Claim of US Patent No. 10,353,562

1. A computer implemented method for creating a dynamic light effect and controlling a lighting device according to the dynamic light effect, the computer implemented method comprising:rendering a graphical representation of the lighting device in an area of an image at a first position, the first position being associated with first color information, which first color information is defined by one or more pixels of the image located at the first position,
receiving a first user input,
setting, upon receiving the first user input, the graphical representation in a movement state, wherein the graphical representation moves autonomously across the area of the image from the first position to a plurality of subsequent positions over a period of time, the plurality of subsequent positions being associated with subsequent color information, which subsequent color information is defined by one or more pixels of the image located at the respective subsequent position,
generating one or more lighting control commands based on the first color information and the subsequent color information,
communicating the generated one or more lighting control commands to the lighting device, so as to control the light output of the lighting device according to the first color information and the subsequent color information subsequently over the period of time.
