View Full Version : Shockwave

01-18-2007, 06:22 PM

A client wants me to create a 3d interface that involves rendering a video on a 3d 'wall' that rotates in realtime. As far as I know, at present Flash can only render video in 2d, so I was advised to use Director and publish in Shockwave. I am a little worried that not many of the users of the site will have Shockwave installed.

Does anybody know the usage statistics for shockwave - ie. what percentage of people use shockwave?

Otherwise, any suggestions on how I can achieve the above using flash?
