NEW GUIDE: Creating GIFs for SmartMatrix
SmartMatrix can display 32×32 GIFs with good color depth and a high frame rate. There are plenty of free tools for creating and modifying GIFs, but a lot of them limit the frame rate and don’t work very well. This tutorial will show you how to use online tools for creating GIF files that will play well using the AnimatedGIFs SmartMatrix sketch and the Aurora sketch running on SmartMatrix.
This guide is meant to be used after you have assembled a SmartMatrix Shield and added a microSD card to play GIFs, following instructions in our other guides: SmartMatrix Animated GIF Player, and optionally SmartMatrix Remote Controlled LED Art Display.
To demonstrate the video and GIF conversion tools, we will work with two simple examples: extracting a short clip from the Big Buck Bunny video, and converting a high resolution looping GIF to 32×32 pixels.
