Papervision 3D Programming Tutorial - BitmapViewport

In previous demos I have shown how you can add some of the normal Flash effects to individual Papervision 3D objects, allowing you to blur, modify colors and add a glow to a 3D object. In addition to adding effects to objects, you can also add effects to the whole view port thanks to the BitmapViewport3D class. The BitmapViewport3D has a bitmap Data Property, which you can then apply a filter to with the applyFilter function. You simply supply the same standard Flash effects classes, like Blur, to the applyFilter function after rendering the scene.

New to Papervision 2.0 is the aptitude to slice a mesh into two parts. If you have every watched the movie  Cube then you’ll have an idea what I am talking about .

When I was looking for documentation about displaying animations in Papervision the general agreement was to use the DAE class and load up an animated Collada mesh.
