    Re: Sydney Mini Interest

    Hi guys, new to the forum and received an invite to join from the LOR forum.

    I see the agenda and it looks very interesting to me as it is pretty new to me. When is the Sydney mini and is it too late to register?

    Ill be bringing down a few things for people to look at. Some of Ray wu's 2801 pixels, his RGB strings with no chip, the Stellascapes E16 (The older version which I won at the Melbourne mini -- grin), plus a few odds and ends.

    Re: Sydney Mini Interest

    A question to those coming - in regards to Vixen (and LSP for the presenter there), what would you like to see shown. I will be using Vixen 2.1, with some discussion on 2.5 (maybe a demo there too). I thought:
    New sequence, with or without profiles
    Setting channel colors (Demo of a couple of ways)
    Basic chases, and chases from clipboard (Demo of various types)
    Quick & nasty intensity change & where you might use it
    Different paste types, how and where you might use them
    RGB calculator (a handy little item really)
    waveform addin - why & where to use (with demo)
    timing - 25, 50 or 100msec, why, limits etc. (With fade demo to show the reason)


    What else would you like to see?

    Dave,
    All of the above sounds good.

    Hopefully we will get a meaningful LSP demo this time.

    Cheers

    A couple of us will be packing digital video cameras, so someone will have footage, but it wont be streamed due to no internet connection there

    Re: Sydney Mini Interest


    Im trying to finalise things for the Sydney Mini and are putting out another request for anyone wishing to attend to put their name down, the more the merrier. The day will be a great day and there will be lots of information available so if you plan on attending could you please message me so we can ensure that all are well catered for

    There will be demos and I will have a good range of RGB samples on display sent from Ray Wu. There will be 2 door prizes, 1 copy of LOR V2 and a 20 module 3 x 5050 RGB string with 3 channel DMX controller will be given away

    $15 will cover the cost of the day including morning tea, lunch, coffee and tea and drinks

    We have ensured that we have given plenty of time for discussion as many people have said that nothing beats the 1 on 1 conversations, so this is your chance to pick the brains directly of others in the hobby. It will definetly be worth the effort attending as im sure you will all walk away knowing something new.

    Kool-Lights has also offered for those wanting to attend a barbeque dinner at his place after the mini, so please show your interest if your wanting to attend.

    Further information including map can be found at the first post

    Below is the location and proposed agenda for the day.

    When: 24th of July 9.00am
    Where: Upper Hawkesbury Power Boat Club, Windsor in the upstairs hall

    Re: Sydney Mini Interest

    Hey,
    Those attending the mini, I am wanting to beg, borrow, steal or buy a single 40 pin Propeller chip.
    If none turn up, no biggie as I will order some more on the next Mouser order.

    Another door prize thanks to RPM, will be a Rev 2 USB DMX Dongle PCB, complete with SMT FDTI already mounted and a pre-programed ATMega.
    Thanks to go to RPM for making this happen.
