Blender to Flash workflow article in Flash&Flex Developer's Magazine


ff_magazine_03_2009If you're looking for information on creating Flash content with Blender, you should check out Dennis Ippel's weblog. He recently got published in the Flash&Flex Developer's Magazine

Dennis writes:

The latest issue of Flash & Flex Developer's magazine features an article written by me called “Blender to Flash Workflow”. This article explains how to:

  • create a simple 3D object in Blender
  • create a material in Blender
  • export the primitive and the material so that it can be used in Flash
  • set up a basic 3D scene using the Sandy 3D engine

You can preview the first page here.

The magazine is sold in stores in the United States and is available in PDF format elsewhere. I received the paper version in my mail yesterday and it looks absolutely great. There are articles for beginners, intermediate and advanced developers. You can find the list of articles here. Highly recommended!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. I gave a simular presentation at the philips high tech campus.
    Its pretty cool, but all still far away from a game engine. I guess I should put more effort in getting something done myself.


  2. Nice, now if I only had Flash. Or if we could export animations and such from blender to a flash file directly. Forget buying flash, just export form Blender. Ah but it's only a dream. Hehe, still very nice. Very informative as well. A joy to read.

  3. Here are some links that might help:


    SDK (either version 3 or 4):


    Tutorials help and books:


    Eyeopener :)

    Last time I tried to post this info, it did not get through. I guess because of the links.
