I am still a newbie at all this and have been doing a lot of research and playing around with xlights. I am building a mega tree and based on feedback in this forum I have changed the specs from a 360 degree 48 strip 50 pixel per strip with 2 inch spacing to a 180 degree 24 strip 150 pixels per strip with 1 inch spacing tree. This will allow me to build my own xlights sequences but I really also want to be able to play purchased antimated sequences. By animated sequences I mean like cartoon sequences with a music track (i.e. like a grinch or Charlie Brown sequence for example). My question is how do you position the purchased sequence on the tree in the correct place. For example assume a 360 degree tree with 48 strips. The starting pixel is the bottom left pixel which is the back of the tree. If the sequence is a 16 string sequence you would want the sequence to show on string 16 thru 32 in order to be front and center on the tree. How is this accomplished?
