For an upcoming series of tutorials commissioned by Adobe, I have integrated the incredible WiiFlash (on my Mac with WiiFlashServerJ – thanks to Alan Ross – which is now included with the WiiFlash download) + Papervision3d with a Flash Panel that runs within Photoshop CS4 Extended.
When I rotate my wrist, the roll of the 3d object within the Flash Panel updates and when I click on the A button, the 3d object in a PS 3d layer updates it’s roll position to match it. The same 3d collada file is used in both PV3d and PS.
There’s a lot of potential here. Stay tuned to my blog for an announcement on the tutorials. In the meantime, you can jump into developing your own Flash Plug-ins for Photoshop and Illustrator using the new CSXS SWC library for Flex Builder. More info here.
