    Default 2010 4th of July Show

    For those who are interested, my 2010 4th of July show has been posted to YouTube...

    http://www.youtube.com/dononeil

    All sequenced with Vixen 2.5, using various DMX, Elexol Ethernet controller and a custom fireworks launcher board I built. Thanks again to Jonathan for the Elexol EtherI/O plugin!!

    BTW....

    I seem to have found a bug with 2.5... my audio track, which is 26 mintues long would cause Vixen to crash when I tried to enable the visualizer... sure would have been a WHOLE lot easier to sequence if I could see the audio track!

    Interesting, I have been using the visualizer a lot in 2.5 and have not had any issues with it.

    Great show, I would love to build a launcher I know it is like saying
    Voldemort' s name but still would be fun. I still get traffic down my street so no way to close that off. Anyway good stuff look great.

    I think it has to do with the length of the audio... it was 26 minutes.

    Can you check to see if you get a crash with that long of audio?

    The launcher can be used to light regular fireworks, not just the aerial kind... it uses the nichrome igniters available online that clip over any fuse.
