Free workshop – Getting started with Away3D

May, 06, 2010

The Friday the event starts, conference attendees are invited to attend a free full day workshop – compliments of Flash User Group Norway and the workshop host Jens Chr Brynildsen. You will however probably need to spend an extra night at Juvasshytta to manage to get to the workshop in the morning. The extra night, breakfast and dinner will cost you 810 NOK.


Learn how to use the realtime 3D engine Away3D. From the basics of setting it up to producing fully animated 3D scenes, this workshop will teach you what you need, from getting started to more advanced techniques. You’ll also learn how to continue expanding your knowledge after the workshop. We’ll start up with an overview of all the 3D engines that exist and how they differ from each other. We’ll look at speed, file size, ease of use as well as what features they offer. Then we’ll move on to Away3D and how to use it.

  • Setting up Away3D in your IDE
  • Using the view, scene and camera types
  • Primitives and imported models
  • Materials and lighting
  • Animation and tweening
  • Handling user interaction

If time allows, we’ll also go further than this. The workshop will also cover common pitfalls and how to avoid them as well as tips and tricks for optimizing performance.


This workshop is aimed at programmers and designers with some programming experience. You’ll use the development tool of your choice and all sample code will work on all platforms. The workshop will cover workflows for the most common development tools: Flex Builder, Flash CS3/4, FlashDevelop and FDT. The workshop will be in English.
