First of all, I would like to thank Fabrice for this amazing tool, it has become a vital asset in the Away3D production pipeline!

I have a question concerning the export of material parameters to AWD2 format ; I’ve browsed through the forums and didn’t find any related answer.

Basically, I would need to export all the material parameters that Prefab can set (including gloss or specular) to a format that can be loaded at runtime. I’m aware that I can export everything to as3 but then, the generated classes need to be compiled to be used, which is not an option for me… So I would like to ask:
- why aren’t these parameters exported to AWD2? Is it a limitation of the format?
- do I have any other option to achieve my goal?

Glad you like the tool!

It’s indeed not in awd2 spec 2.0. 2.1 should bring changes to this.
missing normalmaps, speculars, methods etc..

For now, in your specific case, only way would be to generate some compagnon awd.xml where these missing params are stored.

Hi Fabrice,

Thanks a lot for your reply. Hopefully, AWD2.1 will come soon, it looks like I’m not the only one waiting for it! smile
