Yup, that is all some fancy-schmancy ActionScripting and some very smart bends and tweens. Also take notice that the "3D" part is almost a sort of vector-like thing... no solids or shading to worry about... it is all outlines. It makes the whole simulating 3D a little easier and more believable. If he were to have kept the full-color from the beginning of the cartoon, then he would have had some frame-by-frame drawing to do... very time-consuming indeed. :black:

Whatever the case, Flash can neither create 3D nor accept any sort of 3D created raw file. Even if you were to model something in say, 3dsMax... it would never import to the library in Flash unless you imported it as a video file... in which case, it really wouldn't be Flash. You also couldn't do anything with it to modify it other than a simple slice footage edit. At the time that example was made, video use in Flash was exteremly limited due to its very poor quality... far below the quality of that example if it were video (which it isn't).
