Creating animation with a hoop or poi sounds like it would work in theory, but doesn’t directly translate to objects in motion. With a traditional animation, each frame is displayed in the exact same spot as the previous frame. If you were to display a series of animated frames on a flow prop you would […]

FutureHoop Pro and FutureHoop Remote in 5/8 currently come in minis sizes as small as 18″ OD and are available now, but won’t have the ability to have images uploaded to them. If this question hasn’t […]
If you have patterns that were made for other LED flow props, these should be able to be displayed on the hoop as long as they are bitmap files. Only the bitmaps themselves would transfer over, but not any folder specific data to do with the pattern settings.
Motion modes use the movement and orientation of the hoop to drive the row-by-row animation of a bitmap pattern. There are currently two types of motion control: wheel and globe. In a motion mode, when you turn, the direction of animation will change depending on which direction you are turning the “wheel” or rotating the […]

Removable batteries leave a small light gap, but you could have virtually endless hoop sessions, as long as you keep putting in a fresh battery.

The FutureHoop Designer weights are very similar to the Pro (non-removable battery) and Remote (removable battery) hoops. Please use these hoop weights for reference until we have new info to post.
Fixing dim colors in Photoshop Some colors can look okay in the bitmap on your computer, but appear dim on the hoop. To make the bitmap brighter, you’ll want to look at your colors in the HSB settings (Hue Saturation Brightness) and turn up Saturation and Brightness until they are closer to 100%. In Photoshop […]
