The little 240x240 screen on the CLUE can be used to display simple animated GIFs, a great way to make a project from an existing GIF or video!
We have a full guide on the animated GIF code here, its an Arduino sketch (CircuitPython does not yet have the ability to play animated GIFs).
Here's the CLUE quickstart:
- Make sure you have a 'filesystem' on the QSPI flash. If you aren't sure, simply load CircuitPython once, that will create the 2 MB disk drive.
- Load the GIF player UF2 from this button:
- On the CIRCUITPY disk drive that appears, create a gifs folder, and drag the two demo GIFs from this zip into the CIRCUITPY/gifs folder.
Use the A and B buttons to go forward/back through the collection of gifs in the folder. For more info on how to configure and customize behavior - check the guide!
