Update: the animations are now here:
http://www.revkites....main/Animations
========================================================

Here's a little something I've been playing with.
The size is based on the dimensions of the screen on my Verizon PN-280 smartphone. Since these will play on my phone as well as the computer, I can show them to folks out on the field.

Check 'em out:

Blender

Burst and Twister

Compound Benefits

Pez

Side by Side Boxes

There are programs out there to convert flash movies to iPod videos. But the iPod videos wouldn't be interactive, they would just be movies. That is, you couldn't turn the arrows on/off or have it stop at the end of a step. I don't have a video iPod though, so someone else will have to chime in with a how-to.

That is freaking awesome Mike, great work!

The animations make it so much easier to understand these moves.

More on the way?

I'd love to see the fly-through, and a 6-MAN blender. ;)

more one the way. I'm using a trial version of Flash from Adobe, so I only have a couple weeks left to do them. The full version costs a few hundred bucks, which is beyond my budget.

I forgot to mention the keyboard shortcuts. They are designed for playing on a phone, but usable on your PC too:
0 turn on/off step mode
1 - 6, turn the arrows on/off for kites 1 through 6
7 back one step
9 forwards one step
8 play/pause
Left Arrow: forward one frame of animation
Right Arrow: back one frame of animation
# full screen mode

Trying being the operative word here. I haven't had time to work on it in almost two weeks. Kinda depressing but, oh well. I'll try and have something to update you all with soon.

It may help if they write it onto their shoes, but, then again, you kinda want them looking up...

If and when time presents itself Mike, I'd dearly love to see 6-man and 8-man Blender animations. ;)

I know how the move goes, so do most of my teammates, but try explaining the 8-man Blender to fresh faces, out on the field! :huh:
