Flash Player builds with Molehill are now available for everyone to download. Many will want to start playing with this right away and many will probably ask: “What kind of crazy API is this? How do I get started? I don’t get it.”
There are two paths you can take: Either you get one of the available frameworks for Molehill like Away3D or you can take the deep dive and start from scratch. Starting from scratch can be a challenge since the APIs look intimidating at first. Let me give you a head start and provide you a Hello World type Adobe Flash CS 5 project using a famous 3D object: the teapot. From there it should be easier to experiment and explore.
To make it even easier I have added everything you need to get started with Adobe Flash CS 5 into the .zip file. Get the archive here. The most important part is that you need to copy two files into your Adobe CS 5 installation, follow the instruction in the archive.
Once you are all set up and compile the sample code you should end up with this:
Have fun experimenting! Don’t hesitate to ask questions.
