Playing with bitmapdata

07 September 2006 at 4:27 am

I’ve always loved MP3 visualizers. I really like the beautiful patterns that race across the screen in tune with the music and so does my kids. Sometimes they even say “dad can we watch some music” 😊

A couple months ago, there was a competition over at GotoAndLearn.com where Lee Brimelow asked for cool use of the computeSpectrum() method. I didn’t have time to participate, but this eve I finally got to play with the BitmapData classes in Flash 8. (Note to self: make less webapps and more fun stuff!). It’s nothing fancy, but I’m pleased with the looks and how simple it was to do it.

Looks pretty good for something less than one Kb (if the FPS counter is removed)? Guess I’ll make an AS3 version next to see how that affects speed (+ add computeSpectrum support). Download FLA
