DirectXtras release new 3D transitions

DirectXtras this week announced a brand new set of 3D transitions. This is the second set of 3D transitions from DirectXtras.

Tomer Berda said

“DirectTransition3D Xtra is a collection of high quality, hardware accelerated, platform independent transitions for Macromedia Director, Authorware and Shockwave. DirectTransition3D Xtra, Set II, features the following customizable transitions:”

• Black Hole: Simulates the before image sucked in to or blown out of a point.

• Circular Wipe: Simulates the before image being wiped in a circular shape to reveal the after image.

• Color Fade: Simulates the before image fading in to a color and fading out to the after image.

• Four Part Door: Simulates the before image opening in a four part door to reveal the after image.

• One Part Door: Simulates the before image opening in a one part door to reveal the after image.

• Ripples: Simulates circular ripples oscillating, expanding and wiping to reveal the after image.

• Rotating Boxes: Simulates boxes with the before image on one side and the after image on another side rotating.

• Simple Fade: Simulates a simple fade from the before image to the after image.

• Simple Wipe: Simulates a simple wipe in any direction from the before image to the after image.

• Squeeze: Simulates the before image squeezing into an outer edge to reveal the after image.

• Three Part Door: Simulates the before image opening in a three part door to reveal the after image.

• Twist: Simulates a plane with the before image on one side and the after image on the other side twisting to reveal the after image.

• Two Part Door: Simulates the before image opening in a two part door to reveal the after image.

• Two Way Wipe: Simulates a wipe from any two opposite direction converging to reveal the after image.

• Zoom: Simulates the before image zooming in and the after image zooming out while the images fade.

EuroTAAC 2003

Nearly there. Only 4 weeks until I fly out to Germany for this year’s EuroTAAC conference. A few more days and we start another wonderful week of information sharing, meeting friends old and new and seeing what incredible things other people do with Authorware.

This year we have decided to change the format of the Authorware challenge. Instead of announcing the challenge right at the start, then consigning a few hardened coders to spendthe rest of the conference cloistered in their hotel rooms dreaming up outlandish code that “only took four hours” ;-) we will not announce teh exact nature of the challange until Saturday afternoon. Teams will have 2 hours to complete the task before presenting for judging.

Integrity eLearning have been kind enough to sponsor the challenge, and are providing the prizes for the winning competitors.

EuroTAAC – Go on. You know you want to …

Somebody broke my template

Grrrrrrrr. It seems Blogger had hiccoughs last week. My page no longer fits right in the window. Or maybe I broke the template? Not sure yet. I keep tinkering, trying to see if I did something. Normal service will resume as soon as I figure out what buttons to press! Or something.

AHA!!!! I found the problem. It was me all along. The bug report below contains some code. The last 6 lines of that code **should be all on one line** but if I write it like that, of vourse they insist on BEING on one line in the browser. So be aware of that if you are copy/pasting the updated text for your AW ini file.
