    Looks great Dr! I like the animations.
    Do you have a thread or more info on what your display is made from (lights, controllers etc used?) I'm looking to have a similar 2D tree & coro stars.

    This was only my second year so I don't have a lot, but as far as controllers go, here is what I used:
    E682 for pixel control of the Ray Tree (used 12 of the 16 outputs)
    2 X 27 channel DMX controllers which I used for the coro stars
    E1.31 bridge to tie things together
    Pixel extender that runs off bridge ran the 64 pixels for the coro canes (FASTEDDY's design, Big thanks for that EDDY!)
    16 Channel LOR controller that runs the talking tree (AC rope lights).
    REN32 and 2 DirkCheap SSR's that run the 5 mini trees.
    As you can tell, I have lots of extra capacity which I plan on filling out next year :D
    I'll dig up some pics of the 12 strip tree and repost how I made mine.

    Here is a template I followed to make the Coro stars. You will be able to get 8 stars out of a sheet of 4' X 8' coroplast.

    Looks good. Look forward to seeing what you come up with in 2015.
    Suggestion, maybe some strobes might look nice. :D

    Ya know......A little Birdie told me this very thing! hahaha :D
    I haven't started building my 1st batch yet as I am still waiting on a bottle of silicone conformal coating I ordered from Amazon back in November......(can't seem to find any anywhere)
    I say 1st batch as I plan on buying more if Alan has a group buy this year. The more the better....
