Fire-Fly on SourceForge
Fire-Fly is hard to categorize. The program animates three dimensional surfaces as they grow
and morph in between one another. The animation is relaxing to watch and has several customizable
features, including color balance, scale, and speed and for some reason it has a built in mp3 player.
Fire-Fly was first concieved by Aaron Golden and has been under development by Aaron Golden and
Tim Omernick since february 26, 2002.

Fire-Fly doesn't need many instructions. The instructions that you do need will appear when you open
the program for the first time. If you need to see them again, select "Firefly Help"
from the Help menu when the program is running.
Just relax, play with it, and have fun.
Fire-Fly currently supports the following features (besides the basic animation):
1. A color balance controller
2. Speed and scale preferences
3. An mp3 player accessed through the "Jukebox" item in the "Windows" menu
Don't worry, about a thing, do do do do do do do do...
