Hello everyone,

Firstly, a happy Easter to all. There has been query many a times from customers as to the difference between the Flash Banner Creator flash app and the Flash Slideshow Maker flash app. Both these flash apps look identical in the way they work and the options they provide. It is true that is very little functional or visual differences between the two. Our development team is working to make improvements to these Flash Apps to make they largely unique. As a small step forward, we've added new Transition Effects to the Flash Banner Creator Flash App. The new effects are namely - TileFlip, CarWipe, Mosaic and Random. These effects are unique on their own and should lend better impact to your Flash Banner flash apps, specifically Mosaic and TileFlip that should be very suited to banner transitions.

Flash Pan/Zoom is an effective tool that can help showcase products, let customers do a quick drag and zoom preview and provide multiple viewing options to see and feel the product better. I'd like to discuss quick tips to produce effective Pan/Zoom flash movies that can be an effective value add to your product gallery.

The first requirement is to have a high resolution image of your product. This lets customers zoom and/or pan the image to explore better. I'll start with a 800x635 image of a jewel (its not the ideal resolution but I didn't get a better royalty-free image).  The first task is to set the flash canvas area to half the size  of the original image. The rule is necessarily not half the original, you can try 2/3 if you to start with a better sized-image. It all depends on your image resolution and how much zoom you wish to allow. The reason for a high-resolution (or a very high resolution) is two things - firstly, you don't want to allow customers to zoom beyond its original size (otherwise the zoom will grain your image). Secondly, as already indicated, you'd want customers to allow enough zoom and pan to explore the product.

A happy new year to all. This is the first post this 2013 and here is a tip that comes straight out from a query asked by one of our customers. The query was how to create thumbnails for a Slideshow flash movie. The fact is, this option is not available in the Flash Slideshow Maker. However, the Flash Banner Creator does have this option. Here is where you find it.
In the main Flash Banner Creator settings panel on the left, expand Navigation Bar. In the dropdown list, select Filmstrip option.

There is a need when you have to create multiple versions of the same project. And you don't see a "copy" option to simply create a copy - what do you do? Sometimes, you're short of time and you end of redoing the same flash project, all over again. Gosh, that really sucks. Okay, here is somewhat better way to make life easy. Just pop in a support ticket mentioning the name of the project and the number of copies you'd like to create and we'd be happy to do so. I do however understand that it may not work when you're short of time, but we'd get this arranged in less than a business day if that ETA would work for you.

I know you're asking as to why not have the option on the Members Area. We heard it and it will be available soon in the next release.

If you had ever downloaded  your flash movie that has a background music attached, as a FLV or a AVI video file, you'd have noticed that the audio is out of sync with the video. When the rendering engine converts the raw Flex flash movie to a video file, there always seems to be a differential delay in matching the video to the audio track. The differential delay is caused by various factors such as the current load on the server, pending requests, etc. We are still trying to figure out how to normalize the delay factor so that audio mismatch effectively be nullified.  However, a workaround to the problem, though a bit lengthy, is this:

1) Remove the sound track from the flash movie. The following KB article provides instructions:

Flash Carousel is an effective flash tool when you have to showcase items interactively, for example,  a flash movie  intro of latest collections in an online gift shop, a slideshow of kitchenware items, a cool list of masterpieces in your art gallery or simply the best photos in your photography site. Whatever the application, a Flash 3D Carousel looks cool when its on your website and is an effective tool to showcase products.

In this blog, I'll try to address the basic elements of a 3D Carousel that could turn a flash Carousel into a great looking flash movie.

Some users may have noted that for some videos that they upload into the Flash Builder, they're greeted with a "Video is processing" message. The problem was that users find the message continues to persists even hours after the actual upload. At times, they don't get to see the video at all. I'd thought I'd give some background as to what exactly happens. When you upload a video and try to drag it to the Flash Builder stage the first time, Toufee puts a "Video Processing" banner. This banner is actually an image. When you open your project the next time, this banner would be replaced with the actual video that was processed. What we've noted is that the browser tends to cache this banner image even after the video is successfully processed. Users thus tend to see this image everytime leading to think that the video is still under process. To fix the problem, one has to clear the browser cache. The following page has instructions on how to clear the browser cache

First of all, to all our US customers, wish you all a happy July 4th! Now, if you've been using the Toufee flash player skin for your flash movies, you'd have noticed that there isn't a replay button. If you have to replay the flash movie, then one has to drag the slider all over to the back to be able to play again. This quite annoying not to mention that many end users of your flash movie may not necessarily be aware how to replay. So here is a quick tip to let add a button item that will act as a replay button for your flash movie. Below are quick steps:

1) On the left panel, click the 'Text &Items' option

Hello everyone, its been a while since the last blog and it couldn't be a good time to write a new post. I keep getting queries to our Support Desk about the use of the enlarge image option found in the Flash Apps ( 3D Carousel, CoverFlow etc). It seems that there is confusion as there is no clear documentation as to how to use this feature. I thought its right time to clarify this through this blog entry. The enlarge option is used to show images in a popup window (like a preview) when the smaller version of the image. The enlarge image option can be accessed by selecting an image in any of the Flash Apps initial upload screen

For those of your Toufee flash movie users who've created a hyperlink in your flash movie, you've noticed a popup window show up when the link is clicked. It was a bit of nagging problem and particularly annoying when our customers are creating flash movies for their customers.

The Flash Builder has a feature called Movie Presets that lets you set a defined preset (or a group of settings) to all the flash movie items. While we are working on making the Movie Presets more robust, you'll for now find only two basic presets - Slideshow and Simple Fade. In the article, we'll talk about Simple Fade, which as the name suggests, sets a Simple Fade for the In Effect and the Out Effect for all the items.

To access Movie Presets, click the Presets button on the left panel. Then click the Movie Presets option

There have been increasing queries lately as to how Toufee flash movies can be delivered over mobile devices, given the increasing use of mobile as a content delivery platform thanks to the smartphone wave. Flash found its adoption slower on the mobile platform than on the Internet, arguably so. Adobe Flex, which Toufee is developed on, is yet to get full-stream support on the mobile platform. This presents quite a challenge to make Toufee flash movies work on mobile devices just like they would in traditional Internet environment on PCs.

Gladly, there is a workaround that you could use for now. Since Toufee supports converting flash movies to video files, the answer is to use YouTube as a content delivery medium for your flash movies. YouTube provides an Andriod application that lets you watch the videos. So get the ball rolling and start updating your YouTube channel with your flash movies. A great fit would be the delivery of video-series such as educational tutorials, marketing promo series, etc. So the next time someone asks you how to check your flash movie on their mobile, send them to your YouTube channel!

Yesterday, our development team add a nifty little option that should come in very handy. The development team added an option that lets you access the download links from within your Members Area. Inside the Members Area, on the top right, you'll see the Flash Tools tab. On the top right corner of this tab, you'll notice a small circled number inside it. Clicking this will reveal a dropout menu that will list all your download links like the one shown in the screenshot below:
