    Default Anyone have any cool RGB pixel affects for Vixen to share?

    Does anyone have a sequence designed for RGB pixels that contains some cool afftects that I can use for testing/showing off? The length and pixel count isnt important since it's just for testing and I can copy and paste to make it fit my display.
    Here's what I've got so far. Soon I'll have the upper level done as well. It will be somewhere around 500 pixels.

    Renard 64, 3 Ren24's, Ren8
    4 E682 pixel controllers
    2,300 WS2801 pixel nodes
    1200 dumb RGB
    Sequenced using LSP 2.5

    This is quite an old thread. Nate finished outlining his house with pixels and ran several nice shows for Christmas.

    I ended up going with LSP. Here are some of the videos;

    This was asked in an earlier thread started by me, but what was you distance between you e680 and your 2801's. Just interested in a "field test" and what type of cable did you use?

    About 10 feet. I tried with SPT2 cable and had lots of flicker. I then switched to 22?/4 stranded and shilded wire and the problems went away. I think it had more to do with the capacitance or conductance than it did with the shielding though.

    Thank you cool examples. The more I play with LSP so much easier for RGB.
