Papervision3D Effects for Flex

Introduction

Last Wednesday during the first Singapore Flex User Group meet, I spoke about the framework that Tink (a.k.a. Stephen Downs) has created, which integrates Papervision3D with Flex to create 3D effects.

Effects in Flex are simple to apply and if used correctly enhance the UI. This session will show you how to apply and build 3D effects for Flex using Papervision3D. – Tink

Examples
Getting Started
  • Tink’s framework
    1. View any of the above examples.
    2. Right click -> View Source
    3. Download the source zip file.
    4. After extracting, the folder “ws” in the folder “[source path] as3″ is what you need.
  • Papervision3D’s framework
    1. Download here or get it from the homepage.
    2. After extracting, the folders in the folder “src” are what you need.

Place the two frameworks in your project’s “src” folder (or whatever that you name it), and you can tap on the power of PV3D in your Flex app! 😉

I learnt all that I learnt about the framework from Tink’s presentation, so be sure to check it out to understand what is going on behind the scenes, and the possibilities of creating your very own PV3D effects! 😀

    Hey cool stuff.

    I still need to get this stuff into subversion so that it can be acessed easily, and there have alos been some updates by other devs for Flex 3.0 that i need to make accessable. I’ll try an sort that over the next week or so.
