  • New Bumblehead.com

    This site is relaunched today! It uses a unique static system, named "gani", that I developed to quickly build and customize web interfaces. I hope it runs quickly for you and is fun to use :).

    I'm not sure how focused this site will be on any one topic, but I plan to host my own web experiments here and possibly start a video blog related to software development culture.

    {
      "page" : "pgls",
      "name" : "blogslist",
      "fkey" : [{
        "datablogskey" : "/blogs/datablogs"
      }],
      "maplist" : {
        "type" : "fn",
        "fnname" : "getchildkeys",
        "argprops" : ["fkey.datablogskey"]
      },
      "child" : [{
        "fkey" : "blogkey",
        "spec" : { 
          "type" : "local-ref",
          "path" : "../page-blogs-list-blog/"
        }
      }]
    }
    

    gani renders documents using a JSON-formatted design language to define layout, appearance and behaviour. JSON "patterns", such as above, are resolved by an interpreter to complete a graph. Inspect the graph for bumblehead.com by opening a browser console and entering _cfg._rgraph.toJS().

    gani is still a work in progress. Building a design language is difficult. The language must be generic enough to describe future designs unknown to the author. If too verbose, the language becomes unwieldy. Modifying the language may cause backward-compatibility issues for the interpreter software (also challenging to write).

    If pattern files are web-accessed, one needs to organize them in ways to minimize requests. The difficulty increases if you have locale and/or language specific content in your application.

  • El Cid

    Cortex Accelera will be playing in a live show at El Cid in Silverlake on 7/10. Its a free event celebrating his new released record 'The Place We Went To'.

    He remade the score for our video work, 'Royal Crown'. Hear it in the media section of this site. The media section is updated to serve html5 video (was previously flash).

  • Hello Javascript

    Did you know, Opera's garbage collection prevents this from saying 'hi'?

    function(src) {
       var i = new Image();
       i.onload = function() { alert("hi"); }
       i.src = src;
    }

  • Making Waves

    I finished a sinewave animation and there's a demonstration page that displays various sinewave videos made during production. The results are surprisingly dynamic. The fun part of this project involved writing a Common Lisp program for generating the sinewaves and this required a few things in addition to writing a sinewave function. There are functions for drawing circles and connecting lines. There's a class for generating exponential curves...

    It'll be appearing in a video.
    Something To Come Undone, dir. Anna Chiaretta Lavatelli, 2010

    Here are two tiny code pieces from sinewave.lisp. 'Live on, Common Lisp!

    (defmethod  coords-to-canvas (coords rgba (canvas image-canvas))
      (mapcar #'(lambda (xy)
                  (pixel-to-canvas xy rgba canvas))
              coords))
    (defmacro when-inside (frame bgn end &body body)
      `(when (and (>= ,frame ,bgn)
                  (<= ,frame ,end))
         ,@body))

  • Royal Crown

    I've been so focused on the things I'm doing now that I never took the time to post an update here. I did finish a GREAT new video and the production quality is very high in this one.

    hand

    I'm experimenting with embedded video players for the media section here. Flash's F4V format is great at showing most of the videos I've made, but Royal Crown doesn't compress well in F4V so I'm not sure if I'll use Flash or not. I'll figure something out before the end of next week and make the video available at that time, -eh here's a 640x480 version for you to download until then.

    I have pulled some of my software off of this page and I will rarely add software to it in the future. If you want to see a sample of my PHP or Actionscript send me an email with your name and phone number in it and I'll get back to you.

  • Stobo Update

    throw

    I've made an update to Stobo. It's a bug-fix update, -minor bugs that I've noticed over the last week or two:

    • while processing, preview is OFF for large images
    • some tasks have been made faster
    • status of processed images is included in GUI

    I've created a new HTML page -check it out. www.justingalligher.com

    I've also updated Stobo. I updated the *.ico file and so now it contains multiple sizes of icon (32x32, 24x24, 16x16). Icon loading was changed so that it works better in windows environments..

  • Spring Time :)

    Do you feel a potent creative energy in the air right now? Is it the spring sunshine...? It's that great time for meeting new people and doing new things. If you're not feeling it, go on an evening drive with the windows rolled down and then you will feel it.

    I've updated Stobo. I removed or optimized algorithms that were slowing Stobo down and I fixed a broken reference in the stop button's event handler.

    Here's an image of me working on Stobo earlier today...

    Today I'm releasing Stobo-1.0

    stobo

    The 1.0'ness of this release signifies my opinion that Stobo is fully functional software. It has not been idiot-proofed yet, but that'll've happened in the 2.0 release.

    Here's what Stobo is. It's the missing stop-motion link in the free software chain. Stobo will 'listen' to a directory and will recognize image files if any appear in the directory. All image files in the directory are automatically copied, formatted, renamed, and saved to another location (for example, a network-mounted directory).

    It's free. it's cross-platform. It's camera-agnostic. It's easy to use. If you don't see the utility of this, you are either a) not a stopmotion animator, b) using the wrong work-flow or c) you are person who likes spending money (don't be ashamed).

    If you are 'c)', I still recommend that you take a look at Stobo. If you use Stobo, you'll be able to access the developer, me, for suggestions or help at any time. Note: I do love you, but don't abuse that :).

    I finished rendering my animation today! I've been working on it for a long time. I was determined to use linux to get all of the digital work done. The path was forsaken and often un-clear, but I finally made it to the end.
