Hi, welcome to ACL. Opinions? Yep, we certainly have them; just ask about 5 volt or 12 volt pixels. That question ranks pretty close to grabbing a tiger by the tail.
Be that as it may, ACL has a number of sections that will help with the animated lighting path you choose. Chat Room for quick questions or conversation, Forums whether a new post or something archived, and the others, Wiki, Media, Display Videos for ideas and solutions to encountered problems.
