example.png Saw a rather excellent tutorial for fireworks over at and had to have a go at it in Inkscape (which i code on now and then). Worked pretty well, with a couple of minor hacks required to get the shadow to work, so I thought I’d put it out here in its inkscapified version for anyone else to learn from. Holding true to the inkscape tradition its as an SVG so you can play with the image as its built step by step to understand whats going on.

both the hosts I had this on have died since I wrote it, so have updated the above link. the updated one died too, so put it on google.

Note you can simply apply a blur rather than messing about with the interpolate these days.

    John, what license is applicable to the tutorial in case somebody 😉 wants to translate the tutorial and publish it?
