I want to turn on 1 or 2 LEDs at a time very slowly. Is that possible?
If yes, please recommend the best PC software to do that.
Thanks for any help.

Possible? Yes!
I don't know about a PC software. Usually it's done by a microcontroller, e.g. an Arduino.
Either by using PWM or by using adressable LEDs (e.g. WS2812B).
Heaps of tutorials on either of these techniques is available on the internet. Would you be comfortable with programming an Arduino?

Thanks for your help. I have worked with Arduino. I will investigate.

Here is a simple programmable timer application you might consider :


High power LEDs ?

You can do this task with an Arduino and 2 LEDs. You will need to connect the two LEDs with 2 PWM pins.
