I found I had another set of Christmas lights with Easy Pose, but the product “Holiday Decorations” is no longer a stand alone product. It is still offered in the Holiday Havoc Bundle of 22 items and is a DAZ O currently on sale. If you’re a PC Member the price drops to $29.95 and you can drop it a few more with one of the current DAZ O coupons.
I just installed both light sets and the light included in the Holiday Decorations package is much nicer in appearance and has more flexible options in the surfaces tab. The shape is much different too. It has “glow” modeled into each light which can be controlled individually in the surfaces tab or as a group with the included presets. Both sets have individual bulb surfaces for 5 (Yuletide Tree) or 6 (Holiday Decorations) bulbs.
Here is a sample render. Upper string is from the Yuletide Treasure Tree 2011 and the two lower strings are from the Holiday Decorations package. The top and bottom string of light are in the same vertical plane to show the difference in size.
Edit: I fiddled around with the middle string to turn them white in the surfaces tab. I’m sure you can get them to look tanslucent like the default colored set if you knew what all of the sliders do.
