Vertical Matrix - Wiring Order Issue

Recommended Posts

I have a post made up of 4 vertical rows of 30 RGB nodes on each row - starting position is bottom left. When I use the "bars" effect with highlighting, I expect to see a moving row of 4 white lights - all moving down the post together (see attached mp4). Instead, on the real prop itself, I get first row white highlight moving down, second one moving up, third moving down and fourth one moving up. I've attached the appropriate files - what am I doing wrong?

I think I may have found it - in S5, they use "folds" as a term to mean a string folds over into the other direction - but same string.

Folds, that is why I was asking about the controller. An alphapix can do folds but a pixie cannot. You can also program the folds in the alphapix configuration menu.

Just to clarify, there are 2 approaches: you can configure folds (zig-zag) in the controller, or you can configure it in Prop Definition in the Sequencer (but don't do both!). You are correct that the Alphapix supports configuring folds in the controller and the Pixie does not. But with either one, you can use the approach of configuring folds in Prop Definition.

Matt, does this apply in S4 PE or is this a S5 thing only?
