Backdrop - Introduction


Click the window below to see a video preview of Backdrop's output.

Backdrop creates moving backgrounds for film, video, presentation, TV and animated cartoons. All backgrounds are configurable by selecting foreground and background colours, and by being able to change the number of things on screen, or the rates of change of their various parameters. All images are generated in real time using trigonometry, transforms, and statistics.
