Stg: References to flash stage because we are going to assign listeners to it from within the class. 3. height: It is the camera distance from the ground. We imply here that the ground is at 0,0,0. 4. gravity: Gravity force for jump. 5. JumpStep: Jump altitude. Next we define listeners for mouse UP and DOWN states as well as events for registering input from A,W,D,S keyboard keys to be able to move the FPSController in four different directions. In the onMouseDown() event handler, we update the old pan, tilt the previous mouseX and mouseY values as well as by assigning the current values when the mouse has been pressed to _oldPan, _oldTilt, _oldMouseX, and _oldMouseY variables accordingly.

PB materials are divided into two groups in this case. Regular PB materials such as PhongPBmaterial, DiffusePBMaterial, FresnelPBMaterial, and SpecularPBMaterial use just one single light source which must be of the type PointLight3D. If you wish to apply shading from several light sources, you should use the MultiPass materials type such as PhongMultiPassMaterial, SpecularMultiPassMaterial, and so on. Notice that when using MultiPass material, you can also add a DirectionalLight3D light source.

However, if you see that after implementing all the configurations mentioned previously, you keep receiving sandbox security errors, then this hack is your last hope. Interpolating material color dynamically with DepthBitmapMaterial The Away3D material bank has got one interesting material called DepthBitmapMaterial. The purpose of this material is to add a diffuse color to the bitmap texture of the material so that the amount of fill for that color depends on the minimum and maximum z-coordinate of the mapped object.
