ZIM 016 Launched!

ZIM 016 has launched! There is a new site banner featuring a spiral Shader and little slider at the right by the Dr Abstract icon . The link to new features is on the ZIM 016 at the left of the banner and it goes to https://zimjs.com/016.html This is another very exciting update featuring:

The bubbling videos have been released - what we will try is to do a post on each one and that way we can discuss them in their own threads. But if you want to see them, they are here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCIzupgRt1pYtMlYPtNTKCtztFBeOtyc0

Wow some of those shaders are amazing! You also need a special relationship with maths to create them. Great work integrating into ZIM!
