Hi, I'm new. In Oakland, CA My personal projects are Burning Man focused, but the ideas and knowledge base here are exactly what I was looking for. This year we are running a 20ft diameter UFO that will be 12 feet in the air and driven from below via the chopped front end of a 1995 Toyota Tercel. We have (3000) 5v RGB pixels (WS2811) on the UFO "belly" running as a matrix so crazy kids can dance under it. This is my first large scale lighting project, I apologize in advance for all of the dumb questions I will ask. I'm still playing with control software options, learning about injecting power and reading piles of posts here on on DIYxmas. I have found the Christmas Light subculture to be super helpful and full of crazy smart people. It reminds me of the early days of computers when hackers, makers and DIY user groups pushed it all forward.
