a new component for 3D studio max has arrived that allows you to export the geometry of you model directly into a format that actionscript 3 can understand. the plugin has options for exporting to papervision3D, away3D, and sandy3D. it was developed by seraf and can be downloaded here. and exporting a model couldnt be easier.
step 1. create you model, and select it
(you can tell its selected because of the white bounding box)

so for anyone who dousnt know, the demoscene is a community of programmers, artists, and musicians, who come together and create amazing graphic visualizations for or coupled by music. (mr.doob explains) at this years assemby07 the evoflash team of bombsquad went crazy! their demo, entitled ADHDTV is amazing. They combine realtime fluid dynamics, with 3D computational physics, enviorment mapping, raycasting, phong shading, dynamic lighting, and shadowing... now that's some sexy math!

woohoo! my new font graffonti is #2 on dafont.com's top 100 font list! if you don't know, dafont is the best free font site on the net. indexing 1000's of designers and font foundries. so to be font #2 (even for a day) is a pretty big honor! thanx everyone!
so i finally got a copy of adobe cs3 and flex builder2. flex is amazing, combining mxml and actionscript 3 together into a seamless package. now that im on the as3 tip, i decided to dive into papervision3D. pv3d is a set of actionscript classes that are used to create 3D objects within the flash environment. it's currently in beta and the source code is only available to osflash emailing list members. so if you want it signup here. thanx to carlos for creating pv3d, and to his girlfriend for convincing him to release the project open source!
i just found this zip on wiinintendo.net. someone made a flawless wiimote in 3D studio max. i can see a use for this in future projects...
as i have been checking out the new features of actionscript 3 and flex, i stumbled upon fwiidom.org. this site is run by joa ebert + thibault imbert, and their mission is full flash wiimote integration.
currently wiiflash supports multiple wiimotes and nunchuks, the classic controller, as well as pc sensor bars. all you need is a bluetooth enabled pc (or adaptor) and a wiimote.
the newest version is available from wiiflash or googlecode or you could get on the mailing list
the time is has finally come. my new font site is online. i have meticulously updated all my older fonts, and reinvented my type foundry. i currently have 21 fonts for download. type|size=0 is dead. long live the fontvir.us!
