    I'm looking at transitioning from running my show using LOR software to FPP. However; I really don't want to give up my shimmers and twinkles. So my plan was to write a program that would swap out twinkels and shimmers with their equivalent.


    So what I'm asking for is does anyone know how fast shimmer and twinkle work?
    And for twinkle what is the chance of a channel being on at any given time, and how long do they stay on?

    You still get twinkle and shimmer, just the effects are generated by the computer instead of the controller. With LOR, the PC send a message to the controller saying just "shimmer". With DMX the PC/Pi sends the individual on/off commands. It won't look very different.
