Change colour of a (sub) section of LEDs?

edited January 2014 in BlinkyTape Fun
Is it possible to issue a single command to change, say, LEDs 20 through 40 to some RGB value? Or is it necessary to actually resend the data for all 60 LEDs? Alternatively, is it possible to upload an "image" and then selectively hop around to different columns? I'm trying (in Python) to minimize the amount of data transfer. On the other hand, its only 180 bytes of data to redefine the strip. Maybe I just shouldn't worry about it?

  • I'd say don't worry about it - the serial protocol basically requires you to write all 180ish bytes, so there's not really a way around it (and it's not too much data, so it's not such a big deal, we think.)

    Let us know how it goes!
