Starting a ‘Nice Move’ – Series

In a post that will show off a ‘Nice Move’, I’ll post here. Some will be very simple but to me it’s something worth noting. I’ve been an Actionscript Developer for 10+ years and even now I see things that may be classic nice moves, or new ones for me. Feel free to throw one out there.

Refocused

Many crazy things going on…..been working on getting a PV3D based portfolio site up and have been making progress. Along with working with some new frameworks, things are busy but frustrating. Sometimes I think if I would just stick to what I know, I’d live alot easier.

Whole new world

So I’m now getting into the world of photography after purchasing a Canon Rebel t1i. My fiancee and I took a vacation to Jamaica and I had a blast with it. I had the lens kit (15-55mm) for the trip and I could really feel myself ‘maxing’ it out. I’m really thinking about trying to find some classes or some additional information (reading only gets me so far) on how to really use the camera. If I could choose a second career, it’d be photography.

I ended up getting the 28-135mm lens and have yet to play with it. So clear and crisp it’s breathtaking just to take everyday pics. I still can’t get over how fast the auto focus is and just how powerful a DSLR can be. I’m sure I only scratched the surface….

SVN support in Flex builder 3

So I’m looking for a SVN client on mac that will just plain work. I could go parallels and the norm but in searching, I found this:

Catching up on posting thoughts….

I made several notes to blog about some ideas and some issues I’ve run across and never actually posted…..so that being said, there will be a barrage of notes and thoughts in the coming days….

Flash Builder 4

Some really sweet stuff here. Really feels like the Flex editor environment is getting a well deserved make-over. I still have a serious issue with not having the option to have a quick key push to the Flash IDE for compile. Most of my projects now are actionscript based and compile within the editor….but there’s still a need when freelancing to take a .fla file that others are working on and still compile in the .fla.

Testing out a new platform

Well, seems I’m now going to start testing out thePlatform (http://www.theplatform.com/about/) and what media services they offer. Really I’m now in the read-it-like-a-book articles, blogs and just about anything I can get my hands on. Funny thing is, they’re saying they only support swf assets from CS4? ouch, looks like I need to get my hands on a copy. As much as I complained about Brightcove, it was pretty easy to use and develop for. I’m already having a hell of a time getting set up and running some demos……


PC + new Mac Experience

My first post for my own personal pc to mac experience.

Soooo…I need to get a mac for my job. I’m a flash developer and as nice as people have told me macs were, I always heard development on a mac is a little “different”. For that reason alone, I always thought about the newer (since they went intel based) macs and how you can run anything on them. Long story short, I need a mac and I need to get a macbook pro 17in laptop.

Order it, obsess over shipping dates, pay for it, sign for it, open box…

I’m pretty busy during the day and can’t really sit down with it yet….finally get to start getting it set up.  I’ve been doing alot of flex development lately and thus, Adobe FLEX builder 3 is one of the first apps to go. Pretty easy…

I install parallels so I can still have my windows tools and feel ‘safe’. I get parallels and windows 7 beta up and running. Again, pretty easy.

Happy so far? yes…surprised? very…

Details on my experience to come…

Wrapping up ‘Last Exile’

I’m going to watch the last episode of ‘Last Exile’ and I can say unless there is a terrible ending, this series is jockeying for top 10 status. Very clean, crisp and it doesn’t try to do anything it’s not. Nice action scenes, and while the animation is a mix of traditional and CG, always keeps a high standard. Will post once I get a chance to view it…
