Flash Papervision3D Quake MD2 Model Viewer

February 2, 2011 at 9:51 pm

Quake Model Viewer I’ve recently been working in Papervision3D with some MD2 avatars. Since the MD2 format was originally designed for Quake II, I figured there were no better models to use than the actual game models. I’ll be releasing the code in a thorough tutorial on how to accomplish this, but in the meantime, you can see the Quake Model Viewer in action.

I’ve tied in the original sounds to the avatar actions, and the two player avatars have separate weapon models that work seamlessly within the viewer. I plan on rolling in some further improvements before releasing the full tutorial.

Open Source 3D

Lately I’ve been playing around with Blender, an open source 3D modeling and animation application, and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. Virtually anything that can be realized in commercial 3D programs can be done in Blender. I’ll be posting some tutorials soon on some of the techniques I’ve found useful within Blender and how your 3D models can be brought into Flash using Papervision3D.
