CVI Lab: A showcase for canvas effects

Category: Canvas, Showcase

Christian Effenberger has built a lot of unobtrusive canvas-based libraries and thought it would be a good idea to generate a showcase in form of a WYSIWYG application, in order to get a fast impression of theavailable CVI effects and their illustration qualities.

The CVI lab is now out there, with just the curl effect available right now, with the others coming soon.

Pretty neat. I wonder if it could also be turned into an animation.
Unfortunately their license is far to restrictive for widespread adoption.

It crashes my Firefox under WinXP, as soon as I press the ‘start’ button. Anyone else getting the same problem?

Is this the same kind of stuff as used for the annoying add in the corner of http://coldfusion.sys-con.com/ ?

perhaps posthing things that don’t have a “under constrcution” sign on them might be a good idea. “Hey look at this really cool thing!! Nothing works but what’s not working is really cool. Really, believe me it is!”

[b]mefisto:[/b] WFM in Opera. But I’m not sure that such things bring more value than just showcase.

@vance — That said, this is still a pretty awesome idea. The browser-based photoshop filter browser, version 0.1

Today I’ve added support for edge and instant.
The other effects will come soon.

Application has been tested with IE6, FF1.5/2.0, Opera9, Safari2 on Win and Mac.
FF2 and Opera9 supports to download the modified image.

If you get in trouble, please send me an email!
