New Demos Preview

I've been working with some simple sample applications of the framework preparing for the next, soon to be released build of Avatar Core (0.2.0). The purpose of these samples was to make sure the features that have been implemented into the framework can actually be used when applied in the real world (vs. looking good on paper). The samples will be available for download and presented as demos on the Avatar Core project page when the 0.2.0 build is released.

The two sample demos previewed below demonstrate manipulating feature properties (position, size, and rotation) and the use of Mirror and Constrain behaviors. They use a new character I whipped up for these samples that I like to call Fred.

The source for each demo only amounts to about 150 lines of code - this including the XML descriptor for the avatar (which takes up about 60 lines by itself). Again, these will be available (in FLA form) when 0.2.0 is released, shortly.
