Director's Third Dimension: Fundamentals of 3D Programming by Paul Catanese

By Paul Catanese

This ebook teaches with severe readability every thing you want to understand to software for Director/Shockwave 3D. A rarity among programming books as a result of the didactics, association, and clarity/accuracy of code. it's present with Director MX 2004 and that i suspect it truly is present with Director eleven given the knowledge Adobe simply published. you can't get it wrong with this one. the single challenge is that it truly is difficult to discover, I needed to purchase my reproduction from a reseller.

Sample text

This geometric information is referred to as a Mesh. A Mesh is comprised of Faces and Vertices. Vertices are points in a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. Faces are triangular surfaces formed by connecting three Vertices. Meshes are objects or sections of objects defined by collections of Faces. Modelresources are comprised of one or more Meshes. NOTE By default, spheres only have one Mesh, whereas boxes have six—one for each side. The number of Meshes that a Modelresource has is determined by its type and how it was created.

These two properties determine how detailed the geometry of the plane is. 4 illustrates how the geometry of the plane is subdivided into smaller sections with higher values for these properties. At this point, you will not need to increase this value, but it is useful if you are going to create wire-frame grids or if you need to create terrain. See Chapter 12, “Basic Control of Surfaces,” to learn about wire-frame surfaces and Chapter 28, “Mesh Deformation and Detailed Picking,” to learn about Mesh deformation.

Of course, there are similarities, too, but if you have avoided Lingo in the past, there is no way around it now. Lingo provides you with an impressive level of control over the 3D environment in Director as well as methods for creating your 3D worlds. Learning to create and control your 3D worlds is dependent on the particular paradigm of 3D set forth by the 3D Castmember. Therefore, we will start by covering the basics of this Castmember and the vocabulary used when talking about 3D. You’ll be provided with an orientation to this new feature so that you will be ready to begin 3D programming in Director.
