I'm trying to learn sequencing, and playing around with the various sequencing applications. I've heard good things about HLS and it's support for RGB pixels. Can someone tell me how to draw a RGB Pixel strip like this (http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/5m-led-digital-strip-DC5V-input-WS2801IC-256-scale-32pcs-IC-and-32pcs-5050-SMD-RGB/701799_465132154.html)? I watched a tutorial on HLS and in their he drew a few lines to represent a string of lights, but with a Pixel strip each light is addressable. I'll have a 5 meter long strip running up the left and right side of my gable. Each meter contains 32 pixels, or 160 pixels per gable. Is there a way in HLS to draw a line and then convert that line into 160 pixels?

Please watch the Video on Segments.

A Segment allows you to treat any number of channels/Pixels as a single channel in the editor.

Using a Segment - you can chase intensity as well as color across your gable.

Here is a thread to the video.
