Lightning Strike

hey all – particularly @wizard

I’m working on an Art Car design for the PDX Soapbox Derby with the goal of having some “digital lightning” on the hood and sides.

I found a ref to the zap pattern —which is pretty close to what i’m trying to do.

Wondering if the topology of this build is reflected in the code? Or if it’s just a linear progression?

Is there any way to control the pattern more discretely? As in, fire 50 leds, then 35 leds, then 65 leds etc?
