Free RIA tools

Adobe launched simple web site with list of RIA tools available for free.

You can find there more information about free version of Flash Builder.

List is quite small, but do not forget that there are many other useful resources available for free: opensource.adobe.com, riaforge.org, wonderfl.net.

Collajader 0.3 – web preview of Collada format

Update: Collajader 0.2 was released. Check videos below.

Update 2: Collajader 0.3 was released. Added support for orbit camera.

There are several 3D libraries for Flash which are able to display 3D model in RIA application.

Tools like Blender and CAD/CAM software are able to generate Collada format (.dae). Alternativa3D support this format. You can load Collada file directly into application with Alternativa3D.

The only problem of exported model is that it contains a lot of other information that you do not need for rendering.

I created simple tool Collajader which is able to display content defined in Collada format in the web browser. You don’t need to start any 3D software and you can still finetune some details of the model.

Here is small screencast which shows how it works.

Update for version 0.2

You can access application here: Collajader 0.3.

Please, let me know if you find this application interesting.
