As usual, if YouTube or another video site is open in another tab, it is likely that you won’t be able to view the visualization.
This is the first experiment that I’ve done with as3isolib. I was so hopeful when I started working on this a couple of hours ago, only to realize pretty quickly that the library is quite slow. Perhaps it renders bitmap textures faster than the vector primitives, but I have a feeling that the bottleneck is elsewhere. This demo can eek out about 20-25 fps in both full-screen mode and in the browser with high quality rendering and about 40 fps in low quality mode. This just doesn’t seem sufficient for large projects especially given this demo’s simplicity. Press the “s” key to view a performance monitor.
Nonetheless, it was fun to build and I’m hopeful for the next version of as3isolib. It was also a good introduction to isometric geometry and now I’ve got a bug to try something similar in some variety of OpenGL.
