This is being researched, but as you are aware we are a group of volunteers so it’s sometimes hard to find the time for research of complex features like this. If you or your company desperately needs it for your production, please consider donating or hiring one of the core developers on a consultancy basis to implement the feature. This is how many of the features in Away3D were first conceived, e.g. some of the extrusion tools, the path animator, the AWD2 file format and the AssetLibrary.

If you just want to draw straight lines, or curves made up of straight lines, then I believe there are some classes in Away4 (albeit in an early state) that you can already use.

Hi guys,
Is there any update about the progress on this?
I’m porting a small drawing application from 3.6 to 4 and just started to mess with Path in v4.

What about loaders.swf package from 3.6 can you update it to work with away3d 4?
Really it’s very nice tool and ease of use, and this tool is already can parse vector shapes or graphics from flash movieclip’s directly.
why it’s removed from away3d 4 !!!!!!!!!!
It well be very nice if you bring this class to life again.

Many thanx
