Moving on

Warning: this website is now closed, and comment writing is disabled. I’m moving the content of this site to zehfernando.com. The new domain name makes for a better package name, and is a less suspicious domain for email – as sad as it is, it’s less likely it’ll be classified as spam because it’s not […]

The beginning of the end

Well, 87.5% done. I haven’t talked much about it here, but back in january 2005, I went back to college – only 10 years later than usual (I’ve started working when I was 16 and never actually got a degree – I’m 30 now). The plan was to get a bachelor degree in Digital Interface […]

An initiative for more serious sound control with Actionscript

I had seen this before, but have to admit I ignored it at first (I had the impression it was just some random Adobe conference, based on the name): the Adobe, Make Some Noise initiative is a “campaign for enhancing Flash Audio”. Led by André Michelle, Joa Ebert and Kai-Philipp Schöllmann, they aim to convince […]

Election 2008: Do the right thing

I don’t live in the United States and obviously I don’t vote there, but I believe the decisions of its leader have ramifications on a global scale and, as as many other earthlings do, I hope the best candidate will be picked by voters. In that vein, I’d like to suggest actual voters to read […]

Brazil to host the 2014 World Cup

This is awesome. There’s a lot of work left to be done now to get our stadiums to the level of a World Cup, but I can tell you the entire country will stop for this single event. We already do for World Cups held elsewhere, so this one will be craziness.

REC YOU

Keita-kun – my favorite japanese-speaking person that I can actually understand – has just debuted his first major work for NON-GRID: the website for the REC YOU campaign. It’s a website for the new Sony Walkman, showing features of the walkman, attempting to show that it can do pretty much everything. It’s all in japanese, […]

Tweening in FIVe3D

You may not have heard of it, but FIVe3D is Mathieu Badimon’s collection of ActionScript 2 classes to create 3d geometry in Flash movies. You can see FIVe3D at work at Mathieu’s award-winning LAB website. The big difference when compared to existing packages such as Papervision3D - which is also manages to be its biggest […]

Seeing shades of the future

Other than fixes to broken features and other small things, there are two huge features I see in the future of Flash: hardware-accelerated 3D support, and pixel shader support. This dream became closer to reality yesterday, as Adobe announced some of the new features of Flash Player 10 (codenamed “Astro”) at Adobe Max 2007 (see […]

Great barely known Actionscript blogs

You know, MXNA is such a marvelous community asset, and I read it everyday, but sometimes I’m awestruck by Flash blogs that aren’t featured on it. For some reason, this has become specially common recently, so here’s some of the valuable blogs I can’t get enough, but yet, that most development people would normally miss […]
