Hello,

After buying the Dotstar LED strips for my project (almost done with it), I thought of replicating the same thing using dotstar flexible matrix (the readymade ones for eg which Adafruit sells), primarily because it was quite a hard work!! For the matrices I have a doubt...

If I intend to make a screen using, lets say, 4 dotstar matrices, then when I connect them as follows (assume the 4 quadrants, that would be helpful in visualising and I am placing a matrix in every quadrant starting from 1 to 4. Now I connect the input of 1 to Arduino, the output of 1 to input of 2, the output of 2 to input of 3, the output of 3 to input of 4. My question is: Does this arrangement act like a "Continuous" screen? What I want to know is that is the first row comprised of the first rows of 1 and 2 matrices or the first row is comprised of first two rows of 1 matrix??

Could anybody clarify, because if they are not like first row complete (1 and 2 matrices combined) and so on, the software part would be really tricky to individually address each LED. The numbering would be different.....was just wondering...

Thanks!
