Flash ‘Molehill’ is finally here!

28 Feb

I was wondering when Adobe would add full 3D support to the Flash player, so I was not very surprised to see the first demo videos of Flash ‘Molehill‘ a little while ago. Needless to say, I’m impressed. Especially the fact that many 3D engines already support Molehill is rather interesting. Looks like Adobe worked pretty closely with the 3D engine developers.

On the other hand I must say it was about time that Adobe released this version of Flash. There are many nice WebGL demos out there and the JavaScript 3D scene seems to be growing every day. I think it was a good move to start the Incubator system. It gives developers the chance to preview the latest version of Flash.

Personally, I can’t wait to get my hands on this new version and start experimenting a little bit. I am a little bit afraid the low-level programming might scare me off, but we’ll see. In the meanwhile, have a look at the impressive demo from the Away3D team:
