Hi everyone. I’ve got a bunch of WS2811 LEDs running fine as RGB, and bought a second bunch that work fine as GRB. Is there an easy way to use them together in one string?

I believe you can use this sort of setup to do that. Set the correct color order on each addLeds line.

Another option is to use a subroutine that swaps the color order around for the pixels in one of the strings before updating the display.

Something like:

  1. fill the entire strip with whatever routine you’re running.
  2. run subroutine to swap color order on part of strip.
  3. call FastLED.show to update the display.

@dave_brooks i had the same issue for my panel I used a routine to swap the colors and it works really fine.
