Billboarding in Papervision3D 2.0 using DisplayObject2D
As mentioned on the about page Tweetpond displays tweet content using standard Flash TextFields that are rendered as part of the 3D scene. This is often called billboarding or point sprites.
Our DisplayObject2D implementation is based on the following sources:
- DisplayObject2D by Blitz Agency
- Revision for Papervision3D 2.0 by Sleepy Design.
Our implementation solves the Z-ordering issues reported when using DisplayObject2D with Papervision3D 2.0.
We recently received a request to share our version with the community so here you go! You can download the ActionScript3 class files below:
This code is released under the MIT licence, same as Papervision3D. To get an idea on how to use this class please see this post by Blitz Agency and source comments.
Please feel free to share your project that makes use of DisplayObject2D below!
