Flame is a really nice web-based experimental painting programme from Slovak animator and designer Peter Blaskovic.

This is incredible! I played with it for twenty minutes and was pretty impressed with myself until I noticed the gallery and what other people have done! This is like the sophisticated version of Facebook's Graffiti app. I also like the fluid painter program.

Ech. Java. Sorry, no.

A warning that this link is to a Java app would be nice. Java tends to start unexpectedly and crash things on lots of computers.

That there is a lot of fun. Also a great use of Processing, which is nice to see.

Hhhhmmmm, if it's Java might be cool if he made a downloadable version. I'd like a bigger canvas and the ability to save my files. Those might be an option, but didn't see it.

I've yet to have a java app crash my computer. No one gives warnings for flash content on a page, so I see no reason to tell people that they may be about to experience a common web tech.

Sorry, I didn't realise that Java might be problematic. Mods, please do feel free to add a warning to the post if necessary.

cjorgensen, you can save your files - there's a Save button at the bottom right of the canvas.

Enjoying it here as well -- thanks, creekly! This is an inspiration to check out processing again.

I think the people at Autodesk, who I hear are really friendly about licensing and such things, aren't going to be very pleased.

Instant browser crash. I'm going to assume it's awesome and will once again reveal how little artistic talent I have.

Reminds me of iTunes animations...

[I've never had a Java app crash my computer, either. I have had Java apps crash my browser a few dozen times, and while that's not necessarily a huge deal, it can be annoying. I'm sorry if this is a personal peculiarity; what's always pissed me off is the fact that, completely unannounced, Java tends to start using lots of resources in the background without any way aside from a process kill to stop it or slow it down. However, again, this is really just a personal thing; sorry for shitting in this thread about it. Sounds like a pretty cool thing, even if I'm not willing to install the Java plugin just to see it.]

used the site to practice signing my name for Fed-Ex/UPS packages on odious paper savers.

Save button doesn't work on a Mac -- otherwise, this is wonderful. Thanks!
