  • Christmas 2017 countdown has begun. Most people reveal their displays the day after Thanksgiving. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.

numbering of pixels

OK,

 

I am making the channels for my 16 strip tree with 6 channell pixel star.

 

I have a 4 output controller for the star from holidaycoro.  3 outputs are used for the pixels

when I try to add the dmx device, it starts each set of pixel at 1.  where the universes are 1 has 3 layers, one has 2 layers, and one the outer layer of the star...  I need to learn how to set the pixels in universe one to get 20 pixels then 30 pixels then 40 pixels... how can I do this?

This may be late but for reference, in the first universe the start would be 1 for first starting 20 pixels since each pixel is three channels then it would end at 60 the next layer of 30 pixels would then start at 61 and end at 150 the outer layer of 40 would start at 151 and end at 270.
