Adobe are planning to bring a full 3D update to their Flash software at the LA based Max Conference this October.
The “Flash Player 3D Future” demo Adobe are hoping to display will be a fully fledged 3D affair, a a big jump forward for the platform apparently rather than the dabblings shown previously in Flash 10.
Product manager Imbert Thibault was pretty gushing in his blog report on Adobe’s work: “I tell you, some serious stuff is coming for 3D developers. If you are into 3D development for games, augmented reality, or just interactive stuff like Web sites, you just can’t miss the session.”
Will 3D compatibility give Flash a much needed boost after being run into the ground by Apple’s Steve Jobs? With confidence in HTML5 growing more with each passing day, Adobe need to pull out all the stops to cement Flash’s position as a relevant plug-in for web design.
The 3D demo is listed as being shown on the 27th of October, with Adobe’s keynote conference happening two days earlier. Expect to hear more about Flash’s 3D advances then.
