Each Showstopper sequence includes a free Mapping Worksheet. At first glance, you may think "What am I supposed to do with this thing?". We try to answer that question for you in this blog entry.

Using Your New Sequence

You just purchased and downloaded a new XLights sequence from this website. Now what? Let us help you through the process of mapping your new sequence to your display.
Getting Your Group On
Posted by Michael Stoffregen on 3/21/2018 to Sequencing Insights
Most of the XLights sequences on this website extensively use the Group function in XLights. Because effects can be displayed on individual models and to groups of models, how you group your models can affect how your effects are displayed. If you are using a Showstopper Sequence, you will want to have an analog to the groupings used in the song. To help you do that, I wanted to share how I group my display elements.
It Took Me Eighteen Years to Build This Website

Our journey into extreme Christmas lighting began in the year 2000 when we first decorated our new home. Over the years, we have built our display and our local following. In 2016, we made the jump from incandescent and LED lights to RGB pixels. While our home is unique, it's the lighting sequencing that accompanies the songs that makes our home a Christmas tradition for families in our area. We are happy and very proud to be able to offer our sequences to everyone who enjoys the lighting hobby through our new website.
