Flash Player 10 Resources

Theres a lot of hype right now over Adobe's Flash Player 10, codename "Astro". After checking out several resources, I have compiled a list of places that have the most recent information on Astro and additions to the API. Their is an unofficial Flash Player 10 Debugger, but I'm not sure if it works or not. I look forward to doing some interesting motion graphics effects with the new filter capabilities and the Drawing API. I wish Adobe had released this a few months ago. I would like to implement the native z into the current Wunderman project.

Adobe Labs:
Featured Demos and Videos
Getting Started
Pixel Bender Toolkit - New image processing language by Adobe
Targeting Flash Player 10 Beta with Flex SDK 3.0x

1. Senocular - Flash Player 10 Drawing API
2. Peer to peer, Speex and UDP now in Flash Player 10
3...and there's more to Player 10

Central Park Conservancy, Celebrating Greensward

We recently launched a probono site for Central Park. What I like most about this site is the accuracy of the navigational map. I originally developed it with x positioning as well as y, but the client wanted us to only slide up and down - Personally, I like the former. None the less there were some intricacies that you wouldn't notice at first. Firstly, I had created a loading map queue (Thanks Dan for helping out on this), The time line became some what of a nuisance, because of the option of dragging and clicking. The real joy of this was mainly the math for the map and making sure the main view displayed accurately when you have scrolled over "mini-map" with the navigational view.
