  1. So, you fill up your library with graphics and the actionscript places them randomly on the stage. The only thing I can’t figure out is how you get your result in your design …
    Do you take a printscreen or what happens next? What if you have to make a A0 poster? The resolution of a prinscreen will not be high enough to be useful … Or do you get vectors and is everything scalable?

  2. Martijn, that is the tricky part. I found some instructions via Josh Davis’ website a while back for ripping vectors from an SWF to a Postscript document via an old Laserwriter print driver. It worked for the most part on my machine running XP, although I’m currently having issues with Vista trying to duplicate the process.

  3. It sure is an interesting process. I wonder if you could make the generation be a little less random or somehow have the pieces react to each other.

  4. hey james,

    love you work – and especially someone using engines like Josh Davis (i’ve always been surprised more people don’t utilize engines like this to create abstract elements), and the gritty black vibe tops it off!

    great work, mate.
