    Looks fantastic Keith, megatree is huge!


    Nice animations and layering too! Are you using animated gifs/pngs? Xlights seems to be a bit hit & miss on this function (must be an inconsistent format type thing)

    I don't sleep much. The tree is not my work. It is holiday sequences. The rest is mine. Only 3 pictures outside the tree. The tree uses over 300 pictures. None of the pictures are animated.

    still looks really cool Keith! :)


    So,since you are a big xl contributor... what's the difference between using an animated gif as opposed to a bunch of pictures? I would think an animated gif/png would be far easier to use/reuse in a sequence...

    Not my choice. That part of the sequence I purchased. I write code ok (although dan and Gil may disagree) but my sequencing skills are pretty average.

    That's a big display. Nice. Those giant arches appeared as quite a surprise. What's the thing on the roof? - looks like a giant present bow - looks great

    It is a giant present bow. Low tech. Rope lights and some white fairy lights. Had it 7 or 8 years now. We are known locally as the "bow" house. It runs east/west and north/south looking like a wrapped present.

    Nothing wrong with low tech - looks really good and very unique.

    Awesome

    The bow is a nice touch too - might have to borrow that idea next year:)

    Some is. Some isn't. The tree on the right and all the arches and fence lines are. The house and large tree all run on a Bbb with fpp in bridge mode and a 48 output cape. One f4v2 runs faces and minitrees.
