Pushpin icon speedrun (alternate method).
The solution: If you’re noticing issues, use a very dark grey instead of black, or slow down the animation.
Here’s a dramatic recreation to make it obvious (and so you can see what it looks like without needing an OLED).
This usually means some part of the image looks like it lags when scrolling or animating. This GIF will show the effect if viewed on an OLED display. It’s reasonably subtle, but easy to spot once you know what it looks like.
Black level and contrast are way better on OLEDs, because there’s no backlight. But, be careful when using pure black — changing pixels from black to any colour is slower than changing from a colour to a colour. This is often called OLED black smearing.
Processing has been tons of fun to learn. It feels like a super-power to be able to write code to do things would be almost impossible in a design tool.
All the code is available as open source. https://github.com/bjango/Processing-SVG-experiments
It’s been a while, but I finally have another article ready to go.
