    Default xLights 1 strand change colors from specific pixel # to next

    I have a Tune To XX.X sign, and I want to change the color of each part, I tried setting different strands and each start point, but I cannot figure out how to change the color depending on the strand. The closest I have gotten is the Fill effect, which has the top 1 color and the bottom the 2nd color. But I want The Tune one color, To the second, and XX.X the third. Any tips?

    I could create 3 models and start at the other's end, but I don't want to add 3 models to do 1 model's job.

    I have also figured out how to layer the fill and set the top and bottom halves to their own solid color instead of using it on the whole model, but it's not much better than just letting it blend from one color to the other. I want 3 different colors between pixels 1-53,54-69, and 70-107.

    Submodels are your friend here. There is no support for a tune to sign. With three specific ranges, the submodels would take 5 minutes to setup and you could do exactly what you want and even fancier stuff.
