me by sending 4 custom light strands that were made for the top of each pole, they had 6 C7 connections. I never asked this person to make them for me they simply
  5. Anyone want to start a thread her on do it yourself projection animation? I would love to learn!
  6. I have don't stop believing, the glee version. It has two singing faces, but you can easily change it to one. Let me know if you want it.
  7. I'm thankful to be back in the world of animated lighting, after taking a two year hiatus. When I started this journey I had just bought my house and for my first Christmas I did a small display with "Mr. Christmas lights and sounds". It sparked my interest and I found this forum where I learned all I could about sequencing light shows. My first display was a 4th of July show in 2009. I had a BBQ at my house and then brought all my guests out to the front of the house for my first show. It was a proud moment and I real sense of accomplishment. Check out my Vimeo channel videos of a co
  8. Hi all, The strobes went fast. Thanks for your interest.
  9. Anyone interested in buying my CDI C7 Strobes? I purchased them last year and only used them in my 4th of July Show that ran 2 nights. I have 60 available.
  10. That would be awesome! It would definately save us all a lot of time :giggle: I echo what the others have said here. My first sequence took about 15 hours to put together. As time has gone on I've gotten better at it (I've been sequencing for just over a year). You'll find some short cuts as you become more familiar with the software and you find your "Style" of lighting. It now takes me about 8 -10 hours to put a new sequence together. You really need to sit down with the software and program one song to get the full picture of what you're getting yourself into. Choose a short
  11. Doesn't Wow Lights have a Halloween Video contest? You should check out there site.
  12. to make me a Merry Christmas wire frame for mini-lights. I'm looking for something rather large made for mini lights. I'm not planning this for 2009 but rather 2010. I'm not sure how shipping would work, so it may be best if you're in the Los Angeles area. Let me know if you can help me out. Thanks!:santasmileyitty:
  13. So sad. I had hamsters growing up and took the death of them very hard. My best to your son.
  14. CDI. Are there differences between vendors?
  15. Thanks, I'll test them out again today and run them through a few sequences, hopefully it will work better as you said.
  16. They do fire randomly after a few seconds but if I'm turning the channels on and off. I'm assuming that this recharge needs to happen everytime the channel is turned back on? In videos I've seen where strobes are used in a mega tree, they seem to fire randomly right away.
  17. I just got my strobes and have been testing them out. I've noticed that for the first few seconds when they are turned on they all blink at the same time and before going into a random pattern. Is this normal? It's not exactly the look I'm going for. I was planning on using the strobes as simulated fireworks so the program only calls on them for a few seconds each time so I'm not achieving the right affect. Is this how they are supposed to work?
  18. I agree. I purchased the program hoping that the animation would be better and easier, but I went back to using what is built into LOR. I found it easier to add those custom elements.
  19. I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine having a member of my four legged family taken so quickly and so violently. It's just awful. Sending you prayers and good thoughts that your new loyal companions heal and help you heal over the years.
  20. Does anyone know where I can order cheap flood lights online? I've been looking everywhere for these type of flood light fixtures. Thanks!
  21. Hi, I'm looking for someone to make me four 5 socket c9 cords with plugs. I know nothing about making my own cords. I will pay for the materials, your time and the shippings costs. Please send me a PM with a quote. Thanks!
  22. Anyone know when they usually start selling 4th of July decorations in the stores? I'm looking for the red/white/blue mini's and swags but don't want to pay the online prices for them. I'm also looking for rope light decorations such as God Bless the USA signs. I'm hoping that I'll be able to find these things in the stores soon so I can finish up my sequences. Guess I'm just a little anxious.
  23. My vote would be for Celebration and Sweet Caroline
  24. Received my reciever this week and just finished testing it out. It works great! Thanks Glenn!
