    Cool you are both using HLS...I've been running my show with LOR but this year I added a 12 ribbon tree but I didn't use CCR's...it's all DIY with china led strips and a J1SYS P12R. I started getting frustrated with LOR when I branched outside their hardware. I've actually been watching some of the HLS training videos the past couple days so I might be trying to use it for next year. I like a lot of the concepts I'm seeing in the videos. Right now I'm stuck trying to figure out if there's a way to draw my 12 ribbon tree in the preview without drawing each string manually. So far I figured out how to draw a 360 degree tree but not a 2 dimensional tree like mine.

    Here's a couple videos I've processed so far for this year. Both these songs I paid for the Superstar sequence and then I sequenced my arches. The rest of the yard was done very quickly since this was all last minute sequencing. There is a little bit of lag I've noticed...especially after I added the Coro Canes to the display. I had to introduce a router into the E1.31 network to split the line going to the ribbon tree to also goto the candy canes. It was an older router being used as a switch. I bought a new switch this morning so I hope that helps out. Otherwise it might be my old laptop I use to run the show...it's still Vista era. I'm going to try to switch to using a Raspberry Pi to run the show if I can sort it all out.

    Are the arches CCRs? Your show is very cool. I like it. If you have any questions about HLS let me know. Maybe we can all get together and brainstorm for 2014.

    CopperCreek; Very nice show! I think I might learn a lot from you, but if I can help with HLS I will try. Again Great Show!

    Yes the 4 arches and the circle prop are CCR's. When I first started all I knew about was LOR products. So I got 5 CCR's a couple years ago during one of the sales. When I started wanting a 12 ribbon tree it seemed crazy to pay $200+ for each ribbon not to mention the 12 control boxes with power supplies and daisy chained network cabling to run it. I stumbled onto the auschristmaslighting guys and learned everything I needed for a DIY tree there and that's where I copied the coro cane idea.
