How we built it


An ImageBitmap object represents a bitmap image that can be painted to a canvas without undue latency. An ImageBitmap object can be obtained from a variety of different objects, using the createImageBitmap() method. ImageBitmap provides an asynchronous and resource efficient pathway to prepare textures for rendering in WebGL.
