...for the latest OpenFL implementation of Away3D


Away3D for OpenFL


Away3D for OpenFl is a port of the Flash Away3D engine, enabling targetting Flash, Neko, HTML5 and native CPP builds for OSX, Windows, iOS, Android, etc.


  • AGLSL conversion of AGAL code to support OpenGLES.
  • Targets cross platform - web, mobile, desktop
  • Texture mapping with mipmapping
  • Lighting
  • Shadow mapping (in most cases)
  • Model loading: 3DS, AWD, MD5, MD2, DAE
  • Skeleton animation
  • Skinned animation
  • 3D particle system
  • Line drawing (Segments & SegmentSets)


haxelib install away3d

Getting Started

lime create away3d      // To list all of the available examples
lime create away3d:Basic_View      // To install the Basic_View example
lime create away3d:Basic_View /destinationFolder  // To install the example to a specific location

A typical project.xml file would look as follows. Each example in the away3d-examples repository has it's own project.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <meta title="Basic View Away3D OpenFL" package="away3d.examples.BasicView" version="1.0.0" />
    <app main="Basic_View" file="Basic_View" path="Export" />
    <window width="1024" height="700" if="desktop"/>
    <window width="0" height="0" if="html5" />
    <window orientation="landscape" vsync="true" if="cpp"/>
    <window fps="60" hardware="true" allow-shaders="true" require-shaders="true" depth-buffer="true" stencil-buffer="true"  background="#000000"  />

    <haxelib name="away3d" />
    <haxelib name="openfl" />
    <assets path="embeds" exclude="away3d.svg" />

    <icon path="embeds/away3d.svg" />
    <haxedef name="source-map-content" if="html5" />
    <haxedef name="dom" if="html5" />

    <android minimum-sdk-version="10" />


Building Examples

To build an example, 'cd' to the example's folder e.g. Basic_View and use the following.

openfl test <target>     - where target is html5, windows, mac, neko, ios, android, etc

NOTE: When using OpenFL 3.x and the non-html5 targets, please add the -Dlegacy option as Away3D doesn't fully support OpenFL-next for CPP targets as yet.

openfl test mac -Dlegacy


Requires OpenFL 3.x & Lime 2.x (ideally OpenFL 3.5.3 & Lime 2.8.3 or later for both).
