I used WS2801 stripes to build a 15x15 matrix.
I want to create an amination for my girlfriend(s birthday).
Hyperion is running fine a Raspberyy Pie 4.
I'm more a technical guy so setting it up was easy but creating a nice animation is difficult for me
I though about a big red heart and things like that.
I found 2 approaches:
1. Create a video which contains the anomation. I think that's a relative easy approach. But I'm unsure how it will look when it gets transformed to the 15x15 matrix.
Will it still look nice?
2. Create an effect. I think that's a more exact approach. I have microcontroller programming experience but very small experience with python or images processing.
I read the effect documentation but I'm a little bit overwhelmed. Is there an easy way to convert a bitmap or gif file into the effect API?
Do you have any other ideas how to do it in a nice and effective way?
Thank you very much.
