    Re: online xlights class this friday nightthe 10th of june 8pm eastern standard time

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for taking the time to help us.

    I have two areas I would love to know more about.

    1. Setting up various controllers, with correct Universe according to lights. At the moment I have a separate Universe appointed to each element. I am wasting a lot of available space.

    2. How to add a video in sync to a sequence.

    Thanks.

    Binny.

    Keith thanks for offering to do this it will be nice to have a class at a time that we can participate in.


    I would like to do some advanced uses of the superstar type effects eg: Morph,Galaxy etc with layering.


    Looking at the responses so far I think it might be an idea to run a poll to gauge peoples leave of experience with Xlights, you could have something along these lines
    Never use it
    Tried but couldn't figure it out
    Have a basic idea
    Used it last year
    Fully confident with it.


    It might help to give you an idea of the direction to head with this first class. I did say first class as I hope you will continue with more in the future as long as you don't slow down on writing code :D
    What ever subject you decide to cover I will be joining in as you can always learn something.

    G'day


    I'd like to be on that class.


    Would be good to learn anything about xlights but especially ways of sequencing the 2 wire & 3 wire store bought light sets.


    Cheers

    All good, using zoom.us has the capability to record and link will be given out Friday night.

    I Like all the above suggestions regarding xlights . Maybe it could start off with the basics and grow from there. I would also like to learn about Converting our files and others to xlights. Maybe also about networking would be helpful. Oh I have so many questions. Thank you Keith
