p5.js | Typography | shearY() Function

  • Last Updated : 16 Apr, 2019

The shearY() function in p5.js is used to shear a shape or object around the y-axis. The object is sheared by the amount specified by the angle parameter. For proper functioning of angles should be specified in the current angleMode. The objects are always sheared around their relative position to the origin and in a clockwise direction.

Syntax:

shearY(angle)

Parameters: This function accepts single parameter angle which stores the value of angle.

Below programs illustrate the shearY() function in p5.js:

Example 1: This example uses shearY() function to shear the object around y-axis.






function setup() {
  
    // Create Canvas of given size
    createCanvas(780, 650);
}
  
function draw() {
      
    // Set the background color
    background(220);
      
    // Set fill color
    fill('lightgreen');
      
    // Set stroke width
    strokeWeight(5);
      
    // Set shearY function
    shearY(PI/6);
      
    // Finally Draw the sheared rectangle
    rect(30, 30, 400, 300);
}

Output:

Example 2: This example uses shearY() function to shear the object around y-axis.




function setup() {
      
    // Create Canvas of given size
    createCanvas(780, 650);
}
  
function draw() {
      
    // Set the background color
    background(220);
      
    // Set fill color
    fill('lightgreen');
      
    // Set stroke width
    strokeWeight(5);
      
    // Set shearY function
    shearY(PI/9);
      
    // Finally Draw the sheared
    // circle of radius 80 
    circle(height/2, width/2, 80);
}

Output:
