Hi guys, I am hoping someone out there will be able to give me some advice on a project I am working on. I’m pretty new to this forum and Arduinos in general so please forgive my ignorance. I have had a look through the forum and can’t find my problem listed so apologies if I have missed it and it’s covered elsewhere
The project involves 5 strips of 60 ws2811 LEDs and one shorter strip consisting of 17 LEDS.
The shorter strip should pulse the whole strip from very dim blue to quite a vivid cyan. This pulsing effect will illuminate a central, translucent, 3D printed sculpture. After pulsing approx 3 times the 5 strips should begin to show a chasing sequence while the pulsing continues simultaneously.
I have slightly altered the ColorPalette example which comes with the fastLED library I am happy with the color sequence for the chasing pattern. And I have separately found a sketch online which gives a nice pulsing effect. The issue I have is when the trying to make the sequences run simultaneously (or appear to run simultaneously) and start with the press of a button and stop when the button is pressed again.
I am having some real trouble with this project as will be obvious to any of those who look at the codes I have attached. If anyone could give me some pointers in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
