Hacks #35-41

Flash Player is somewhat underpowered in terms of computational and animation speed. Therefore, processor-intensive applications, such as 3D, are problematic in Flash. Flash doesn't include any native 3D ActionScript commands or 3D hardware support, unlike Macromedia Director (which supports the Shockwave 3D format).

However, good design is all about knowing the system, working within its limits, and hacking around the obstacles with a bit of lateral thinking or by simplifying the problem. Regardless, while being able to rotate and zoom a 3D model of a wristwatch before you buy it is cool, most customers are more impressed by good 2D photography and proper graphic design in the product presentation.
