Well was not submitting anything for a while. Was busy with various stuff.

Today decided to try and remake [link] using code base from [link]

Hover over controls to see hints, you can also save image as transparent png by clicking.

I would like you to notify me if you use it somewhere and mention that it was made in this little app if possible(I guess in some commercial works there is just no way to do it) :) Anyways posting it under CC attribution license :)

You can check your version of Flash here [link]
Also which browser do you use?
Am just curious for experience of why it may not work :)

it's nothin to do with the browser, I'm workin on a computer thas about 8 years old or so, it has difficulty loading Google man... I was able to play some of the other ones on it, but I went to our slightly younger laptop and checked it out, cool stuff dude :D

Just sad listening to some music while playing with this and got an idea ^^
You should totally make a "music video" app with this like:
- Upload your fav music
- animate and record mouse activity to the music
- make layers of these recordings so you end up with many flares "dancing" to the music xD

Thought it would be cool and it seems it wouldn't be too hard for you ^^ But I dunno of course... ;)

Good one anyway!! :D

I was thinking to make some recording available but there are two problems with what you propose. Firstly any such recording would ad some lag which would ruin this... Secondly last time I checked did not found any AS3 video encoders that allow to turn series of images in to a video and attach a audio track to it.

I didn't think of recording it for videoplayback or such. More like recording the data. :) so no need for encoding. Of cours that would mean more particles each time a layer is added. Just an idea if you chose to work on it further :P

BTW I gave source of this thing to guy working on onyx-vj... Some soft for video/audio/flash effects mockups or something :) Not really shore what they are doing there and how it works but somehow close to your idea no?

Awesome!
If I try to use about 2300 particles at the same time it usually gets me epic lags! D:
I'm using AS 2 though, I heard thatv AS 3 is faster ad has some neat features to make BitmapData run faster

Thanks.

Yeah AS3 is faster, more strict, more agile in some cases and less agile in others...
And yeah it has many new APIs since AS2 days.

Cool! I'd like it where I have to hold down a button to draw and there is some drag force or something so the particles come to a stop and be able to choose colors and then it becomes an advanced drawing program!
P.S wonderwhy, I love your signature :)

Hehe, I am thinking of adding color choice, drag force is actually and interesting idea but I will not make it here.

Well there is popular saying in Russian simmilar to that. There is word mig(you can guess from where Mig-29 name came) in Russian that does not have exact translation but is close to instant and moment. I just realized that I could call it flash which makes it a funny translation for a Flash programmer :D
