    Iam new to here so please stick with me as I try.to explain my plans. Many moons ago I lit up every year but due to medical reasons gave it up for a number of years. I am better now and this is the second year that I have lit up again. I decided to invest in a raspberry pi3 model b and made some arches that I am using non addressable led lights on, the arches work yes but only with solid changing colours. I would like to get the arches chasing and have invested in a set of addressable led strip, can anyone help me to understand how to go about doing this. I also have arduino uno I am still learning.

    It would help if you included your location. There may well be someone local who could show you the ropes.

    Yes we are an entrant in the Christmas Light Spectacular competition https://foto-app.appspot.com/app/foto/item/1683982578586406/5551600772317184 this is my house with the arches I made this year and a led strip just under the guttering. I am wanting to place a strip over the peaks of the roof that will chase as well as matrix screens and a pixel tree, naturally probably wont be able to do all at once but just to understand what is needed in order to be able to achieve that would be great. Where are you located and is it possible to view your working behind the scenes setup? Oh and if anyone would like to vote on our display follow the link above and click on "VOTE"
