We’ve all heard people asking ‘why can’t we have scrollable, 3D animating scenes with lots of sounds that runs on desktop as well as iPad and WebKit-based browsers and heavily features cows, ice cream and disco?’.
Haven’t we? Well? Just me then…
Anyway allow me to finally answer the question that was never asked – with MooDisco!
Created with Adobe Edge Animate preview, Greensock (TweenMax and TimelineMax), the rather nifty SoundManager 2 and a few jQuery UI libraries for dragging, this demo has everything you need if you like ice cream, cows and disco.
And even if they’re not your thing, I hope it puts a little smile on your face – the web can be a very serious place nowadays and so, in the immortal words of Willy Wonka:
A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.
As mentioned this works best in Safari, Chrome or any other WebKit-enabled browser. It works in Firefox too (it just doesn’t recognise the 3D tweens).
I’ve noticed the draggable slider doesn’t work in IE9 and I understand it’s due to incompatibilities with the Adobe Edge Animate version of jQuery. You can still click in the scroll track though, so all is not lost.
I will be publishing the cleaned-up source code for this soon (as an Adobe Edge Animate project with accompanying JS files). If you can’t wait for the nicely commented, clean version you can download and poke about in my messy current version with lots of stuff commented out and no helpful comments or anything.
