    Hi Guys,

    I have been around for 4 weeks or so now and not posted so I thought I would share my creations so far with you. I have assembled (I use this term roughly as you will see in pictures) a controller based on the Renard software. My plan is to use LEDs for all my new stuff so happy with this so far. I have gone from nothing to a vixen controlled Talking pumpkin in 4 weeks so happy with progress.

    Here is the controller

    And my 1st attempt at some coro

    The plan is to use Halloween as a tester for Christmas, will see how it goes.

    renard is such a easy code to play with, then you can do the dmx firmware afterwards.
    Keep up the great work, an post more great pics
