2014 - Lights on Orangewood videos
« on: January 09, 2015, 12:15:06 PM »
Videos from 2014, my first year up and running in North Dallas.  All are RGB lights using DIYLA SmartString controllers.  Lights are a combination of TM1804 bullet nodes and Technicolor v2.  Everything is sequenced with Vixen 3.1.

Although I didn't use any Falcon hardware (plan on changing that for next year...) I did flash all of my DIYLA SSCs with the Falcon SSC firmware and it solved the issue I was having.  (Issue: My Technicolor v2 strings were BGR instead of RGB.  I wasn't able to successfully change the color order within the firmware and since I used Vixen 3.1 instead of Xlights there was no easy solution).

If you frequent the DIYLA board you may have already seen my videos posted, but I wanted to come here and give praise/thanks to the Falcon developers for the firmware I used.

Now that's how the piano effect is supposed to work Sean. See that!!!   (I'm just teasing Sean!!!)

great work - how far apart are those pixels? Was that a custom order from Ray, or a lot of splicing yourself?

I did do just my sidewalks last year.  No sequencing to music though or any other elements.

I assume you're referring to the roof lights? There are 12 strands, each strand has 40 nodes with 20cm spacing from node to node and all roof & sidewalk nodes have faucted clear screw-on C9 covers.  Lights were from Ray,  I don't know what typical spacing is, I just specified what I wanted.

That was exactly what I was looking for....I have some crazy ideas to redo my roof next year. one thought (and I'm NOT doing it because of the weight) was to put my big matrix on the roof, the better idea is custom spaced nodes. Never thought of C9s on them though...might help make them last a year or two longer too. hmmmm....back to the drawing board to see what I can dream up. thanks for the info. I may ping Ray in the next week or three and get some estimates from what I want to do.
