As you probably know, Flash is a 2D program. However, there are a handful of open source 3D engines written in actionscript that allow real time 3D environments to be rendered within the flash player. Among these, is Papervision3D, which is probably the most powerful and widely adopted of the engines available.
In this tutorial, we will create a simple 3D gallery for a few photos. Before you get started, you will need to download Papervision3D, and make sure you have a class path within flash pointing to it’s location on your computer.
