    Hi All.


    Just wanted to share a couple of quick clips of my singing faces that are almost finished. I'm at the stage where I can sequence in confidence and then mount the front pieces on.
    Big thanks to Fing & Logan for the inspo, and also to Keith for his assistance in getting the models setup correctly within xlights :)

    They look great. Would make a nice surprise for an audience when they see just two apparent plank pieces of coro suddenly come to life as singing faces. Nice job.

    SO of course they look great in the mancave, but don't work properly in the yard :/


    2nd face (rudolph) will not light up. Setup is: controller > santa > rudolph. Only PI is before each face.
    Testing in da_e1.31 will not light up rudolph at all. So I change cables to be: controller > rudolph.
    This time it lights up as full red, green blue, but when placed on white it gets all weird (see video below)
    I added a 2nd PI at the end to see if it made any difference, it didn't.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
