Adobe’s CSS Shaders{2}


As HTML advances forward, Adobe is working on creating Adobe CSS Shaders. Currently still in draft, it would allow developers to develop in more of a rich, cinematic filter effects to HTML. Some effect examples are waves, ripples, warps, swipes, etc. CSS Shaders is similar to WebGL shaders, however WebGL is only for HTML5. With CSS Shaders, it will work on any version of HTML. Unfortunately, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 10 does not allow any form of filter effects with shaders, and if CSS Shaders gets approved, Microsoft will have to make some changes.

This ties into our class lectures on CSS because we recently covered over CSS. I took the time to look further into Adobe’s CSS Shaders, and I actually found some interesting examples of what CSS Shaders look like. You too can view some of the examples found here: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/html5/articles/css-shaders.html
