Shockwave 3D interface - Macromedia Director 3D

Okay. I'm trying my best to figure out the interface for 3D in Director 11. All I see is camera manipulators. But how do I manipulate the 3D objects? What am I missing? Plugins, etc? Thanks, Brian...

    If it's in the authoring tool you mean you can use ullalas 3DPI
    http://www.3dpi-director.com/ or w3dToolbar http://www.ullala.at/w3dToolbar/.

    In your own applications you are pretty much on your own doing it through
    lingo, although there are plenty of examples out there for example on and

    Thank you for your help. So each of these authoring tools allows me to drag and
    drop objects into the 3D interface?

    Also. Does anyone know why Adobe doesn't have books, dvds, etc to support
    Director 11?

    Well, no. The information text on the sites explains what they do, to get the
    best picture download them and try them out they are easy to use.

    As for doping objects into a w3d sprite, simply put you can't do that unless
    it's a script. All models, textures etc has to be included in the w3d file
    exported from your 3d application. Alternatively you can use lingo to create
    them or clone them from another w3d member. Check the later two links for
    tutorials on this, you'll most likely need to look at these if you want to be
    able to do anything useful in 3d with director.

    As for books, it's rarely the creators of a piece of software that writes
    them, but if there is a demand for books etc someone will make them. And keep
    in mind Director 11 has only been out for a month and a half.
