I'm looking for an alternative to a java-based 3D display
I've been working on, using WireFusion. It is a 3d art placement
interface for t-shirt printing companies which allows customers to
place their artwork on a 3D shirt, move it around and scale it,
etc. Director11 looks like it could be a possible solution, but I
have a few specific needs and haven't been able to find the
1. does it support UV mapped surfaces?
2. can I apply a flash movieclip/swf as a uv-mapped surface
3. if I have interactive elements in those movieclips
(specifically draggable images) will they also be interactive on
the 3D model?
4. Can the director output (shockwave?) be displayed in an
adobe AIR environment?
There's a demo of what I'm trying to accomplish at
if it helps to see what I need. The form on that page is not what
will be used, just a generic output from wirefusion to test all the
can click on the 'send "on" to front art' button to display the
artwork on the front of the shirt, and you'll be able to drag it
Thanks in advance for any help/advice... this project has
been very frustrating, and I need to make a decision which way to
go here. I'm not really happy with the current java solution to
begin with (tho it does what I need it to), and I would really like
to build the intranet portion of the project in AIR, which won't
display java applets.
You will however take a small performance hit on using flash
as a texture and implementing the drag can be fiddly if you have
multiple textures to drag, but it should be possible to solve.
Don't see why you would need to use flash tho.
Director do not support AIR, you can however publish to an
exe file (called a projector) if that's what you were looking
