mr doob has posted a first away3d verses papervision3D test for the same model and found pv3d to be faster than away3D. Who wants to take the source and test it on Sandy?
Disclaimer: Test can vary on types of content and different systems or browsers to it is not a definitive test just one test, more will be coming and the faster it makes engines the better for adding more content to each project.
So far there are a few good flash 3d engines But it will all come down to performance for the best.
- Away3d (from pv3d – there are a few other revisions of pv3d like wow engine)
The top three are the only ones viable for full screen and projects that can cross into the commercial realm, other pixel level systems like scanline z-buffers in flash are really just tech showcases right now. The fast and dirty Painter’s Algorithm of Papervision and drawing things the fastest wins out when dealing with software rendering and processor based graphics. When and if 3d acceleration is added, that will change the game immensly.
