The annual pixel order came in and I can build some props! Starting off with some modular matrix panels.
Well, the little spikey ball has forced a postponement of Christmas Expo for one year. So what do we do now?

I noticed problems with the P10 panels at the end of last year and decided to upgrade to P5 panels. Simple swap of the hardware, but the software on the BeagleBone Black gave me some trouble.
Well, I finally got around to dealing with this prop that was still hanging around. I changed the design a little.
Should I start selling this jig? I think it’s pretty awesome! I built it to help me assemble a 512-pixel, ChromaMesh 3″ CLEAR matrix from Boscoyo Studio.
I finally got around to putting the Chroma Poles together I picked up at Christmas Expo and why I gave them a new name.
This episode is a bit of a poo-poo platter of updates, but includes a demo of bypassing a controller’s power distribution and why you might want to plus an explanation of Falcon Port Sharing on both the F16V3 and F48.

I replaced the horizontal strip holding pixels over my garage with Boscoyo ChromaTrim V3. Pretty good stuff! Plus some other updates.
Happy Father’s Day! This is a short tutorial about a powerful feature in xLights called Value Curves. It extends what you can do with normal effects. I used them a lot last year.

My online course for RGB Pixel beginners: http://bit.ly/udemy-basics-coupon-16
I’ve been working on an online course for RGB pixels and it’s finally out! Here’s what it’s about and why I did it.
The course is hosted on Udemy. http://bit.ly/udemy-basics-coupon
The course is designed to take someone new to pixels through everything they need to know to get a show up and running. It covers both hardware and software. There’s even a section on sequencing using xLights that even people running shows might want to check out. If you take the course and like it, please leave a good review with a couple of sentences about how it helped you or why you liked it. Reviews really help a new course get noticed. If you see something that needs changing, please let me know that too.
