Ninja and Montage: New HTML5 Tools

Justin | design,HTML5 | Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

A couple of teams at Motorola have been working some very interesting projects. First, there’s Montage, a coding framework for HTML5 on mobile devices. Then, there’s Ninja, a graphical user interface built for (and on top of) Montage. Both products are being offered free from Motorola.

The Ninja team is composed of many former Flash Pro team members who were previously at Adobe. These folks really know what they’re doing, so this is a project to keep your eye on.

You can find more details in this article or at the tetsubo.org page.

Article Round-up

Justin | Animate/Flash,articles,design,links,tips | Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

We’re keeping quite busy around here! Here’s a quick round-up of some recent articles that I’ve published.

5 Flash Animation tips in 5 days on the Peachpit blogs:

Also on the Peachpit site, there’s an excerpt on Character Animation from our recent book with Chris Georgenes.

I also have a new video tutorial over at ActiveTuts+ on Creating Advanced Motion Presets in Flash with JSFL.

In addition to the recent advice page I added on Learning Flash, I’m working on a page about becoming a graphic designer/Flash animator/digital artist. It includes some of my background and lessons learned. That article is pretty much on hold as we work toward the SmartMouth release (hopefully just another week), and I will pick it up after that.
