Hi.
Just new. Joined in december. Disappeared off the face of the planet due to the server crash.

But hoping to get into this enough to build a 15 to 20' high pixel led tree for my first build......

im after a lot of advice on controllers, software, and led's to use ........ and advice on what to expect from the guy in china or wherever he is you all seem to use.

thanks for the awsome guides and stuff on the site. just simply amazing. still reading through everything.

ive done a fair bit with dmx stuff for stage lighting, but never on a scale like this as far as building stuff.

cheers

G'day Mangoat, welcome to ACL. You've come to the right place for information and inspiration. This has been my first year at sequenced lighting and I've really enjoyed the whole learning process. What kind of tree were you thinking? A 2d ray tree? A 360 or 180 deg tree? I made my first 2d ray tree from strip here. It's 12 strips x 3 metres (30 pixel/90 LEDs). I am really happy with the result. My inspiration came from fasteddy (like many others).
As for Ray, I have placed 2 orders with him this year and received both within a week from order and one was a custom order for the 3 metre strip with pigtails soldered on. He has responded to my emails within 48hours and mostly within 24 hours.
There are an amazing amount of talented and friendly people here on ACL to help out. I'm really glad I found this site 12 months ago.
