FastLED Pride2015

Is there an easy way to change this to just one or two colors as opposed to the rainbow? I'm looking for the same animation just not with the full blown rainbow.

Thanks

This what?

This is the programming for the example in the FastLED Library labeled Pride2015

{     FastLED.setBrightness(255);
  myDFPlayer.play(5);

  for (int car_rpt = 0; car_rpt < 5000; car_rpt++) {
  static uint16_t sPseudotime = 0;
  static uint16_t sLastMillis = 0;
  static uint16_t sHue16 = 0;
 
  uint8_t sat8 = beatsin88( 87, 220, 250);
  uint8_t brightdepth = beatsin88( 341, 0, 0);
  uint16_t brightnessthetainc16 = beatsin88( 203, (25 * 256), (40 * 256));
  uint8_t msmultiplier = beatsin88(147, 23, 60);

  uint16_t hue16 = sHue16;//gHue * 256;
  uint16_t hueinc16 = beatsin88(113, 1, 3000);
  
  uint16_t ms = millis();
  uint16_t deltams = ms - sLastMillis ;
  sLastMillis  = ms;
  sPseudotime += deltams * msmultiplier;
  sHue16 += deltams * beatsin88( 400, 5,9);
  uint16_t brightnesstheta16 = sPseudotime;
  
  for( uint16_t i = 0 ; i < NUM_LEDS; i++) {
    hue16 += hueinc16;
    uint8_t hue8 = hue16 / 256;

    brightnesstheta16  += brightnessthetainc16;
    uint16_t b16 = sin16( brightnesstheta16  ) + 32768;

    uint16_t bri16 = (uint32_t)((uint32_t)b16 * (uint32_t)b16) / 65536;
    uint8_t bri8 = (uint32_t)(((uint32_t)bri16) * brightdepth) / 65536;
    bri8 += (255 - brightdepth);
    
    CRGB newcolor = CHSV( hue8, sat8, bri8);
    
    uint16_t pixelnumber = i;
    pixelnumber = (NUM_LEDS-1) - pixelnumber;
    
    nblend( leds[pixelnumber], newcolor, 64);
  }
  FastLED.show();
  }

  for (int fade_end = 255; fade_end > 0; fade_end--) {
FastLED.setBrightness(fade_end);
FastLED.show();
  delay(5);


}
FastLED.clear();
FastLED.show();
}

I'm looking to see if I can switch it from being the rainbow to two colors.

No it's not. The code you posted is incomplete. It does not compile. And, it includes reference to an object named "myDFPlayer" that does not exist in the FastLED Pride2015 example on GitHub.

Sorry wrong code.

Seems to me that it would be easier to just write the effect you want from scratch rather than trying to hack the existing one.

Code from Reply #5 in Wokwi simulation: https://wokwi.com/arduino/projects/299119364628546058.

Was the code supposed to be changed here. It looks the same.
