    Default virtual matrix is this possible yet

    Im switched to projector mapping and making lights on the house is a pain frame by frame. Is the virtual matrix set up yet to do multiple matrices? It would be great not to just throw a big blob of lights and to make just strips of 1 lights running down the left side of house and so on.

    this has been done. its on my to-do for 2020. i am not versed enough to give you the guidance you seek, however, the FPP facebook group has guy that are not only running the setup with projectors but a couple are running VM on flat screen TVs. you should join the group if you are aren't already a member

    I replied on the FalconChristmas site, but wanted to mention it here also. You want the new Virtual Display channel output in FPP which takes the model and pixel info from xLights and displays a preview on the HDMI output on the Pi.

    again i am still researching, but i don't think it will replace the the software used for projector mapping that allows you to key in on specific tracing of a house outline or part of house. i believe it will take the projected image as the rectangle/square and you can identify the matrix LxW. but that matrix will fit the projected spot on the wall like in a movie theater.

    no i took my image from my map and drew strings on it and hit export preview and it works . it just doesn't do exact sizing which would help tremendously. A 1920x1080 which is pi hdmi output would work flawlessly. im experimenting with brightness and other things now. Didn't know this feature existed till today. now just asking for size output option.
