More effect information available via API

Started by delicate__sunset__56


When writing your own applications for switching effects, it would be nice to get more information about available effects via the API. Two very specific examples that I'd like to use are:

  1. Having a way to determine whether an effect is a "rythm" effect or not. This would, for example, allow applications to pick appropriate effects depending on whether music is playing currently.
  2. Get a preview picture of the colors of an effect. Similar to how the Android app displays the available effects with a small bar on the bottom showing the main colors of the effect. That way, applications can show a preview of the effect.
