This is an object viewer that lets you view objects in 360 degrees, a 3D object in the Flash CS3 and AS2 environment.
This is a CS3, AS2 document template. It`ll help to rotate a 3D object or the environment of rendered images through 360 degrees. The component is fully customizable. The template 126 shows off 126 images in a 7 rows by 18 columns arrangement. To create your own, you just have to import your images into the library to replace the sample images. Image manipulations possible with this tool include spin the object, rotate with your mouse, zoom in/out, move, and re-centre the object. The publisher has another component that handles 252 images and lets the user manipulate a multi layer 3D environment. Performance wise these animations work faster than a 3D viewer based on XML. Also it does not affect other animations on the page. XML generators and controllers within a webpage loads computer resources and power. More than one XML generator within the same page could be a significant load on a laptop or portable device.
The component uses a series of rendered images to show the animations. Thus the product needs to be supplied with these images, a help document tells you what sequences of image needs to be generated by a 3D product you use. The operations you have available are spin, zoom, move, re-center etc. Other features that are useful include auto hide of the toolbar, a pre-loader, image smoothing of images imported, which can be of a range of sizes. The images in these object viewer are embedded into a single flash file. Once loaded from the web, performance is usually quite good. So if you need a 3D viewer, here`s a good tool!
