How can someone emulate the wobble plugin effect from compiz - Beryl composite window manager for Linux within Flex?
Id like to apply this effect to the movement of My MXML components...

I remember reading a post on someone achieving this effect in flex and I've dug it back up for you.

http://manuel.bit-fire.com/2008/09/04/compiz-like-wobbling-windows-in-as3/

If you download the demo source code that is provided you should be able to tinker with this on your own to get the effect looking how you want.

Then once you've done that you can just extend the Panel class to use these functions correctly. It uses a rasterizer to achieve the effect and isn't very hard on the processor.

I remember playing with it a little bit but i was more focused on solid functionality at the time.

I played with this yesterday and the code is perfect I mean the fact he did it in pure AS3 was great he left it upto the user to choose if he wants to add the flex framework, which I did :) and the code was clean easy to add features to like flv support, Image display support which I already added + you can now add this effect to AIR apps and flex components this is exactly what I was looking for Ill be releasing all my code once the EQubee OS project is released...
I love Manuel's code it made things so easy...
I mean take a look at image: several videos + a picture including transparency effects and support within AIR all in a days work...

Dude! thx for this great find.
