To use this CPC MegaPack with our RGBPlus Sequences (Available October 2022), the Pixie8 controller in this package must be connected to the AuxA network on your computer or Net 2 of your N2-G4 or N4-G4 Showtime Director. You must be using 5.6.8 or higher in order to use RGBPlus Sequences with a computer.
When viewing the Mini Tree from the back, the Pixel Path "star" (for "start") should be at the bottom right of the prop, with the pixel path continuing up and down the tree until it continues into the star and reaches the "square" for "stop." When viewing the Mini Trees as the audience, the first tree should be on the left.
When viewing the arch from the back, the first pixel should be on the right and the 25th pixel should end on the left. If viewing the prop from the front (no visible wires), the first pixel of each arch should start on the left. When viewing the display as the audience, the first of the 8 arches should be on the left and the last arch should be on the right.
The first node of each set of 5 pixels in a pixel stake should start at the bottom of the pixel stake, and the 5th node should end at the top. When creating your 4 rows of 10 pixel stakes, the first stake in each group of 10 should be on the left side of the row when viewing from the audience vantage point. Row 1 should be closest to your audience, and Row 4 should be farthest from your audience.
