Flash-Photo-Galerien: Airtight Interactive zeigt es schlicht und in 3D

Felix Turner (aka "Airtight Interactive") hat bereits mit seiner Open-Source-Galerie "SimpleViewer" gezeigt, wie man Flash im positiven einsetzen kann. Jetzt zeigt er sein neuestes Projekt "TiltViewer", wie man Bilder-Galerien in 3D anzeigen kann, ohne dass dies reiner Selbstzweck ist.


"SimpleViewer is a free, customizable Flash image viewing application."

"TiltViewer allows you to browse Flickr’s most interesting images in a 3D space. Images are pulled from Flickr’s Interestingness list.
TiltViewer was built using Away3D, a branch of Papervision. Currently Away3D provides better handling of mouse events for nested 3D Objects. One limitation of Away3D is that there is no access to a 3D object’s sprite, so you can’t apply filter or alpha effects. I’m guessing that soon these features will be added to both engines.
Does a 3D UI give more functionality than the equivalent 2D interface? No, but its certainly a lot cooler! Part of the motivation to build this was to explore ways to make 3D interfaces simple and intuitive.
Being able to load Flickr images into a 3D engine was recently made possible when Flickr added crossdomain XMLs to it’s image servers. Thanks Flickr!"
