I’m trying to get WLED to work in a stage setting with my SK6812 Lights, and I was previously using the Preset setting, which was OK, but required creating presets that I wanted to use, and then
The biggest problem I had with the preset setting with my WLED controllers was that there was always flickering when adjusting the brightness, or switching to a different preset. It was OK, but not something I’d want to use in a show.
Then I found the Effect setting, which is great, seems a lot more responsive, and doesn’t use nearly as many channels as the the full pixel control of the strips, plus allows a lot of customizability.
The problem that I’m having is I cannot seem to find the combination of RGBW settings for both Lightkey’s Profile Fixture (attached, and a screenshot to show what seems to be the closest), and the WLED settings. I don’t want to brute force Red to work on the lights and Lightkey while WLED thinks I’m sending it Blue, because that means the Palettes won’t work at all.
My video shows the Lightkey preset using a different colour order for the DMX channels:
Channels 7-15 are in the order Blue Green Red
NOT Red Green Blue like the E1.31 manual states. When I configure it that way, WLED thinks I’m sending different colours. And adjusting the LED preferences (They were fine before) makes WLED even wronger.

In addition, here is the WLED information screen. I hadn’t realized until recently that this is actually an ESP8266 controller.
