I make a dang fool of myself by embracing a bottle of vodka as tribute to Paolo and his continued pursuit of employment! Although I sort of forgot to mention that.
Sup so this past week I’ve been pouring way too much time into making this portfolio! I think it is really cool because you can zoom in by clicking on stuff and zoom out by clicking on the borders. Tell me what you think! I can still change anything if you have any gripes or find any problems.
Getting more technical – nothing happens on the Timeline, besides layers. All movements and other actions are programmed through ActionScript. Furthermore, each item is dynamically loaded through XML so I can easily update it if I need to. Lastly, one cool trick I did was to have thumbnails load when you first load it up, and larger images to load afterwards. When you click on the thumbnails, they fade into the larger images so there’s minimal blockiness or nearest-neighbor pixelation. You can take a look at the source if you’d like.
Whoops, I meant a walrus.
