CustomEvent TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed

Posted in Flash, Problems on April 1st, 2010 by eccheung4

TypeError: Error #1034 Type Coercion failed: cannot convert com.events::CustomEvent@###### to com.events.CustomEvent.
at flash.events:EventDispatcher/dispatchEventFunction()
….blah,blah,blah,blah

This was an error I was getting and I couldn’t figure out what was causing it. Turns out its a simple fix. I was loading a swf that dispatches a CustomEvent. To get rid of this error I just needed to import the CustomEvent Class in the main class that is loading the other swf.

import com.events.CustomEvent;

Then somewhere in you main class, you add

CustomEvent;

Unity 2.6 FREE

Posted in Unity on October 29th, 2009 by eccheung4

Wow, Unity 2.6 (Unity Indie) is now FREE. Well, the indie version anyways. The Pro version still costs a lot. That is still awesome. I’ve always wanted to try out Unity and now that it’s free I am definitely going to check it out now. Looks like they’ve got a great tutorial up as well.

AdobeMax 2009

Adobemax

AdobeMax was awesome as usual. Lots of great sessions and of course, the sneak peaks were just amazing….content awareness filter for photoshop. It basically removes stuff out of your photo that you don’t want like magic such as wires, buildings, animals, etc, just by specifying the area with a brush tool.

AdobeMax had a few more stars this year with John Mayer making an appearance and Mark Hamill during the sneak peaks presentation. Overall, it was a great experience and AdobeMax really knows how to throw a party when they basically took over the Nokia Live Center.

AnimationMentor Class 1 Basic Foundations Complete

Posted in animation on September 19th, 2009 by eccheung4

Wow, its been a crazy, busy, fun filled, awesome 12 weeks taking Basic Foundations with Wayne Gilbert at AnimationMentor.com. Its pretty amazing what I’ve learned in so little time, but there is still so much more to be learned. Wayne Gilbert was an awesome mentor with helping and teaching us along the way. You can also get his Simplified Drawing for Planning Animation book from his site here. It really helps keep things simple and I’ve used it as reference many times as I try to improve my drawing skills and planning. Here’s my progress reel from class 1:
