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 […]

Tweener extensions

The fair lady time has been specially rigorous with me as of lately, not giving me too many opportunities to fall into the hands of my mistress of spare time experimentation and open-source maintenance. As a result, I haven’t posted here in a while and, worst of all, there are a lot of Tweener updates […]

Three Tweener tips

Arthur Debert, co-author of Tweener, has just posted a few tips on using some specific Tweener features. Sometimes, a few features not strictly related to tweening may not be immediately clear, so this is the kind of stuff that’s pretty useful; I still have to write similar posts too.

Devon O. Wolfgang has a long tutorial on building an image gallery using Papervision3D and Tweener. Ricardo Cabello has updated his audio visualization effect demo (also using Papervision3D and Tweener). The new one is here, and he promises the source soon. Looking very cool. Coincidentally, Donovan Adams also has a demo using PV3D (and its […]

New Tweener versions (stable and beta)

I’ve uploaded the latest stable version of Tweener to the download list – the current stable version is now 1.26.62. This version basically adds better error handling by way of onError and add a nifty inheritance-style parameter to new tweenings, base. I’ve also uploaded the new new version – 1.31.66 – to the subversion repository; […]

Yuichi Tateno has a blog

Yuichi Tateno, the mind behind JSTweener, now has a blog in english. Among other things, he has just posted a new special property modifier for the actionscript version of Tweener – one that allows higher order bezier curves, allowing developers to create cubic beziers (and beyond) instead of a series of quadratic bezier curves like […]

Sandy and Tweener

I’m really late on this one, but here it goes: the new version of the Sandy 3d engine is out in the wild, and one of the changes on the API is that properties are now directly accessible. As a result, creating tweenings with Tweener is pretty easy; Dennis Ippel has a bunch of articles […]

This is great: meet JSTweener, an independent port of Tweener’s syntax and functionality to JavaScript. Here’s an example. It’s done by Yuichi Tateno (aka secondlife), my second favorite person that I can’t really understand.
