Nice Little Cloud Effect

Came up with a nice little moving cloud effect great for flash sites. The cloud texture was created using photoshop, and the Render -> Clouds, and Render -> Difference Clouds filters. Using the blur tool I created repeatable tiles then transferred the images into flash. The movie consists simply of two cloud images scrolling at different speeds, scales and transparencies. Another nice feature is that the movie is fully resizable up to almost any scale - within reason.

Just click the image to try it out!

Zoom Quilt

I remember seeing this years and years ago, around the time I was first getting into flash. Looking at the date it was made in 2004. The project known as the Zoom Quilt, was a collaboration between various artists and is a beautiful illustration (excuse the pun) of what can be done in flash. Click the image to run the file, and use the mouse to drag in and out of the quilt.
