I checked out the Flash Bum interface and I was curious if you are referring to the interaction where the photos are scattered all over the screen and clicking them zooms in, or are you referring to how to UI is anchored to the side of the window (like the Ipod), so that resizing the browser resizes the UI?
If you want to create a resizable layout so that the UI lays out differently depending on the screen size, then you will need to take your Flash Catalyst design to Flex Builder. Currently, Flash Catalyst doesn't support resizable layouts and contraint-based layouts. We certainly recognize this is a valuable feature and plan to add it to Catalyst in the feature.
If you question is more about how the photos layout and zoom in and out, please elaborate about the problems you hit and I will try and help.
I understand that Catalyst doesn't support Flash Player scaling.
I was refering to the way his UI panned, spun, and zoomed in & out
on the content so that each picture once selected was in proper
I was going to scale may randomly dropped components to give the
illusion that the 'camera' was zooming in and out and make a page
per component where the group of components rotates and scales
on state change.
In doing so I also needed to scale, rotate, and pan all of my components
relitive to each other.
So I tried shift picking them all to scale them but Catalyst doesn't let me
do scaling on a group.
So I tried combining my components into one component and that
FAILed to work because I need to create a new page/state for each
components zoomed to and rotated to at the top level, any change
to the new 'grouped' component updates all of my top level page/states
to be the same because the change was maded on the component.
Something I thought would/should have been easy ended up being
a dead end for me. I'd think shift picking and/or grouping components
would/should let me scale, rotate, move as a group - instead my
component move closer/further but stay the same size on group scaling.
Also where do I post bugs? I know from other postings I've found
bugs with Catalyst running on Mac OS X 10.5.8 that don't appear
