An overview of projects from last year which I liked the most:

House of orange

Perlin noise generative art

Two days ago I continued to play around with perlin noise (see previous experiment). The idea is to let lots of particles crawl over a perlin noise bitmap. Each frame they will leave their trail generating nice patterns like the ones below. I wrote a little tool to influence the curve width, speed of the particles, colors, type etc. Try it out for yourself over here, and show me the result when you’ve created something nice.

Alex – Red 5 live video chat

Last month I’ve been working on a live video chat application for Alex. The goal is to let the current clients of the bank to be ambassadors for potential new clients. The application uses Red 5 to support the live video and chat messages. The whole project consists out of three separate applications:

  • The moderator application
  • The ambassador application
  • The client application
Client application

Moderator application

The moderator application collects all question asked in the client application, after which they have to be approved before being send to the ambassador application. The ambassador answers the question through the web cam stream. Check the video below for a recorded example of the client application.

LanguageTool version 0.5

In a lot of my projects I use my own created language package. The language package manages different pieces of text for multiple languages at the same time. The text is stored in xml files which can be edited later without having to recompile the flash application. It also allows you to switch between different cultures dynamically.

Even though it was already a lot easier to edit text after an application was published, a lot people that had to edit the xml files had trouble doing it correctly, which caused corrupt xml files. Thats the reason why I created the LanguageTool which allows a more visual way of editing and doesn’t allow for mistakes to happen. It is still work in progress, but it should function just fine. There is an update function in the application which lets you check for updates. Download the language package, tool and example here.
