Recently I saw very nice IDE, designed for the HTML5 in the beta stage.
You can work with vector graphics, timeline-based animations, and more.
It’s a Radi!


Check out some examples:

“Color blink” effect with TweenMax

You could create a nice and smooth “color blink” effect for any DisplayObject, including TextField instances with a few lines of the code using TweenMax:

import com.greensock.easing.Cubic;
import com.greensock.plugins.ColorMatrixFilterPlugin;
import com.greensock.plugins.EndArrayPlugin;
import com.greensock.plugins.TweenPlugin;
import com.greensock.TweenMax;

/* run this line only once (as example, you can put it into the main document's constructor or your initialization function) */
TweenPlugin.activate([ColorMatrixFilterPlugin, EndArrayPlugin]);

/*and use this line later to start blinking */, 1, {colorMatrixFilter:{colorize:0x74F88E, amount:1}, repeat:-1, yoyo:true, ease:Cubic.easeInOut} );

By the way, be careful with TintPlugin or ColorTransformPlugin while tweening TextFields with TweenMax – you can notice some lags or jerks in the tween animation.

This is a great project!

To be short – just try it and enjoy nice visuals for the music from the soundcloud or form your hard disk.

So, this is a first post here.
Just launched this blog and personal site with one recent experiment.

Great thanks to:
Dan Gries for his perfect perlin-based snowfall engine
Christian Corti for his awesome AS3 Amiga Soundtracker Module Replay class (FLOD)
(it could be a flashModPlug, but sources or swc are not released to the public yet)
0xFFFFFF and Flastar for support and useful comments
– my girl for patience and care while I was busy with this experiment

If you like that Amiga snow and want it’s source – just comment here and I’ll see – maybe I’ll clean it a bit and prepare for a public.
