Hi, Away3d Team, I want to build a Product Portfolio Using some style like Solar Sytem ,But I have Some Troubles using Away3d Broomstick: to draw and display any kind of orbit(round or oval) using the “3-points” bezier curve , i mean, i need to draw a pure curve , but not tiny circular tube (if i use such tiny circular tube ,when the camera get close , it’s not a line… )

2. Animation Texture projects on specific surface area, i want to project a logo with animation on some specific area of the Sphere surface (some kind of movieclip, or videoclip,png file…etc), i need a Cylinder Projection Method to project a video or movie clip material with alpha channel on the sphere surface.

Would you please show me to how to do that ?

For 1,
Can try the SegmentSet class, it uses flat shading for LineSegments. Also, a tube is gonna look like a line, from any angle, if you give it flat shading. It’s going to have perspective though. I don’t know if LineSegments scale/shrink with distance
