    Not seeing that option in Vixen, can you point it out please?

    I don't think Vixen has the concept of rendering from different views. That isn't going to help here.

    Not seeing that option in Vixen. I have tried reversing every other strand in the controller and in the Vixen mapping which does get all the lights flowing right to left but then all the even rows pixel stakes now are going down instead of up. I have mapped using Vertical Matrix and Icicles with the same result. Even direct mapped them in preview section but it was ignored. I will try manual mapping in setup display and preview to night and see what happens. Unless someone has a better idea?

    It is likely a matter changing the options on the Chase. To chase from left to right, set the Chase Behavior to Each Element Group and then work with the Levels deep option to make it chase each row. Likely a level of 1. You may also need to adjust the Pulse intensity curve to get the tails going the direction you want as well. The direction will change it from left to right or right to left.

    The Spin works the same way.

    So I am happy to report that worked manually reversing each 5 pixel stick on all the even rows. I only did it in Setup Display, not Setup Preview. Problem is I have 250 pixels to do. One other note: it did not take right away. I had to remove the 50/50 pixel zigzag on the E386card, then put it back in before they flowed the correct way.,

    Another observation: I initially tested with a white chasse effect. Everything was fine. Then when I used a set level, one of the pixels on 3 different strands had the wrong color. Going back into Setup Display and setting the RGB assignment did not work. Vixen would loose the color profile as soon as I exited setup. After an hour of trying different things, I had to highlight the pixel and its address, click the left side unpatch, assign the color profile, then re-patch the controller outputs.
