    Is LSP still going?

    Thanks guys, figured as much. I've started having a bit of a play with xlights. Hopefully should be able to jog my memory and work through the xlights learning curce to get something up and going in the next 3 weeks. ... yikes! only 3 weeks left until Dec!!

    Is LSP still going?

    Hey everyone.. My lights have mostly stayed dormant over the last few years, but wanted to get something up this year. Left the run a bit late, but was hoping to get some basic sequences up and going. I have a few LSP shows in the archives, but in finding, downloading, installing and activating...

    Help please with LSP and E1.31

    Someone responded to my post on the LSP forums. I needed to dig through the menus to find the "Optimize Entire Sequence" option. Once I ran that my lights started working.

    Help please with LSP and E1.31

    Yep. Saved, exited LSP, restarted, reloaded, no go. Also created new sequence, play, stop, save, exit, restart, load, play. Nothing :( I'm hoping there's something silly that I've overlooked [edit] And also hoping that Minleon have got people working on weekends :) Although considering it...

    Help please with LSP and E1.31

    Good point. I started again, but this time just created a 15 channel E1.31 (5 x RGB channels). Same deal. Controller test works fine, but when I hit play, nothing.

    Help please with LSP and E1.31

    So this year is my first attempt at pixels after being limited to LOR previously. I've got a box full of Ray Wu pixels and a couple of ECG-P12Rs and just purchased LSP (Oops.. bought the Intro version instead of Basic, but have upgraded and waiting on my upgrade license code). In the meantime...

    Flat LED strip for wire frames?

    OK, so I found these: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/IP68-DC12V-input-12mm-through-hole-LED-channel-letter-RGB-color-100pcs-a-string/701799_522236867.html I assume I should be able to cut up into lengths as necessary for my designs, then with some skillful application of 0-12V...

    Flat LED strip for wire frames?

    So many options... Static colour LED rope light White (or warm white) LED rope and painted RGB pixels Dumb strings To go the dumb string route... I like the ease of the LED modules over bastardising big-w type light strings. There are a lot of dumb LED module light strips, but all the LED...

    Flat LED strip for wire frames?

    I realise that it can't be bent sideways.. so if I were to use it, the sides of the strip instead of the front will be showing outwards. Just from the photos of rolls I've seen of the strip with silicon casing, it seems that it is still quite effective from the side. So the question I'm...

    Flat LED strip for wire frames?

    Similar to another thread in this forum, I have a handful of old wireframe models with 240V rope light - most of which is in dire need of replacement. I currently have about 10m of My-T-Brite white LED rope, so was contemplating trying to find a translucent paint that would work on that...

    Any interest in a module tree frame?

    The main objectives are to undercut the cost of a PVC tree, and also to have it readily disassembled for off season storage. Unless someone has a better source for PVC than I can find, a PVC tree can get quite pricey...

    Any interest in a module tree frame?

    Here is a wireframe sketch of my design. So what will be manufactured is all the corner connectors for the base, for the mid-point support and optional cross bracing, plus the top cone to hold it all together. In the attached sketch, there is a second set of horizontal bars right near the top...

    Any interest in a module tree frame?

    Hi all, I am currently in discussion with a plastics fabricator about manufacturing a modular mini/maxi tree system. It will consist basically of the corner pieces required to assemble a tree from 10mm rods (eg plastic, wooden dowel, aluminium tubing etc). It would have the corner pieces...
