    Default Vixen 3 control in real time

    Quick question,
    I haven't used pixels before with Vixen, just Renard controllers and AC lights. Correct me if I am wrong, but if I am editing a sequence and I am hooked up to my controller it will run whatever I have playing in the sequence editor in real time, right? Do pixel controllers work the same way? I'm wondering if I am plugged into my Kulp 16 and I run a sequence while I am editing it, it'll make my pixels run? I am pretty much wondering the easiest set up for testing pixels and patching initially. Do I need to save everything as a sequence and then run it in scheduler or can I just plug and play?

    In Vixen 3, a channel is a channel is a channel. The fact that groups of channels are also known as pixels is just another way to look at channels. Vixen outputs channel data to all enabled controllers when you run a sequence in editing mode. So yes: It will output your data.

    2021 New Tune-to sign. New 40x27 matrix at the house. Retiring the Strip based matrix. Updating some of the old window frames to the new house. Adding two new songs.
    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.
