I’ve got some patterns which are too complex (state, look-ahead, complex maths) to render on the fly, and I’m currently pre-computing them and rendering them to an image where each row of the image is a frame of my LED strips. This is happening on a computer on the network with no memory and CPU constraints, I don’t think it’s possible to port to the pixelblaze.
What I’d like to do, however, is send a frame of LED data directly to the hardware through some kind of API, probably the websocket one (although I’ll be bridging that to MQTT to fir with the rest of the system I’m building). Is this something that’s possible to do in some way, or am I going to have to write my own firmware for the hardware?
I’m happy to do the software from scratch if needed, but if anyone can think of a workaround using the current system that would obviously be easier! I bought the v3 mostly because it saved me from having to design my own carrier board with level shifting etc. The web interface and other software is very neat, but I don’t think it can do what I need in this case.
