To start using SPI LED Controller you have to use LED Strip Studio (LSS) software to create correct strip layout and to prepare your SD Card animations. To know more about the LSS software we recommend to watch tutorials for LED Strip Studio software.

To export your scene to your SD Card you have to do following steps:

  1. Start LSS software.
  2. Create a correct mapping (for any LSS Ethernet IP address) which represent your physical LED world. How to do LED mapping in LED Strip studio software you can find in this tutorial – LED Mapping.
  3. Create your scene (LED animation). Don’t know how to create LED animation, please, see this tutorial. – Create new animation.
  4. To export scene into LNT file go to the menu Scenes → Export scene to SD Card.
  5. Choose LSS Ethernet, where you’ve created the mapping. LSS Ethernet is defined by IP address 192.168.1.X, where X is arbitrary. For creating a mapping, you can create LSS Ethernet with any IP address.
  6. Select the folder, where you want to export the file. Typically it’s the folder of your SD Card.
  7. File index allows you to define on which animation position you’ll export the file – from 001 to 255.
  8. LSS software exports LNT file with name LSSXXX.LNT, where XXX is from 001 to 255.
  9. Save the exported LNT file to your SD Card.

 


Choose Ethernet with defined mapping to be used for export

 

 

To create settings.txt file, which tells the SPI LED Controller what kind of strip and what file it should play you have to create a configuration file. All the files must be saved to your micro SD Card and you have to insert this card to your SPI LED Controller device.
