Hi Everyone,
I'm extremely new to this hobby.
I also made a 16x25 Pixel tree and have 100 WS2811 12v addressable 12mm bullets left over.
Could I use them along with a RPI 4 or Arduino I already have to run some small arches or spiral trees?
What other stuff and software would I need to complete this project
Any assistance with this project would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Kindest regards,

Doug75

You currently dont have a controller for the 16x25 pixel tree? You need a controller for pixel tree, arches and spiral trees? Xlights would be the software of choice by most of here. You can download for free @ xlights.org. Hop into chat and someone will be able to answer your questions.

Thanks uncledan.
I do have an LOR Pixie8 for the pixel tree (16x25)
I just needed a cheap setup to run 100 leftover ws2811 pixels as leaping arches.

Pixie 8 with 800 pixels on xlights. Maybe. But not certainly. The lor protocol is something xlights struggles with one the pixel count gets high. I would test it early before following that advice.
