Elisha Seely Resume 2.7: A lot of this info is below

Code Samples:
.7z archiver: 7zip < Covers .rar and .zip and doesn’t ask you to buy it!
I’ve not messed much with copy-write and license stuff, so just consider these museum pieces. Look, don’t use.
Olik’s Redemption Camera and Rails (C++) Click Here to Download .7z

This is the camera rail system I created and maintained. It uses 4-CV bezier curves which we exported from maya, as well as a directional rail, with planes on each end. All of this is to allow the camera to know where to be based on the player’s position. Using a soft attach and look, it created the smooth cinematic cameras seen in Olik’s Redemption.

AS3 Gates and ProgressTracker utility classes Click Here to Download .zip (Mediafire)

This is a test project for the AS3 (open and run in FlashDevelop) logic classes I developed. Their use is meant to be very generic, but I’ve found my common use is handling asynchronous loading for completion and progress tracking. Makes aggregate load bars a lot easier.
