    Default Looking for "You make it feel like Christmas" sequence

    Yeah, it's an older song. I've searched the forum and have not been able to locate the sequence, in fact not much on the song at all. I'm looking for the singing tree/bulb sequence for this song if anyone cares to share.

    Thanks

    It won't get you the whole sequence but something I do to get Timing Files for singing Elements is as follows.
    This web site will give you a xLights or x.timing file when you input the lyrics and the audio file.
    Download lyrics from interweb (or copy and paste) lots to find on a simple search.
    I always get my audio from Amazon music.
    Open xLights, make new sequence and
    Import the file into xlights Timing bar and render it. (Right click in the timing area and select from menu)
    Export the Timing track and save in a file.
    Open Vixen3 make a new sequence, import the timing track in marks collection and GO.
    The whole thing only takes minutes and may need a few tweaks here and there but it is Really close.

    The Xlights Google drive has it there as well.

    It is from the 2021 Xlights Around the World. Really well done in my opinion, I downloaded it and mapped it to my house and really had to do little tinkering. Some of the free sequences take me a little time to tweak and change to the house, but this one not so much.

    Thanks for the input. However, I can't use these files. I'm a person of modest income (retired) and I haven't upgraded to the latest in pixels, I still use string LED light strings and run my show using Vixen3, guess I need to learn how to operate xLights. So, if anyone has this sequence with the "face" already sequenced in "analog" lights and will to share I would appreciate it.

    I haven't done it so take this with a grain of salt... the faces are not really dependent on pixels. Get the lyric track imported and map your face to the phonemes. You will get the right effect without pixels.

    My singing trees are AC strangs, -2 of them.
    I also have 3 singing bulbs that are Pixels.
    I guess you don't need xLights. The site only exports xLights Timing files.
    You can import those timing files into Vixen3 in the Marks collection area.
    Lyric Timing files can be used for 8channel singing trees, or 2000 pixel Mega tree.
    That is all addressed in the sequencer when you put down a Lip sink effect
    on a 8 channel tree or 144 pixel bulb.

    But this is just for the singing trees, you will still have to sequence the rest of you display.
    It's a BIG time saver.
    I'll be on my computer Sunday after Church if you need more help, If you want to try it out.

    I really appreciate all the help and inputs. This is my first time doing lipsync and most of what I have seen and read seems to point to pixels, so this is something new that I'm trying. I've put the Vixen video on "loop" as I'm going through the process of sequencing the song. One thing I did not see in the tutorial was how to import the "lyric track," is this the same as the audio track?

    Rayhjr I may have to take you up on that offer once I get in from church.

    Thanks again for all the help.

    Audio usually would refer to adding in a .mp3 or such.

    The lyric tracks are a type of timing mark. Rayhjr had the import instructions in an earlier post. Hope he can help you tomorrow. If not, post again and someone will point you in the right direction.

    The import of the lyric track is separate from the audio. It is in the Mark collection pane under the import folder icon. When you import the track, you will get a series of Mark collections that should seem familiar if you have watched the other videos. Another option is to import from the singing faces project. The song you are looking for is there and you can get the tracks imported without hunting down the file. See the following link to the Import section on importing from a file or the singing faces project.

    https://www.vixenlights.com/docs/usa...s/#mark-import

    Note: In some cases you may need to tweak on them or they may include many tracks for songs that have more complex vocal tracks. But it will get you to a very workable place to start with.

    Here is the section on the Lipsync effect in the documentation for completeness.
