This is trivial to do in xlights. See custom model videos at

I have top view of 3d model - see image 2. I do this in MadMapper without problems and have no idea how to do this in Xlights. How to set animation as background on which I will place pixels that will take colors form places on background I put them (image 2b)?

What is the problem you are seeing? Config appears to match. You attached one strip to each port?
Planning to be there at this point..

Ok so I am having trouble getting xlights config and the F16V3 right. With my 16x 12V WS2811 I know that it should be treated as 100 "pixels" since there are 3 per IC.  I have attached my config screenshots.

I am not seeing reliable Wireless on my BBG (Octo) running the 0620 image.

My Master Pi sees it in multisync "Sometimes" but no HTTP access any more.

If I "pull" the Edimax and reinsert, it reconnects.
Pat the last update fix the Multisync status page

Just a quick Note about the Multisync Status Page.
When you look at Multisync status page on BBG running 1.9 it lists it's Ethernet (hardwired) IP, it, USB IP ( and what looks to be an IPV6 address.
When open the Multisync page and a different BBB unit running regular 1.9 it only shows the Hardwired IP address.

I need to boor up another 1.9 Jessie branch image and see if it is the same.

I'm not sure if that is an issue or not.

I have the controller in and all my WS2811 strips in.  As I understand it these modules are 3 LEDs per "pixel" which is where I get confused on how to address them in xLights/channels.

You count every 3 pysical pixels as one channel and in xlights you count every 3 pixels as one node since it asks for nodes per string.

You mentioned ordering boards back around Jan/Feb for boards that ship in May of this year.   So I'm wondering if you are really asking about V2 or the V3 board.

The V3 board has this feature now.   David is talking about possibly doing an update to the older V2 boards to allow something similar.   If you ordered in Feb and recieved you board now, then I would think you have a V3 board which already does what you are asking.
