Interested in how motion is portrayed on displays and why 60 fps matters, regardless of whether you're a web developer, Android developer or anyone working with animation? Then this is for you.
A story about the perception of vision, frame and refresh rate, motion blur, and TV displays.

very interesting, the thing about the eye following a single motion is something I have noticed, I used to think it would only look bad in high contrast situations on LCDs (say a ball being thrown across the sky), but I definitely think at 24FPS that sortfo thing just looks bad to me no matter what the contrast levels. Is it that when your eye follows it, it 'accelerates' its computations and is looking at the object more precisely temporally? Like the way when you look suddenly at a clock the second hand can seem to take ages to move?

Hate manually including script files and managing git subrepos? Also hate the overhead of RequireJS/CommonJS/WhateverElse?

Then the Grunt Dependency Resolver is for you.
Over the last few months, my previous team and I at Zynga has been working hard on a more granular, JS-based alternative to Jasy. Without further ado, meet the Instant Play plugin collection for Gr...
