A particle system is a technique used to simulate a variety of special visual effects like sparks, dust, smoke, fire, explosions, rain, stars, falling snow, glowing trails, and many others. Basically, a particle system consists of emitters and the particles themselves. The basic idea behind particle system is very simple – by drawing lots of very small squares or circles, which behave individually according to some rules, you can generate a visual effect where the sum of the parts is much more than the parts separately. Here are some amazing particle effect animation tutorials and examples using HTML5 canvas to help you create beautiful visual effects, such as explosions, lasers, fire, and so on.
Learn how to use this simple yet powerful technique to build your own stunning visuals.
Add some basic physics to create a particle-based water fountain.
The main concept here is that there are some particles on the canvas which start attracting other when they come close to each other. Also, they’ll start drawing lines between them as they come closer to each other and the opacity of the lines depends upon the distance between them.
Holy moly, that looks amazing. Not only is the design great and the colors are just about perfect, but those little sparkles are crazy!
The particles are basically made of simple circles with radial gradients and random properties for velocity, size and color.
In its most elemental form, particle systems are composed by two main objects: A particle object, which will represent every individual particle, and a generator, which will generate particles themselves.
Creating fireworks using the HTML 5 canvas: both awesome and fun to do
Michael Chang will outline the discovery process, share some programming techniques, and finish with some thoughts for future improvement.
Particles orbit around magnets which can be dragged around to create currents. The HTML5 canvas element is used for visual output.
