A note on the demos: they will work in all modern browsers (Chrome, FF7+, Safari, IE9+). I’m working on making it compatible with IE7+, specifically the alpha filter.
You can download the library and examples at https://github.com/ntibbles/SimpleAnimation
Here’s the first, just using SimpleSynchro. It’s adapted from Lee Brimelow’s “GotoAndLearn” blog on Flash’s 3D carousel.
You can see in in action at: http://noel.tibbles.ca/demos/examples/05.demo.3d.carousel.html
In this demo you can control “live” some of the variables. It’s a very simple script that rotates all the image on stage based on mouse movement. Play around with it, view the page source and download it from GitHub if you like it.
The next demo is using SimpleTween. This particular demo won’t work in FF yet, due to the tweening of individual background x and y properties. This demo tween’s each tile, chooses a random tile and then expands the tile and moves the background.
You can see it in action at: http://noel.tibbles.ca/demos/examples/06.demo.tiles.html
Again, you can view the source to see how it works.
I’m planning some tutorials on using the Library in the very near future. Hope you’re interested in this and I’m looking for people to contribute.
