As I was putting the effects for this application together, I found it easier to build a small wrapper class around the effects infrastructure to address the following issues:
- You can’t use databinding.
- You can’t easily create combinations of effects that apply to mulitple targets.
- Unless your effects fit naturally into the sequence/parallel framework, it can be hard to choreograph your effects.
- It’s hard to tell when a complex set of effects ends, because the effectEnd event is sent from the target, not from the effect.
These are all things we are looking into changing for 2.0, but you can address these issues now, with 1.5, using the following wrapper classes.
