    Great show!

    Are you using Vixen or Xlights? Curious as to how you get the small white chases starting around 4:16 in spooky scary skeletons? I assume just a single strand chase and using having separate submodels for the horizontals and verticals?

    Definitely an A+ for reusability over Christmas.

    Did you have a good year? We had about 300 trick-or-treaters; 500 people in all. A lot of transplants came in from poorer neighborhoods--which is okay; that's what this is all about. What I did not expect were all the teenagers, half-blinded from their halloween masks, walking all over my yard to pose for selfies. Big difference between passersby on foot vs. drive-by's. But my lights are all ok. Now we enter denial week. i.e. oh! Halloween passed already? We didn't notice.

    I currently use Vixen for my sequences. Those are done with the chase effect, but the direction curve is broken up into 4 steps, so it gives it that flickery-jittery look. I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like.

    Had a really good year! Just over 200 trick-or-treaters, which is great for us.

    Awesome thanks! Iíll dig in xlights to see if they have a direction curve I can adjust. I know I did it for the spiral effect so Iím sure something can be done.

    Iíve seen that effect a lot and love it!
