Storing PGraphics to List of Images?

Hi all,

I want to “pre-render” some PGraphics to a list of images, what is the function to copy the PImage as an image (similar to how image() treats PGraphics as parameter as an image).

Here is what I want to do in code:

let pg;
let flipbook = [];

function setup() {
  // ...
  bg = createGraphics(300, 300);

function makeFlipbook() {
  for (let i = 0; i < 200; i++) {
    // ... draw stuff in 'pg'
    flipbook.push(pg.copy()); // ???

function draw() {
  let frame = frameCount % flipbook.length;
  image(flipbook[frame], 0, 0);

Note that I attempted to use .copy() because that’s how to copy the PImage from the graphic in Processing. But that doesn’t seem to work here. Please help.

Thanks in advance.

I did not test it this, but your call should be like this:


The intended behavior of get() should be the same in both P5.js and Processing Java.
