Thanks guys, this is all very helpful information. My cube is a “walled cube”, although while messing around with the “volumetric cube” mapping I find some patterns actually look better in some ways (eg. honeycomb, spiral twirls, etc.).
Maybe there’s a way to do this, although I’m not sure, is it possible to specify a different mapping for a particular pattern on the fly? So let’s say I wanted to use a walled cube mapping for one pattern and volumetric for another I could do that without manually loading the mapping.
The other main thing I’m wondering is how I should be arranging/orienting my LED panels in the frame. If I follow the wizard’s model this is how I’ve got all them oriented now (if using the walled cube mapping):
I’m not sure which one should technically be the start and the end?
If I switch to volumetric though I need to rotate two panels 180 degrees it seems to look correct. One other thing I couldn’t get to work with the walled cube mapping is the scrolling text pattern. I can make some simple adjusts to the 2D matrix and volumetric mappings and it works, but still not sure why I can’t get it for the walled cube mapping.
It’s a shame they don’t make these LED matrix panels with a transparent plane instead of the solid black, that would be awesome. Or make pre-fab volumetric LED’s arranged in a way so that one doesn’t have to solder each of them one by one. My soldering skills are meh, but maybe that’s what I need to get better.
I need to find some time to go through the tutorials and threads here as there’s a wealth of information that I’ve barely scratched the surface on obviously. Anyway, thanks once again
