Hi all First post on here, been looking through a lot of the posts and watched a lot of the videos on YouTube so I am gaining knowledge at a vast rate. Couple of questions, the street where i live goes nuts with lights and each year is getting to a point of "I have more lights than you" scenario. I swear you could see some of them from space they are that bright. I want to go different for next year, I want to make my lights dance, (said in a high school musical way with spirit fingers) Things I need, Raspberry Pi. That seems a given, cool with that Controller, here it gets trickier, probably going to settle on the pixlite 16. This I believe will give me what I need, from what I have worked out it will give me the ability to control 5440 pixels, Enough for me at this stage. Probably going to run pixels, smart ones, not dumb ones, just running lines around the garage, Windows, roofline, and then make 2-3 small trees. Then the software, vixen or X-lights. Both seem straightforward. I am looking at starting most of this in the new year as my job gives me limited time. My main questions are...... Channels, I am assuming theses are pixels, and universes, are the number of outputs on my controller. Thanks for any help in the future, and I hope that I can put on a display that will make everyone jealous. Neil.
