    Default First Xmas lighty thing

    I've ordered 150 bullet pixel string, planning on building small grid to display some sequences, using espixelstick and xlights.

    Should I go with 12x12 leaving six out, or 10x15?
    Also, what spacing between pixels would be a good compromise between size and resolution?

    Thanks in advance,

    For resolution you will require another 2073450 bullet pixels
    10 x 15 will look better than 12 x 12 imho 1-1.5 for semi sharp image and 3" max for bold-broad image/
    If you have access to 1/2 x 1/2 wire you could experiment to find what suits you best .

    In xlights you can design your prop before actually building it to see what it will look like. Id give that a try first.

    I've done that, but without having actual LEDs to set out to see in real life, it's hard to know if the spacing will be ok for real
