Here is my first show with XLights. It's a very simple animation because I was fighting many gremlins trying to put it all together on a tight budget, and only started in mid-November.
There's a sequence of 8...
First time ever using an animation/sequencing software for leds for holiday light shows.
I got Xlights working with FPP on a Pi Zero, and an ESPixelStick!
Many more to come I hope
I am new to PC-based holiday light shows. In the past 4 years I learned Arduino and put up some simple sequenced shows (animations only) using ~10x ESP8266 modules as receivers/controllers and a ESP32 as a broadcaster (over WIFI/UDP) to all the ESP8266s. I programmed the shows in...
I need some help please!!!
Last night I was testing out my two controllers (Falcon 16v3 and PixLite 16 MK-II) using xlights test function on the individual ports and things were going great lights were flashing and chasing. Then during a test of chase lights it froze and then the...
In a long conversation with a friend of mine about a thread I posted in January I still haven't come up with a solution.
This is about using transistor boards I created last year to drive dumb strings...
Another quick question in regards to Channels that flow across Ports. I've got my F16v3 (Awesome piece of kit too!!) and I've got 6 Mini Trees (100Nodes per tree) they start on Port 2 - Universe 3 - Channel 1021 and finish on Port 3 - Universe 6 - Channel 2820. So the first two...
With the new Shader effect on Xlights a few of us thought we need location to share these.
So if you would like to share your presets on the shader effect please post a link to its download here
If you share a preset, it has to include all the images and video. You aren't actually packaging a...
Hi, Just going through Xlights Setup for my F16v3 (Thanks Daryl for sending it so quickly!), So I've watched a number of Videos for setting up the Falcon, and they seem to vary from Number of Channels per Universe from 510 to 512. So I'm wondering which one should I use? I've set up 32 Universe...
Are there any means to stream music for a show either locally or via a web page to a spectator's mobile phone?
I'm reluctant to install any booming speakers out of respect for my neighbours, but something more personal like a small mobile device seems suitable.
Help needed please
I have been doing Xmas lights now for three year using LOR setup and Pixel lights, and now moving forward would like to use a P10 matrix in my display. I have purchased a BeagelBone Black, Octoscroller and 4 x 32 x 16 P10 panels. I have worked out how to install Falcon Player...
As many of you are aware I have been doing shows for 9+ years now. Going through transitions from Wowlights, LOR to Xlights and LED's. I like the hobby and love to sequence and build props that can move around without Power Injection.
This year, like others I submitted the greatest...
I have recently changed from Vixen to X-Lights, on Vixen i created a custom two light layered set of candy canes (25 up, 25 down, per cane) but now moving to X-Lights I can't seem to work out how to do the same thing on here, as they only allow one layer when I have attempted to set...
I thought this would be good place for everyone to share Sub-model settings items.
a screen grab of your setup of the sub-model would be great and the name of it.
example is lawrencesdrivelights
Boscoyo candy cane
Here's a free xlights sequence, new for 2018. Alvin and the Chipmunks singing The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late).
A video of this sequence can be seen here:
The sequence is posted to the upload directory of the xlights google share drive here...
Presented by CrazyCatLady at the 2018 Adelaide Mini. A presentation and discussion for where you might find third-party xLights sequences (paid/free) and some ideas for how learn and use them to enhance your own sequences.
While it looks great in videos we know there are going to be issues with the new 3D mode in xLights and we need some help finding them.
The xLights development team (and particularly Gil Jones) is pleased to invite suitably experienced users to participate in the xLights 3D Beta program.

Hi Platinum Members! I have finished xLights Show Layout Part 2. Brace yourself - This video is just over an hour and has a lot of content but don't worry. I had a lot of coffee. There will be a Part 3 to complete the series.
If you are not a member already and would like to try out the...
Every friday night from about 7pm Sydney time there is an excellent voice/video chat over on Zoom. Topics include help with xlights, general setup, sourcing items to use in your display, and pretty much anything that people wish to chat about.
