Panoramas

I started making a panorama in Papervision and Hugin, it will be presented soon. I would like to see panoramas made by you. After I will finish making panorama I will expose the code and tutorial. All panorama adresses presented in comments will be forwarded upward at this page.

    Hi Alex,
    I’m Abais (You read me on the Y3D talks)

    I made a panorama player with Away3D few time ago, you can look this page (sorry it’s in french)
    => http://tinyurl.com/yequyg6
    Demo here => http://abais.free.fr/Flash_360_Player/

    If you are interested, tell me :)

    I have some question about AS3 but i don’t know the best place to ask you (in your blog)… For exemple, how can I eradicate an Object ?
    For the moment, i remove his listener 1 by 1, remove all his child and remove it from his parent (with removeChild() too). Does it’s enough ?

    Hi Abais

    To remove a variable or an object you must delete all listeners and all references. Delete references by assigning them to null, like this:

    someReference = null

    Only then the Garbage Collector will remove this object from memory.

    Check this page for detailed info

    Also I would recommend to see this page

    And in Flash 10 Player, there is a System.gc()method, some aditional info about GC can be found here

    Have fun and share your experience here!

    And I dont understand French and most people too. English would be perfect. But thanks for your effort.
