Create highly interactive 3D scenes to win prizes!
I've teamed up with Electric Rain and we've put together the 3D Flash World Contest! Use 3D models and other graphics to create your own dynamic 3D scene in Flash that you can navigate around and view from different camera angles. The deadline is a good two months from now on November 24, and the prizes are Xpress(the new Swift 3D Extenstion for MX2004), Swift3dV3, and Optimaze. But more than that this is a good chance to display your design, creative, coding, or 3D modeling skills.

On my site, I've posted a 3dworld.fla I made for you to get started and put together a Model Tutorial on how to add your own graphics and models. In order to keep consistent with the erain site, Jim Foley helped me out with the design:). Thanks Jim.

And for those of you who want to learn the code, i've included an optional, interactive 'Code Breakdown' section that has broken down the code into 3 sections and the main 3d code into 7 steps.

Also, there is a FAQ page in the 'Support' section on the tutorial page, that is empty at the moment, but please feel free to post a couple questions that you might have in the comments of this post.

Good luck! I look forward to seeing many cool entries!
