Go! asap! Tween!

So what ? You did not try GOASAP yet? You should definitely give it a try. analogd, I have been using it for weeks with Adobe Flex 3 Beta and AIR Beta and I must say that it is as good as I guessed in my first post about GOASAP animation framework. .

Go tweening framework video tutorials serie started

Moses Gunesch its author just started a serie of video which will bring you through simple steps to the wonderful world of GOASAP. To start with, you should check this one, it is very clear and will give you a good introduction to the world of Goasap.

Go asap Forward tweening

Things have evolved since my first post about goasap. Donovan Adams from hydrotik.com published Hydrotween a tween parser made for GOASAP, it currently supports every basic features of Fuse Objects and also give control on filters related properties like blur dropshadows, glow and few additional useful things like volume, pan, text. Donovan also started PapervisionTween which gives you control on Papervision3d 2.0 properties (basic at the moment). I used Fuse with Actionscript 2 to tween papervision objects properties for example in this small commercial project and it performed very well. I am looking forward to trying Donovan’s class. Moses Gunesch started its simple Tween BlockTweenMG and related parser BlockParserMG. He is preparing a video tutorial about it. Personally I have started working on my own tween focused on ColorMatrix and bitmap manipulations. The GOASAP community is structuring, a SVN server will be setup to gather related goasap projects and code samples.

Go asap afterword reverse transition

You used Fuse with Actionscript 2? Go with Goasap Animation framework for Actionscript 3, it is even better, more flexible and of course quicker. In the future it will provide you support for Physic Engines and Collada within the same well-thought animation framework.
When I am writing these lines Go is version 0.4.4 and the official site has been redesigned.

Edit 01: The second video tutorial is available now: #2 Build a Fuse-like Tween & Sequence Parser in Minutes .

Thanks:

Personally speaking I owe a lot to Colin Moock work, and I went through every sequel of Flash comfortably thanks to each of his books, whether the new features were limited or innumerable. As an anecdote, I would like to add that I discovered one day wandering on Colin Moock’s website in 2002 that analogd’s first release was put as first entry under the section Interface Design, back in 98…
This project was named Virtual Pulse produced for an independant music label. It was released on September 1998 with Flash 3 and honoured on the WDDG Flash Challenge in October 1998 as best website.
