Video: AnimateColor in Flex 4

AnimateColor in Flex 4, the next episode in the gripping and suspenseful series CodeDependent, is now available from Adobe TV.

This show is a follow-on from the previous show on the Animate Effect in Flex 4, which talked about the superclass of the new effects in Flex 4. This show is all about the new AnimateColor effect, which allows you to animate colors on arbitrary Flex objects using the new type interpolation capabilities in the Flex 4 effects. While we showed how to do this with the Animate effect in the previous video, using AnimateColor is a more natural way to achieve this specific effect. We also talked a bit about AnimateColor in the video Color My World, although that show was more about comparing RGB and HSB colorspace interpolation, and this show is specifically about using the AnimateColor effect. And yes, this is the last show where I talk about color for a while. I promise.

Here's the video:

Here is the demo application:

And here is the source code.

Finally, here's where you can find the video on iTunes.
