So, put on your adventure gear and dive in! The old fashioned way Imagine a medieval world in which all combat is performed with traditional weapons such as swords. This is like previous versions of Flash, where everything is done without hardware 3D acceleration. Suddenly, magic is discovered. It changes everything. This is like the invention of Molehill. Tried and trusted techniques and tools still work very well. Now, however, an additional element exists which can be added to the mix, to add a little sparkle, to add a dash of magic.
For example, the x-axis (the first number in a Vector3D) typically represents the left-right movement. The y-axis is most commonly used for the up-down movement, and the z-axis describes the in-out movement (that is, moving from close to the camera to far away from the camera). In a normal 3D scene, when the z coordinate increases the object, it is seen to be smaller because it is farther away from the screen. Vectors actually have a fourth component, w, but it is rarely used. It is handy to store a rotation.
How is everything put together? What is this "Stage3D" we keep hearing about? Flash 11 graphics are incredibly fast. As we saw in Chapter 1, the reason that it runs so efficiently is that Adobe made the intelligent decision to make your video card do all the work. Molehill does not do things the way you are used to. If you are familiar with 2D Flash programming in AS3, it will feel like you are exploring a strange and unfamiliar land. This exploration of the unknown is exciting and new. So, put on your adventure gear and dive in!
