Setting up Flash to use the Papervision 3D software.

Once you have successfully installed Papervision 3D you must then set up Flash to access it. This involves letting Flash know where it can find the Papervision 3D classes on your computer.

Open Flash (CS4 used here). From the Edit Menu, choose Preferences. In the Preferences window, choose the Actionscript category.

Choose the Actionscript 3.0 Settings button.

Next to Source Path, select the folder icon (Browse to Path). Navigate to the Papervision3D folder you created earlier, then drill down and select the folder indicated in the screen shot below. Papervision3D\as3\trunk\src. The exact path that you use will depend on where you created your own Papervision3D folder.

Once the folder has been selected, you should see the following screen - click OK to finish.

Flash settings

That's Flash now set up to use Papervision 3D.

» 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.
