I am totally new to dotstars, and i wondered if there is a way I can do a simple fade up to a color and fade off, a specific range of pixels in sequence?

Yeah, there’s definitely a way. :slight_smile: What have you tried?

Familiar with how HSV colors work? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSL_and_HSV

Define a color as CHSV(hue, saturation, value). 0 for hue is red. 255 for full saturation (red vs white). Start with 0 for value and you’ll get black (unlit LEDs). Incrementally increase value to get brighter and more red.
