[WIREFRAME] DBFWire
« on: May 22, 2011 »
Hey all,

here is my entry for this great challenge. It was hacked together in a rush.

LAUNCH DBF-WIRE

This production makes extensive use of third party libraries (limited time forced me to do so). In detail it uses:

* Away3D as 3D-Engine
* swfvector for extracting/drawing vector shapes and font glyphs from SWFs
* BloomFilter class by Ben Hopkins (Kode80)
* Tweener as Tweening class

Great tune is by Smirk called "They do" ! (Tune shouldn't be subject of voting though)

Keep this in mind, before you vote ;-)

Anyway, hope you like the result.

Best,
benny!

Small Update
- Added a little gimmik mode. Press left mousebutton to enable/disable it.

Final Update (I promise)
- Added great track called "They do" by Smirk
- Removed left mousebutton mode in favor of some syncing

Cool to see another entry and it's even pretty neat for an entry done in a rush! ;) Amazing what is possible in Flash nowadays. Sad, that there's no music, but still, well done! :)

Fair point about the music. Actually I tried out some tunes from the HD - but none of 'em really fitted. Then I thought
about syncing the camera movement to some music - but this would have exceed the production time I had ;-)

That looks really cool :)

I love it that you used the colours from the DBF logo - and the bloom filter is very nice too.

By the way, did you know you can embed flash into your posts here with the flash tags?
Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200] [/flash]

If you are placed in the top 3 we'll need a stand alone copy (zipped) for the showcase.

Cheers Benny!

@Shocky:
Thanks. Yup, I know about the flash bb codes and I really like them. However, since the original flash is 800x600 I
though it would be best to have it in a separate window. Nevertheless, for smaller purposes I do really love the
possibility to embed flash directly into a post.

Zipped project is attached to first post just in case  ;)!

Well done mate ...

How is done the blur ? By adding some particles with high transparancy part ?

Anyway ... it's really nice :)

Well, I hope according to this rule

Please only post finished work, if you update your entry the final one will be voted on.

It is ok, that I updated the file. I just added a little gimmik mode I like to call The Colours I Love.

Simple left click on the stage to enable/disable it ;-)

That was the first and last update I promise!

Thanks. As stated above I used the BloomFilter by Ben Hopkins. The effect can be splitted up into 4 steps. Have a
read at the official blog post by the original author. You could also have a look at the AS3.0 source of it:

Right. Credits for the nice colour-scheme must of course go to Dicab/Alcatraz ;) Another reason why I added
the "Colours I Love"-mode!

This looks pretty neat!
Love the additive blending for that electric look.

Because of those comments...

...Sad, that there's no music, but still, well done! :)

... some music would be brilliant! ...

... I did one final (I promise) update and added sound. In favor of some syncing I removed the left mousebutton
mode.

So please watch the new version for a while to see the FX evolving.

Great track is called They do by smirk. (The music itself should not be subject of voting)

Best,
benny!

Thanks. I feel reliefed ;-) ... indeed I am much more happy now with the final result. The original released was simply too rushed.

Thanks for all the constructive feedback!
