] 3D engine for dynamic text Has anyone tried Unity 3D? Do you know if it works with flash. I have that one and was wanting to try it out, just hadn't yet. Worth the time or no? There is also Swift 3D which has been updated recently (I believe). Swift 3D works with vectors well as far as I could

Papervision3D - fantastic library, very capable, but dead. Away3D - fantastic library, active community, still being supported (last I heard) Sandy3D - smaller, less capable as far as I know, not sure if it's still in development Alternativa - very capable, still being supported (I assume),

Hi, Also checkout FIVe3d http://five3d.mathieu-badimon.com/ It's been around a whileand looks like the code was last updated in 2011, but for just rendering text in vector format, I found it was really nice and simple to use. There are some examples on that page to check outand some of

I completely agree, Away3d or Alternative is a safe bet. Away3d is part of the adobe gaming development kit, together with starling and scout etc. I don't think the learning curve will bury you, but that probably depends more on setting realistic expectations than anything else ;) On Jan

I agree with the guys here on considering Away3D as a first choice. However, let me also include another library, very similar to away3D Alternativa regarding specs and benchmarks, but also including a cleaner 3D asset integration pipeline: Flare3D. Let me know if you have more questions.
