Misc Tweener links and cool examples to look at

Here’s a few links that are long overdue. Jens Krause has an extension to use contrast, saturation and other color properties in Tweener. It’s based on Mario Klingemann’s ever helpful ColorMatrix class. The next version of Tweener will include similar special properties, although the internal implementation is pretty different (due to the fact that the […]

Tweener transition cheat sheets

We’ll have so much to write about Tweener on the next few days that I figure I’ll split it into a few different posts and go slowly. This specific post is to say that we’ve finally published a more readable list of the available transitions on Tweener, in the form of a cheat sheet. See […]

Tweener for vvvv

File this under the “odd” category: here’s Tweener for vvvv. Check out some sample source code: The patch pictured above makes a circle move from the left side to the right side of the GDI Rendering module, using an easeOutBack animation, in 1 second. If you’re asking “what the hell?”, I’ll just quote Wikipedia and […]

Tweener for haXe

I’m delighted to announce that Baluta Cristian has ported Tweener to the haXe language. It works pretty much the same as the ActionScript versions, although with a slightly different syntax on some cases. Find out more about the project here. There are also other languages that haven’t seen the tweening light just yet – UnrealScript, […]

Many Papervision3D examples

How come I missed this? John Grden has published a lot of examples for Papervision3D on the Papervision3D blog. They’re not only pretty cool, but one of them uses Tweener to animate a target camera. I’ve always thought that learning by example is the best way to do it with Flash, and this new batch […]

Website spotlight: Still-alive

What a load of news on the past few days, uh? I mean, Apollo is now AIR, a new beta version of the Flash Player includes plenty of goodness (including mip map support when resizing images, goodbye Moiré effects!), Apple presents a lot of stuff (including a glimpse of id Software’s next project!)… exciting times. […]

Other Papervision3D + Tweener examples

This is totally random, but just because I’ve seen a good bit of those recently, and because I haven’t posted in a while, here are some examples of Papervision3D and Tweener working together. Most of these are in Japanese, but still understandable for the most part – hey, it’s just Flash in 3d. Here you […]

iTunes-like interface in Flash

Well, it was just a matter of time: Steven D of BLITZ Agency has posted a new experiment on the BLITZ Labs where he uses PaperVision3D to mimic iTunes’ 3d covers interface in Flash. Granted, one of the reasons I’m excited to post about it here is that he also happens to use Tweener to […]

The search for the perfect bezier tweening syntax

Undoubtedly, the biggest challenge when implementing some feature on Tweener is deciding on the syntax to be used - that is, doing the syntax design itself. It can’t be too complex, or else it’ll be too convoluted to use, but it also can’t be too simple, or it won’t be able to do everything it […]

Another one dusts off the bytes

It is my utmost pleasure to announce that my not-very-old chap Nate Chatellier now has a blog. For those of you wondering, Nate is the mind behind the Actionscript 3 version of Tweener; he was the one who ported the original AS2 code to AS3 and while we now keep the AS2 and AS3 version […]
