What is effect_list (for Hue lights component)?

I see in the .39 notes that we now have

Hue: Add effect_list to hue light from @armills

Can someone clarify what effect_list is and how it works?

It looks like some basic effects were added. Such as Color Loop.

I’m not entirely sure how it works, or how it determines what lights/groups have effects.

For example, my theatre lights are all Hue RGB but the effect list doesn’t show up for them
My landing lights are all hue Whites and the effect list shows up for them.

Edit They do show up, but the lights have to be on.

Excellent, thanks. So it’s a UI improvement for the front-end.
