Video-ANE

ANE for iOS to play videos on top of everything.
Work in progress && iOS only at the moment.
Displaying video in a AIR mobile project using Starling is complicated:
Flash display list Video object is not efficient
StageVideo may not have any things related to Starling on top of it.
VideoTexture are still not available on mobile.
The goal of this ANE is to display a video, on top of everything. So let’s say it’s a StageVideo reverse class.

Kalley’s Machine Plus Cats
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.

Cyberix3D - A free online 3D game maker

I love 3D graphics, and all the possibilities it brings, and so I’ve decided to create a 3D game making site, that enables any one to create their own 3D game.
The Game Editor is written in AS3 with Away3D and Starling frameworks. It is targeting the Web/Android platforms.
The difference between Cyberix3D and other similar sites is that on Cyberix3D you don’t need to know programming, and still create a complex, high quality professional game .You can create your game on any computer, where ever you are,  without downloading and installing any program, and then share to any one you want, or run it anywhere.

LocaleManager AS3

The LocaleManager provides dynamic localization support for ActionScript AIR only apps. It takes care of loading/parsing resource bundle files (*.txt) and returns localized resources based on the locales provided from the external JSON file.
Because it is using FileStream, it currently supports only AIR apps.

Adobe Air StageVideo Stage3D Issue

iOS Development using Adobe AIR and Flash/AS3

Make sure to test on a device to reproduce the issue:

  1. Stage2D turns opaque/black when NetStream is attached or disposed
  2. Tap any blue circle to toggle Stage3D visibility on and off
  3. The blue circles should overlay transparently on the Stage3D scene (AIR logo)
  4. Tapping a blue circle removes it from the display list Removing a whole row/column of blue circles reveals the Stage3D beneath the 2D stage
  5. Tap the green buttons from left to right to see the issue
  6. Button1: Instantiates the NetStream - so far, so good
  7. Button2: Attaches the NetStream to StageVideo - 2D stage goes opaque
  8. Button3: Makes Stage3D invisible and plays a video - 2D stage behaves normally again
  9. Tap a blue circle to see normal 2D stage behavior
  10. Button4: Disposes the NetStream - 2D stage goes opaque
