hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. how do you do the math necessary to display something like this on a led matrix? if it was just a simple string of leds, i could see how to do it, but not for a matrix. im rather confused by this seemingly simple thought that i cant seem to find an answer to

Here’s my goto links for this kind of thing:

1-Create a colour gradient that you can index from 0 to X
2-Draw a circle radius Y(initially 1) % (width of canvas) with colour X%(Colour index range)
3-Increment Radius
4-Increment Colour index X
5-Goto 2
