I’ve been meaning to play with Papervision for awhile, but haven’t found the time. I finally squeezed in a little time to tinker, and the result is Yggdrasil 3D. The Yggdrasil is the world tree in Norse mythology that spans the underworld, earth and the heavens.
The scene is generated entirely programmatically (no prebuilt textures or models). Parts of it were harder than I expected, but I’m starting to get a good grip on it, and plan to do a series of experiments in ActionScript 3 and Papervision 3D.
Move your mouse around to view the tree from different angles. Click to generate a new random tree.
All around, Papervision is really fun to work play with. It still has some rough edges, but it’s one of the most exciting open source Flash projects out there right now and I’m really looking forwards to future builds.
