Non-Reactive Animations

Note 1: Due to its limited capability, we have disabled 2D animations on the ESP8266 platform.
Note 2: The 2D routines require a minimum of 4 pixels in both directions. If you see blinking red, your 2D settings don't match the requirements. (not required in latest dev)
Note 3: As we continue to develop SR WLED, some animations may appear or disappear. It's still a work very much in progress. Some may only appear in the dev branch for now.
Note 6: In dev branch, sliders have been renamed from FFT Low to Custom 1, FFT High to Custom 2 and FFT Custom to Custom 3.

2D Animations

Oh, and special thanks are in order for urish for creating wokwi, Elliot and his team for soulmatelights and Stepko and ldirko for some awesome 2D animations. With their approval, we were able to convert and publish several of their animations to use with WLED.
