    Default Ficker from bad firmware can look good or inspire .

    This is a stock 4 universe e681 driven prop with 1804(F) providing the flicker.

    Its a shame there were no updates to fix this , however it does make a great effect that near exactly simulates a twinkle from a star

    Now if I can mirror this in a sequencer

    Put in a request on the Vixen site for the effect.

    To me it looks like a timing mis-alignment that gets corrected (reset) every few frames and then starts getting out of sync again. Causes a random bit shift that causes the flicker.

    The effect is a nice chase on a limited # of ws2812b pixels that gets polluted both in color and speed .
    I have it running on tls3001 right beside and looks perfect .
    You are most likely correct that it is a timing issue , but this effect is in no way correct at any point in the video .

    Kinda looked cool on this prop though .
