There are so many great resources out there for pixel sequencing, but here are our favourites!
xLights is simply the most comprehensive "free" sequencing software available. We say "free", it is free, but we urge all users of xlights to donate to the developers, as they do such a great job.
You can find the xlights site here: http://xlights.org/
The Canispater Christmas YouTube Channel
Jeff Lacey has produced one of the best introductions to the pixel lighting hobby and has a great channel on YouTube.
You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCby1v6Kbi8AHMkV2yMyF1MQ
Jeff refers to a lot of things that are very aligned to the USA (being based in America!), and some of the items referenced may not be available in the UK, or not called the same thing. You can get UK/EU specific help on the ELF Group, which you can read more about further down this page.
xLights offer a great range of training videos on how to use the software, but also on how to build displays, deal with power etc etc. It is mostly geared up for the US, and Australia, but most of the information is transferable to the UK and EU. Where the information is not relevant to the UK/EU, the EU think tank members will be able to help find local resources.
