I’ve uploaded the latest stable version of Tweener to the download list – the current stable version is now 1.26.62.

Yuichi Tateno has a blog

Yuichi Tateno, the mind behind JSTweener, now has a blog in english. Among other things, he has just posted a new special property modifier for the actionscript version of Tweener – one that allows higher order bezier curves, allowing developers to create cubic beziers (and beyond) instead of a series of quadratic bezier curves like […]

Sandy and Tweener

I’m really late on this one, but here it goes: the new version of the Sandy 3d engine is out in the wild, and one of the changes on the API is that properties are now directly accessible. As a result, creating tweenings with Tweener is pretty easy; Dennis Ippel has a bunch of articles […]

Tweener for haXe

I’m delighted to announce that Baluta Cristian has ported Tweener to the haXe language. It works pretty much the same as the ActionScript versions, although with a slightly different syntax on some cases. Find out more about the project here. There are also other languages that haven’t seen the tweening light just yet – UnrealScript, […]

Many Papervision3D examples

How come I missed this? John Grden has published a lot of examples for Papervision3D on the Papervision3D blog. They’re not only pretty cool, but one of them uses Tweener to animate a target camera. I’ve always thought that learning by example is the best way to do it with Flash, and this new batch […]
