lol, legacy

as for the x-mas lights, that could be real. it could be something similar to how you do light and music presentations on a stage. but, whatever it is, it's cute

and kschulz, thanks for the link to that software!

I echo that thanks, Kurt - I may try the software, and just viewing the demo by Randy Harris is worth the visit! If you enjoy a close-up view of grizzly bears, catching salmon, cubs playing, etc. plus some award-winning photography (all shots are wonderful, some are truly Art), click on the link to his video -- (you have to agree to download a viewer program from Photodex)

The Christmas lights video may not be real, but it is fun, and I love those "dancing" trees. The music/light synchronization is right on! PanPan - thanks for that link!

OMG, that says this house with the lights is in Mason, Ohio. That's about 4 miles north of my house! I'll check it out and report back on whether its real or photoshopped.

Sorry for the dead link. Fortunately, Racc and Mike found new ones.

So it's real after all, although it could be faked with software like ProShow (thanks for the link Kurt!). Based on Mike's info, I visited Light-O-Rama's site. I estimate Carson Williams' setup at $2,000. He really wanted this!

CJ, the Mike Ridout show is also worth seeing. I thought it was stuck until I pressed his name at the bottom of the intro screen.

Thanks for the new videos Legacy and Mike. I wish I could dance like that sober!

Pierre

Ok, I just returned from a little trip to Mason. I can truthfully say that, unequivocally, undeniably, without even a trace of doubt...it's the real thing! There ain't no photoshoppin' here.

It's actually quite an impressive display. A sign in the front yard tells visitors to "Tune to 96.5 FM". Carson has over 25,000 lights sync'ed to music transmitted to your car radio. The song in the video is actually only one of several he has in the "show", which include Snoopy and the Red Baron, a dancing Frosty the Snowman, and another Trans-Siberian Orchestra tune. Apparently he runs it only from 6:00pm to 10:00pm every night, so as not to aggravate the neighbors. From what I understand, the neighbors are all fine with it. All in all, quite fun to see.

Panpan...

Your link wasn't dead. I got it from the link you originally posted. It was a little unclear on that person's page. I thought it was a broken link at first, too. Then I looked closer at the last line on that page and saw the link. It said to save the file first, but I didn't want to do that. Out of curiosity I clicked on it anyway and it worked. So, I just reposted that last line with the link here in this thread.

Glad it worked for everyone.
