In the wake of the Adobe Flash “Molehill” 3D API being unveiled at AdobeMax this year, interest in 3D Flash has exploded.

Yes, I know, it IS awesome. But be patient kids, the word is a painfully vague “mid 2011” beta release. In the meantime, though, start sharpening with your 3D Flash engine of choice because Adobe has already stated that its going to let the community build the engines. And believe me, Away3D, Alternativa, and a handful of others will be waiting with their Molehill-ready engines as soon as it is released.
