Anyone have a Halloween sequence for singing faces on a matrix that you are willing to share?

Thanks,

Brian

Joel has done thriller pgo file. The latest 3.4.15 release of xlights restores the auto faces on a megatree or matrix. I will be giving two tutorials next week. One on papagayo and the other on scheduling a show in xlights or in fpp

Thanks Sean, I didn't realize that xlights papagayo plugin worked on a matrix. I look forward to the tutorials.

Vixen 3.1 supports singing faces on a matrix, attached is a link to some tutorial videos on how to use it.

If you are not new to Vixen 3.1 and want a crash course, you could narrow your viewing the following items.

10:04 - Creating a Lipsync Map

Video #2
8:32 - Importing Papagayo Files

Video #4
14:38 - New Feature - Pixel Matrix / Mega Tree Mapping
20:10 - Import/Export of Images into Map Matrix Editor

Importing of pgo files supported along with custom bitmap matrix images.

As per usual lately, I am moving from one fire to the next. The band has their trunk or treat after practice tomorrow, not next week like I was thinking. I was sitting down tonight to try my hand at making some singing skulls or pumpkins on the matrix using the latest xlights/nutcracker. Looks like it may take longer than I have. Does anyone have a Halloween .pgo or .xml file that they are willing to share?

Thanks in advance,
Brian
