Currently there is no way to load a pattern on the tree, but if you do create a pattern that you like, send us a link to the edited pattern and we will see about including it in an updated tree. The pattern editor is currently a bit in the crude state, but a quick explanation of it is that patterns are a sequence of tweened states that the tree code cycles through 24 times per second. So if you wanted an LED to blink at a 1 second interval, you would need to have 24 steps. For example the Drip pattern lasts for exactly 30 seconds and has 720 steps in it.
Power On Self Test Pattern
When the tree is first turned on it runs a simple pattern to cycle the colors on all the LEDs so that you can check for assembly errors. See the POST pattern in the editor.
Power Down Pattern
When the change button is held for 3 seconds it shows a simple pattern indicating that it is about to power down. See the Power Down pattern in the editor.
Once the tree starts, it initially shows the Marquis pattern and then sequences through all the patterns switching approximately every 30 seconds. The patterns are:
- Marquis. This pattern is intended to minic the rotating lights typically seen around an old style movie theater. See the Marquis pattern in the editor.
- Twinkle3. All of the LEDs are lit up with the "Star" at the top of the tree a bright white as the other LEDs randomly rotate through the full color spectrum. See the Twinkle pattern in the editor.
- Swing. Much like a pendulum, a white line swings back and forth through the tree, slowly changing the background color of the tree with each swing of the pendulum. See the Swing pattern in the editor.
- On/Off. All of the LEDS slowly turn on and off cycling through the basic primary and secondary colors. See the On/Off pattern in the editor.
- Twinkle4. The LEDs slowly blink on and off in random colors with the "star" at the top of the tree as a bright white. See the Twinkle pattern in the editor.
- Trickle Down. Lines of color fall from the top of the tree to the bottom in waves, slowly changing the color of the entire tree through the full spectrum of colors. See the Trickle Down pattern in the editor.
- Rainbow. A rainbow of colors slowly washes from the right to the left of the tree. See the Rainbow pattern in the editor.
- Fireworks. Intended to mimic fireworks, a light shoots up from the bottom of the tree exploding into a burst of red and yellow that fades to the bottom of the tree. See the Fireworks pattern in the editor.
- Twinkle. The LEDs on the tree rapidly blink on and off changing color with each blink while the "star" at the top of the tree twinkles white and yellow. See the Twinkle pattern in the editor.
- TriSwing. A white line rotates clockwise around the tree bouncing off the edge and changing the background color of the tree with each bounce. See the Tri Swing pattern in the editor.
- Drip. Also called drain, this resembles a drop of water filling up the tree with a sea of blue, and then draining down with bubbles when the tree is full. See the Drip pattern in the editor.
- Twinkle1. A faster blinking version of Twinkle where the LEDS rapidly blink on and off, changing color with each blink while the "star" at the top twinkles white and yellow. See the Twinkle pattern in the editor.
- Corner Takeover. Waves of colors wash down to the lower left of the tree as it slowly changes color through the full spectrum. See the Corner Takeover pattern in the editor.
- Cross Star. A white cross explodes into a full color star. See the Cross Star pattern in the editor.
- Twinkle2. All of the LEDs on the tree slowly change color as the top "star" twinkles white and yellow. See the Twinkle pattern in the editor.
