Flash CS4 tweening. Nothing new.

It’s funny how technology tends to recycle old ideas.  Like Macromedia Director style animation paths and tweening, now recycled into Flash CS4.  Don’t get me wrong, Flash CS4 looks pretty cool, and introduces a whole bunch of stuff that Director never had.

In fact, animation paths are such a cool idea, that I used them a few years ago in a Central application.  I wrote a prototype animation application called e2animate.

I’d like to recycle it to work on AIR sometime.

The pictures below shows how similar the animation paths in e2animate were to Flash CS4.  See how I used bezier curve paths that could be edited on the stage.

Some people have speculated that Adobe will eventually port versions of its software (Flash, etc.) to AIR, like it has already done with PhotoShop.

Well, back in the day, before AIR, before Flex – developers like myself were already beginning to move in that direction.
