EaselPlugin not working b/c of caching

Recommended Posts

Hi I am trying to use your EaselPlugin, however no matter what I try I cannot tween filters b/c I get an error that the object needs to be cached. Specifically "Uncaught EaselPlugin warning: for filters to display in EaselJS, you must call the object's cache() method first. [object HTMLCanvasElement]" in Chrome. I tried out your sample code in the docs, and I get the same error, even tried using EaselJS's sample code and adding a filter tween on mouse over, with the same error. I'm pretty sure I loaded all the correct scripts.


Can you help me figure out why it's not caching even when cache is there?!

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


Thank you for providing the demo.


I copied the code from the docs and added it to this pen: http://codepen.io/GreenSock/pen/XJNder?editors=001


Seems you were not loading the EaselPlugin and I think there were some other errors too but I didn't have time to hunt them down. 

Feel free to fork the demo I provided.


Happy Tweening!

Thanks for the response! One more question, can the EaselPlugin work on images too? Would I have to put an image into a canvas element? Thanks

Actually to revise my question, I have an image in a canvas but no matter what filter I put on it, it does not change or throw any errors...

Here is the codepen

Thanks again for the demo.


Nothing wrong with your code.

The problem is that browsers can not read or write pixel data on images loaded from different domains. 

I took your code an made sure the html and image were both coming from the same domain.


Look here: http://greensock.com/temp/easel-bitmap/


Attached is a zip. You can run the files in FireFox locally, but note that webkit browsers will still give you problems




As long as  your files are running on a webserver and being loaded from the same domain, you should have no problem as shown in my link above.
