Hey everyone! New owner here. I was watching some reviews before buying the car and I noticed that some reviews had a cool effect to the heartbeat DRLs. I can’t seem to recreate it though. I tried turning the fogs off, turn signals, and hazards but no luck. Am I missing something?
The effect I’m talking about is 3:10 into the video. Example

You can’t. I believe that’s just the nature of how the camera picks up the led light unfortunately. Would be really cool if you could though!

I dunno. It looks too perfect for it to be that IMO. I feel like it would be blinking if it was a weird camera issue. Bummer though

its the frame rate of the camera being faster than the rate of the pulse width modulator for the leds. basically the leds are constantly in a flash but at i high frequency'
Yep, this is exactly it. If the lights were shot with 60 FPS and 120 FPS, you'd see a difference between the two in terms of the "pulsing" speed.
