Creating output file of 3D motion

Creating output file of 3D motion

Creating output file of 3D motion

Hey everyone,

I've been recently getting myself familiar with Director for a project at work. I have a strong background in 3D modeling and animation, but I'm still getting my feet wet in the area of interactive media.

For this project I simply need to let the user rotate a 3-Dimensional model on all axes. I also need to set up an output file and record the rotation of either the camera or the object. (Depending on which the user is actually influencing)

I have some limited programming experience. I've used javaScript, but the syntax seems rougher than what Lingo uses, so I was hoping to work this out in Lingo.

So far I have all the scenes (made up of just a simple 3D object and lights) exported as .w3d files. Any direction in the form of helpful links, suggestions, or programming tips would be very appreciated.

Thanks for the help.

RE: Creating output file of 3D motion

Thanks, I've been checking out the info there and I think it is exactly what I've needed. I had another question, and I figured I could just put it here to keep the main thread listings a little bit cleaner.

Does Director mx 2004 ship with trackball support? If so, how difficult is it to work with?

Thanks again,
