Final Comments

Some things to remember:

  • 3D Scenes, Trees, and Flowers tend to be made up of MANY veracities, which makes them not ideal for turning into 3DS.
  • Optimize 3D Objects in 3D Studio Max before exporting as 3DS.
  • Create complex 3D Animation's in 3D Studio Max before exporting as 3DS.
  • Set up lighting, and camera animation's in 3D Studio Max as these WILL be usable in Swift 3D.
  • Use of space warps, mesh effects and other specialized 3D Studio Max items will not work in Swift 3D, however exporting individual frames as 3DS can allow you to cheat these effects.

Go to it download some 3DS files off any of the many resource sites around, and try, try, try. Maybe Flash Kit can start to offer a 3D Model section where users can place 3D Animation's exported from Swift for others to use....much like 3DCafe has 3D models?

» 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.
