Custom .gif animation upon Magic Mirror Startup. Is this possible?
I didn’t see any posts on the forum about this topic already, so I was wondering if the concept of having a custom animation launch (that is played only once) upon the MagicMirrors startup is possible. I know there is already a module that allows the user to input custom animations inside their magicMirror “MMM-EyeCandy” as a module exists, but has anyone come across the possibility of using this module or another method to have a custom .gif animation appear -> play -> and then disappear before allowing any other modules in the mirror to load in?
All help on the topic is appreciated!
You mean when you start the raspberry PI or that a gif gets played right before the others appear?
@maxbachmann Preferably having a gif play before the other modules appear. In my setup, I’ll either use a motion sensor or commands to keep the mirror in the off-state until I want to use the mirror so when the mirror is activated I want the custom animation to play before the other modules come into focus.
Well you could just add some code to your other modules to hide them when they are set up and let your gif module send a message to the other modules to show after the gif finished. (How sending these messages and reacting to them to show/hide modules works you can see quite well in Mykles Hello Lucy module, where he uses them to hide/show modules according to voice commands)
