    Take a look at this interesting post of Adam Kinney on animating an object by using the FluidMotionBehavior of Expression Blend 4.

    ImageI’ve been explaining the concept of Fluid UI, as a means to animate discrete properties.  The first example that comes to mind is the Visibility property of an element.  Its either Visible or Collapsed, there is no way to interpolate between the two values. When you change the Visibility property between different VisualStates and check the “Use Fluid UI” button, rather than instantly disappearing, Fluid UI will animate the opacity and scale transform to provide a visual transition between the discrete values.

    In this video, Adam Kinney explains what the PathListBox is and why it is so compelling. Then, he demonstrates several ways of using it in creative examples.

    The PathListBox is one of the newest features available in Expression Blend and Silverlight 4. It redefines how users look at lists of data as it breaks the mold of a list "box" and opens the possibilities to use any shape or path. Don't miss this episode and be sure to download Adam's sample code.

    In this post Adam Kinney talks about the new feature of Expresseion Blend RC to load resources at design time.

    When building Silverlight and WPF applications that are composited (e.g. using MEF) or written to support UI customization, resources are loaded dynamically at run-time. This is a great solution on the development side, but can be a challenge when working on design tasks.  If your design surface can’t find the resources at design-time you are presented with zero styling or worse, XAML parsing errors.

    Expression Blend 4 RC provides a new feature to support loading resources at design-time.

    Adam Kinney has put together a simple step by step guide to installing Silverlight Tools.

    The new Setup tutorial takes full advantage of the Web Platform Installer (Web PI) which acts as a download and install tool for the needed Tools.  This makes writing the tutorial and installing much easier.

    Along with the step by step guide, I’ve also updated the Getting Started series to reflect the new v4 tools and features, specifically CompositionTarget.Rendering (which is like ENTER_FRAME) and CompositeTransform (which makes transforms simpler than before).

    Adam Kinney has created a nice Avatar Mosaic Prototype with the help of the Artefact Animator library.

    ImageAfter finding out about the Artefact Animator,  written by Jesse Graupmann, I knew I wanted to try it out.

    The Artefact Animator library is based on the same concept as Tweener for Flash, which provides an easy way to do procedural animations in WPF and Silverlight.

    I found some time last night to put together this little Xbox Live avatar mosaic and was very pleased with the results.
