JSAway - 3D Graphics through JavaScript

by Greg Caldwell (Greg209) JSAway - 3D Graphics through JavaScript

JSAway is a spin-off of Away3D which provides web developers access to the high performance graphics capabilities of the engine, through JavaScript. Currently based of V2.0, JSAway exposes implementations of the API and provides other supporting functionality to allow complex scenes to be created and animated providing full interaction between the web page and the 3D scene. JSAway is still in early development but from the examples, you can easily see it's potential in opening up 3D on the web to different community. All the examples use the same single SWF file, while the underlying web page's JavaScript code controls what is going on. Some of the features of JSAway.

  • JavaScript only - no ActionScript knowledge required.
  • simple command reference exposes huge range of features
  • all API basic primitives can be used
  • basic 3D event handling
  • filter based effects on objects
  • simple custom tweening operations
  • simple bitmap manipulation, get/set pixel and draw bitmap
  • getting/setting of object properties
  • material handling
  • content (materials and 3D models) loading - bitmaps, sketchup, dae.....
  • powerful features including lathe, extrudes, elevations, etc are supported
  • custom tweening of object properties
  • various automatic camera functions - object tracking, panning, etc
  • simple mouse navigation controls - rotation and twisting the scene based on mouse movement

Hello, congratulations for the big work. i want to make some questions:
- i love make my 3d models and animate it with 3ds max. ¿ is posible load animated 3ds max models inside the away3d engine and play these animateds models. ?
- ¿ is supported 3d max models with texture mappings in away3d engine ?

Thanks and keep the great work.

You can load fully textured 3ds files, but not .max files. However at this point of development, the 3ds parser do not support animation.

Yes, development of JSAway is still continuing - but currently at a slow pace as other things keep getting in the way. I will endeavour to get an update out soon - it's definitely long overdue. Please be patient and I do apologies for not keeping moving for a while. Greg

With the onset of HTML5 capable browsers and IE's support of canvas, will we see continued development on this project? Looking for a good 3D library for javascript
