Real-time lipsync experiment

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

I’m dusting off an old experimental go at real-time lipsync and thought I’d share it here. Just paying attention to low vs high pitch and amplitude at this stage. For now, click on the mouth to load a local mp3 (preferably containing only speech for best effect). Click again to save a flv capture of […]

Sound fun and TEDx

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

I’ve been gearing up to perform/present at TEDx in Columbia SC on Monday. Super excited but still lots left to get done. So… I figured it might help keep the juices flowing if I shared some simple code fiddling related to what I’ll be doing there as a tiny teaser. I’ll post more after the […]

Was going through some old experiments and decided it might be fun to post some over the next few days.

having a (plasma) ball

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Been so bogged done with contracts and yicky work lately that I was quite pleased to break away for an afternoon to help a friend with a fun little flash piece he needed. He wanted a plasma ball effect for a project that a few folks ’round here are involved in. Had a dandy time doing something more […]

procedural coding in AS3

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

OOP is swell and all, but I feel procedural coding still has its place. This is particularly true when you’re not entirely sure what you’re about to make ,or when you have a problem to which you haven’t yet worked out a full solution but are ready to stab at it one bite at a […]

Me 1st Flash9/AS3 experiment

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

I finally had a long enough break in my schedule to start fooling around with Flash 9 preview and as3. Better to come in to it late than never, I guess. Anyhow, below is my first experiment. Nothing that couldn’t be done in as2, but it was a nice learning experience to put it together […]

more IK attempts

Friday, June 23rd, 2006

Though I haven’t had much time to mess with me IK experiments, I have made some progress. I figured I’d share a more current attempt. If anyone else is working on IK puppet-type character experiments, let me know. I’m happy to share what little I’ve figured so far, and would love to know what techniques […]
