analogd’s workshop at the Flash Summer Camp Berlin

Next week-end I am giving a workshop in english on Real Time 3d in Flash in Berlin during the Flash Summer Camp Berlin. I am very excited about it and I am looking forward to meeting a lot of interesting people and following exciting presentations. It is an event targeting developers and designers, which is already full booked.

The Flash Summer Camp Berlin is organised by flex-lab.de and Adobe, it is part of the Official Adobe Flash Platform Tour 2009, which promotes Flash Builder 4 and Flash Catalyst.

With recent publishing of official Beta of Flash Builder 4 and Flash Catalyst, it is an interesting time to discover from Adobe’s people the latest improvements and strategic choices. Duanne Nickull, Adobe Senior Technical Evangelist, will present two Adobe Official Sessions at Flash Summer Camp Berlin.
I will be particularily interested to ask how will Flash Platform fits in Adobe Suite Scheme… Would they be a Flash Platform suite? Would it be part of other suites? Would it be part of CS4 Master Collection?
I am also looking forward to attending to Andre Michelle’s presentation and several others. Meet you there…

Workshop’s teaser:Think in 3D: opening a new world of creative interactions

Flash and 3D has always been something that innovative people tried to gather. Unfortunately it has been complex to achieve because of past performances.

From fake 23d with 2d objects, to pre-rendered Vector 3d animations, from pre-rendered 3d videos to Real Time 3d, from Real Time 3d to 3d physic, fps games and Augmented Reality. 3d and Flash has been coming a long way. Real Time 3D APIs are around the corner for some time now and it is quite impressive what people behind these have achieved and how far it goes.

This workshop targets a wide range of people from Designers to Developers. The objective is to introduce people to the 3d world. Its well established concepts will be presented to help people have a better idea of the big picture. Then it will be used as a starting point to explore Flash Real Time 3d. This workshop will go through following themes:

Flash and 3d short history

3d world concepts

Presentation of the most popular 3d APIS including current state and future expectations

Comparison of these APIS

How Flash CS4 and Flash Player 10 intervene in this game

Definition and usage of the various source formats handled by these APIS

Presentation of the tools gravitating around these APIS

Getting started examples and hands’ on code presentation

Conceptual introduction to advanced features

Piece of advice and References

Meet you there…

Adobe Hair Head Application update

Adobe HAIR Update

A few month ago, I have “Launched Adobe Hair”. I have not been having much time to blog about it, I would like to explain it and thanks people who blogged about it. Check out the interview Michael Chaize did at the Adobe Max Press room, below:

So what?

I had got this idea a long time ago. The initial purpose was to make an Haircut including analogd ‘s logo with a few other graphic elements. Then to be photographed from the back and design a Greetings Card for analogd’s clients. Unfortunately the end of year is always very busy and I never had time enough to release it.

I thought it was a good idea to make it for Adobe Max. It was also a way to “celebrate” my 10 years of Flash productions (started with Flash 2) and using the Adobe logo was also a tribute to my years with Adobe Softwares (Started with Photoshop 2.0 and Illustrator 3.0). In addition I decided to make the whole looks a bit 3d using perspective lines extending the logo because I have been keen on 3d depth within Flash productions for years now.

Thanks

All in all I had a very positive feedback about Adobe HAIR at Adobe Max. It helped me to meet people or to let people find me back. Often in those crowded environment it is hard to find people back and I have observed that some has chosen flashy shirts to be easily identifiable. For me it played the same purpose and was very efficient even at the Adobe official party.

Now it is time to thank Michael Chaize who took time in the Adobe MAX Press room to take footage of Adobe HAIR and made it public.
Guess who hold the camera?
Thibault Imbert icon wink Adobe Hair Head Application update image By the way big up for his work on AlivePDF which I used a lot recently and which is just great, more on that later…

I was also honored that Ben Forta blogged about Adobe Hair Head Application. Thank you icon wink Adobe Hair Head Application update image

I know that it isn’t something that much original and nothing to be proud of icon wink Adobe Hair Head Application update image and I am not, it was just a matter to thanks people and say that I had fun preparing this (one hour and an half to the Hairdresser) and meeting People at Max Europe 2008. So stay tuned on analogd’s blog to receive Adobe Hair updates…
