As3DMod on go ahead! and Mccoys websites

Posted by on Apr 2, 2010 in Blog, inboxDMG | 2 Comments

Last year I was playing around with AS3DMod. Its a fantastic set of libraries that help you add deformation onto 3d forms within actionscript. You can read more about it here http://www.everydayflash.com/blog/index.php/2008/09/03/as3dmod/.
I was very excited by it and tried to find ways to include it into the projects that I was working on at the time. I controlled its parameters with tweenMax to create a flying, bendy postcard effect for goahead.co.uk Its is something that I wanted to do more with, possibly converting it to unity to see how it would fare on the iPhone , recently I was reminded of it when making updates to the go ahead! website for their new a Race for Life promotion.

I also played with As3DMod some more when I had an opportunity to recreate a book, “page flip”, turning effect that I had created a couple of years prior to enable us to make ebrochures. It seemed perfect to use As3DMod with away 3d to create a flexible page turning engine. The Mccoy’s website required a book section called “the man guide“. While the content for the man guide became more bespoke through its design process, it became next to impossible to create a CMS as with my previous page flip “template”. Nonetheless it still works with different sized movie clips as individual pages and consists of a default class to handle pages that can be extended for more bespoke pages such as the contents page etc.
