I am pleased that you fixed the fan effect. I used it once in my show this year. This year, I created an animation of the fan effect in After Effects, and put that on my whole house model, instead of using the XLights fan effect.
The fan effect still leaves holes when it is very thin, but when...
I don't think it is possible unless you can turn the PE file into an LMS.
Why do you want to move from LOR to XLights? I would see that as going backwards.
I was going to, but then I can sequence better in LOR (I am used to it, it feels more accurate, and I can easily hand-make effects, copy...
It was done by a professional A/V company, who probably used time code and something like a GrandMA 2 console or MagicQ.
Programming like that takes ages. Effects are generated automatically and the exact time for each cue to start is set, then several systems which use time code...
I would buy the programmer.
The only annoying thing is you need to have XLR ends on them, or use an adapter for the three pin waterproof connector, but it is still nice to have these.
Physical order in the chain has no influence on start address.
They all receive the same data.
You need to...
I have tried that.
I will record a slightly better video in a minute, with data from DA_E1.31.
The Pi is running OLA.
I have considered changing it to FPP, in either bridge or remote mode, but FPP uses OLA to output the pixel data.
If you think it could be the problem, though, I can try...
I used a WS2801DC15 from AAH to control my store brought lights for 2015, and I will buy another to use for 2016.
They are really food.
Very few controllers can go up to 30 volts.
I used a 30 volt power supply. It was probably a little too much. One string failed just before Christmas, and...
