JavaFX: Bring life to the scene
By dannycoward on Apr 22, 2009
One cool thing about JavaFX animation is animating along an arbitrary path: so it was good to see Josh posting a Curve editor in JavaFX, to ready-make a CubicCurve to use for the animation path of something you want to bring to life in a scenegraph. It was a bit like Jasper's JavaFX spline editor, which gives a real-time view of how a keyframe animation in JavaFX is going to look. Some tips for the design tool team, Norbyemaybe ?
And did you see yesterday's article on deploying Swing and JavaFX applets ? A step by step walk through of how end-users are going first to experience your JavaFX/Swing app. On a variety of browsers, and depending on whether they already have the JRE installed. You can see why Java Auto-Update is so important, even if the install process got even more simplified.
