Flash is a pretty stupid app to do 3d in. It's done as more of a "I wonder if I can do that" than a practical thing. I wrote a basic 3d engine for a game I did, and it was a pain in the butt. Flash can't communicate with hardware directly, so everything runs SLOW. That's not to say it can't be fun, but you're far better with director.

Here's the best use of 3d in Flash I've seen...

absolutely,.. but for simple things this is great though.
no need to install yet another plugin.

looks like this'll work great for the next project.
but as for competing with other 3D appz, plugins, I agree, Flash is pain that way.

Flash 10 is supposed to make things faster. I've played with Papervision3D and found that the only acceptable results are when you bake the surfaces in LW, etc. and use Flash for basic stuff like navigating the scene or moving the objects. The aliasing especially is quite bad at this point.

Agreed on the baking. (not all in the above examples is 3d).

that's 3d rendered video...nice but not live 3d really...

much like the site i helped create for felix catfood with lightwave.

The 3D specs for Flash CS4 really disappointed me. Photoshop and AfterEffects both have more robust 3D object support that goes beyond manipulating planes, which I had hoped to see in Flash as well.

I've been using Director for a while now, but Adobe doesn't seem real interested in its development. That leaves me wondering where Adobe sees its future in the world of 3D interactivity.

Very nice. What's really impressive to me is the low load on the CPU (most 3D Flash apps really hog the CPU). Do you know what they used?

Flash is still in its infancy for 3D.

Adobe is well aware of the 3D movement on the platform. At some point we will see hardware acceleration, and then things will really begin.

Keep 3D in Flash simple for now, but keep paths open for expansion.

Thanks for sharing. I love this example for so many reasons.
Overall, it's interactivity at its best. Love the popup books.

seems it will be open source once released,

yeah i'm crossing my fingers it becomes available as either open source or as a commercial app that works on it's own or with other apps like flash.

it's certainly THE best 3d wrapped in a flash swf so far.

Impressive to write your own 3D engine.... but why?
Isn't Papervision adequate? I haven't done any big projects with it yet, to be honest.

EDIT:
Guess not, too slow, outdated. Here's a writeup, also read the comments:

Looks like we were right about http://ecodazoo.com/ - it just won the FWA site of the year award! See http://www.thefwa.com/?app=articles&id=122.

The extra sheep coat hanging inside was a stroke of pure brilliance. It almost made me cry. (I hope that's not a spoiler, since this is the 2nd page.)

Is there a way to zoom in on the credits?
