    Default First attempt to record a sequence

    Here's my first attempt at capturing my very first sequence.

    Song: I Saw Three Ships - Lindsey Stirling
    Pixels: 357 WS2811 12v pixel bullets from Ray Wu
    Controller: Falcon F16V3
    Sequencer: Falcon Pixel Player on Pi3

    Recorded using:
    Canon 80D
    Tokina 11-20 wide angle lens @ 11mm

    Post-production in KDEnlive.

    The first thing I noticed is that if I just left the camera at its default settings and the lights at normal intensity, the colors completely blew out. So here's two other attempts:

    1. This video was recorded with the lights backed off to 20% brightness, and the camera at whatever exposure it thought was best:
    Lights at 20% Brightness - Camera at Neutral Exposure

    2. This video was recorded with the lights at normal brightness (80%) and the camera set to significantly underexpose the video:
    Lights at Full Brightness - Camera SIGNIFICANTLY Underexposed

    There really is nothing like seeing this in real life though. The brightness fills up the entire yard and illuminates the trees.

    I can't wait to get more pixels!

    looks good the 20% really helps the camera get a good video

    Yes, 20% seems about right. It's nice to be able to actually see the house.

    Thankfully the Falcon Controller made it easy to change this. Mind you I only have two strings right now so anything is easy.
