Some suggestions for an agenda

Brian wrote:
- If enough people have the falcon16, perhaps David can talk about setup etc.
- Swap meet if people have stuff to sell or trade.
- Show and tell. I thought this was one of the best parts down in the COS as well as the recent academy in TX.
- setting up rgb / universes to work in LOR3
- how Sean ran show only using nutcracker
- Basics of using vixen 3. Someone in the metro used it exclusively, although I don't remember who.
mms wrote:
A demo of the Falcon Pi Player may be neat.
I'd like to see a demo of Vixen 3 and/or HLS.
Maybe a show and tell new show elements.
sean wrote:
- i will demonstrate how to share nutcracker sequences. ill bring 20 already done and share them
- will bring my 20x120 flex strips and set them up to demo xlights
Greg write:
- I have a lot of 5 meter WS2811 strips 12VDC still brand new in the bags not opened that I want to sell from Ray Wu.  They are just a few     weeks old.
- I also would like to set up a 'swap meet' of Christmas light items that we all could buy/sell/trade. Bring all your unused or un-needed christmas light stuff and let's see if we can trade.
-I'm currently needing 5V WS2811 strips as my requirements for my megatree changed in mid build.



What is everyone bringing?

I will bring my laptop and xlights
pi player => FPD => (2) Falcon-16 baords => 32 strings of lights
20x120 flex 1809 strips mounted to 1/2" metal emt. I will lay them out on the floor and make a grid display
Dave Pitts 7' Candle made out of coro
Coro Star, 60 nodes of rgb inside
Maybe, I will bring my 9' (really 8' 10") Nutcracker
My 12' spider for Halloween

sean

Thanks all

Sean,

I can do a short version of the COS LightsUp presentation, focusing on whats out there and what the differences are, and how to connect it all together.

I plan on bringing my controller 'ABC Block Boxes', my PVC Roof Hangers, my Nylon strips for mega tree, and a few items for the trade. of course several types of controllers, laptop, power supplies and extension cords.


I know at the COS meeting some people wanted to have a breakout session on the LOR Visualizer and how to set up rgb pixels in LOR.  If we do smaller groups I would be glad to demo that as well.

Sorry, I'm not efficient with Vixen or HLS, I only know the basics.

I had a great time yesterday.  It was good seeing familiar faces and meeting new people interested in this hobby.  A special thanks to Brian for getting such a wonderful venue.

The presentations by Sean, David, and Kevin were informative as well as looking at the display elements brought by others to show.
