    Hi guys
    Glad I found this forum. I am tired of the old string lights and want to take my display to the next level. Information I have read on here so far is awesome and I cant wait to start learning more about programming and setting up displays.

    Hope you all had a good xmas!

    Ben

    Hi Ben, welcome to ACL!
    The 101 manual linked above is the best starting point for getting into pixel lighting. Once you understand the fundamentals, then its just a matter of multiplying it out for a larger scale.
    Jump into Chat if you need any quick answers, or on Friday evenings there is always the online Zoom sessions.
