Flash Gets Sexier with Hundreds of Thousands of z-Buffered Triangles

Adobe Labs has a new Flash Player version available right now! Go git ya some. Here’s the skinny on what it adds to Flash…

Today, Adobe Flash Player 10.1,renders thousands of non z-buffered triangles at approximately 30 Hz. With the new 3D APIs, developers can expect hundreds of thousands of z-buffered triangles to be rendered at HD resolution in full screen at around 60 Hz. Using the new 3D APIs in Flash Player and AIR will make it possible to deliver sophisticated 3D experiences across almost every computer and device connected to the Internet.

Sounds purty sweet right. Well I gave it a shot with the demo game linked up in the labs, and indeed it is. Exciting times ahead. Also there’s been some talk about Unity exporting to Flash now. Hmmm.

    Justin, it is great news indeed. I’ve been also playing with Unity3d for a while and the idea of having then working together is the best new I got this week (and it’s only Monday)
    BTW, any changes of getting some Unity3D tutorials on CartoonSmart? You should give it a go too…
