OFF Off Y Y Switches off all the LEDs.
BLINK Blink Y Y Blink all the LEDs together.
BLINKALT Blink Alternate Y Y Blink the LEDs alternatively.
SPARKLE Sparkle Y Y Sparkling effect. Speed of the animation controls the probability of switching on a new pixel. Default value is 1500.
SPARKLE2 Sparkle 2 Y Y Similar to 'Sparkle' but pixels fade out. Speed of the animation controls the probability of switching on a new pixel. Default value is 1500.
STROBO Strobo Y Y Strobo effect with 10% duty cycle. Best effect with duration set between 150 and 300.
CYCLECOLORS Cycle colors - Y Switches through all the colors in the palette.


Shifting, Scrolling


ID Animation  Led  RgbLed Description
PIXELSHIFTRIGHT Pixel Shift Right Y Y A pixel moving from left to right.
PIXELSHIFTLEFT Pixel Shift Left Y YA pixel moving from right to left.
PIXELBOUNCE Pixel Bounce Y Y A pixel is moving from left to right and back.
PIXELSMOOTHSHIFTRIGHT Pixel Smooth Shift Right Y Y Similar to the 'Pixel Shift Right' animation but with anti-aliasing to have a smoother animation.
PIXELSMOOTHSHIFTLEFT Pixel Smooth Shift Left Y Y Similar to the 'Pixel Shift Left' animation but with anti-aliasing to have a smoother animation.
PIXELSMOOTHBOUNCE Pixel Smooth Bounce Y Y Similar to the 'Pixel Bounce' animation but with anti-aliasing to have a smoother animation.
COMET Comet Y Y Comet effect. Front LED fully on and a fading trail moving to the right.
COMETCOL Colored Comet - Y Comet effect. Comet is colored using the palette.
BARSHIFTRIGHT

    2. Directional effects already have left/right version.
      For example PIXELSHIFTRIGHT/PIXELSHIFTLEFT.
      What effect do you want to reverse?
