Bitmap animations (Beta)

This is a cool - yet still rather experimental feature! This page might change...

NeoAnim is a way to encode NeoPixel animation into bitmaps. It's a surprisingly easy way to design cool animation (once you wrap your head around the concept).

The pxt-neoanim implements this technique for MakeCode. It also comes with a converter that takes an image and turns into the JavaScript code that MakeCode can understand.

The image below is an example of possible animation and the editor shows the animation once converted.
