From Michael Trenkler:
This article is all about performance using a webcam in Stage3D for e.g. augmented reality applications.
Just tested the performance (desktop/mobile) of the new RectangleTexture vs. Texture class for Stage3D in Adobe AIR 3.8 Beta this week, and I’m pretty happy with the results. It will be fun to work with this.
From Jon Alexander:
Kalley’s Machine Plus Cats is one of the Best New Apps in the AppStore starting September 11. We did it with straight-up Flash and Air.
I’ve used Flash since the 90s. So we just used the old school Display List and vector graphics to be able to scale to any resolution. The same exact stuff gets pushed to the iPhone and iPad. We’re amped because that means we’re already set to have crisp graphics for the iPhone 6 Plus.
The vector graphics allowed us to do some shape tween animation that you can’t get with bitmaps for unique stuff like a boiler that swells from pressure.
It’s exciting for us to see Apple take such an interest in our app. And it’s cool to know that it happened with Flash.
