Hi everyone. I found this board recently and it has been a great source of information for me, particularly the Lighting 101 Manual. I did my first display this past Christmas with 1 LOR 16 channel controller run by a G3-MP3 Director. This year I want to add a pixel mega tree and pixels around the borders of some of my windows. I'm struggling with how I will combine the LOR controller with the pixels which will likely by using the E1.31 format. One question is software, I am using S3 now for the regular lights, but is it easy to do pixel tree effects in another program like Nutcracker and import them back into S3? Do timing marks in a particular sequencing program affect how information gets pasted from another program (e.g. pasting from Nutcracker to S3)? Is Xlights/Nutcracker the best program to use for mega trees? Is there one sequencer which is easiest to combine normal lights with pixels? Does Xlights/Nutcracker handle shapes like a window border easily? On the hardware side, I am assuming I can no longer run the show from my LOR G3-MP3 Director if I add pixels. If I have sequencing LOR and E1.31 formats does that mean I will have a cable for each format coming out of the computer? Is it possible to have one cable coming out of my PC into the LOR controller then daisy chain it to the pixel controllers (e.g. Pixlite 16)? I have seen setups where people run their show with a Raspberry Pi, will that work when the show is in more than 1 format (LOR and E1.31)? Are there any adapters I would need to run the show with LOR and E1.31 formats? I know this is a lot of questions but any help would be greatly appreciated! I want to start getting the pixels and begin sequencing so that I have enough time to get things ready for this year's display. Thank you.
