Contest Brief

Hello, Everyone

I am looking for a freelancer who can help me with building an LED effects example for a small LED board.

Attached is the picture of the LED board. The Circle is the Circuit board and should be black color. the small squares arrayed onto the board are the RGB Color LED's.

What i am looking for is a programmer or animator using Unity or Adobe After Effects so make some examples of how the LED's could create interesting lighting effects. You must make it look like the small squares (LED's) are lighting up in the lighting patterns so it can look as realistic as possible.

This small circular display will be used to indicate a consumer products status. If any of you have ever seen how amazon alex works then you understand 1 basic pattern that could be displayed.

I would like to see a circular pattern where there is a leading LED moving around the outisde of the circle followed bu a trail of led's that are getting dimmer. Imagine the loading wheel in a bowser or Mac has the color pin wheel.

Also there will be a battery filling effect so image this little display has to show the battery level.

I hope you are creative and can dazzel me with your effects that can be done on this small round display.

For some additional inspiration here are some BASIC examples. I hope you can do better then this! but these will give you a glimps in the direction i need to go

I would like example animations for these following function illustrations:
- Power turn on \ turn off (create your own idea)
- Bluetooth Pairing mode (circular blue ring pattern like chasing its tail, similar to pairing amazon alexa)
- Bluetooth connected Confirmation (pulsing blue rings)
- charging \ battery level (raining green pixels to the button of the circle trying to fill up the gas tank)
- Volume Level (like a pie chart getting more full or less full)


Use your Creative imagination to lets see your lighting effects ideas

The attached image shows you the LED pixel locations and how many pixels we will need to use in the simulator.

And for any of you 3D animators out there. I attached the 3D model as a STEP file

    Hey Everyone Thanks for all your hard work and examples:
    I have chosen to award Nemanja as he has created a Unity application where I can press buttons to play each animation sequence and the sequences are stunning!

    is a single small box enough for the light source of each led?(that represents the actual light emitting diode)?

      This was made in 3D software so all i have is the 3D formats

      Actually the image can be vectorized and animation can be done using SVG. So the animation can be done with vectors pretty well.

    Hi, great contest. Quick question as i am working on it. Do you want realistic renders. for example the leds having nice materials and glowing effects . Or is the focus mainly on the animation of the lights and movement/patterns.

      also the LED's front face are square and in the exact array i showed. so it does need to look like individual led's are lighting up.
