    Another quick shot from the generative art engine I'm working on. HTML5 canvas rendered. I'm a bit uncertain on the exact numbers, but there are anywhere between 100 and 1000 circles rendered.

    Looks good. Is that a full-size shot?

    I have just started tinkering with HTML5, and I've got to say that the canvas elements possibilities have been blowing me away. Can't wait to see this thing running!

    Thanks guys!

    Christian: The full size of the shot was 1430 x 650, but eventually I'll scale it out to a decent printable size. Just not wanting to continually test with that much latency.

    Anthony: Every time I work with canvas I'm impressed further. I can't speak for anyone else, but even with the weight of drawing high numbers of objects it has been better for me than with Flash and ActionScript 2.

    Drawing many objects in canvas will be faster than flash as a rule as canvas is bitmapped, so it doesn't have to worry about the layers. Drawing many many objects with SVG will have similar slowdowns to flash.

    That does make all the difference. Draw and forget versus draw and keep track of it until you tell it not to. =)

    Joel: Thanks! I've been meaning to pick up that book, too. I'm really glad people are writing about Canvas, there are still so many unknowns and dead ends. It's definitely fun stuff regardless.

    Thanks for the invite! Unfortunately I'll have to miss this one, since we moved back up to Michigan. I definitely appreciate it though.
