Electric Rain Launches Swift 3D Xpress for Flash MX 2004

Flash 3D creation plugin 'coming soon' for Mac OS X By Dave Nagel
Electric Rain has announced Swift 3D Xpress, a plugin for Macromedia Flash MX 2004, which allows for the creation and manipulation of 3D objects within the Flash authoring environment. The new version is available now for Windows, with a Mac OS X release expected "soon."

Swift 3D is a Flash 3D manipulation tool, offering the ability to extrude 2D objects and apply preset or custom materials to objects. It includes a variety of bevel styles, preset lighting schemes, drag and drop animations, import of vector-based artwork, raytracing, round-trip editing of 3D movie clips and vector rendering with the RAViX III render engine.


Swift 3D Xpress is available now as an extension to Flash MX 2004 for WIndows. No specific date has been given for the Mac OS X release, but the company says it will be available "soon." (The Swift 3D standalone application is already available for Mac OS X.) Swift 3D Xpress is priced at $99. For more information, visit http://www.erain.com.
