Quote from: e.oelberg on March 01, 2024, 02:07:37 AMI have grouped three matrixes 12 x 60 to form one 36 x 60 matrix.Is there a reason that you are creating this as 3 different models? Just because they might be physically 3 pieces, that doesn't mean that you have to create them as 3 models.

Quote from: e.oelberg on March 01, 2024, 02:07:37 AMI suspect to have made a mistake grouping the modelsThat could be, but like I mentioned, you really don't need to make them separate.

And could'nt select an overlay model in the playlist.
Quote from: clonida on February 29, 2024, 05:09:51 AMSo seems you exceed the 256x256 "max" res that Colorlight seems to support, is this to FFP's credit or just Colorlight false limits?
Can you detail a little bit more about the refresh rate? My understanding is that regarding the fps / rate you send data from FPP to the Colorlight, it's the card responsible for repeating and maintaining a high refresh rate (usually 1920hz) so how exactly the chain can affect to the refresh rate?
Quote from: clonida on February 28, 2024, 11:52:00 AMI am clear that the panels are going to be P4Is there a reason that you want P4 specifically? Unless your audience is going to be closer than 10' you are probably not going to gain any benefit by using a P4
Quote from: clonida on February 28, 2024, 11:52:00 AMI understand that the lower the scan the brighterThe scan rate doesn't typically define the brightness
Quote from: CaptainMurdoch on February 28, 2024, 04:20:15 PMI will let others comment on the max they have driven on a single colorlight, I only have 30 p10 panels connected to mine, so I'm not stressing things.Thank you very much for your detailed explanation which I understand perfectly well but which raises even more doubts
The main thing I will point out is how FPP treats the panels. FPP does its own layout of the panels and pixels. When you setup the Channel Output in FPP, you will tell it where each panel is located in the matrix and what output number and panel number the panel is on the output. FPP handles all orientation and layout of panels and it maps the channel data into the order and layout that the ColorLight card is expecting. Attached is a copy of my layout to show the kinds of things this allows. This is the Advanced panel layout UI, but most of this is supported by the simple UI. I have the 30 panels on 4 outputs, so all outputs do not have the same number of panels. I have some panels upside down and some turned on their side. FPP sees this as a 292x64 "matrix", but there are holes in it because this single ColorLight is actually driving 3 matrices in 3 side-by-side windows. The gaps are the window frames between the windows. I might not use the odd panel layout if I were rebuilding, but it was what was easiest at the time. The main point is to show that the specs on the ColorLight card only apply for how things are physically connected. The panels don't have to be laid out in the manner that the ColorLight expects unless you plan on using a ColorLight sender card to drive the receiver. If FPP is driving the receiver, then you can do all kinds of things.
FPP does the same amount of work whether you use 1 chain of 8 panels or 8 chains of 1 panel each. The network traffic is lower if you use one output because on the network, one row of pixels equates to one (or more for wide displays) network packets. The amount of traffic doesn't matter as much on our size displays. The panel refresh can be quicker with shorter chains, so if your layout allows, I would use more outputs with fewer panels on each.

Build a kit similar to yours (first link). Look over the BOM and it will help. These are P5 not P4 but you can extrapolate.
