Hello.  Hope someone can point me in the right direction.  First year running Rgb pixels.  Running display from Pi and Xlights.  Have sequence developed. 

First stumbling block, how to set up the "set up tab" in xlights.  Pi will be using one of the Falcon Pi Hats, two channels.  Pixels are ws2811.  Set Xlights as e3.1 with 4 channels (same output).  No idea if this correct just starting somewhere.  How close did I get.

Next hurtle, FPP. Have get 1.6 installed.  Assuming need to configure FPP to work with the hat.  Is there a video or something I can view to set this up.  Also assume need to define my pixels in FFP.  Video?

Last bump in road, how do I extract my Xlight sequence to my USB memory stick so can run my show from pi.  Really would love a slight nudge toward a video or some document on how to do this.

Any help greatly appreciated.  Glue/paint still wet on my displays.  Ready to light some stuff up.

Ok, making some headway.  This link shows how to convert a Xlights sequence to something FPP can read.  Awsome.  Still don't have a clue how to set up the channels but hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Ok, just read post on image available for FPP 1.8.  Downloaded, setup, able to access FFP via Web access UI.  Able to bring over my sequence from Xlights and set up a FFP sequence (hope that was all there was to it).


So made a little more headway.  Really still confused on how to set the outputs up for running right off the PI?  Anyone done this?

Please delete this post.  Once able to access FFP UI, help section was well very helpful.  Can address my question now more specific in alternate posts.  Thank you.
