Tabuleiro Gets New Xtras

Tabuleiro, the makes of Director Xtras like ShapeShifter  and the Nebulae multiuser server for Director have acquired and plan to update some well-known and very handy Xtras: ShockFiler, vList, TreeView and TextCruncher. I hear great things about vList and TextCruncher, though I haven’t needed to use them. I’ve never heard of ShockFiler before — the Xtra apparently lets you FTP changed text and image members to a server. Interesting. I’ve experimented with using Flash’s ability to access Web cams and iSights to capture your image and use it in a game. Check out my Web Cam Jigsaw Puzzle. I’d love to be able to send that back to the server in a better way than byte-by-byte. I’m not sure if I’d be able to capture the image in a Flash movie as a bitmap in Shockwave though. I’ll have to experiment.
