    It would be great to see video's of both!

    I definitely will. I'm deployed right now, but getting ready to get things going upon my return. I have to come back here in Oct, so I hope to get all of my lights installed before I leave, that way I can create sequences while I'm here. I have my computer set to download my Vixen profile every day from my NAS, so I can upload anything new to my NAS and it will be running in the next show.

    This was a great idea. However I'm sitting in front of them now, and the lights are in groups of 3. There's no way to do every other individual one. (that I know of)

    I knew that buying them so it's not a surprise. I tried to take a video just now but there's something that's 'lost in translation'. The lights look awesome in person, but kinda so-so on my phone's video (galaxy S7). I'm pretty excited about adding these pex arches this year. The diffused look is sweet.

    Actually my wrong assumption that you had individually addressable pixels , has been simplified . The fact that you have 20 pixels per/m
    is even easier to simulate 10 pixels /m in your instance.
    You simply sequence every other pixel only
    I have not seen 20 pixel per/m strip , would be great to see your video !

    If you have 3:1 strips then you have three tri-color LEDs per pixel. At 10 pixels (thirty tri-color LEDs) per meter, a typical strip will have 50 pixels. There are some strips that have 20 pixels (60 tri-color LEDs) per meter, but they are seen much less often.
