Export Stills from Adobe Premiere Pro using JavaScript

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 15:37:33 +0000

Most of the products in the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of applications have a scripting API that allows you to write JavaScript to automate tasks like moving layers around, adding patterns, or exporting images (e.g., Background repeats with Illustrator). However, while Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, and other apps have a menu option to run a […]

Using CSS to Display Fonts for Greek and Hebrew, but not English

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 20:26:12 +0000

If you have a website that mixes Latin characters languages like English or Spanish with characters from a non-Latin language like Greek, Hebrew, or Arabic it usually requires a lot of extra CSS classes and tags. The good news is that there’s an easier way. You can do all of this without tags for each language […]

Creating a Logo Background in Adobe Illustrator Using JavaScript

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 03:07:27 +0000

Today, my team was working on options for creating a backdrop like you see at red carpet events or press conference with repeating logos. In our case, we wanted something our graduates could stand in front of at a commencement ceremony to take photos with their families. One of our designers spent a lot of time manually positioning […]

Coloring Hebrew Vowels and Accents in HTML/CSS

Sat, 18 May 2013 21:37:47 +0000

In a recent conversation with a Hebrew professor, we discussed adding color to Hebrew vowels and accents. If you’re unfamiliar, Hebrew is different from most Western languages in two main ways. First, it reads right to left (or rtl in HTML terms) and second vowels are represented as dots and lines that can be above […]

Wed, 17 Apr 2013 18:31:11 +0000

You might have noticed that Google Glass is now shipping to early adopters and people who won the #ifihadglass competition. Google has also released their developer documentation, and this means we're about to start hearing about a lot of cool, new apps that people are building for Glass.

Drawing 3D Objects and Buildings on Google Maps

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 16:45:44 +0000

As a web developer for a school, I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of creating a good campus map. The school I work for has a growing online seminary program to train pastors around the world, but helping people get around the main campus in Dallas is a still an integral part of any school. TL;DR: Final result: DTS “3D” […]

How to Create a Responsive, Retina-ready Website

Wed, 12 Sep 2012 18:06:35 +0000

My team and I at Dallas Theological Seminary just finished putting together a new site that has both a responsive layout and Retina graphics, and I thought it would be worth documenting the decisions we made along the way and some of the tools we used. We are a pretty small team (we hired the […]

HTML5 Audio Karaoke – a JavaScript audio text aligner

Fri, 01 Jun 2012 14:55:18 +0000

What it Does Based on some amazing work by my friend Weston Ruter, I’ve put together a little library that mashes together some text (usually some HTML) an audio source reading that text (usually an mp3) a timing file (in this case, generated by CMU Sphinx) The result is that when you press “play” the […]

Cross-Browser Native Get/Set Properties in JavaScript

Wed, 02 May 2012 20:54:50 +0000

JavaScript Doesn’t Support Properties When I first created MediaElement a few years ago, I wanted to make a JavaScript object that fully mimicked the HTML5 Media API, but under the hood it might have a true 

HTML5 Video Wrapper for YouTube and Vimeo API – MediaElement

Mon, 28 Nov 2011 20:17:40 +0000

YouTube and Vimeo APIs YouTube and Vimeo have nice APIs to allow JavaScript developers to control the playback of embedded content (oh, and YouTube has a new design). They’ve also updated the APIs to use the newer > embed style instead requiring flash tags. But as powerful as those APIs are, they are not […]
