Here's another video from Adobe TV. In this one, I'm showing a couple of applications that demonstrate some of the intelligence that we're building into the new effects in Gumbo (the codename for the next release of Flex). Specifically, these demos show some of the new automatic behavior of the Fade effect and the new "autoReverse" capability of transitions.
As with any Gumbo demos, you should not get too locked into the specific APIs, since we're still very much mid-development. For example, all of the effects currently have an "Fx" prefix in the classnames which should be going away soon. But the point of the applications is to show the functionality and behavior of the effects, which is here to stay.
I should/will post the code and applications soon, but my workspace is a bit torn up at the moment, since I'm in the middle of more cool-o effects features. As soon as that's cleared up, I'll update this post to have the code available. Meanwhile, grab the popcorn, sit back, and enjoy all 6 minutes and 8 seconds of:
