Why is the texture of my DAE file not loading?

If you wondering why the texture of your DAE file is not shown in Papervision nameconflicts can be the reason:

Go into you DAE file, look for the ‘symbol’  attribute in the  <instance_material … > Tag and compare the value with the one you assigned to the name parameter in your addMaterial() statement.

‘symbol’ attribute value in dae file == ‘name’ parameter in addMaterial() method


Event handler for onComplete Event not dispatch in TimelineMax

It took me some time to realize, that if you set the autoRemoveChildren property in your TimeLineMax instance to “true” all events e.g. the onComplete event wont be dispatched. So if you wonder why your coresponding handlers dont get called, check the autoRemoveChildren property!

Why i dont see my RigidBody object …

I was wondering why i dont see my RigidBody object in my jiglib physicalized Papervision3D scene.

var visualObject:DAE = new DAE(“elipsoide.dae”);
var visualObjectMesh:P3DMesh = new P3DMesh(visualObject);
var physicalObject:RigidBody = new JSphere(visualObjectMesh, 10);

var physics:Papervision3DPhysics = new Papervision3DPhysics(scene, 10);
physics.addBody(physicalObject);

Who has the answer?

I forgot to add the visualObject to the scene:

var visualObject:DAE = new DAE(“elipsoide.dae”);
scene.addChild(visualObject);
var visualObjectMesh:P3DMesh = new P3DMesh(visualObject);
var physicalObject:RigidBody = new JSphere(visualObjectMesh, 10);

var physics:Papervision3DPhysics = new Papervision3DPhysics(scene, 10);
physics.addBody(physicalObject);

So always remember – the visualObject is the “visual” representation of the physicalObject – while the physicalObject is the “physical” representation of the visualObject. Sounds logic but i had to make this clear to me….

So the answer to my question must be:
You can’t see a RigidBody object!


How to embed a COLLADA (.dae) file into swf?

Just simply as you would embed other sources in Flash:

[Embed (source=”assets/yourColladaFile.dae”,mimeType=”application/octet-stream”)]
private var Model:Class;

var myDAE:DAE = new DAE();
myDAE.load(new Model());

thats it!
