    Blend 3 allows you to embed fonts, but unfortunately if you publish your work online you are technically distributing the font. Learn how to cope with this problem in the post of Gavin Wignall.

    However, there is a way around this, if you encrypt the font so that it is not usable then you are arguably not distributing it any more. This process is known as Obfuscation. It is important, however, to point out that you still need a license or permission to use a non-standard font in your work.

  • 10 Expression Blend 3 Tutorials for Silverlight

    Adam Kinney announces that the 10 tutorials from the Eyes of Blend series on Project Rosetta site are now available for download in both Word and PDF format.

    The .zip files also contain source code for the starter projects  and resource files if appropriate. One thing that’s been useful in developing these web tutorials is that I’ve been able to reuse them as demos for talks and now downloadable labs to run offline.  The next format I’m planning will be screencasts, most likely for the more visual demos.

    With Halloween around the corner, Andrej Tozon decided that it’s time for some scary photos and published his Halloween Gallery made with the help of Expression Blend 3.Images

    In this post I’ll explain how I built my demo application I showed at my Windows 7 Launch talk.

    Expression Blend 3 shipped with a few interesting samples, available for immediate use. One of them is called Wall3D (Silverlight 3) and is a great example of one of the new Silverlight 3D features, called perspective transform.

    In this post Vikram Pendse gives a simple and straight talk on Blend 3 Sketch Flow feature without any confusing technical terms and he also shares the right resources on net to refer.

    For Designers, there is always challenge to build interactive prototypes for customers so as to give feel of application to customer in reality, Typically before tools like Blend Sketch Flow, we use to either build POCs (Again we need to put Man efforts in this activity) or we use to build designs in Excel or word, Drawback of this was, it does not helps to exactly put forth our point in front of client since they might not be that interactive and realistic which can give feel of application which we plan to build.

    In this new project Gavin Wignall uses the new 3D Projection tools in Expression Blend 3 to make a nice animation.Image

    First we need to set up our assets. I have imported two images (of Scarlett Wignall) and used the image brush to paint them onto two separate rectangles (read: tutorial for importing images). Then I have set up a new storyboard, set it to auto play and repeat forever (read: tutorial for creating storyboards).

    In this post Gavin Wignall explains about the blur and the shadow effects that are available in the Expression Blend 3 tool.

    Silverlight 3 introduced the ability to use Pixel Shaders with 2 native effects built in and available in the Expression Blend 3 tool. The two Pixel Shaders that Blend currently offers are ‘Drop Shadow‘ and ‘Blur‘. The Drop Shadow effect is even able to convert Photoshop Drop Shadow effects reasonably well through the new ‘Import Adobe Photoshop File‘ feature.

    Both the ‘Blur‘ and ‘DropShadow‘ effect will work on any item inside your project, including vector shapes, text and images (even with transparent areas).
