I bought some small HexaTrees from http://holidaycoro.com for the front yard. I have 7 of these and each has 6 pixels in the base. So I want to do some effects like a chaser or alternating trees with different colors. What it requires is basically treating them like a string of 7 lights instead of 42 pixels. There may be some effects where I would want multiple colors in the same tree but I can use some of the ready-made FastLED patterns for that.
I’m wondering if anyone has or knows of some code I can use to get started? I’m pretty good at tweaking other things to do what I want but starting from scratch is pretty time consuming.
The plan is to control the patterns via a script using Jason Coon’s FastLED Webserver. This way it will look synchronized with the two trees (https://github.com/evilgeniuslabs/tree-v2) I already have.
BTW, the hexatrees looked good on the web site but my wife thinks they look like traffic cones in the yard. Kind of hard to disagree but I spent hours cutting apart the pixels and splicing the wiring. So they’re definitely going to get used this year!
