  • A video move through 3 divs on a page
  • Use timecodes provided by Brett execute javascript
  • Create an effect to resemble comic books

Release 0.2

  • Combine close-pixelate.js and video

Demo 0.1

When the Play button is pressed on the video the frames from that video will be written to a number of canvases. The first canvas is just a straight frame by frame copy of the video. The second canvas is trying to mimic a comic book style by modifying frames to create solid colours. The last row of canvases are having the video frames written to them with offsets to give the effect of a moving video.

The video time is being tracked which will eventually be used to execute javascript at time intervals.

Current Issues

  • I've combined the close pixelate library together with video but it's quite choppy. This is probably because of the amount processing required to render the effect.
