    Hello Everyone,


    First post...


    I came across this site as I was researching purchasing some "dumb" rope lights. I knew absolutely nothing about lighting or lighting control but as I learned more and more, my interest level grew. I think I am hooked.


    I finally took the plunge. I just ordered the Advatech PixLite 16 E1.31 Controller (16 separate outputs with up to 5440 pixels or 16320 channels). In addition, I ordered 20 of Ray Wu's 30 pixel/m WS2812B RGP strips and a few RGB Strings and some other odds and ends from DIY LED Express.


    I am hoping to have something done by Christmas. I have been playing around with LightShop Pro and I realize how difficulty it can be to put together a good sequence. My expectations are not too high for this year since I am a complete nube. I have a new found respect for what some of you have been able to accomplish. There is some pretty amazing stuff out there.


    I love the friendly atmosphere and the fact that everyone is so willing to help and mentor.


    Hope to I will have some tales to share.


    Cheers!


    Tom


    P.S. Anyone from Georgia (USA) on this forum?
