Mosaic Font Generatorspeak

Design : Writing with shapes.

December 3rd, 2010

Long time ago I needed to create a text message where the font was filled with icons.

The idea was quite simple, find a point over the text, and then expand a rectangle checking that the four corners are still overlapping the text.

Now I decide that is time to use bitmaps, and blendModes, to allow not only rectangles, but any other shape over our text, and this is the result.

Sound Generation With ActionScript1 comment

Lab : Generate sound with code.

September 5th, 2010

After seeing what some speakers are doing at the FITC in San Francisco, I decided it was time to use flash to play with sound.

After some research around internet, ( Andre Anaya, bit 101 and Andre Michelle ), I finally created my own sound class, now lets see how it works...

First of all, lets understand how does sound works taking one of the simplest sound forms, a note, represented by a sine wave.

Lab : Light Particles Interacting with Obstacles.

August 10th, 2010

Time ago, I found a experiment with particles on the site "asluv.com".

I like it, but it was a little slow, so I decide to change the code a little, and just avoiding the use of sprites, I got a great improvement on the speed.

This AS3 experiment uses a BitmapData to determine whether the particles should change their speed in function of the background color of the bitmap.

There is a GlowFilter and BlurFilter applied to the particles, to create a nicer visual result.
Playing just with the filter, we can get very diferent and nice result.
