Flash is becoming cripplied on my Mac. It will now only accept fonts I type in manually from the drop down menu and whistles like a swallow on 50% of the compiles with wav files. It's been like this for nearly a month Anyone else get bizarre bugs like this?

Also, I would have gone this year, but it's in September, when I'm back at school. Next time there's a west coast meat let me know, I'll come and see you.

If your wife will allow it that is! <3

Yay! Today I went to my Freshman Orientation and we got our laptops.

We got some sweet HP tablet laptops. Now, that might not be great to have as a personal computer but it is great to get from the school to do your work (or doodle) with.

Hai

So I just released a new animation and it'd be great if you guys'd give it a chance.

Shrek 2

Just watched it and I love it, but I don't think I'd ever enjoy making a film like that. Any of you guys got aspirations in the animation industry or is it just a hobby?

Hey guys, how many rays should a good ray tracing engine be able to handle without lag?

They don't take long to make, or mine didn't but mine isn't anywhere near as good as it needs to be for game use.

Ray Tracer.

That lags because of the lines drawn. Do a fill instead using the hit points for edges.
Anyway, you're doing it wrong. Glaiel meant 3d raytracing that is used for rendering. You don't need to trace every adjacent ray in 2d, for what you have it'd be better to even do it naively for each vertex (or particle, in the case of circles).

Ray Tracer

Looking at your demo, I think I may have made a ray tracer a while ago without realising that it was one, for the sake of dynamic lighting in a game. Is that technically a ray tracer, or does a ray tracer have to individually check each ray rather than working out where it will hit? In my thing it calculates the tangents of the of the circles to the mouse position and draws a shadow behind it.

Raytracing is 3d graphics. A method of rendering by tracing rays of light backwards from the lens toward light sources.

You're just rendering shadows.

Ah, in that case, I'm off to make a real one.

A 2d one anyway.

Which part of 'raytracing is 3d' are you having trouble with? Unless you're talking about rendering a line.

That's not the problem - I stick with what I start to a ridiculous extent, evenwhen it becomes apparent it's going to take years to finish :p

You're right, I opened up flash and thought "wait, what the hell, this won't work", and now I feel like a dickhead. Haven't been thinking straight all day.

I linked to it ages agoooo... hes interning for The Behemoth.

He also did that Tricky skateboard deck at comic con.

I wish he hadnt shown what the cook looks like tho. I like how for most of the film you just see his legs and hands and you kinda make your own impression of what he might look like.
When you finally see him its kinda disappointing.

Yes, it is. I love it when he's screaming and yelling, though. That part would suck without seeing a face, in my opinion.

This. I have the exact same problem every now and then, I have no idea what's causing it. I've only heard very few people complain about this issue. So far I've been able to fix it be altering the sound quality, not a satisfactory solution though. It only happens with .swf files I've compiled myself though, not with random other files.
