    Default My house outline - Very much an amateur lol

    Hi Guys,

    So this video shows you what I have for lights on my house. I don't have the knowledge yet for Xlights, but wanted people's thoughts on what "Could" be using what I have. I can attach my xml document later today if anyone has any thoughts on what I could do for a sequence next year as well as xmas this year. My problem is that I am not really creative by nature, not to mention I don't have good models to play with. Very linear which I assume you can't do alot with.

    Any advice ( or other videos to reference ) to make my lights a little more appearing. I don't think I plan on music, but making a sequence from some beats would be cool I think.

    Do you have individual node control? Or are they strips?

    You can do a LOT more than u think if u have individual node control.

    For Halloween I used to do waves of purple and Orange moving across the house in a fairly slow pattern. I did play some music but the lights and music where not in sync. It made a relaxing environment that seemed to go over well with the families.


    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show.

    Watch my videos but just focus on the rooflines. You'll get a lot of ideas just by watching other people's sequences. There are tons 9f different effects you can apply to the straight lines to mix it up.

    You wouldn't happen to be in a sharing mood and willing to potentially let me use one of these sequences and adjust for my layout ?

    I dont mind sharing the files... But, it would honestly cost you 10 times more work to have to deconstuct all my other layers and elements and pick apart the controller scheme, etc. By the time u reconfigure everything, you could've created 4 from scratch. I'll send you one so you can see how they are built if u want tho?

    I do not know how you are controlling your lights, but if it is DMX, you could use LOR and buy the Superstar add-on. It has a tool called Instant sequence that will auto sequence all of your lights for you.
    I am new to pixels and DMX. I have been using LOR since 2007, but I recently started reading up on xLights to try and learn it too.
