Hey all, I'm trying to run the example Fire2012WithPalette via VS Code and Platformio IDE. I installed the FastLED library (I can see all the files in libdeps), but I'm getting a literal ton of compilation errors when trying to run it: https://gist.github.com/calebmeyer/0492d7e5d4ca88519e21c34c4c53e478
This is using an arduino nano atmega 328 and an Adafruit Neopixel 12 LED ring. I'm able to verify both work with the NeoPixel library.
Hello @Escrich Yes you can do this. Check out these links. If you still have questions please come ask in the reddit group where lots more people can help out.
@radgroza Here you go.
Use this toggle to enable global brightness in controllers that support is (ADA102 and SK9822). It changes how color scaling works and uses global brightness before scaling down color values. This enables more accurate color control on low brightness settings.
Value 1 means faster bit operations but only uses 6 extra brightness levels (powers of 2).
Value 2 means slightly slower math operations but it uses all 31 brightness levels.
Hello! Looking into parallel output for NeoPixels. I see the wiki page here: https://github.com/FastLED/FastLED/wiki/Parallel-Output
So there are two methods: the "Parallel output" method and the OctoWS2811 method. It sounds like the parallel method is an improvement over the OctoWS2811 method, but I can't quite tell from the wording. I have a Teensy 3.2. I can use any set of pins, and I am driving 3 lines of 50 LEDs each. Which method should I use?
@SteveYager_twitter I'll point you to this wiki which has a collection of some of the stuff you're asking about.
After that please feel free to post questions to the FastLED Reddit group and we'll try to help.
