The last version of the coverflow was made several years ago and its still quite popular (over 700,000 downloads on just version 2). So I decided to make a new version, this new version takes advantage of the new Flash 10 3D capabilities, which is perfect for this particular use. It allows for the Flash to load faster (because its not using Papervision3D) and most important preform much faster. Now users can add a lot more items to the coverflow and still have very snappy performance.
Here are the benefits over the previous coverflow version:
- Improved Preformance
- Faster Load Time
- Easy Modification through XML
- AS3 Standardized Code
- Easy Class Structure
And of course you still get many of the benefits of the last version, such as the XML Based (Images, Links and Titles).
So please download it, play with it, make it better and post your code in the comments to help everyone out. Lets make this piece of code the best it can be!Download Flash 10 Coverflow (516.8 KB)
Hope you enjoy and post additions you would like on the next version (I’m thinking of video handling).
