How do I? (CUSTOM GROUPING)

Program a string of 128ct rgb nodes so that ch1 turns 1st and every 4th pixel red, ch2 turns same pixels green, ch3 turns same pixels blue, THEN channel 4 turns 2nd pixel and every 4th red, etc and then channel 7 turns 3rd pixel red, etc.   I am trying to do pixel chases of 4 (rgb) channels (12).  Brain is fried.  Thought I had it figured out with groups but I don't think I did it right.  THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Starting to think I can't pull this off.  If so, just please confirm so I can shut off my mind  ;D.  Slowly embracing I have to use 2k channels and program to run some chases over trees that I ran solid last year.

Sam, maybe that could be done with Virtual Strings on a Falcon16v2, but not so sure about Grouping like that on a F16v1. Dave Pitts may be the best resource for that.

I've always done my grouping by custom models in Nutracker and leave my controllers as simple as possible.

This cannot be done in either F16V1 or F16V2. This is a software chase.

Thanks Jon.  Always a few ways to approach things.  Not a huge deal if it can't be done.  Will go live tonight with groups of 4.  Just not the effect I was after. 

I little freaked to go beyond universe 2 (will happen if trees need to be discrete) since the numbers don't click and unsure of controller layout.  I am all F16v1 and 2 hubs/sscs but some BBB boards for next year.  Kinda bizarre to consider every one of my lights might be individually controlled.     Fooling around with some ideas now.
