Papervision3D (3D in Flash) blog post talks about the importance of COLLADA format parsing


&#;Recently, we&#;ve had the opportunity to play around with Papervision3D - a full blown open-source 3D engine for Flash. The simplicity and power of the engine are amazing (especially in AS3), but what really explains its recent popularity is the ability to parse COLLADA data. In other words, Papervision3D allows Flash Developers to work closely with 3D artists that could export low-poly models and environments directly from Max and Maya.&#; Also see the Papervision 3D blog for more COLLADA details.

Whitepaper on &#;Developing Web Applications with COLLADA and X3D&#;


COLLADA and X3D are two royalty-free open standards that use XML schema technology to represent 3D content. This whitepaper will assist developers in understanding the similarities and differences between COLLADA and X3D, the design goals that informed their development, and how and where the two standards can be used together as a powerful tool set for developing Web and enterprise applications.

Photoshop CS3 Extended to support COLLADA model import and texture editing


Adobe announced Photoshop CS3 Extended which will allow designers to leverage the Photoshop image editing toolset and paint engine when editing 3D content including COLLADA format models. This means that artists can can perform 3D model visualization and texture editing and see the result on the 3D model all within Photoshop and then update the 3D models using the edited textures (that are saved back to disk). This also offers a new tool for Google Earth users, since they can now take their 3D model from Sketchup, and paint on it using Photoshop, before uploading it to Google Earth, all in the same COLLADA format.

Free intent GamePlayer Application Development Kit with OpenKODE support enables binary portability


The intent GamePlayer Application Development Kit (ADK) offers an implementation of OpenKODE with OpenGL ES and EGL It enables game developers rapid development of their code and deployment across all of the industry&#;s major CPU architectures and devices including X86 and ARM and peripheral silicon support such as graphics acceleration. Using the ADK, you can deliver a single binary ubiquitously across the industry&#;s architectures enabling game applications to run at native speed across different platforms, irrespective of the hardware and across both open and closed operating systems. It also supports over-the-air deployment, even on &#;closed&#; platforms that are not normally capable of over-the-air deployment of native content. This initial launch of the ADK is a BETA version. An upgrade, ADK is expected to replace this by the end of March. The download is available at no charge.

(Archives) Adobe Photoshop CS3: Using the Quick Selection Tool

Last updated

This article is based on legacy software.

The Quick Selection tool uses a brush tip to select parts of images. This powerful tool is useful for selecting the parts of an image which require great precision to reach.

From this NASA image, you can see how precise your selecting can be with the Quick Selection tool.

Selecting the Image

As you drag the brush across the image, the Quick Selection tool presumes the content of your selection by adding parts of the image which have similar colors. The edges of the selection are created by excluding parts with contrasting color. These rules are amended when the brush passes over contrasting colors.

  1. If the Toolbox does not appear, from the Window menu, select Tools.
    The Toolbox appears.

  2. On the Toolbox, click Quick Selection Tool.
    If the Quick Selection Tool does not appear, on the Toolbox, right click Magic Wand Tool » select Quick Selection Tool.

  3. To change the size of the Quick Selection brush,
    Press [[ ] or [ ] ].
    From the Objects toolbar, click the next to Brush Size.
    In the Diameter section, move the slider to the desired brush size.
    NOTE:The brush size is measured in pixels.
  4. Click and drag the mouse to make your desired selection.
    As you drag the mouse, the tool presumes the edges of your selection based on nearby contrasts of color.

Adding & Subtracting Content

Once you have made a selection, you can use the Quick Selection tool to add or remove content based on nearby contrasts of color.

  1. Within your image, make a selection.
    Your image must be selected in some way before adding or subtracting from that selection.
    The selection does not need to be selected with the Quick Selection tool; any selecting tool will work.

  2. On the Toolbox, click Quick Selection Tool.
    If the Quick Selection Tool does not appear, in the Toolbox, right click Magic Wand Tool » select Quick Selection Tool.

  3. To add content to your selection, from the Objects toolbar, click Add to Selection.
  4. On the image, click and drag the mouse.
    The area is added to your initial selection.
  5. To subtract content from your selection, from the Objects toolbar, click Subtract from Selection.
  6. On your selection, click and drag the mouse.
    The area is removed from your selection.
