Busy Update

I’m still weeding my way through the project I mentioned in my other post and trying to get things wrapped up. I’ve got another two weeks on it ruling my life so until then you probably won’t see much going up here. I do however want to encourage people to not just vote on the […]


Skribit Widget Added

I’ve recently been very busy with client work that is taking up all of my time (and if I’m not working on it, I’m spending my free time brainstorming it) so I’ve had very little time to dedicate to anything else. I did, however, manage to add a Skribit widget to the sidebar.


AS3: Papervision3D FreeCamera Movement

View Example Get Papervision3D [Tutorial] Get TweenMax Download Source One of the things that I was curious about when using Papervision3D was how the camera moves around and tracks other objects. Originally I set up a Camera3D object and moved it around to look at other objects but that wasn’t playing well with the way […]


Tip: Flash IDE Text Strokes

I’m currently working on a project where the designer LOVES to use stroked text. As you probably know by now, there is no text stroking in Flash unless you bring the asset in already stroked from another program or you break the text apart and add a stroke to the broken up shapes. There is, […]


AS3: DistortionTweener Done Easier In Papervision3D

View Example Get Papervision3D [Tutorial] Get TweenMax Download Source Well, the first thing I have done in Papervision3D is a replica of what I essentially did with the DistortionTweener (or actually the reason I made the DistortionTweener). It is much easier to do and takes a lot less to do (the original DistortionTweener, with research, […]


Papervision3D FDT3 Template

After writing about Eclipse/FDT3/Papervision3D and my heavy usage of templates to speed up my workflow, the natural thing to do was to create a Papervision3D template to use in conjunction with FDT3. You can grab the template from the Downloads page at any time (if I update it in the future, the newest version will […]


Setting Up Papervision3D in Eclipse/FDT3

I’ve recently decided to take the plunge and start playing around a bit with Papervision3D. I’ve seen too many cool things coming out of that camp and I wanted to get my hands down and dirty and experimenting with the possibilities to move my work forward. I use Eclipse/FDT3 on a Mac so getting up […]


Sponsors

As you can see, I’ve added sponsors to the right hand sidebar. Not only did I pick sites that I think are actually worth signing up for, but if you sign up by clicking one of those you’re helping the site so please do if you have some free time. It’s well worth signing up […]


Setting Up Eclipse & FDT3

There are some things that I want to write about on this blog that I feel like I can’t do as of yet because some of them are geared more towards Eclipse/FDT3 users or at least the way I use those tools. That being said, I figured I should give a rundown of how I […]


Extend Links & Downloads Updated

I’ve updated the Extend links in the right sidebar to include a bunch of engines you can use to extend Flash’s capabilities. Stuff that’s been around for a while like 3D engines as well as some of the newer physics engines that are coming out. This will also help me in the future to keep […]
