    Well this year almost didnt happen. As many know I have been MIA most of the later part of this year working out of town 4 days a week. I'm still not sure how I got it all put up but some how we pulled it off and the lights turned out pretty good. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Top notch!! I have to ask...vixen, nutcracker or other sequencing tool - what did you use to create these? I'm so impressed by the quality of the sequencing. I have an impressive display but my lack of talent or taking the time to tighten up from just using random effects in nutcracker make my display embarrassing in comparison. http://m.youtube.com/user/theaussierosie is where I post my embarrassing videos so you can see what I mean. I'll have to search for more of your loss Andy and see how you got to where you are. Well done.

    [SIZE=78%]Sorry I'm just now getting around to replying. I use LOR as my main sequencer. However I do several different things with several programs. For example, I use nutcracker for my text on the matrix and a few things on the arches and house. I use superstar for the house a lot and superstar for the mega pixel tree. Most of the AC lights have all been done manually in LOR over the years and I just continue to tweak them year after year. I have 3 different visualizations that I use for superstar. One for the house, one for the yard and AC lights, and one for the pixel tree. I did some stuff a few years ago in LSP. Basically I use everything and pull it all together in LOR. When sequencing pixels the best advice I can give is to not overthink it. Know what effect you are looking to do then screw it up and come up with new effects you never in thought about. Try not to get caught up in the channels and making each channel do what you want vs making the whole display do what you want. Sequencing pixels is just a lot of chases and copy paste. As long as it's to the beat it will look good.[/SIZE] :D



    Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

    I second Andy's reply as I do a lot of the same. As an LOR user, I am using 2 different visualizers, xlights and superstar to do pixels and a lot of old stuff from years past that just gets migrated in as I know it works for the AC channels and RGB stuff.


    I really appreciate how Andy has helped me get to were I am with some of his tutorial videos.
    With Andy and Shell and rest of the ACL forums and chat group I have come along way and I am now helping to pass this along to others who are were I was a few years back.
