    Hello Darylc,

    At the Sydney mini , you demonstrated a Bart Simpson video clip running on the P10 panels via the BBBFP/octoscroller.

    What did you use to generate that ie did you use xLights and if so what options ?
    Within xLights, as far as I know, one way to do this is to take an MP4 video , run the ffmpeg utility to resize and create a number of jpgs and then insert into the picture effect. Was that what you did or is there another option.

    this may well be a use case for Vixen3 as you can direct import a movie into a nutcracker effect and it handles the slicing into images for you

    Thanks Daryl,


    Now that I have my multi synch working , and that took a fair bit of my last few days, i can press on and experiment with more stuff on the panels.


    Thanks phil for your help whilst the others were at the expo. I tried so many different attributes and config and network changes .......


    Am going to document and post my entire setup and config this week.


    Yes xl has a number of very nifty things that when I first started , transitioning from LSP, I just shook my head in amazement .
