Spirograph Development


Although Flash does use vectors which give out some quite bold and clean results, I am not impressed with the more recent 3D function encorporated into the program. Above I have taken some stills of an onion skin effect on the incremental3D animation to show what it might look like if a trail were to be left behind by each oval. In order to see this animated I will have to look into coding this 3D effect, and possibly leave Flash behind for processing which uses an OpenGL pixel based rendering method. It is a shame to not be using vectors as these usually give a more fluent, clean result, but when put into 3D it seems flash cannot handle it very well.

FUTURE DEVELOPMENT:: Use the stills above as a starting point to generate a similar effect using the processing 1.0 language. Hopefully I can also integrate colour evolution into the live drawing/animation.
