London Flash Platform User Group (30/04/2009)

2009_04_header

In a couple of hours I’m going to listen Seb Lee-Delisle and Carlos Ulloa talking about Papervision 3D.

From the London Flash Platform User Group website:

Papervision3D, Simplified (19:00 – 20:00) – Seb Lee-Delisle
Finally! Realtime 3D in Flash is taking off and there has never been more demand for 3D games, apps and websites. And naturally, with such a powerful library comes somewhat of a steep learning curve.

This session will cover how to create 3D objects in code, import them from other 3D apps and even make a simple game.

We Make. You Enjoy (20:15 – 21:15) – Carlos Ulloa

Dive deep into the third dimension with the creator of Papervision3D and discover the secrets behind his latest interactive 3D experience, HelloEnjoy.com.

The session will focus on the techniques, workflow and planning necessary to overcome the creative and technical challenges of real time 3D in Flash, giving an inside view of the entire creation process, from concept and planning, to development and art production.
