Next-gen video

Filed under: flash — michaelangela @ 1:05 pm

Good site with lots of good links on examples of innovative yet still useful Flash. For example a portable green screen “lab”… well, red screen in this case.

Next-gen video (JohnDowdell):

Next-gen video: Adobe Flash Player is more than a traditional video player. It treats video as a first-class media type in an interactive, programmable environment. Grant Skinner shows where this is going… he greenscreens an actor against varying backgrounds, but then applies vector graphics which interact with the actor… falling leaves settle on his arms, buildings light up in concert with his motion, the actor wipes away steam which fogs the screen, a virtual ball is tossed between two actors. This is heavy stuff. But it’s where our abilities are taking us next….
