pixel matrix setup question
« on: September 25, 2017, 01:57:57 PM »
I am doing a 32 high by 70 wide pixel matrix this year by converting last years mega tree.  I will use an F16v3 and expansion board to power the matrix.  The idea was to run 32 strings horizontally for 70 pixels.  I decided recently that based on where the matrix is going I need to run the strings vertically with cabling at the top.  My plan now is use the 32 strings in an down/up zig zag and cut the strings at 64 pixels.  I will then use 6 strings of 96 pixels in a down/up/down configuration to complete the matrix.  Finally my question.  Xlights will not set up in this configuration, if I setup the strings on the Falcon  and just set Xlights to 70 strings of 32 starting at the top left, will this configuration show correctly in Xlights?

Xlights should do an up down configuration you just need to change the right settings.  This is described in the matrix section of the manual
