Interactive Music Video with Steye

December 21, 2009 by

As soon as I saw an early version of the music video shot in Ottowa for the single off his new “In a Cabin With” album, I thought; this should be interactive. So now three months later; here it is.

Read on for some behind-the-scenes technical details. Read the rest of this entry »

Fatty Bum Bum game

I’m proud to announce that our first game in collaboration with Hanazuki has just been launched. The game plays an important role in an installation that Hanazuki did for the Cinekid festival.

Working with the internet legend Niko Stumpo has been a delight, so we definitely are not going to stop at one game, we are already cooking up the next one 🙂

Papervision3D + Jiglib Dice Demo

June 1, 2009 by

Papervision3D + Jiglib Dice Demo

This demo was made shortly after the initial release of Jiglib. It was a study of how far you can push realism in the sence of rendering and animation. Here CompositeMaterial is used with a BitmapMaterial and a GouraudMaterial. This is much faster then using a ShadedMaterial. All you need to do is modify the GouraudMaterial to use a transparent light map. Andy Zupko’s ShadowCaster is used for casting the die shadows. Jiglib is used for the 3D physics, also slightly modified to facilitate fixed timestep. Unfortunatelly the end result is still far from the desired 60fps. Hit spacebar too see the stats, check it out.

UPDATE: Something troubled me when checking the performance in the browser with Flash Player 10 compared to Flash Player 9. On my machine FP9 ran at approx 40fps but FP10 hardly reached 25fps. Changing the wmode from “direct” to “normal” fixed the performance issue in FP10. Especailly in Firefox the performance difference is significant. Still on my machine FP9 seems to perform slightly better then FP10. Mental note: next time take more care in setting the proper wmode.

Vectorvision fonts, the easy way

January 1, 2009 by

James Height is at it again (that’s the guy who wrote the svg parsing code I used for vectorvision). He’s just released some code that allows you to use truetype fonts without the need of creating Font3D files. Check it out here on James’ blog.

Christmas with Y & R

What if Joseph and Mary had access to faster modes of transportation when seeking a place to give birth? And what would have happened if they had taken a wrong turn leading them away from Bethlehem? Those are questions that have been occupying the minds of theologists for centuries. Finally, with the help of today’s latest 3D technology, Y & R, Flashfabriek and Barcinski & Jeanjean have tried to answer those questions. Have a look.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Flash Player 10, quality and speed

Flash 10 panorama

Ralph Hauwert has recently revealed some of his magic showing off the shading power of flash player 10. I was really wondering about the texture quality of the new 3d goodness so I’ve put a small skybox demo using Ralph’s branch of papervision for fp10 and this stunning shot by Roger Taylor this panoramic shoot we did of an landscape installation by Anne Walk.
