Bezier Curves 3D Effect


X-Com posted on their labs a nice experiment called SmokeFX, based and inspired on the PS3 Boot Menu. All the process and code is available to download/read. There are lots of possibilities to implement this kind of effect, it can be used to introductions, menus, backgrounds and many more tasks.

Take a look and have fun!

Distortion Effect Using the Displacement Map Filter

Cadin Batrack posted a new tutorial at FlashTuts+ about the AS3 DisplacementMapFilter class. He created a cool effect using this class so that you can use as a rollover effect for your buttons. However I believe this effect can be even more explored to achieve any other option you could have in mind. Take a look!

MP3 Flash Player with AS3



Not sure if I ever gave this link here for this mp3 player tutorial! Anyway while surfing some tuts today I found this complete Flash mp3 player tutorial with actionscript 3.0, this player has all the main features you will see on the most complete players around web, you probably should implement a new design, but this tutorial will open the doors to you if you want to develop something similar.

The player has features has volume slider, skip music, pause, play, stop, playlist, time and more. MP3 files are loaded from a XML file.
