101º Macaco and the Coca-Cola Virtual Community with Flare3D

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

101º Macaco is a brand specialized advertising agency located in Fortaleza, Brazil. In 2013 they developed a virtual community for Coca Cola using Flare3D. The experience worked as support for The Coca Cola Festival. The goal was to revitalize the Coca Cola brand among the teens audience in the city of Fortaleza. The campaign was a success. This video shows the creation process and the final results.

About the experience

The Coca Cola Festival was created exclusively for the teen audience in the city of Fortaleza. The event took place in November 2013 at the Marina Park Hotel with attractions by Pollo, Micael Borges and Manu Gravassi. An interactive application for facebook using Flare3D was created some time prior to the actual Festival. Through this application the audience created their own festival version via a portal in the style of “The Sims” game using personal photos and various environments allowed by the application. Then the participants invited through Facebook their own friends to their created festival.

The participant with the greater number of friends became the master of the festival. His virtual festival was replicated on the real stage with personalized photos. It also allowed him access  backstage and was able to interview the performers.

AGAL2 will be supported in the next Flare3D version

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Adobe, recently released a beta version of Flash Player 14 and AIR 14. This version includes the new Stage3D “Standard” profile containing the new AGAL2 improvements. We ‘ve been working at it and now Flare3D is ready to use all the cool stuff added in the upcoming Flash version.

AGAL2

What does it  include? Here is a list of some of the new features:

  • Multiple Render Texture (MRT)
  • Anisotropic filters
  • Conditional forward jump
  • Floating point textures (RGBA_HALF_FLOAT)
  • Partial derivatives (ddx, ddy)
  • Fragment depth (od)

How can I use these new features? These new features will be officially available in the next Flare3D version. Meanwhile, you can get a Flare3D’s Dev build in our Forum that include the mentioned features. In the same place you will find an example that shows how to use the new features. Notice that you also need Flash 14 to test AGAL2 capabilities. A beta version can be downloaded here. If you want to see a live action demo, take a look over the work of New NakStudio. They were one of the first to try the new Flare3D’s Dev build, using the new features to make a couple of cool demos that you can test on their website.
