    Hi guys, Im trying to draw up my spiral trees in the visualiser.
    not sure what Im doing wrong. Ive tried using Ztree, normal tree etc

    Ive got 1 strip (WS2811's), total 63 Pixels with 189 channels.

    any ideas how I could draw this baby up.

    Channel 1 starts at the bottom also working its way to the top.
    Cheers
    Phil

    All i have ever done is just use a straight line for a spiral tree or used the free drawing tool to draw a few zig zag lines. But i find the straigt line seemed to work well for me.
    Remember that the visualizer is only used to map the location of your lights so it really doesnt matter if its not drawn exactly like a spiral tree as the end result will still work great

    Agree with Fasteddy. I made the mistake of using the z tree tool. Just do a straight line starting at the bottom so the base of the tree will be seen as the start and top as the finish.
