Is there any issue with having both a dma and a uart strip in the same sketch?

Hi, Up to now u was using the ESP8266 / UART branch from January 2016. With the latest branch - it seems like the brightness has changed a bit - to get to the same brightness before i had to give e.g. 5, and now 30.. i do not mind, but i would like to understand if this is intentionally or i have done something wrong ?

@DickyMcCockpants There should not be any issues; but I have never tested it specifically.
@vlast3k Brightness? Are you stating that you were using a RgbColor initialized with (5,5,5) before, but now you are initializing it with (30,30,30) to get the same visual brightness?
Also, you are referring to the latest branch as the "master" correct? Generally, if you are only consuming the library, just use the Arduino Library manager and search for "NeoPixelBus". It should show up.

@vlast3k Provide a snippit of code as an example of how you were initializing/setting the color then and now. There should be nothing that has changed around this; but an example will help me understand the specifics.

@Makuna aaahh, such a shame, i cannot believe it, it is working exactly as the old one - my mistake!. Just that apparently up to now i only tested it at home, and we have a dark appartment. Now i tested it in a bright sunlit room and was surprised it is shining so "dim" ! The next device i am going to build will be a lux meter :)

@vlast3k Since you are moving your code forward, you may want to review the "gamma" support; normally if you set colors with a linear gradient from black to arbitrary color, you will see that the brightness is not evenly increasing. If you use the Gamma correction object before setting the color, they will display as linear brightness change.
