    One matrix yes, ( think of that as a "page" to draw on ).. However what you can do is place multiple "objects" on the page. Then using the mapping function when you create a patch, you can assign various different layers simulateouly to various different parts of the matrix.. Ie, you can have bouncing metaballs on one bit, and radar stripes on another bit..

    I'm doing exactly this, with my setup, the pixels on teh shed (effectively a 112 x 21 grid ) as well as teh comet star, and the pixel carpets are all running together.
