    Here is a US flag seq I plan to do some day. the flag pic has the channel assignments on it (its just to look at. download the *.vix to your vixen/seq folder and unzip the marine snthem to your vixen/audio folder and then run the seq.

    enjoy

    If you find it uncomfortable to use something... Try turning them around.

    You might like to sequence this in your Christmas show - although "chipmunks" are in the title, they also refer to squirrels during the song.

    I was also thinking of maybe a patriotic display if time permits. A flag seems to be the most natural theme to use. Regarding the construction of the flag, would you use a blue backlit panel for the upper left area, or just lots of blue LEDs or mini-lights interwoven with the stars?

    I was think of possibly backlighting behind 4mil plastic or something along those lines.

    Well, I final got around to finishing a sequence I started last year for the fourth. Now I just need to get all controls(my 595 and ssrs) in working order and build the actual display. I have attached the sequence for anyone else planning on doing something similar for the 4th. This makes two seq. done.. Hmm... I best get a move on it.

    Enjoy

    Hey Pete, just wondering what you used for your stars? I am trying to figure out a way to build a decent sized flag and was curious on what you used for lights for your stars since you had 1 channel per star.

    I was going to try using 5mm LEDs 8000 mcd, driven directly off my 595. But you could use c7 or c9s if you have the ssrs
