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.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
