Making a perlin sound AS3 depending on a sound spectrum

AUGG logo The January session of the AUGG (Adobe User Group Geneva) was the first workshop made by the group. Thierry presented us Flex 2.0 by making some nice example (code to come). I presented a fast introduction to AS3 by showing & explaining the code of my Perlin Sound Spectrum Visualizer (example 1, example 2). Here’s the code I presented, itโ€™s slightly different from the two precedent examples.

Warm thanks to the Nomades (specially to Haim) for hosting our meeting ๐Ÿ™‚
If you are interested by some more AS3 tutorials, Iโ€™ve made a few video tutorial about actionscript 3.0.

Photoshop CS2 Lessons

Photshop Cs2 snapshootMonday at the Nomades (IT school in Geneva), I’ll be giving Photoshop CS2 lessons. It’s already the third time I teach an Adobe technologies. My first time was with Flash, my second time with Premiere Pro and now Photoshop. I feel myself very lucky to be able to change the topic at each time (even if it’s more work). Really if you once got the opportunities to give lessons, don’t hesitate it’s great, and as a student, that I am, it helps pass the frustration to be always the one that learn from others ;p

So if you are in Geneva (Switzerland), speak French, and want to learn Photoshop call the Nomades(+41 22 328 07 70) ASAP.

A Flash Decompiler that works!

Eltima Flash DecompilerI had a strange call with a new customer who asked me to edit the work of another flash developer that has left without leaving them the fla… I told him that it was crappy to find a good swf to fla decompiler (as I never found a good working one). But I told him that I would find a solution anyway.
In fact the solution was very easy to find: Eltima Flash Decompiler! It works just great and allowed me to make the work in only 1 day. It creates me a nicely made fla with the AS2 code, images, sounds, texts. What do you want more?
The only bad point: it doesn’t work for AS3, but let’s wait that Flash CS3 is release ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lift07, challenges and creative solutions of technology in our society

I had the luck today, to assist to a presentation from Laurent Haug, the guy behind Lift Conference and coComment. He made a very interesting talk.

Lift image

LIFT is a gathering of talented observers, explorers, and builders who discuss the current challenges and creative solutions presented by emerging technologies. LIFT is three days to face cutting edge business models, bold predictions, radical thinking, and get new ideas to inject into your own part of the planet.

LIFT has a simple goal: connect people who are passionate about new applications of technology and propel their conversations into the broader world to improve life and work.

I couldn’t afford to go last year but this year I won’t miss it!
The program is incredibly interesting ๐Ÿ™‚
If you happen to go to this conference send me a mail (hello AT metah DOT ch) so we can meet there. It is the 7-8-9 February 2007 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Tracking mouse leaving the Flash Player (AS3)

[kml_flashembed movie=”http://blog.metah.ch/image/example/mouseTrap.swf” height=”200″ width=”300″ /]

Actionscript 3.0 allow us to detect easily when the mouse leave the Flash Player, making it possible to avoid strange behavior of our clip. For example during โ€œdrag and dropโ€ it can be useful to know when the mouse leave the stage. To do this you just have to use the Mouse Event : mouse_out ๐Ÿ˜‰

stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, outHandler);
Were outHandler is the function called by the listener.

To have the movie work you will need the New Flash Player.
