Chapter 12. Creating 3-D Effects in Flash > Using Third-Party 3-D Software

Using Third-Party 3-D Software

Both Swift 3D and Vecta3D are nifty and inexpensive little programs that any Flash developer can afford as part of a toolkit. These packages enable you to quickly import and animate 3ds objects, EPS or AI files, primitive shapes, or text and then export the animation as an SWF for use in Flash.

Although both programs allow you to animate models of significant complexity, they’re most effectively used for simpler, low-polygon (surface facets) shapes that work well with rotational type animations.
