Very new in this Christmas light business. I did make a LOR 16 channel tree last Christmas. I am very interested in designing with LED's but not necessarily just using the pre made smart LED strings. Would like to design more free form light displays. If anyone has been to Disneyland here in California during the last year ( or may visit this year) you will be treated to an amazing parade called Paint the Night parade where the LED is used in amazing ways. Anyway need a lot of help with the technology.
