New Effect.

This is a pretty simple effect, it allows blinking your pixels and changing the blink speed.

A new prompt, blink_speed, is how many ms the led is on and how long it is off.

Unlike all previous effects, this blink rate will be calculated using your frame timing. So if you choose 200ms, it will be 200ms regardless of frame timing.

Standard multi color strings are RED, GREEN, BLUE, YELLOW and PURPLE. The 5 colors i choose match these colors.

For this first effect I set sparkles variable to 100%. This means every pixel in your target will be blinking.

Here instead of 100% of the pixels blinking, i choose 20%.

I also changed the colors.

I slowed the blink rate from 300 ms to 500ms.

The blink rate should be calculated using your frame timing and allows you to pick how fast the lights blink.

If you pick 500 then a pixel will be on for 500ms and off for 500s.
