Smartmatrix - gif - position on the display


the library is great, but I found no answer to my question.

The example “AnimatedGifs” works great with 32x32 pixel gifs. I have two 64x64 panels.
Can i specify, where the gif should be played on the display? By default, the gif is always played in the top left corner.

Thank you so much for help. :slight_smile:

Best regards

Looking at the AnimatedGIFs example, It looks like you can modify drawPixelCallback to add offsets to x and y. You could use global variables for the offsets if you wanted to change the position dynamically. Haven’t tried it but it should work…

Thank you very much. It works. :slight_smile:

You only have to adjust the coordinates in this line in the function.

void drawPixelCallback(int16_t x, int16_t y, uint8_t red, uint8_t green, uint8_t blue) {
   #if (USE_SMARTMATRIX == 1)
       backgroundLayer.drawPixel(x+64, y, {red, green, blue});

My fork of the lib supports offsets and shrinking/zooming into gifs (for instance to display a 32x32 on a 24x32 display)

Same lib, just with a few improvements like this one
