I’ve got 5 strips of 60 pixels arranged vertically around my Christmas tree, each on their own data pin, running on an Uno using the setup from the Multiple Controllers example using an offset. No complaints really, but I thought maybe the patterns and gradients might looks better if the order of the pixels were mapped differently.
Instead of vertically, 1 strip to the next, I thought it might look better if I were to order them horizontally, so the array would be like [Strip1LED0, Strip2LED0…Strip1LED1, Strip2LED1…] etc… (does that make sense).
I tried writing a FOR statement to map them like that, but I’m pretty sure my syntax is wonky because as soon as I try to compile, I get out of memory errors. I’d like to store this layout in addition to the vertical layout so I can change up patterns and such. Maybe this is an XY Grid thing? I dunno. Please send suggestions :).
