Please move to appropriate forum if needed! Please excuse the fact that I am posting this in both the LightShow Pro Forum and the LOR SS Forum! Please don't flame me, just trying to figure out which software is going to work better for me. I am a newbie to LSP and LOR but not a newbie to low voltage wiring. Have done LOTS of alarm systems, computer networks, Security Video, etc. Equipment I will be using (some purchased already - some not): Lights- 5 meter waterproof smd strips with 5050 RGB LED - 30 LED/M with 30 WS2811 Chips/M - 5 volt - Qty = 12 (The infamous 12 string tree) - Channels/strip= 450 Pixels/strip=150 total channels=5400 total pixels=1800 5 meter waterproof smd strips with 5050 RGB LED - 60 LED/M Dumb lights - 12 volt - Qty = 9 (gutter lights) - Channels = 27 DMX 100 waterproof 5050 RGB LEDs on wire with WS2811 Chips on each LED - 5 or 12 volt - Qty = 5 (Star & snowman) - Channels/string= 300 Pixels/string=100 total channels=1500 total pixels=500 Lights - Grand Total Pixels = 2300 Grand Total channels = 6900 + 27 DMX ( this is not accounting for the face of the snowman which I am still working out - I am thinking led matrix... LOL) Hardware- Dedicated NIC card in PC (not used for anything else but lights) for E1.31 network 8 port 10/100 Network Switch for E1.31 network J1SYS ECG-P12R Pixel Controller - 2040 Pixels / 6120 channels J1SYS ECG-P2 or get another J1SYS ECG-P12R J1SYS ECG-D2 - E1.31 to DMX Bridge Probably get one of those cheap 27 channel DMX contollers for the dumb lights as they are not very critical SO!!!!! ------ Here is my Question! Which software is better to use?! I like the SS part of LOR but I understand there may be some limitations with the addressable lights I am using. Those limitations being (1) - SS only supports 50 pixels per string and my strings are 150 pixels; and (2) SS only supports 3600 channels (although there is talk of going to 7200 this year). Even at 7200 channels , that leaves me 300 channels (or 100 rgb leds) left! I don't know the support LSP has for mapping/sequencing RGB leds. Maybe someone can enlighten me!
