Meet LoaderMax

The white zone is no longer for loading and unloading only. These days we need to pause, resume, prioritize, queue up, and more. But why stop there? Why not delegate some of the responsibilities and make your life easier?

What if your loader set up the work for you, monitored the progress of other loaders, and even automatically handled display and playback of some of those tasty bits you're loading? Meet LoaderMax--the ultimate AS3 loader/preloader/bulkloader, and brought to you by GreenSock, maker of the animation tweening packages TweenLite/Max and TimelineLite/Max.

This session will cover a lorry load of features offered by this tiny giant (only 7-15k!), with plenty of examples and source code. From the basic (loading a single item) to the advanced (nested loaders, integrated subloading, and more), attendees of every skill level, and users of will benefit.

Rich will even be giving away some Club GreenSock memberships--full of goodies like TweenLite plugins (like motion blur, physics, and custom transformations), classes for liquid layout and text animations, access to beta programs and source updates, and more!
