tcastudios | tools for fools free-cad C4D Textures - Textures Transform SWF - framework for reading and writing flash files Transform is an Open Source library for reading and writing Flash (.swf) files. The API gives you complete control over how files are created with access to all the features supported by the Flash Player but yet is still intuitive and easy to use. Here is an example showing how to use Transform for Java to generate a flash file that displays a text field. int uid = 1; int layer = 1; final String str = "The quick, brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." final Color color = WebPalette.BLACK.color(); final String fontName = "Arial"; final int fontSize = 24; final int fontStyle = java.awt.Font.PLAIN; // Load the AWT font. final AWTDecoder fontDecoder = new AWTDecoder(); fontDecoder.read(new java.awt.Font(fontName, fontStyle, fontSize)); final Font font = fontDecoder.getFonts().get(0); // Create a table of the characters displayed. final CharacterSet set = new CharacterSet(); set.add(str); // Define the font containing only the characters displayed.
Cinema 4D Tutorials and Tools for Motion Graphic Designers Congratulations to Michael Rinnan for winning the Five Second Project for March. His entry had a great concept and was outfitted with excellent lighting, atmosphere, camera movements and sound design. We wanted to know a little bit more about Michael’s entry, so we asked him a few questions regarding his workflow and the process for creating his winning piece. Where do you work? I am a 3D generalist at NFL films in Mt. How did you come up with your concept for the Bright Lights Five Second Project? For my concept, my goal was to come up with a quick story I could tell in 5 seconds. What was the most challenging thing about your project? The most challenging part of this project was honestly the lighting. Tell us a little about how you achieved the zolly (push-pull zoom) effect. To achieve the zolly, I initially mapped out the motion of the motorcycles with a spline and then dropped a camera onto that motion path. What renderer was used? How long did your piece take to make?
