    Hey gang. Talking to Sean Meighan this eve. He suggested I post here, to see if what I want to accomplish is possible.

    I'm going to RGB this year for the Christmas show. Got everything setup from Holiday Coro. It is basically tested and ready to go plug and play.

    I'm using 24 5m RGB strips, that have 150 individual controlled pixels.

    I have some sequences now that are 24x50 pixels. I would like to expand those pixels to fill my entire 150pix strip.

    Use the existing sequence layout, to convert to my PixLite 16 setup.

    Sean, suggested I could do this using grouping w/in the PixLite16.

    Again, my setup is a 24x150, the sequences are 24x50(folded) so really the sequence set up is for 24x25

    Could I use grouping to help my situation.

    The only other idea I came up with is to take each pixel effect row. copy/paste that 6 times to stretch to the bottom of the strip of 150 pixels. IE the 1 pixel would be down the column 6 times.

    Lot of work. even possible that way as well?

    Any insight appreciated folks. Hope you can give some good advice/ideas. IF the grouping thing will work, make my situation a lot easier.

    Thank You for your valuable time.

    Best,
    David

    Hi David,


    Currently there is no "grouping" ability on the PixLite controllers. it's not something we have had much demand for and because of that we don't have any plans to implement it anytime soon.


    If you want to replicate the existing 25 pixels you will just need to do it in the sequencer. Not sure what sequencer you are using, but I have done this before quite easily in LOR by simply highlighting a row and then using copy and paste.
