    Default Newbie continued (question on pixels per port) falcon

    I have yet to purchase any equipment and took up the task of trying to manage the programing aspect first.
    I gave vixen a go and then went to xlights and seemed to have just stuck with it for no other reason than I just kept going with it.
    I have some basic strands and a tree.
    My question would be for the custom model (headbanging snowman, credit to slayer bob, I made a custom pixel model. whether it works out or not is up in the air) This model has 468 pixels(nodes) and I was wondering how I would wire it from the controller?
    I will be purchasing a falcon v3 16 for the show. I just wanted to get an idea of how many pixels out of one port on the controller. I think it mentions 1000 or so but is that 1 node/pixel or 3 true pixels(1000/3)
    other info is 5 strands of 50 going across eaves, 16 strands of 50 for 180 degree tree. Two 5x20 big window shutters. Four 5x15 or so mini shutters.

    The Falcon v2 will handle 680 pixels, 4 full universes, per output or 2040 channels (680x3), the v3 is suppose to be able to handle 1020 Pixels, 6 universes or 3060 channels (I think that was the # given). And that is just the # that it can control, you will have to do proper power injection for those long pixel runs.

    That is correvt , 680 pixels per port on v2, 1024 pixels per port on the v3. Triple the numbers to get channels per port.

    Thanks for the help. At least I know I can continue building the virtual display and worry about the physical later.
