    up for a challenge?

    joeq Level 1
      as some of you you may have seen, i posted this link ( http://jacksonpollock.org/) earlier in the week because i thought it was really impressive. well, curiousity got the better of me so i downloaded a decompiler and, uh, decompiled it to see if i could learn a little about how it was done.... specifically, i'm curious as to how the colors were spec'd and how the order by which they appear was determined.

      the fla that i generated is here: www.quintandquint.com/pollock.fla – i'd love if someone who knew more than i do (a lot more – from the looks of it) would take a peek under the hood and lend a little insight.

      oh, and if some people think this is poor form or unethical, allow me to point your attention to some of the author's beliefs on the subject: http://www.iamgonnacopy.com/. furthermore, i opened up the file for educational purposes - i have no intention of claiming it as my own.

            So because someone else has an unethical bent, that means it's ok for you?

            Only if they said their work was for the public domain should you be doing
            this. Otherwise you're just a thief like anyone else who does that kind of
            stuff.

              i don't really feel like getting into a debate on ethics with you. i know what my intentions are and my conscience is clear.
