Fuse and Goasap: Open Source Animation Tools
Since ActionScript 1.0, animation has consistently been one of the most exciting areas of the open source Flash community. This chapter looks at two open source libraries I’ve released for coding animation, one for ActionScript 2 and the other for ActionScript 3. Each addresses a wide audience and works as a unifying force in different ways. I started with a top-down approach with Fuse Kit and have since moved toward a more inclusive roots-up strategy with a community initiative called GoASAP. My work is but a small sample from this vibrant corner of ActionScript. This chapter is a tribute to the many others involved, and it’s an open invitation for you to join the fun.
