Hello List,
A while back I remember someone asking about RegExp (regular  
expressions).
I found this website. Now it is not flash based, it is javascript,  
but interesting none the less.
May give people hints on how to construct their own in AS or even PHP  
for that matter.
I am new to lists in general, so if this is bad form, let me know.
I just like sharing :) and thought this could help someone.

Best,

Just contemplating the strategy for dynamically superimposing an image

Any ideas to achieve this? (Just the final video rendering bit, you

Because it is by design. Don't like it? Use getObjectsUnderPoint and

The problem appears to be that when I mouse over a nav widget it activates a
fn called onMouseOver. When I comment out that addEventListener, then the fn
onPressHandler for the onClick works as desired. So the onMouseOver is
running interference. How do I eliminate the interference? Obviously I need
to add something to the onMouseOver fn, but what? Right now all I do is
re-call the nav fn to change the color of the btn. I tried this with no

e.currentTarget.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onPressHandler);
e.currentTarget.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, onMouseOver);

2010-03-12 Thread kennethkawam...@gmail.com
Yes, basically that. If it's still image it's very easy, but it's a
video - so that the perspective changes and the mask (e.g. to handle
something over-wrapping in front of the image) changes due course.

I probably need to draw the mask by hand frame by frame and control
the perspective of the image by AS. This is not going to be an easy
one... ;)

[Flashcoders] mxml to AS3

2010-03-12 Thread Anthony Pace
I only do this after using catalyst (beta 2) and there is a ton of mxml 
over a thousand lines or so, that I just don't want to have to filter 
through, but so far, what I have been doing is publishing the project as 
an swf, and the using a decompiler to convert it and its embedded 
elements to readable AS3 with class structure intact, and then output to 
a folder that contains the fla and all used classes in the usual 
subfolder tree style.


Using this method makes it so some variables are referred to by their 
location instead of their friendly name, and going after the embedded 
elements can sometimes be time consuming; thus, I am wondering if there 
any other commercial converters out there? or if someone has figured out 
how to use the flex sdk to just do a conversion instead of publishing?

If you don't mind your stream being downloaded without the required 
branding or possible news event embedded into the video, plus the added 
bandwidth overhead is not a concern, than an overlay is perfect.


If there are branding concerns, or you work for a site that would like 
to reduce bandwidth and send news events cnn style, then you will have 
to know how to modify the stream before you send it to the client.


If new events aren't required, but the branding is, then you really only 
need to do a separate encoding that includes the content.


Ads at cue point, using a number of methods, can easily be told to fire 
based on the time per frame.

Re: [Flashcoders] Passing Call To Child

I am wondering if you know when to use currentTarget vs target

e.currentTarget is the object that you applied the eventListener to
e.target is the object that fired the event.

and if you are looking to get the child, then make sure not set 
mouseChildren to false.


e.g.  try using this to test what object is actually being targeted.

trace(e.currentTarget.name + is the variable name of the object you 
applied the listener too.);
trace(e.currentTarget + is the symbol instance name of the object you 
applied the listener too.);

//
trace(e.target.name + is the variable name of the object that fired the

Re: [Flashcoders] Fwd: Dynamically superimposing image onto video

2010-03-12 Thread Anthony Pace
For the first sentence I meant to say that applying an overlay at the 
client is fine, if you are not concerned with your stream being ripped 
without branding, possible cnn style news events, or captions being 
included.


If things need to be live and targeted you will want to do things at the 
server; otherwise, if server load is a concern, and you do not need to 
be changing graphics live, then doing it during encoding and prior to 
uploading the content to the server might be the way to go.

agreed, cause:
MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, and mouseChildren set to 
false makes it so both target and currentTarget return the object the 
listener was applied to.

I realized you must be right. So I pulled out the pertinent code 
and have
built a test case. Sure enough, it's working properly. Now I'll 
figure out

what was breaking it.

The problem appears to be that when I mouse over a nav widget it 
activates a
fn called onMouseOver. When I comment out that addEventListener, 
then the fn

onPressHandler for the onClick works as desired. So the onMouseOver is
running interference. How do I eliminate the interference? Obviously 
I need

to add something to the onMouseOver fn, but what? Right now all I do is
re-call the nav fn to change the color of the btn. I tried this with no
luck:

e.currentTarget.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onPressHandler);
e.currentTarget.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, 
onMouseOver);


TIA,
Susan

hi helmut,
ya, i think it's unfortunately still not very widely known. it was a new 
venture for o'reilly, and actually quite a risky undertaking due to the 
log-cabin setting, but i was determined to capture the learning from 
a friend approach that i've found so helpful in my own career.


if anyone has any feedback on the content (or the pricing), o'reilly and 
i would love to hear it. o'reilly is constantly trying to evaluate new 
forms of training, and viewer/reader feedback could help decide whether 
they do more videos in a similar style.

hi all,
as the author of an oop book myself, i have to admit that books aren't always

here are a bunch of other free options:

in fact, there's also a video version of Essential ActionScript 3.0 available called

once you're up to speed on the basics, examples, practice, and a helping 
community like flashcoders should take you the rest of the way.

if you're doing any flex work, i find peter dehaan's examples to be a fantastic 
resource:

and for targeted questions, the stackoverflow community is really helpful:

happy coding!

Hi Susan I cannot recommend any OOP book but I can recommend Lynda.com. 
Lynda.com has some great video courses, like
http://www.lynda.com/home/DisplayCourse.aspx?lpk2=759
Which amongst other covers OOP fundamentals and common design patterns.

Re: [Flashcoders] Fwd: Dynamically superimposing image onto video

2010-03-12 Thread Kenneth Kawamoto
The server load is not a concern but it will not need to be live 
streaming at all, so I am planning to do the dynamic image overlay - 
triggered by cue points and animated by script with possibly 
frame-by-frame hand drawn mask - at the client side.


Thinking about it, there's no need to upload the user image to the 
server - just do everything at the client ;)

For the first sentence I meant to say that applying an overlay at the 
client is fine, if you are not concerned with your stream being ripped 
without branding, possible cnn style news events, or captions being 
included.


If things need to be live and targeted you will want to do things at the 
server; otherwise, if server load is a concern, and you do not need to 
be changing graphics live, then doing it during encoding and prior to 
uploading the content to the server might be the way to go.

If there are branding concerns, or you work for a site that would like 
to reduce bandwidth and send news events cnn style, then you will have 
to know how to modify the stream before you send it to the client.


If new events aren't required, but the branding is, then you really 
only need to do a separate encoding that includes the content.


Ads at cue point, using a number of methods, can easily be told to 
fire based on the time per frame.

Steady camera motion when shooting initial video would create script
