LAYOUT CREATION PART 6: HORIZONTAL MATRIX

SIMPLE TRICKS ON HOW TO BUILD A MATRIX THAT WILL BE PLACED HORIZONTALLY

Follow the processes contained in this video to set up your horizontal matrix model in xLights!

Natively matrices are built horizontally; from left to right in xLights for a reason --- because of the way they are configured; left to right.

In this video, we have highlighted the native matrix configuration of a 16 nodes tall by 50 nodes wide layout. That is, 16 strings of 50 pixels. Typically, the configuration is such that you would  notice pairs of blue and green lines; each segmentation indicating the standard connection to the pixel controller.

A pretty insightful video walk-through that shows you exactly how you can set up your matrices in a very professional manner. In essence, you would have the outputs numbered one, two, three and so on... for the 16 output controller.

Although we have done things a little bit differently here, the overall idea is such that would increase your proficiency a great deal.

Pro Tip: We highly recommend that you visit the Boscoyo studios website and get detailed information of what you need in order to create a superb matrix.
