Adobe introduced the future of Flash through an application from AlternativaPlatform

The main flasher event - the Adobe MAX conference - is in full swing. A few minutes ago, Adobe Technical Director Kevin Lynch completed his speech in front of a large audience during a general session with the saying “Welcome to the Revolution”. Adobe first introduced the new Flash player, using for its presentation the application MAX Racing, created by the Russian company AlternativaPlatform. Four years of hard work of the team on the Alternativa 3D engine were not in vain.

One of the main components of the new Flash-player is the 3D API, code-named Molehill, which radically changes the view of Flash applications thanks to 3D hardware support. And although the player is still far from the final release of the player, Alternativa is already working on the Alternativa 3D 8 engine based on it. The central demonstration of the general session was MAX Racing, built on A3D 8 jointly by Alternative and the American studio Mythos Labs.
And the demo definitely made an impression! Imagine the graphics of the level of a modern racing game with reflections, realistic lighting, hundreds of thousands of polygons, frame rates of 60 FPS, with believable physics ... And all this is right in the browser!

However, MAX Racing is just the beginning. At the moment, "Alternative" is working on two full-fledged browser games based on A3D 8, the demo videos of which are continuously spinning at the company's booth at the Los Angeles Exhibition Center.

Technical director Anton Volkov will tell more details about the capabilities of the engine and the new flash player on October 27 in a report on Adobe MAX.

Keep your finger on the pulse of events, so as not to miss the “Revolution”!
