Rendering it

The last thing left to do is render the object. This will get a little complex, though. But just one function will do.

Copy and paste the following code into the actionscript window:

function render () {
for (i=0; i != lines; i++) {
with (line[i]) {
_visible = true;
_x = vertex[line[i].a].dx;
_y = vertex[line[i].a].dy;
_xscale = vertex[line[i].b].dx-vertex[line[i].a].dx;
_yscale = vertex[line[i].b].dy-vertex[line[i].a].dy;
for (i=0; i != points; i++) {
with (vertex[i]) {
_x = dx;
_y = dy;
_xscale = 75+(((((500-z3[i])/10)*30)/100)*(-1));
_yscale = 75+(((((500-z3[i])/10)*30)/100)*(-1));
_alpha = ((((z3[i]*(-1))+500)/10));


Two For loops, one for drawing the lines and other for drawing the vertices are given. In the first loop, we change the x, y, xscale and yscale values of each line movieclip. Next, in the second loop, we change the x and y co-ordinates of the vertex movieclips. The xscale, yscale and alpha properties are adjusted so that they add more 'depth' realism to the scene. They are just some formulae created by me.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
