I have been reading for the past 2 months on and off about DMX, RGB, E1.31, and all that good stuff. I have a basic idea of what I want to do. How to do it is what I am learning. I do not want to ask questions on every step, my goal is to learn, understand, and be self sufficient. Soon I hope to have a diagram of my display laying out what I want and where, how many pixels to be used, and the distances in which it will be located from the controller. My equipment I plan on using will be a dedicated PC, D4 bridge, and the PC12r. I plan on putting: Four 4' white mini Christmas trees lit with 50 pixels each One 7' 5050 strip going up my little mega tree Two 8' belligio poles (light sticks/fire sticks) each with 8' 5050 light strips When I get my diagram drawn up I hope it will make more sense My question is this: as I progress is it ok to check my work here to make sure what I am doing will work before I go ahead and order it?
