Yes I do know what ecommerce means. But this is what the client wanted and we went back and forth about it. The funcitionality is not the best because we where so limited on budget and what the client wanted. We had to sacrifice some functionality for the look of the site.
You can go through the house and pickout items and then purchase them. If you don't want to use the flash portion of the site you don't have too. This is a very very basic ecommerce site.
Like I said this site is by one of my colleagues, this is also his first flash site. This site was also very low budget and limited him to using swift generator instead of Macromedia generator which would of let him have creat the dynamic data with greater ease.
The reason I am showing you the site is because of its 3D house.
The 3D aspects of the house where all created with Swift 3d. As seeing that the software is not ideally created for this type of production that is why I wanted to show it. It pushed the capabilities of Swift 3D to it's limits.
We used the house as an experiment to test the software and to achieve what the customer wanted. There are very few movies in the actual animation that make up the house. Which include the fly in and the movies for navigation.
I needed a frame reference to test the site. When you click on an object and change pages, it goes back to the same frame. In addition, it will turn different directions according to the frame number. 1-18 turns right 19-36 turns left. I just left the frame reference there to show that it returns to the same frame.
