I've been always to develop a 2.5D engine with camera. And here it is, ZedBox.
Different from the ZSprite engine in CJLibrary CS4, ZedBox actually supports 3D camera, which means no more fixed camera direction.
You can set the camera to point to whatever direction you like.
ZedBox also supports nested DisplayObject structures, giving you more control over object structures.
Moreover, ZedBox supports ZFilter, allowing you to create effects such as depth-of-field effects.
In the future, I'm going to combine Emitter with ZedBox; that is, ZedEmitter!
ZedEmitter would be capable of creating 2.5D particle effects.
I'm looking forward pretty much to it :)
Oh, and here's an example for ZedBox: Satellites.

Two major new features to Emitter version 2.1 are composite behavior triggers and XML supports.
I've recorded some video tutorials to cover these features.
Also, I've recorded a tutorial on timeline-animated particles.
11 - Timeline-Animated Particles
12 - Composite Behavior Trigger
13 - XML
14 - More on XML
Alright, the total length of the video tutorials has reached an hour.
Probably I can name this playlist "Emitter in An Hour" :p

I'm just so excited about making Emitter video tutorials.
So here are three more tutorials!
05 - Deflectors
06 - Behaviors
07 - Custom Behavior Triggers
I actually like the last one pretty much.
It covers the how to create custom behavior triggers by extending the BehaviorTrigger class, which is one of the major new features of Emitter 2.0.
I'm a big fan of Lee Brimelow's Flash video tutorials.
So I decided to make my own video tutorials on Emitter!
Hope you like it :)
01 - Introduction
02 - Basic Usage
03 - Gravity Fields
04 - Burst & Damping
The complete playlist
More video tutorials coming up~
