How it works
The Ai->Canvas plug-in enables Adobe® Illustrator® to export vector and bitmap artwork directly to an HTML5 canvas element that can be rendered in a canvas-enabled browser. The plug-in provides drawing, animation and coding options such as events so that you can build interactive, well-designed canvas-based web apps.
To install Ai->Canvas, download a version for Windows or OS X, and extract the Ai2Canvas.aip file to your Adobe Illustrator plug-ins folder. Be sure to re-start Illustrator if it’s already running. That’s it!
Almost any Illustrator artwork can be exported to a HTML5 canvas element. Where canvas lacks support for a specific feature, Ai->Canvas automatically rasterizes the artwork to a bitmap and properly positions the image on the canvas.
Bring your artwork to life by adding animations to your Illustrator drawings. Ai->Canvas supports rotation, scaling, fading, and movement along a path. For more advanced users, add triggers that start one animation when another animation completes.
