    I'm not aware of any general significance of DrawOneFrame functions. They don't invoke any particular FastLED behaviour. For projects where a variety of different effects can be presented, the author may choose to use C++ classes to provide a standard interface to initialise and display those effects. In my WavyDots sketch, that function name is a vestige of such a choice. The Aurora project does something similar. So does the Striptease project, but there the DrawOneFrame function is simply called loop.

    On the T4 I found I can completely fill the screen with them: ~8,000 Wu pixels per frame at ~80 FPS. Is the current speed hampering you on ESP32?
