    Disco Party lights (Increasing ROI for WAF)

    Thanks for the suggestions. The P10 will go down well... and naturally the kids would love the butterfly effect. haha. Maybe I'm reaching too far, but I'd love to have the lights react to the sound of the music, and not run a sequence, but maybe looping some random sequences will be a lot...

    Disco Party lights (Increasing ROI for WAF)

    The wife has suggested we have a disco party for our kids’ parties. She’s excited about that, and also about the possibility of using the pixels from Christmas. Here’s a great chance to buy more things for the disco party, that, wow what a coincidence, I can use at Christmas. How have others...

    Melbourne/Vic Melbourne Mini 2020 Interest thread

    A topic I’d like to hear more on, is how others attach lights/props to their house or trees. Not just the fixings, but designing props for ease of installation. I’d also like to see how certain sequencing effects were done. I’ve seen some good effects, but couldn’t work out how they were done.

    Gutter Clips

    Woah! I hadn’t thought of that. That’s perfect! Is that cable ties onto conduit?

    Mini pyramid trees

    Awesome job that they can store easily. That’s part of the challenge in where to store it for 10 months of the year.

    Finally.. it's done for 2019

    Thanks for the feedback. My wife also said the ‘tune to ‘ sign needed to be bigger. (Assuming pre-approval for more P10 panels). The editing issues I had were when I wanted to move a bunch of effects one beat marker to the right/left. If the next beat marker was slightly bigger or smaller...

    Finally.. it's done for 2019

    So doing a few years with static lights and finally committing to getting a show up this year, I finally made it. Building the props during the year, and creating rough lengths of cable gave me a good head start to test most of it in the garage before it went outside. Having the props I could...

    Melb SE displays

    No worries @djgra79, I’m putting together the videos. Mine’s nothing compared to what you saw! This year I went north, next year I’ll have to make multiple trips to see all the displays on this side of town.

    Pixel stays on after schedule ends

    Even after all the careful planning, I still managed to stuff up the pixel counts on a few occasions. Turning on each element / model by itself is a great way to check. Glad it was such a simple fix for what seemed like a weird issue.

    BBB or Raspberry Pi

    This was my first year with pixels and I used a rPi3 with FPP, it also controlled my P10’s, and had audio into my FM transmitter. I already had a rPi to tinker with ((50-60$) so it came in handy, and since I needed something to drive the panels, I figured I might as well use it to run the show...

    Impressed with displays in Melbourne’s East

    I took the kids out the other night to see Christmas displays based on the map here. Thanks to @Croydon Lights, @buzzdude & @battle79 for their displays. Kids loved them. There was quite the line of cars to see @battle79’s display It was great to see other displays to get more ideas for...

    FPP output different from xLights ?

    Can you put FPP in Bridge mode and use xLights to output to lights to see if you get the same issues? Then you can narrow it down if it's misconfigured in xLights or FPP. I had similar issues with elements that had the incorrect pixel count, or duplicate channel numbers. After updating the...
