3D Canvas Demos in 2D Canvas

Category: Canvas, Examples

Paul Baukus pointed us to an English translation of some of the amazing stuff he saw in his recent trip to Japan. In this case, it’s an emulation of 3D rendering in canvas’ 2D context:

This stuff is CPU intensive, but is a pretty nice example of what’s possible.

Reminds me of the techniques papervision 3d uses for flash ;)

Looks good.

I can’t believe few days ago I asked another developer to start the Sandy Engine porting into Canvas ’cause papervision 3D was too big to transform and here Japan is with what I was planning to do realized. 5 stars!

impressive work, but why do we have to torture your CPUs with this? What about Canvas 3d. There is already a Firefox plugin. How much longer will it take the Webkit and Gecko team to integrate Canvas 3d natively?

Does not seem to be working for FF 3.0.6 on Ubuntu 8.10

Only demo 3 seems to be working anymore :( . Tested on FF 3 and Chrome on XP.

Demo 1 works well, if a bit slowly. Demo 2 seems to be offline. Demo 3 has some cool reflections but the movement is really twitchy. It’s very cool though.
