Flash :: Coordinates In Distorted Grid

May 31, 2010

I have a grid in a 2D system like the one in the before image where all points A,B,C,D,A',B',C',D' are given (meaning I know the respective x- and y-coordinates).I need to calculate the x- and y-coordinates of A(new), B(new), C(new) and D(new) when the grid is distorted (so that A' is moved to A'(new), B' is moved to B'(new), C' is moved to C'(new) and D' is moved to D'(new)).The distortion happens in a way in which the lines of the grid are each divided into sub-lines of equal length (meaning for example that AB is divided into 5 parts of the equal length |AB|/5 and A(new)B(new) is divided into 5 parts of the equal length |A(new)B(new)|/5).The distortion is done with the DistortImage class of the Sandy 3D Flash engine. (My practical task is to distort an image using this class where the handles are not positioned at the corners of the image like in this demo but somewhere within it).

Flash :: Flex Data Grid: Check Whether Item Renderer Displays Last Row In Grid

Feb 3, 2012

I'm currently working with the OLAPDataGrid component and got stuck at a relatively simple task: I want to style the last row of the grid differently from the rest, so my cell item renderer needs to know whether he's rendering the last row with content in the overall grid, including those rows currently not rendered because they are outside the visible grid space. AdvancedGridListData's rowIndex property only gets me the row index of the renderer relative to the range of visible grid rows, i.e. when I scroll down the grid, a data item with an index greater than 0 gets the rpw index = 0.

Actionscript 3.0 :: 3d Rotation From External Swf Gets Distorted (Flash CS4)?

Feb 5, 2009

I have created a 3d rotation along the timeline inside a movieclip using the 3D rotation tool new to CS4. This movieclip resides inside an swf that will show a number of instances of this movieclip. The 3d tranformation works great when running the swf. BUT! When the swf gets published and I want to load the swf inside a main swf the 3d transformation gets distorted and out of place. Iīve looked at perspective projection and stuff like that, but I canīt figure out how this is effecting a timeline based animation and what I can do to stop it.

Professional :: Sounds In Flash Distorted On Playback Preview?

Aug 21, 2011

I have been working on an animation. I have imported my sounds to the library and streamed them live to the animation. They dont sound as good (muffled and distorted) when I publish the preview (flash or html). They sound fine within flash. When I switched the properties from "stream" to "event" it seemed to work great in the preview. I added a few more sounds and now only the first two mp3 clips sound clear and the rest now sound not so clear. They sound okay but I cant figure out why the rest sound bad? They now all have the exact same settings as the first two..

Actionscript 3 :: Convert Global Coordinates To Local Coordinates Of A UIComplenent In Flex Project?

Dec 19, 2011

I was trying to convert global coordinates to local coordinates of a UIComplenent in my flex project using below code using below code

var gp:Point = new Point(e.stageX,e.stageY); //global point
var lp:Point = uic.globalToLocal(gp); //local point

uic is UIComponent in which I have subclass of Sprite for drawing something I have set the sprite's mouseEnabled and mouseChildren to false to not interrupt the mouse event. above code is within uic's mousemove event where I was tracing the gp and lp gp was giving correct value and suprisingly lp was giving negetive values. when I move the move to the top left corner of uic i expect lp to be 0,0 but it is giving the -width of of uic. I broke my head for hours and ended up finding an alternate by using offsets. Infact my original code was much simpler like this which was same issue

var lp:Point = new Point(e.localX,e.localY);

I am not sure what exactly is causing this problem. the workaround had lot of issues and it creating a mess in my rest of the algorithms.Just now I found even more interesting thing (which is actually weird). for some reason I went and create a new lp2

var lp2:Point = new Point(e.localX,e.localY);

now surprisingly it was giving correct values as expected and I went back and changed the code as

var gp:Point = new Point(e.stageX,e.stageY); //global point
var lp:Point = uic.globalToLocal(gp); //local point
var lp2:Point = new Point(e.localX,e.localY);
var lp2:Point = uic.globalToLocal(gp);

now it is expected to have all the lp, lp2 and lp3 variables to be same but weiredly lp two is giving wrong value and lp2 and lp3 were giving correct. I am suspecting using the variable lp has something to do. I am not sure about that but above proves it so right now I am using lp2.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Converts 3d Coordinates To 2d Coordinates - Difference Between MoveTo And LineTo?

May 21, 2007

I was reading the 'Isometric Transformations' tutorial by Danko Kozar and I have a few questions. I understand what all the code does, but not how it does it. First of all, how does the following code work:

transforms x,y,z coordinates into Flash x coordinate
xFla = function (x, y, z) {
// cartesian coordinates[code].....

I understand that it converts 3d coordinates to 2d coordinates, but I don't understand how. What numbers whould be punched into x, y, and z to acquire certain desired effects?Also, what's the difference between moveTo and lineTo:

red line
style(1, "0xFF0000", 100);
plot(0, 0, 0);
draw(200, 0, 0);

ActionScript 2.0 :: Grid Thumbnail With Dynamic Grid Lists

I really like the thumbnail gallery for its simplicity and beauty.

I'm not looking for any extra fading effects or special movements. Just would love to have a single thumbnail grid on side, with option to have lists of thumbnails by 10 if there is more then 10 pictures or so.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Z-depth On Already Distorted Mc?

Mar 8, 2006

I've got an isometric view of a flat surface. On this surface there are various characters running around and I obviously need to control the depths of each object.

My flat surface needs to be used in two views: top-bottom + isometric.

The original mc is generated in the flat top-bottom mode. For the isometric view, that same mc gets distorted: this way the whole XY coordinates system gets distorted too.

Have a look at this (updated).

So i'd need to create this extra coordinate (is it the classic Z-depth?), and manage to gather information about it...

Does anyone know what the formula would be to calculate the depths of each character (red lines)?

IDE :: CS4 Sound Distorted When Publishing From Mac?

I recently switched to using a MacBookPro (snowleopard) when developing, after several years of PC use. Now, quite often when publishing my swf:s, embedded sounds get all distorted and filled with loud crackling sounds when running the swf (yes, even on different computers). I tried different compressions, bitrates and qualities with the same result. Something is clearly wrong with how my machine compresses sound.

I created a site for a client and they are experiencing something weird with the top links in the base SWF. The links appear to be distorted or doubling up. I don't have anything extra in the MC. And what's worse is that I can't see this effect on any of the computers I have. They see it on their laptop.

I've attached a screenshot from them.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Button Hitarea Is Off/ Distorted (weird)?

Aug 13, 2010

Got this weird issue going on today. The hitarea, the 'interactive space' of some of my buttons is off/ distorted. I created several buttons in a class with the pen tool and converted them to Buttons. I added some eventlisteners, but when I tested my Movie, I noticed the interactive space of some buttons was gone or at a different position or not the size I made it.

I made another button using the rectangle tool, and tested again. I noticed the visual button was at the place I put it, but the 'interactive space' was at the bottom right. Whenever I would move over this interactive space with my cursor, the visual button would instantly go to the place the interactive space is. Whenever I move the mouse out of the interactive space, the visual button goes back to its inital place.

Check it: (press start, 2 times the right arrow, then the window, then go to one of the buildings in the landscape and click on it)[URL].. Here you see two rectangle shape buttons. Hover over them, no interactivity. Move the mouse somewhat down to the right, and weirdness happens.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Image Gets Distorted When Scaled To A Smaller Size?

Jan 30, 2010

I made an SWF file (say X) and I have loaded this SWF file into another FLA file (say Y). With help from this forum, I got to do what I wanted - when I click on a button on the FLA file (Y), the SWF (X) shrinks to a smaller size (about half the size) and when I click on that same button again, X enlarges back to the original size. I acomplished this with tweenlite. THe SWF (X) has a slideshow of images. Now, when the SWF (X) shrinks to a smaller size, the images look very distorted and text in the images are not readable (although the text is large enough to be clearly visible).

ActionScript 2.0 :: Distorted Objects - Modifying Width / Height

Oct 23, 2005

I have a problem where Flash takes it upon itself to modify the width/height x/y values I set objects (MC's) to, usually by less than a pixel. I don't get that.. and wouldn't that mess some things up like when I'm increasing the size of an mc someodd 300 times its original size, then that 0.2 pixel Flash adds in white space could become 50 pixels. Also, when I change the size of x MC, some other MC's will change their size. I can tell because the other MC's are about 1 pixel apart and when I change x MC that pixel is filled in sort of. I noticed some decrease in these problems when I was using whole numbers and x/y values, but it hasn't stopped it completely. I can give an example swf if necessary.
