Camtasia Studio 5

December 19th, 2007


First impressions
I’ve been working with Camtasia Studio 5 on our video tutorials, and I can say that I’m impressed. Camtasia it’s a program that enables you to capture video from your computer ad voice or even make a powerpoint recording.

It has a lot of great features: effects that enable you to add different video or audio effects like highlight cursor, highlight click and mouse sounds or typing sounds.

Publish with Camtasia Studio
Another cool part of Camtasia is the Camtasia Studio.
Here is where the magic happens, edit by adding callouts, title clips, captions and to smooth the video you can add transitions with different effects.


Using callouts
You have a multitude of callouts to select from and if you want to try something new create your personal callout to bring a personal touch to your project.

Transitions are used to make your video smoother, by using different effects while your video is running. You have a variaty of transitions to choose from as well.

The good
It has a very user friendly interface that makes it possible for first time users to complete the desired task in a fast and easy manner. Sometimes you would like to zoom in and zoom out as you click, now you can with the Autozoom option which will auto focus the center of the camera point on the clicked object.

I enjoy working with Camtasia and it’s abilities really help you when you’re making tutorials or other videos, it’s a great program that will make your life a lot easier when it comes to video recording and editing.

The text animation component

December 6th, 2007

Innovating the Flash world again – TxEff

The name says it all. It’s a text effect component for Flash that will change the way you look at text. It’s specially designed for Flash users and designers that want a quick and easy way of animating a text without any coding. The free basic component contains 3 patterns. The number of patterns doesn’t limit you because in each pattern you can try numerous params. As you will find out for yourself this will just open your appetite for more ways of animating.


TxEff website – a new approach

You don’t have to explore every possible combination of params, we want to help you enrich your number of effects, all you have to do is access the TxEff website This is not only a website it’s practically an effect DataBase, on which every time a TxEff user discovers a new effect, he can share it with the rest of the TxEff comunity.

If you go online and see something you like just copy the effect Id and paste it in your Component Inspector and you will have the desired effects without having to think of them yourself.

Enter our TxEff community and get all the benefits that come with it.The component itself is very user friendly. All you have to do is to write the text, access the TxEff component and tweak the params to get the desired effect, drag and drop the effect on text and you have a fully animated text.

TxEff is the result of months of development and the feedback we got from our clients. We spent time thinking what our clients would want and offer them that special something. Everyone on the team came up with innovating ideas on how a text effect component should look and act. The result is a very user friendly, time saving component that doesn’t require any coding.


TxEff’s special offer, ends on December 31 2007

Get the full licensed TxEff which contains a minimum of 50 patterns by March 2008. We’re continuously developing new and complex patterns to suit your artistic need and all this for only $99.97(promotional offer).

There’s more, if buy it in December you will get MCTE for free, or if you have already purchased it, you can get it’s value in discount coupons.


Last week we finally launched the ActionScript 3 versions of our V3 components. So now, when you buy aV3 component, you get the AS2 and AS3 versions (AT THE SAME PRICE 🙂 ). The differences between the two versions of the same component are not so great. They consist mostly in the way the events and event listeners are used (the AS3 versions use the new method with an event class for each component and constants declared for each event). You can find more details about the new way of handling events in the documentation corresponding to each component. However, a few of the components, will also have new properties and methods (this is the case for the AS3 version of the Loader Pro V3 component, which has a new feature: reflection).

For each component, the documentation lists properties and methods used by both the AS2 and AS3 versions and, separately, new properties, methods and events used only by the AS3 version. We’re also working on the AS3 version of our tutorials, so, soon enough, we’ll have them available on the site. Further more, each component has on its page (“How to use” section) issues from our Knowledge Base regarding that particular component. For now, only the AS2 issues are available, but as soon as we translate those issues to AS3, we’ll make them available, too.

Regarding the trial versions of our AS3 components, we will release them only when the encryption software used by us will be available for ActionScript 3. So, now, if you plan to try out our components, you only have AS2 trial versions available (which won’t work in an ActionScript 3 project).

We are really glad that you (our clients) like our components and we hope that the new AS3 versions won’t let you down.

And after a few weeks of careful planning and development, here they are: 6 new great patterns for our best seller MovieClipTransitionEffect component. Now, our customers have 25 patterns at disposal (9 embedded into the MCTE component and 16 external – you can see them here). And, even more: we’ve created a package that contains all the patterns, the MCTE component and the LoaderProV3 which you can buy for only $199 from here. For this small fee, now you can add stunning effects to your flash photo gallery, flash banner or flash presentation. Stay online, more to come…

Flash Lite 3.0 Components?

September 14th, 2007

I’ve been reading a lot of blogs and information about how the Flash Lite 3.0 will look like, when will be launched and what language base will be finally used. It is very important to know all these in order to create high quality flash lite components to be used along with high quality applications that would run on either Symbian, Linux, WindowsMobile or some stand alone OSes.

From our inside information, we believe that Flash Lite 3.0 will be a processor limited VM2 based, AS3.0 driven and will include those streaming capabilities that everyone claims for. Because there is an increasing number of devices (both mobile devices and less processing devices like digital interfaces for households), we started to think of cool animation lite components such as the award winning MCTE V3 flash component, and of course about some UI animated components.

Unlike Flash 8 and Flash CS3 Components, the basic Flash Lite 3.0 Components requirements are very important and those developing lite 3 components should be aware of these when designing and developing them.
Here are some good points in developing successful Flash Lite 3.0 Components:
1. Keep the processor safe, non-intensive use of the processor is required, for some devices, the same app/component should measure device capabilities and reduce the calculations till the processor and display device is safe.
2. Keep a small size(less than 200 kb per app) in order to have the app running on more devices.
3. Communication over the internet will be at some points restricted, keep in mind this aspect and design connection-loss error handled components, also monitor connection, pause and restart connection when possible without blocking the device.
4. The components will need to be especially crafted for touch screen devices, joystick and reduced-size keyboard interactivity. No mouse events will be triggered on most devices, onpress and onrelease events should be used to display of rollover and rollout effects, etc.

We hope that in less time after Adobe Flash Lite 3.0 official launch, we will also launch out V3 Lite components. Meanwhile we are getting close to the point of releasing the V3 AS3.0 Flash Components for Flash CS3.

With the advent of ActionScript 3.0 and Flash CS3, Adobe took out the possibility of direct access between AS2 and AS3 clips. The next option (besides communication through servers and web services) is local connection. Until now, if you’d create a clip in Flash MX2004 or Flash 8, using AS2, and inside that clip you would load another .swf file (that too created with AS2), both clips would be able to have access to each other’s objects and functions. This is not the case anymore with the new AS3 files. An AS3 clip will not be able to access any objects or functions defined in the AS2 file that it has loaded, and the loaded AS2 file will not be able to access objects and functions defined in its’ parent, the AS3 clip. The only way for the two movie clips to communicate is to use the LocalConnection class. For an unexperienced user this could be a little troublesome: loading the AS2 file, verifying that it’s been correctly loaded, creating LocalConnection objects in both files and trying to connect them in order to be able to execute functions defined inside those files and on the objects existing in those files.

For this reason we developed the ActionScriptBridge components (ASBTerminal for AS2 and ASBContainer for AS3), to ease the work needed to be done so the two AS2 and AS3 movie clips could communicate. The user has only to drag and drop an instance of the components in the AS2 and AS3 clips, define the functions he needs to call and use the run method of the components to call the defined functions.

Now this is still a beta version, but it’s working pretty well. The ASBContainer loads an external AS2 .swf file and the two clips attempt to communicate with each other using LocalConnection objects. The user has only to set the instance names for the two component instances and set the source file to the ASBContainer instance. All the rest is done by the two components: loading the AS2 file and initiating the communication. The connection name for each of the LocalConnection objects is set automatically by the ASBContainer instance. Each connection has a uniquely generated name, encrypted using MD5. Once the ASBContainer has established a communication channel with the ASBTerminal instance, it will not accept any other connection. Each ASBContainer instance should load its’ own AS2 file and there shouldn’t be two ASBContainer instances loading the same file.

Further development will depend on user feedback on this project, so any ideas or comments are welcome.

Interesting subject isn’t it? How can anyone track a product like a flash component that is not capable to connect to a server and to update information about it?

Flash components unlike other software applications and plug-ins are not track-able. Once a customer get access to a MXP flash component package file, he can virtually give it away to all it’s friends, and nobody will know. There are no unique serial numbers given along with the flash components, there are no key to unlock a free trial versions, there is no way you can secure a full featured flash component.

Some of our flash components may look like something that you think you can do in 2 days of work. However I must tell you that each V3 flash component was developed for more than one month and there are various people who work on every single one of them in order to get it done properly. Under these circumstances it is very important for to keep tracking the usage of every component and it is very important for us that our customers will respect the law of copy and distributing software, so they would respect the hard work that we’ve done for all these products.

During last year we’ve tried something new, because we wanted to know how our customers managed to use our flash components, and we couldn’t get them all to write feedback emails. So we’ve embed some text in some of our flash components in order to see their results on Google; after months and months of indexing they started to get back to us, and by simply googleing the text included inside the components we’ve been able to track back all of those flash files that were using those text linked flash components (of course only those that have been indexed).

By placing a simple search in Google, looking for filetype:swf jumpeye you can easy find hundreds of flash works that embed a late version of waves effect, the loader pro v1.2 and a version of square effect. Starting with V3 components we’ve embed abstract IDs for each components in order to get track of where and how are our components used, and in order not to harm any of our component users, so they don’t need to link to us from inside of their work. This way we have fair information on how our customers managed to use our products, and what side of every product they used most.
