I finally got all my gear from Ray Wu and have been soldering/heat shrinking like made this past week. I had to pack it all up from the hallway to due my daughters birthday party yesterday. This morning I finished all the manual labour and started in LSP. So far, I created a controller for each strand and the output works as expected. The tree specs are as follows: 33 pixels per strand of pixel strip (99 LED's) 5 strands per universe on the J1sys 20 strips all up. They are wired in a up->down->up->down->up pattern, then the start of the next 5 are opposite (I made the mistake of leaving an odd number and starting from the same end, so bunch 2 and 4 where ass-about). Questions: In LSP I built a matrix and plotted my tree on the house and selected the correct pattern formation, however there was nowhere to state that it's only 180 degrees. Should this matter, or am I better off making 20 more fake strings in LSP to fool it into thinking it has 40 strings and is 360 degrees? Will this have an effect on my effects? In LSP I want to use the shifter macro to push an image down the tree, but no matter what I do, it loops that picture for the duration of the effect. I only want it to work once. Any idea's? In LSP roto macro effect, I can't have the image just rotate where it is, it keeps wanting to zoom in/out and/or distort the rotation from a central spot. Anyone have any idea on this? I want to basically run a spiral circle of colours. Just going to create a youtube account in a minute and will upload a small file of what I have achieved today in LSP for some feedback. WIll post back shortly. I will be packing the setup up tomorrow evening and just using the visualizer till November. Spewing I didn't build a 3rd underground level when we built, would've make an excellent workshop.
