Iex (new Beta) Perfect Zoom Effect


Recommended Posts

I just tested the new iex beta

WOW. simply WOW

question: isn't it possible to cut the 'zoom' routine out of the program and

Produce a program, to

a) produce other 'zoom' effects

B) integrate it with XP's Windows Zoom in/out functionality

c) integrate it as 'plug in' for Y's Dock or ObjectDock (or helping the programmer of 'Aqua Dock' to 'optimize' 'his' Dock with the effect)

c.1) other effects

c.2) integrate a new interface card with several effects like the few 'jumping' effects in ObjectDock

HM - it *Will* be possible, just a matter of networking, i suppose....

What I get from this is that you're suggesting we take iEx, rip it apart, and re-build it as a genie-effect-type plugin for a dock, with different zoom effects? If this is what you're suggesting, then I doubt it's gonna happen... just given what iEx is trying to emulate, I don't see that in its future. :P

Actually, it's impossible to do so :)

Direct3D MUST have its own window (no layering or transparency at all).

Topic moved.

Next time please PM member of the staff instead of commenting it here - it's rather pointless ;)
