Defqon.1

April 9, 2010 by

Monty Python meets MadMax in this fully interactive journey. Hanazuki studio created this trippy experience website for the biggest HardStyle festival in the world, called Defqon.1.

In this zoo of technologies and opensource libraries, Papervision3D (for flash player 10) is used for the main navigation of the site.

Digimi Avatars

March 31, 2010 by

Digimi is a very nice Avatar-Generator and library of creative assets for Games & Virtual Worlds. It is also a platform and a set of web services for game developers to be able to generate high end characters for a minimal development effort. You can see it in action here.

Following a successful merger of DAZ-3D and Gizmoz, the joint company company provides a central solution to design, manage and transport high-quality digital characters that can be deployed in virtual worlds, cross-platform games, social networks, mobile applications and professional modelling and animation tools.

Digimi has been using Papervision3D for a long while now and it came natural to select the engine to showcase their product in a real time browser based environment. As such Digimi is ready to supply the PV3D community with Actionscript 3 classes and code samples that will assist in integration of the Digimi SDK to Flash development in general and Papervision in particular.

Inside their new developer centre, you will find their up to date API documentation and full avatar creation offering as well as latest news with regards to the Digimi SDK.

This is an impressive project we’ve been following for a while and a fantastic tool for game developers who want to include 3D avatars in their game without the pain of building them from scratch. Hope you find it good uses for it!

Hanazuki Case History

Hanazuki Case History

Hanazuki studio decided to go with papervision style to realize the case history page. They took an unusual approach to this type of content and created an unique user experience.

This impressive piece makes an interesting use of textures to deliver that experience. On a side note; it is using the latest version of Papervison3D which can take advantage of the 3D rendering functionality provided by Flash Player 10.
