Enough with the in-depth boring stuff. Let’s do something fun with Adalight! Aside from the relatively straight-forward color data, each Adalight frame is preceded by a small six-byte header. Since this header data is mixed in with a lot of RGB color data, I got to thinking… if this data was pushed to the LEDs, what would it look like?
In this post I’m going to show you how to calibrate your ambilight in Prismatik so that it matches your screen, showing proper white and truer colors! This is going to be a long post, so sit back and strap in!
Before we can start making patterns with our shiny new NeoPixel prototyping board, we must first understand how to structure color information in a format the Arduino can interpret.
