Mashi does not rely on HTML5 and Canvas so it functions properly in out of date browsers like IE6.
Several modules are provided such as:
- a build in image preloader to ensure of no delays in the animations
- controls to provide buttons such as play and pause
- object and text effects such as text shadows
- plug-ins to extend the functionality of the modules
Mashi apps are loaded into an arbitrary element on your website. They use multiple layers: two layers for backgrounds or fading, one pure text layer and a stage layer for any objects.
