    These are the lights on the roof:

    With these mounting strips:

    I got Rays latest version of those C9 nodes. I was debating between 4"and 6" spacing and got the 4". I hope I don't regret that because I am shooting for my roof to look like yours, or that's how I see it in my mind. I guess if I need 6" I will have several to sell on here.

    This is the best picture I could find. You can KIND of see the PVC clips I used from holidaycoro. To do the same, you'd need to drill a hole in your brick for these clips to attach to.

    I really doubt going MORE dense is going to ever be a bad decision, lol -- it will just end up looking better than mine! :-P

    Can't wait to see it!

    My worry is that it will look like a single line instead of separate bulbs. Sometime in the next week and a half I'm going to put some in the Boscoyo strips and mount to pvc. Set them up in front of the garage and walk out past the street and take some videos. Time will tell.

    You just have more options now - you can always sequence it to skip every other one.

    Great job! Really nicely sequenced. Sequencing takes such a long time to do well... One of the best shows I've seen.

    Really awesome job. It looks like you're using Xlights. How are you doing the count down color fill at the beginning on the mega tree?

    Pretty simple. Top layer was the white text - then just did an "ON" effect on the tree with different colors, overlapped them, and used an "in" and "out" transition with a "clock" transition.

    See:

    this is awesome, do you mind me asking how you made the dancing trolls on the tree and the uptown funk guy? I have a 16 wide by 50 high pixel tree and want to start doing graphics like that, thanks!!
