Welcome to Dean Cheesman's Blog

So it turns out that I'm one of those people who only posts once or twice a month, but I do read a ton of blogs every day and I "share" the posts I like. So be sure to check out my "shared items" on the right side of the blog. Also, be sure to check out what music i'm listening to on my last.fm page and feel free to click the chat link to talk to me.

Swarm of Fireflies

I was trying to figure out how to use buffers to create more optimized animation and this was what the end result of my tests were.

The red dot randomly moves around the screen as the swarm follows.
