Corona Geek #128 – Creating Custom Composer Library Transitions
During last week’s Hangout we took a break from our Composer Library series to talk with Corona Ambassador, Jason Schroeder about his Progress Ring module and his Color Picker module. Both modules let you add impressive features to your apps using one line of code. Jason shared insights into both modules development and gave us a look at what’s coming next.
During this week’s Hangout we wrapped up our Composer Library discussion with a look at creating custom Composer Library transitions and we revisited tips for unloading modules with adding sprites into Composer scenes.
Next week we plan to start a new series where we’ll break down a popular game mechanic into reproducible steps. We’ll examine the concepts, the code, and the tips needed to implement the mechanic in your own games. We’ll also be looking at the Transitions library and how it can be used fuel many of the movements in your apps.
