Nice project I think it’s missing just one detail.
LED strips can have quite a bit of resistance in the traces so the voltage drops somewhat as you move further away from the supply wires, resulting in an uneven amount of light and heat if you power a full 5m strip from just one side. Since you’re only using 2.5m it’s probably less noticeable, but you can easily compensate by moving one supply wire (doesn’t matter which one) to the other strip. That way +12V is connected to the one end of the combined strip and ground at the other. Since losses in both rails are equal but now increase in opposite directions, all segments will see the same voltage. Alternatively, you could power both strips directly from the supply wires and not daisy chain them thus reducing the length on the strip and losses. You could even combine both methods and use the aluminum strip as a common ground.

​Thanks. I’ve been wanted to make some video lights after I found my LED lights in the basement were flickering in video. I knew I would have to look for some kind of a flicker free PSU but wasn’t even sure where to start. I wasn’t aware of the CRI rating so I will make sure I get strips that have a high rating.

That’s really cool!

Very good Video
but it would be nice to have some Background Music

Great for a room that doesn’t have good lighting.
