new XmasCard series of animations from Lilia
« on: December 16, 2017, 03:42:09 PM »
New sequences (animations) from Lilia. A few weeks ago Lilia got on a kick to create small , 30 second animations. She calls them Christmas Cards. We use some of these between our songs. Most are 30 seconds long and are animations, so no music. Some of these are quite complex like XmasCard11-Fireworks. That animation sequence has 4 l layers on the whole house and 52 layers on the matrix. There are no image files in these sequences (no png,gif,jpg's). All sequences are created just out of the available effects in xLights.

Each sequence in the XmasCard series might use these models: Garage Matrix 64x96, Megatree 24x50, Matrix 12x94
If all three are used, Lilia adjusted sizes of effects to optimize the lower resolution models. If you do not see effects on a model in the video, then that model is empty. Most cards have all 3 models.
There are 24 XmasCards. You can see the videos in this Vimeo album:

You can find them on Lilia's store :

I know we will use the fireworks one for new years.
