  Merging shows
Posted by: Harrisonrobson - 09-12-2018, 08:16 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)


Is there a process to follow to be able to merge multiple .sho files into one show?

I purchased 2 Christmas packs but I can’t figure out how to get them playing one after the other seamlessly.

  Pixel Layout
Posted by: steve1200 - 09-12-2018, 03:13 PM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

I am trying to setup a pixel wall on my display I have 400 pixels
organised as follows
Output one is a 50 pixel post
Output two is a 50 pixel post
Output three is lines one and two of the wall 100 pixels
output Four is third line 50 pixels
Output Five is lines four 5 and six

all of the pixels are working and the reason they are wired like this is I am building as I go along.

I am trying to create a wall so I can make images, sweep colours and text.
I have created a visualisation file for just the pixels.
the problem I have is the wall is treated as a long string - a sweep goes from pixel 1 to 300 in a single line.

anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong ?

  Christmas Video
Posted by: sandy123 - 05-12-2018, 05:54 PM - Forum: General - Replies (3)


For Chevychase (and anybody else interested). Hope this helps with your issue on your thread

The two Stars at the front (beginning of video) are made of RGB Strips and controlled by a 3 channel controller on 'standalone mode. Powered by 12v DC 6 Amp supply.
The snowman, two large bushes, arch and five rose bushes are LED strings controlled by  2 x 8 Channel controllers which are then controlled from an SD Card Controller (in master mode). about 1800 LEDs in total. Powered from (regulated) 24v DC supply (with adjustable voltage). Roses are 60LED strings and Large bushes are 200 LED strings, so voltage adjusted to strike a balance between 200 and 60 LED strings brightness. Using unregulated supply for this would no doubt burn out, or shorten the life of the 60 LED strings. SD card controller fed from 12v supply used for stars.
Lights in windows, above garage doors etc. and some in back garden (towards end of video) are fed from 24v transformer (unregulated). Very fast changing of circuits controlled from my own controllers, but current is mainly constant and using about 4 amps. More or less constant load, so the unregulated 24v is good enough.
