EMC xCP Documentum October 26th, 2010
Another dry spell there, I really need to get back in the posting habit. Maybe with the evenings drawing in it’ll be easier. Anyway, here’s something new – A Flash micro site to promote EMC’s xCP Documentum software. The site is built for Flash player 9.0 and is coded in Actionscript 3.0.
There’s all sorts of delights going on in the background and this was a great site to do to get my Flash skills back up to scratch – the content is all driven by an XML back end, from links and assets (images, videos etc.), to the site copy. This meant all the content areas and buttons had to be expandable (to a point at least, I could only be as flexible as the design). This also meant that the language of the site could be easily changed allowing for roll out in multiple countries. By setting a language variable in the XML the flash movie will dynamically load in and embed the correct font and character set (using a class written by my predecessor at The Crocodile).
This was a pretty hardcore re-introduction to Flash after a long absence but it was kind of fun to build and really allowed me to expand my Flash skills so all well worthwhile.
Hopefully the next Scriptic installment will be something downloadable and scripty as I only seem to post websites these days. Untill then bye bye!
