Inside the Away3D primitives package, among numerous primitives, there is also one called
TextField3D. It is quite different from the rest mainly because its form is 2D, which can be manipulated in a three dimensional world. In the following example you will learn how to set up a dynamic text with
TextField3D and how to add to its shape a third dimension.
TextField3Duses embedded fonts only. We will prepare an
swfresource file with our font embedded into it. Open Adobe Flash; type some dynamic text right on the stage so that when compiling
swf, it would contain the font data.
