Creative Coding Podcast

A new podcast has been brought to my attention called the Creative Coding Podcast.

Hosted by Seb Lee-Delisle and Iain Lobb, two names I’m sure you will recognise from the UK Flash scene.

They will be discussing the ins-and-outs of programming for visual and creative applications. The first episode only went out on 30th January 2011, so it is still early days. Give them your support by subscribing in iTunes now.

Here are direct links to the three episodes so far …

Enjoy!

UPDATE – October 29th 2012 – New episodes have been added below …

HexoSearch – A Search Engine Dedicated to Actionscript

HexoSearch

HexoSearch – The World’s First Search Engine Dedicated to Actionscript

I know this has been around for quite a long time now, but I had kinda forgotten about it. It is a seach engine that is set-up specifically to search ActionScript related sites for your search term. This can be better than just using Google because it helps filter out all the non-actionscript content for you.

You can also add HexoSearch directly into your browser.

Beautiful Flash Website

August 6th, 2008 by Adrian

Checkland Kindleysides

This morning I came across this beautiful Flash website. It is for a company called Checkland Kindleysides, who are a design agency based in Leicestershire, UK. It is such a simple yet beautiful website. The animations of the paper cut-outs are gorgeous.

Search for images using Firefox Add-on PicLens

April 3rd, 2008 by Adrian

I recently discovered a Firefox Add-on called PicLens (created by a company called Cooliris) that nicely displays image search results in a seamless scrolling 3D space, and then allows you to view them as a slidshow. See screengrabs below …

It runs very smoothly and I am impressed with it’s ease of use. You can search Google Images, Flickr, Picasa, Yahoo, Facebook and many more.

They also have a WordPress plugin that I haven’t tried yet, but will check out soon.

I recommend you take a look at it.

Jing Project and screencast.com

April 3rd, 2008 by Adrian

I have just come across a really handy and well executed application and website that allows you to easily capture (image or video) and share what you are doing on screen.

The application is called the Jing Project, and is freely available for both Mac and Windows. It has been created by TechSmith who have many years of experience in this field (they produce Camtasia Studio as a commercial product).

Once you have captured your screen as either an image or video it is automatically encoded to Flash video and you then have the option of uploading it to your own area on screencast.com, embedding it on your own page or blog, uploading it to Flickr (images only), saving it as a SWF file locally, or uploading it to your FTP area.

It is very easy to use and it is FREE! I highly recommend you check it out.
