Shouldn't the the PWM frequency be high enough so that i cant see the flickering?
Hi lukeskymuh, I believe I might be encountering the same issue as you. The flickering I encounter is when the leds are dimmed to a low pwm value, they flicker in a way a candle flame does right before it goes out. Not like a refresh rate problem. I thought it was my hardware but I realize now I am not encountering the problem when I set the pwm to a fixed value, or strobe it with a simple loop. Turns out, the only time I can get this flicker to happen is when running that color swirl code form adafruit which you linked to.
