10/15/2012: Sound Effects, and Intro to ActionScript 3.0

Our video recording of this meeting will be uploaded soon!

Today, Livio gave two short talks. The first was an introduction into making your own sound effects. We talked about the sound effects generator bfxr, which is a Flash port of the Windows program called sfxr (and there's also a Mac port called cfxr). We also used Audacity to record sounds from a mic and manipulate them until they sounded professional.

The second talk was an introduction into programming for Flash. We talked about the display list and some basic ideas about how Flash works.

Next week, Patrick will be giving a talk about making games with XNA.
