Summary

Now that you’ve taken a look at a couple of different ways to approach incorporating 3-D in your Flash movies, you should be ready to start adding 3-D to your own projects. You can develop your effects yourself in Flash, or you can use third-party tools such as Swift 3D or Vecta3D to help you quickly create much more complex images.

Where do you go from here? If you’re interested in working with 3-D models but are unable to invest in a package such as 3ds max, LightWave 3D, or SOFTIMAGE|3D, you can find a large number of wire-frame 3-D models on the Internet that you can import into either Swift 3D or Vecta3D and then alter to fit your needs. A couple of sites that you can check are www.3dcafe.com/asp/meshes.asp and www.digitalproducer.com/aHTM/HomeSet.htm.
