This free software is designed to convert video animations into offline content, for playback via smart pixels. As a result of the conversion, we get one or a group of executable files with the *.led extension. You have 256 ports available, each 2048 pixels maximum. A pixel trace has an arbitrary trajectory: Line, matrix, triangle, zigzag, square, freehand outline and more. This software is not tied to any type of LED IC chip. For specific IC chip support, please refer to the iqLED (RF) controllers specifications.
The graphical interface of the Light Studio Terminal 1.59 application is shown below.
Example 1 – pixel costume model
Example 2 – pixel Matrix model
1. general concepts
A pixel is a smart LED, usually an RGB LED with a built-in IC chip (a digital chip for controlling a group of LEDs).
Pixel trace – a sequence of pixels connected by communication lines in any shape (straight line, rhombus, square, circle, profile outline, etc.)
Graphic wiring diagram of the WS2813 pixel route (there may be other IC chips):
iq LED Line tracer – the application is included in the Light Studio Terminal package, for convenient creation, placement, editing of pixel traces on the graphic field.
The equivalent of this scheme will look like in the appendix i q LED Line tracer, as follows:
Port – the output lines of the external control controller that transmit DATA + CLK signals (data and synchronization) to the first pixel of the pixel chain (pixel track). Often only the DATA line is used, without the CLK line, it depends on the type of smart pixel.

Note: The controller port is always connected to the first pixel of the pixel trace, to the DI – Data input terminal.
A pixel map is a set of one or more pixel traces connected to the corresponding ports.
The equivalent of this scheme – a pixel map will look like in the i q LED Line tracer application, as follows:
Graphic wiring diagram using 4 ports
The equivalent of this scheme is a pixel map (pixel map), in the appendix i q LED Line tracer:
Thus, with a large number of ports in the project, it is possible to create pixel screens, video storefronts, animated advertising banners, etc.
