Sample text

And in many cases it’s done automatically without the user even knowing it’s being performed. Consider translation, for example, when you explicitly set the z property of a display object to a numeric value, the object automatically creates a 3D transformation matrix. It all happens behind the scenes giving you more time to concentrate on building stellar 3D experiences. Translation Adding a native z coordinate, in Flash 10, enables you to treat z just as you’ve treated x and y in the past. But using translation doesn’t just mean you’re traveling in a straight line.

Adding a Camera Along with 3D comes the concept of a camera. Theoretically a camera is just a point in 3D space that acts as a point of view of that space. Changing the position of your camera lets you change your view in your 3D world. But in reality your camera isn’t moving, it’s just offsetting everything else in relation to itself. So for example, if you want your camera to move through a maze, you have to move the maze around your camera – not the camera around the maze. Programmatically you accomplish this by creating a camera object and giving it x, y, and z values.

Its incorporation into Papervision3D as the primary way to bring in 3D models may have been premature. Not because there’s anything wrong with the Collada platform, but because most 3D modeling programs don’t export a version of Collada that works with Papervision3D. At the time of writing of this book, there wasn’t a Blender Collada exporter for Papervision3D, and the 3DSMax exporters for Papervision3D only worked with certain versions of 3DSMax. But there are other options. In this book, you find out how to create XML exporters (essentially pared down Collada files) that work for both Papervision3D and Flash 10.
