WebGL Performance Challenge: Render Thirty Frames per Second and Send them to the Server

In my last update, I discussed using Socket.io for the implementation of persistent server connections in our music visualizer app. This week, we inch closer to our ultimate goal of rendering thirty frames per second with Three.js and sending them to the to the server for rendering to video. Great strides were made, but I also Read More …

Persistent Connections with Node.js and Socket.io

Last week, I reported on an important milestone in our music visualizer project: Successful creation (from static files) of an HD video (with audio) using Node.js and FFMpeg. Our ultimate goal: To generate thirty client-rendered WebGL frames per second, push them across a socket to a Node.js microservice, create a video, and upload it to YouTube. Sounds crazy? You bet. But it’s a Read More …
