    Great job! You should be paid to do that.

    Wow that's a lot of stuff to manage. I remember looking at your website a couple years ago and I don't remember the mega trees being RGB. That's gotta be a huge amount of channels now. I'm curious what type of rgb strings did you pick for those and what software are you using to run it all.

    Ok cool. That's pretty close to what I'm doing except mines small scale. You might also consider the P12S cards from J1SYS....they have 2 DMX output channels and 12 universe outputs. I use the DMX outputs of the P12 to run my old LOR controllers (5 CCRs and 3x 16 channel controllers).

    Looks like you could run that show with the Falcon Pi Player if you wanted. I tested the FPP last year the last week in December and I'm planning to use it full time this year.

    I like watching the install videos and seeing everyone's techniques for setup. Looks like you have it done to a fine art.
