 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hey guys...

I'm a total newbie here.  Thanks for the help.

I want to be able to control an led strip so that it has unique color assigned to individual lights that changes at a specific time increment. 

Think of it like a matrix with that was 30x1.... the thing is I don't want it to display chasing.... I would want all 30 (or however many) leds to change based on time.

If this makes any sense, I would love some direction in to which types of strips this would work for... as well as how I would go about programming this? 

Thanks!

The sort of strip that has individually-addressable LEDs.

Could you be more specific?
I don't know too many strips that aren't commoned.

Do you just want all the LED's in the strip to have the same color and then change to another color at a given time ?

That would be quite easy.

...which types of strips this would work for...

For starters you could look at Digital Addressable RGB LED Strip and Digital RGB LED Strip Tutorial

Thanks guys...

Dave I think this is what I was looking for...  I'm going to start digging into that.

Mikmo...   I want each led to be different colors based on an animation.

Thanks again!!!
