MD in HK

Filed under: About Betaruce — betaruce @ 11:59 pm

Today Macromedia (HK) arranged a gathering for some IT guys with Mike Downey (Product Manager of Flash) and Jen Taylor (Product Manager of DW). It’s really cool to meet with some MM officials and to express our ideas :) . I’ve also shared some of my Flash 8 works :)

MD is really nice. It’s always great to hear what MM thinks and their plans for MM products. Learn a lot today :) and make some new friends.

Tomorrow will be the Studio 8 launch seminar in HK. So bad that I cannot spare my time to attend this great event :(

For those who want to know more about Flash 8, read this article by MD: What’s New in Flash Professional 8

PlasmaFractal + PixelDissolve

Filed under: My Flash Programs — betaruce @ 7:27 pm

Just renovate my old piece of code - Plasma Fractal - with the new pixelDissolve method of the BitmapData class.

Just sit and enjoy the fractal :) It will change itself and the transition is done by pixelDissolve.

Note: It is a bit CPU intensive

Click here and choose Plasma Fractal with PixelDissolve

Old piece of code in new Flash

Filed under: Using Flash — betaruce @ 1:26 am

When I tried some AS codes from my previous works today in Flash 8, it didn’t work properly but it did work fine before. Finally I find out the problem pertains to variable declaration.

In previous version of Flash and Flash player 6, the following code is valid:

var t;
// Output: 10

However, it won’t work since Flash MX 2004 or Flash Player 7.
Therefore the code need a simple modification:

var t=0;
// Output: 10

I think most people know about the stricter rule of variable declaration now in Flash. So be careful when you want to publish your old codes with new Flash.

Don’t miss the new Flash8 Easing Control!!!

Filed under: My Flash Programs, Using Flash — betaruce @ 6:40 pm

I’ve been working on the new Actionscript so much that I forgot to try out the new features for Flash animation. And here it is: The new Easing panel!


Click here for the corresponding swf!

I find it very useful, as I can create complex animations with only 2 keyframes! You would need to create several keyframes for the above animation if you are using previous versions of Flash.

You can set the position, color, filter, scale and rotation of the MC to change accordingly to the curve in the panel. As you can see in the above e.g., the Glow filter, rotation and position of the circle change accordingly.

I think this feature is great and can add lots of effects to animations. We can make complex animations simply by altering the curve. However bear in mind that this panel only appears in Flash 8 Pro.

Flash-Javascript-JavaApplet Communication

Filed under: My Flash Programs, My Processing Programs — betaruce @ 1:07 am

with the new ExternalInterface class of Flash 8, Flash can communcation easily with Javascript.

This example shows how we can control an applet with Flash with the help of Javascript.

To view the above page, you may need to have some security settings of your Flash Player.

There are 2 functions in JS. They are responsible for calling functions in the applet. One function place the food randomly in the applet, while the other returns the number of living bugs when it is called.
