trace(‘Is there anybody out there?’)

Not output?!
It`s been a log while since I posted anything. That dose not matter. What makes me sad is that lately my RSS reader gets fewer and fewer Flash posts :(
It`s sad, watching a community slowdown disappear. I miss the times when I was holding my breath for the next flash player release or the next bytearray.org post.
There was a time when you could not keep up with all the blog post and the cool ideas that came with them. My “sheet” folder is full o crazy cool ideas ( facial recognition, text to speak, sound generation etc) the kind of ideas that would shook the world if someone could make a product around them. Pushing the edge, that`s was what it felt like.
What now? No more interesting post, watching post about javascript/HTML 5 is like watching a show from the 90 in slow motion, it`s ‘Déjà vu’ and a “I did that 7 years ago in Flash”. So
So whats left to do for a flash developer that got into development not because he liked to type code into terminals and set up developing environments but because he wanted to do cool stuff. And found a magic tool that could do it all. A tool that teaches you how to use it. A community that vibrates with enthusiasm.
So please tell me were I can find that again?
Anybody?!

Kinect c# and as3

Animation Prin Screen

kinect

I got the new Kinect sensor. Decided to share some of my experiments. I am using prime sense driver along with openNI middle-ware. I build a C# wrapper to get the hand x,y,z coordinates to flash. The wrapper also has the possibility of moving mouse cursor and creating mouse clicks in two ways:
– move “presses” hand in the kinect direction.
– when hands is held still.

Animation Prin Screen

Using the extract method of the Sound Class we can now do a realistic lip Sync of sounds coming from external files or even from the microphone. This demo uses Google translate text to speech service. This allows me to send a string with the text and replies with a mp3 with the readout of the specific text. The playback pitch, temo, and speed of the mp3 file can be set thrum the controls.

Compile Time

Speed Up compilation
Here are a few tips that can decerese the time flash takest to compile your projects.
1. Library itames the less the better ( try to make them load at runtime)
Images check the Use imported JPEG data box for JPEG and use
PNGs/GIFs as “Loosless PNG/GIF” for png.
Sounds – ADPCM/mono-to-stereo/5kHz/2bit

2. Fonts the less fonts embeded the better ( embed only the neccesary fonts)
3. Compiler settings Uncheck “Strict Mode” and “Warning Mode” + 30% in compile speed,
SWF Settings uncheck “Compress Movie”, “Include hidden layers”, “ Include MXP metadata”, and
“Export SWC”, Publish only flash swf format.

4. Code – if your using libraries compile them into SWC files (huge decrese in compile time);
5. Brak up your project into smaller swf files.
6. Use Bit101 MinimalComponents components
insted of flash/flex components.

UPDATE: For big projects it is best to compile the fla into a swc whenever you do library changes and use flash develop with the flex compiler for code compilation
