Hi all,

This is my first attempt at putting up lights this year so please go easy for the dumb question.

What I'm trying to achieve is having 4 esp8266's running wled for a pixel tree that's 20 strands 3.5m high with 70 pixels per strand. when I go into xlights and go to the tree model there is only room for one controller? how to I set up over multiple controllers?

This might be the totally incorrect way to do it, but you may need to make your own tree layout using the single line/poly line whatever it's called, having each strand start at its designated controller.
Also good to see someone else in Christchurch attempting a pixel mega tree :D

You could check the individual start channels check box and define the start channels for each of the 4x controllers there I think
