    Default Static Pixel effect creation . single strip elements etc .

    Probably one of the more challenging type of effects to create .

    I have found the usage of avi's can simplify the process .

    Angus, you really should try xlights, these kind of effects are rather simple.

    If you are using a matrix to map your props/elements this may make more sense as to how to create these sort of effects .

    This is the final video file of the entire effect .
    I only know how to apply this in HLS , but I am sure there is a way to do it in other sequencers also .

    For any one considering what type of effects for a strip pixel star some visuals for inspiration purposes only .


    I have been testing / creating 100's of custom effects for star specific props and have come to the conclusion that the simplest are the among the best , as in

    easy on the eyes and not to strobish . The simple intensity chase is one my #1 favorites as the pixels remain static .

    The camera cannot catch the full effect , but you will get the gist .
