My Flashforum Tour 2005 Lecture Notes

I have uploaded the presentation files of my Schöne neue Pixelwelt session in Düsseldorf so you can have another look at the presentation.

As an extra, you can download the source files for the draw() demo [FLA], the displacementMapFilter() demo [FLA] and the hitTest() demo [FLA].

Of course all the texts of the lecture are either in German or in Actionscript, but there's not much text anyway. The presentation swf is neither load optimized nor is there any explanation what you'll have to click or which keys you will have to press in the different screens. In general: use the left/right key to navigate between the pages and click the active big areas to load the demo. Here are some hints:

In the start screen click anywhere to move the logo.

In the Bitmaps() Screen the active Keys are [R] [G] [B] [A] [SPACE] and you can drag inside the bitmap as well as into the zoomed area

In the attachBitmap() demo you can rotate with the [UP] and [DOWN], scale with [+] and [-], blur with [B] and delete with [DEL]

In the draw() demo you can change the brush with [SPACE], scale with [+] and [-], rotate it with [UP] and [DOWN].

In the displacementMap() demo you'll have to press the arrow button in order to get to the next page as I had do disable the keyboard listener in this screen.

yo Mario,
wonderful job!!
I liked mostly the final part wich reminded me of some of Jared Tarbell's experiments.
I always wondered how to do such an effect (the best one in my opinion is the one with the writings!) could you make a fast tutorial about it? As I'd like to see the FLA but I'd rather love to learn make my own through an explanation! :)
reeeeespect ;)

Thank you! I also like the final part a lot. I will explain its inner workings in my session on the Spark conference in Amsterdam and afterwards I will probably publish the source. But you're right - after I've built it, it also reminded me of one of Jared's works. And indeed, the technique is very similar.

Usually I don't like to ask for FLA's but I love that one and I can't figure out how to do it... :)
Hope you will comment the code lines!!!
thanks again!
