Dynamic deformation, or morphing of 3D mesh surface, is a widely-used technique in 3D content development. That can be achieved via several ways. You can morph the geometry by moving individual vertices or faces manually. A more elegant and easier way is to use specially developed modifier libraries such as
AS3DMOD for this purpose. (See Chapter 10, Integration with Open Source Libraries). However, before you run for a non-Away3D solution, you should know that the library has reserved a special class named
Morpher that resides in the
In the following example, you will learn how to morph a sphere primitive in runtime using the Away3D Morpher tool.
Set up a new Away3D scene using
AwayTemplate as the ...
