Video of Astro in Day 1 MAX 2007 keynote

If you missed the keynote, or weren’t able to make it to Chicago for MAX this year, Aral Balkan has a video clip of us presenting a few of the Astro features on his blog.

Aral’s blog on the Astro keynote

I am very pleased with how the demos came through, and we have a lot of people to thank for pulling them together so that we could show them to you:
* Creating assets and generally busting his a** to get the demos together: Justin Everett-Church, Sr. Product Manager for Flash Player!!!
* Text demo of bidi/complex scripts: Jerry Hall, Eric Muller, Sairus Patel in Core Tech. Core Tech is working closely with our team on the layout engine. We are talking about some super text gurus!
* Adobe Edge: Robin Briggs, who is leading the text component library engineering effort
* 3D: Chris Nuuja, Flash Player engineering, for getting us a build with the new 3D APIs (while we’re working on Moviestar)
* Kevin Goldsmith, Bob Archer, and Elba Sobrino (and probably more from the Adobe Image Foundation team) for their awesome work on the Hydra language, the toolkit, sample filters and getting it up on Adobe Labs today

    The features look nice, but I’m not quite clear on the text stuff. Using these features will require components? Components are pretty notoriously big, how much file size are we talking?Besides left to right and columns, what other features will be possible? For example, could you put text on a path, wrap it to a non-rectangular shape, etc?

    Doing a project at the moment that would be so much easier with that Text Component. It looks great.I was just wondering is there any chance these new TextField features are going to include some accessibility improvements?Two things that I would love to see are some semantic structure for screen readers (headers, lists, links) and, even more vital, keyboard access to links.

    Must work less on new flash version, work more on 64 bit linux version. We are feeling excluded and very alone πŸ™
