Another PV3D Material demo : Flash 9 Phong Shading.

We are still very busy sorting the new revision of PV3D out, and it will still take a little time, so I decided to quickly demo one of the other new materials (and next to this we have even more, so we’ll have some more demo’s coming). Visually less extreme then the bumpmapping effect we have, (fast/fake) phong shading makes materials smoothly lit. Visually, this improves alot in the quality compared to z flat or lambert flat shading, and gives the impression of a nice and smooth surface. It will offer multiple settings, allowing you to modify the surface properties, lighting color and angles, etc.

So, while we work on on the new revision, here’s a little demo.

    Great work Ralph! I hope yer buffing your fingernails on your lapel whilst reviewing what you have just accomplised. It rips at lightning speed in this browser. I am still developing in PV3D AS 2.0 as they do not have a Flash 9 Preview Beta for MacIntel yet. I am gonna drop this comment for you and go write a tutorial on the basics for the newbies joining the list.

    Is the source for this demo available anywhere? I’m trying to find an example of loading a texture-mapped DAE file, and then applying phong or Gouraud shading on the texture, and this looks perfect.
