As HTML5 video starts to look like an increasingly viable alternative to Flash, Adobe is already thinking ahead—to other perks that can keep Flash in the game, that is. According to CNet News, one of those perks is none other than 3D graphics.
CNet found an interesting session while browsing through the schedule for Adobe's Max 2010 conference, which will kick off on October 23. Here's a screen grab from the schedule applet:
That certainly sounds exciting. Adobe's Thibault Imbert generated additional hype in a blog post last week, too. "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," he teased. "We will share plans with you at Max during this session, I tell you, some serious stuff is coming for 3D developers."
Of course, Adobe isn't the only one working to bring 3D graphics to the web. The Khronos Group—the folks behind OpenGL—created the WebGL working group last March. Since then, we've seen early browser support and a browser-based version of Quake II put together by Google.
