Flash 3D primed for late 2010

Adobe confirms plans to take its video three dimensional

Plans teased in official blog but details being kept under wraps until October.

Adobe isn’t letting its increasingly tiresome battle with Apple get in the way of serving up some big news today. The team behind Flash have confirmed that it’s working on a 3D version of the video software, which will be outed in full in October.

Speaking via an official blog post, Adobe’s Thibault Imbert said, “If you are into 3D development for games, augmented reality or just interactive stuff like websites, you just can't miss the session entitled Flash Player 3D future scheduled for Max 2010.”

Max 2010 is Adobe’s big developer get together, kicking off on 27 October. Imbert goes on to say that while he can’t serve up details, Adobe’s plans are “big”. 3D video and Flash games will of course mean needing new three dimensional gadgets to make them play nice, so best get saving.

Is this enough to give Adobe the edge in its video wars? Mouth off on our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
