Flash Second Life Clothing Previewer ( runs in the browser! )

Here is a very early proof of concept of a project I have been working on, ( so far it is nameless ) it is a clothing previewer that is written is Actionscript 3 and runs in Flash 9!

This uses Papervision3D 2.0 Alpha – Great White. I use a collada file that I exported from Blender, of an .obj avatar mesh found on the Avatar Databank. This is still in the very early stages, I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet – suggestions wanted! It loads PNG files into layers equivalent to Second Life – like Skin, Undershirt, Shirt, Jacket.

Please get a sneak peak of this project so far which is being tested and is currently a proof of concept.

  1. Oh – this is manna from heaven! This would make clothing design so much easier. Will it be a stand-alone or website driven?

    Looking forward to seeing this.

  2. hi, i am not sure really what i am going to do with this yet. I was thinking of making an stand-alone application in Adobe Air, then also having a viewer that runs in the browser. I am looking for suggestions though!

  3. Would be great to see this as a finished project and is a cross platform solution many people have been looking for too! It looks it would be a lot better way of viewing clothes and skins off line if one could use it that way. You should add a gender toggle. If you added a way to have extra layers that could be merged and saved, then you would have something really handy for the designers. It would be nice to explore options like different lips, etc and then be able to merge them into a skin and save it. Thanks for the preview and I hope you keep working on it.
