The new efforts will help content owners extend their online media efforts, as they look to create new business opportunities and monetization strategies for publishing on the Web.   Specifically, the two technologies being released as open source include: •        Open Source Media Framework (OSMF), previously code-named Strobe, which enables developers to quickly and easily build more robust, feature-rich media players based on the Adobe Flash Platform.(http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/osmf/Open+Source+Media+Framework) •        Text Layout Framework (TLF), which will help developers bring sophisticated typography capabilities to Web applications.(http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/tlf/Text+Layout+Framework)   The press release about t...

Using Electric Rain's Swift 3D 4.5 With Macromedia Flash. It Rocks!

It may only be a point release but that doesn't mean that Electric Rain, makers of the #1 3D modeling software tool for Flash animators hasn't come out swinging. What you'll find with this new release is a tight focus on the rendering options in Swift 3D. Quick Run Down on Swift 3D First I have to admit I'm partial to Electric Rain's Swift 3D. To me, it has always been the small product that stood shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Soft Image, Max and the other big 3D boys. Swift 3D isn't the only Flash 4D design product on the market.

Microsoft Expression Web Has Got Game

In this article you will find out why Expression Web is setting a new standard for Web design and next generation Web Application development. What is the “gap” Expression Web is filling? In 2006 Microsoft began releasing a series of designer focused tools. The big question was: Why? Adobe has the best tools, doesn’t it? There is no doubt that Adobe’s tools are very good, what is clear, however, is that Microsoft is taking design seriously for this to be accomplished Microsoft does need tools that work well with their own tools. An immediate designer’s pain point for Microsoft is ... (more)

What Will Come at Tomorrow's Apple Event?

Roll Up! Roll Up! Make your guess for the Apple event!! Yes, it is that time, the night before an Apple event, where we all take a good guess as what will come tomorrow. What do you think? If you troll through the rampant speculation (and it is speculation as noone really knows) then there are some common threads. So, just to show you I am a gambling man here are  my thoughts for tomorrow: Steve Jobs will present - should I sound like a fanboy and say that this is all we need? There will be a Beatles announcement - it would be stupid not to have one New iPod Touch with faster proc... (more)
