    The video isn't the best, but it's the best I could manage to get this year. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year :D

    Nice Display again this year Doug. I bet the people of Gladstone were happy to it again.


    What did you use for your two matrix's?


    Cheers,

    Yeah, a lot of people said it was better then last year. Once I sorted out all the bugs of swapping to xlights & using the PI / FPP.

    Top matrix is 34 x 24, 12v 2811 nodes
    Big one is 30 x 150, 12v INK 1003 strip

    The videos do them absolutely no justice at all.

    Everything was in XLights this year. That show took 3 days to put together. I had dance of the sugar plum playing for a week & drove me insane. So made this mix on a Sunday & had it playing by Wednesday.

    This is just our house.

    The BIG arches are 5m diameter (16')

    There is so much power injection. Something I forgot to do was wind a few of the new PSU's up to 12.5v to counteract a bit of voltage loss. Hence why the arches have a bit of flickering. Only realized after I had taken the video.

    Exquisite job again Doug.
    Like your over all design layout but favorite part is still the ingenious use of the steps.
    You use every surface and leave nothing out. ;)

    Thanks, not many people that don't love those steps :)
    Every surface might have something on it but there is always room for more ;)

    That was my favourite part to Bill after the constant troubles that I had for the first 2 weeks.
