I am currently working on a jQuery plug providing some cool <canvas> animations. It's at an early dev stage, some bugs to fix, plenty of work to do.
If you have a minute, could you please visit animify.com and check out the demos. Any feedback, suggestions, ideas much appreciated
That was the idea - not to overdo it, but do something which by default picks up the style of your site and colours and make a matching effect. You can customise it a bit and there is more options coming, so if someone wants to there will be an opportunity to go tasteless-crazy
A quick update: version 0.46 is out ready for testing:
1) 'intro' param added, available for each effect and on by default -> at the moment it fades in the effect after the page has loaded, there will be more intros coming though
2) 'posterize' param for 'film-noir' added, check the demos
3) Debug toolbar (only performance can be checked at the moment)
4) Validation - the script will leave your browser alone if it cannot average 15 fps
