I built a Deadmau5 Helmet for halloween and was having a small issue getting my led strips to play nicely. I have a string of 160 or so in the mouth working great just using the FastLED DemoReel. I also have 7-led neopixel “jewels” in each of the eyes.
Is there an easy way to append the DemoReel code to provide some input to the LEDS in the eyes as well?
I tried to define another strip in a similar way but with slightly modified global variable names, but the eye LEDS would turn on for a few seconds, then turn off, then the mouth LEDS would run their DemoReel.
I would appreciate any guidance anyone could provide, I want my helmet to looks it’s best this weekend for halloween!
I am using an Arduino Mega and “neopixels” with the FastLED library 3.1
