Cinder is a powerful and intuitive tool for professional creative coding. Built in C++, the software is used for programming graphics, audio, video, image processing and computational geometry.
Cinder began its life at The Barbarian Group as an in-house resource for building interactive projects. Since the agency release Cinder to the open source community in 2010, the software has been actively used by independent artists, technology companies, advertising agencies, academic institutions, visual effects companies and design firms across the world.
In June 2013, the Cannes Lions Festival awarded the software the first ever Innovation Grand Prix, an accolade which recognizes the pioneering technology platforms driving creativity in advertising.
