Starling, Feathers, and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA

Posted on May 27, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on May 27, 2015

As mentioned in my previous post about Apache Flex® and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA… I have also recorded a free series of videos around Starling, Feathers, and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA. You may be aware that I have a full, extended course on using Starling and Feathers to build a mobile application using Adobe AIR published over atLynda.com: Building a Mobile App with Feathers and Starling. That course is much more involved but this set of videos should be a good introduction to using these frameworks in IntelliJ IDEA.

Apache Flex and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA

Posted on May 26, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on May 27, 2015

I have recorded a free series of 10 videos around Apache Flex and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA. I believe that moving forward, IntelliJ IDEA is the best IDE for learning and using Apache Flex. Adobe Flash Builder used to fill this role, but Adobe has discontinued it’s free licensing to students for some time now… and will most likely not be updating that tool in the perceivable future. As a bonus – IntelliJ IDEA is an absolute beast that can handle just about anything ;) Apache Flex, Flex and Apache are either registered trademarks or trademarks of the Apache Software Foundation in the United States and/or other countries, and are used with permission as of 2015.

Tabletop Whale's Guide to Making GIFs

Posted on May 13, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on May 13, 2015

Tabletop Whale (Eleanor Lutz) is a designer/animator/biologist who makes amazing moving infographics and charts.  This is a beautiful GIF infographic about how to create a GIF.  She has others but, as her site only stretches back to mid 2014, this is one artist to keep your eye on (especially if you are a science teacher).

Drum Machine

Posted on May 11, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on May 11, 2015

The HTML 5 Drum Machine is (as the name suggests) an online drum machine. With a range of different drum sounds (crashes, snares, kicks, etc.), drumkits (Hip Hop, Electro, Acoustic, Techno, House) and editable volumes and tones it is great for composing across a range of tempos and styles.  Beats can be exported as WAV files which can then be imported into Adobe Audition as drum tracks. It takes a little bit of playing around with to get the hang of it but it is well worth the small investment in time.

DPS Overview, resources to the presentation

Posted on May 10, 2015 by Lukas Engqvist Last Activity on May 10, 2015

These resources were created for the presentation: CREATE DIGITAL PUBLICATIONS FOR MOBILE DEVICES WITH INDESIGN (6 May 2014)  Video Presentation Even though the DPS single edition is no longer available it is possible to create and upload a DPS folio to an iPad or iPhone and then interact with it using the Adobe DPS Viewer app. In the video it is explained the difference between a DPS that is tree structured (like a webpage) and the linear story of a Fixed Layout ePub. If the Articles are created and an InDesign book is used this makes it easy to structure the information so that it can be exported either as a DPS or as an EPUB (via the book flight menu). The assets are made available so that you may adapt and improve the presentation. The photographs are my own and you may use in educational setting. The video was student work, due to file size limit I did not include it so relink to any video (Adobe Premiere Clip is a perfect match for those that are new to video and want to ma... Read More

How To Use The Sandstorm Photoshop Action

Posted on Apr 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on May 3, 2015

Full disclosure before we start: I am a particle junkie. Show me a Photoshop image where particles explode out of the subject or an After Effects video that uses particles and I am hooked. A couple of days ago I came across Brad Goble’s Behance portfolio and was amazed at what he had done. The thing about using particles in Photoshop, at least for me, is the effects are not easy to create. That is until I discovered that Brad’s effect, known as Sandstorm, is a simple, easy to use Photoshop action that is available for $4.00 over at the Envato Marke

PhoneGap Jumpstart

Posted on Apr 25, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Apr 25, 2015

I’ve always found that getting started with PhoneGap if you hadn’t used it before (and sometimes even if you have) to be an exercise in frustration which even when it all goes well… takes some time and dedication.  Well now we have some really nice tools to make the whole process much, much nicer! This tutorial guides you through a workflow using the desktop app, Brackets, and the mobile app - much better :)

Adobe DPS Curriculum - Unit 8 - Create an app and publish folios

Posted on Apr 23, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on May 6, 2015

The focus of previous lessons has been on creating folio content. This is where most designers and production artists will spend most of their time. But a folio by itself isn’t very useful. A folio needs an app in which to reside. A folio will be “published” into an app. How to create an app and publish a folio is the focus of this lesson.  This is a lecture course. Because of the expense and complexity associated with getting developer accounts and certificates, these steps are best demonstrated and explained to students, rather than running a lab environment.  This is Unit 8 of the Adobe DPS Curriculum. Find the full curriculum syllabus here. For more resources for educators using Digital Publishing Suite in the classroom, check out the DPS for Educators portal.
