    Eye candy

    Anyone ever make anything like winamp visualizations, or particle engines that move around and look real cool? I have been real into that lately. The best I can do is feel the screen with random pixels and have them fade to different colors. I also made a demo with 10,000 circles that moved around the screen real fast. I guess if you do not know what I am talking about, look at http://www.pixelate.co.za/issues/3/3/comp/results.htm.

    there was a thread called particle systems less than a week ago in which I explained the math behind a particle system, more or less. Look it up, it should still be around, pretty close to the top.
    Away.

    I was not really looking for a formula, but thank you. I was more interested in seeing what other people have done. Particle engines facinate me right now.

    ah, well, you may not be looking for a way to make one (YET) But you will be after you see how cool some of them look (: Or at least you should be (: Anyway, just search for it on Google, I'm sure you'll find a ton of them to look at (: When you start to drool, it's time to start coding one.
    Away.
