    3D Flash Animator 4.9.5 is now available

    You can download 4.9.5 from ...


    3DFA’s language is gradually being upgraded for compatibility with Actionscript 3. The new language looks almost the same as the old one, with some enhancements, and in most cases 3DFA will maintain backward compatibility.

    For example, Actionscript 3 uses .x and .y for the position of an element. But 3DFA still understands position.x and position.y although these are no longer recommended.

    In a few rare cases however, backward compatibility could not be maintained. For example, in this and all future versions of 3DFA, the .alpha property ranges from 0 to 1 instead of 0 to 100, so you may need to modify some of your old projects. 3DFA allows you to use the Actionscript 2 property ._alpha which ranges from 0 to 100, so you only need to add the underscore rather than change any values.

    Actionscript 3 also uses .scaleX and .scaleY which range from 0 to 1, but your old projects will still work with the old scale.x and scale.y properties which range from 0 to 100. 3DFA also accepts the old Actionscript 2 properties of ._xscale and ._yscale.

    The .rotation property remains the same.

    Once the Flash 9 export has been completed, you’ll start to notice some significant improvements, like smaller swf sizes, fast interactive 3D, heaps of additional functionality, and the ability to utilize AS3 source code from Flash tutorial websites.

    Of course, 3DFA users will also benefit from 3DFA’s intuitive interface which will continue to make it easy to add complex functionality without needing to write copious amounts of code.

    Beware that any projects saved from the new version cannot be opened using previous versions, so please backup your old project files first.

    Please send any bug reports to the website email address.
