I found this old GameOfLife thing i did. Cool stuff, brings back some good memories. Always fun to find cool stuff from the past. to start.. fill in a few cells by clicking on them. then press start. to restart press start again and start from scratch. This movie requires Flash Player 9
Did a little encoding / decoding test to get some grip on that subject and to experience the crypto coolness :). Cryptography is pretty cool. The DiscoveryChannel mentioned bilateral encoding last night and it got stuck in my mind… Thus my experiment. For this first experiment the class only supports all normal alphabetical string characters( […]
Also taking skinning as option within the sphere. Here is my first test. Its not 100% optimal but its getting there. Could do with a more precise skinning algorithm. For now this will do. Use the mouse to rotate the sphere. This movie requires Flash Player 9
Added distance from light factor. Playing around with the system and havin fun \ o / You can use the UP arrow to brighten the light and the DOWN arrow to dim it. This movie requires Flash Player 9
Have been working on 3D lighting. Still have to implement a distance from light variable. Good review on how that works in Keith Peter’s book: ActionScript3.0 Animation Need to plugin a better particle screenPositioning algorithm for better calculations with the light. Still cant be asked to use triangle meshes. I will stick to building up […]
Improving performance by calculating how many particles are needed in each ring. Did choose for squared particles, because they fill up better. Implemented SimpelZSorter from theflashBlog.com. Thnx Lee! This movie requires Flash Player 9
Want to know more about 3D and the maths behind it. Thus i started to study the most basic form in 3D… the sphere. Here is my first test. Testing drawing a sphere in 3 axes, mapping out flat sprites on the sphere and also testing out collision detection in 3 axes. Still need to […]

Bought Keith Peters’ new book: Advanced AS3.0 animation. It rocks! Working on first chapter now: gridcollisions. Cool stuff. Here’s my first test.
Build, script & compile flash online! Who needs flash ?! http://wonderfl.kayac.com/
I have been working on a project with lots of round cornered cubes. They all have to scale so i apply scale9Grids. Making a new Scale9Grid everytime and not seeing the grid frustrated me enough to come up with a solution to all my problems. Thus the birth of the Scale9Helper class. This class can […]
I bought a new book called “Math and Art“. Its very cool and gives you an indepth look on the Maths within some art. – The first chapter starts with Circle-Circle intersection. I wanted to know how this works and how you code it so i did some research and here is my result: Drag […]
Finally after alot of recoding and loooong nights of no sleep, AirCube v2 Beta is finally up and running. Using Flash 10, AIR 1.1 and PV3d2.0 it works like a charm. Ofc its still in beta stage so i am debugging like mad Go download it! > AirCube Project Page < Have fun!
After a long night of partying,lot’s of beer drinking and finally headaches, i started on the 3rd day of Flash on the beach. Here’s my recap. Keith Peters. Keith was the first speaker of the day. It’s always fun to start the day with some heavy maths. Keith dazzled us with some chapters in his […]
Here’s a recap of the second day of Flash on the beach Brighton 2008. Aral Balkan. The starter of the day was Aral Balkan. Aral planned a session about the Google App Engine but he switched to another presentation called “5 rules for Hedonistic Creatives”. In this presentation he talked about the way Actionscript is […]
It’s been a long day full of cool stuff. Here’s a recap. Marco Casario. Marco talked to us about making mash-ups. Especially about making mash-ups within Flex, Flash or AIR. He explained how to make use of the Flickr, Yahoo, Twitter and Youtube api’s. Very cool en also interesting. He also showed us some resources […]
Today i arrived at Brighton.. for Flash On The Beach Brighton looks good and its very warm here… I got a hotel right on the boulevard and its very nice. I like the vibe that is hangin’ around here. Lots of beer and fish and chips everywhere Well tomorrow FOTB starts and i got my […]
In my previous post i had made a reflection class which makes a nice and need reflection for you. But when you want to reflect an animated clip it did not animate the reflection. Well….. i have made an upgrade on that Reflection class and now you can pass in a parameter if it’s animated […]
Been working on a project with lost of reflections. I made this class to help me create reflections… – Usage: var refl :Reflection = new Reflection( your_clip_to_be_reflected, reflection_height, reflection_strenght, reflection_yOffset ) ; addChild( refl ); – – Reflection class: ?View Code ACTIONSCRIPT1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 […]
Seb-Lee DeLisle has posted a very nice and very short presentation about the way texturing is done in 3D engines. Most explainations online are in text so it’s hard to imagine how it works. Seb’s presentation consists only of images so you can actually see what is done. Very cool and educational! Go view Seb’s […]
A few days ago Adobe announced the release of FlashPlayer 10 beta 2. Within this release they have fixed alot of bugs.
