Flare3D Demos compiled using flashdevelop
View all the demo tests here they are great. Please only open one demo at a time, otherwise your computer
will slow down a lot and also it takes a while to load the resources for each one over the internet.
Be patient, the screen may be blank or have no 3d objects on it until it has loaded the resources.

You need at least V11 of adobe flash player to display the above examples.
Here you can
check adobe flash player version
After checking your version if it is not at least V11 (e.g. 18.104.22.168) then here you can
download latest adobe flash player
You may wish to untick the "Mcafee Security Scan Plus" box on the download page.
Installation instructions for Flare3D and FlashDevelop
are available if you want to install the free development
environment to modify the examples and create your own.
of adobe flash player.
is a development IDE supporting Flare3D.
Instructions for getting Flare3D programming development environment to work
are as follows. These steps have been written by myself in June 2012
when I tried to install Flare3D & FlashDevelop and it works.
It's not necessary to do these steps below to view the examples above,
only if you want to modify the source code of the example programs for
- Install java runtime (minimum V1.6)
You can check what version of JRE you are running at
I have installed Java 7 Update 5 and Java 7 Update 5 (64bit),
this is reported by the javatester link as java 1.7.0_05.
Unfortunately the 64bit version does not work.
I got the 64 bit version from:
It's supposed to be "Windows x86 Offline" or "Windows x64"
depending on whether you have a 64 or 32 bit processor.
I picked windows x64. However it didn't work when I tried testing
for java with the www.java.com and javatester.org links above.
If you want java to work I suggest you go to the www.java.com
link above where it says "testjava.jsp" and if java is not installed
it will give you a link you can click to install the latest version.
Using the java.com link seems to cause java to work
with both the javatester.org and java.com testing of java.
It also installs JavaFX 2.1.1 (not sure if this is needed for anything).
So in summary for this step, use the following link:
to test for and install java.
- Install FlashDevelop
Accept default of installing Flex SDK and Air SDK (it will download
and install these).
- Install flashplayer
- Get Flare3D 2.5.17b Beta (for educational and non commercial purposes only)
or whatever the latest version is.
Click on the blue download button, then click on one of the forum
topics for the latest beta release, which will have the download
link for example
Unzip downloaded files to a folder on your hard disk for example
C:\Program Files (x86)\3D\Flare3D\
- Start FlashDevelop software
- Open flare3d.as3proj (this file is in the Flare3D
folder you extracted to)
- Right click on "flare3d (AS3)" in the project
window and select Properties
- In "output" tab, under "Platform", select "Flash Player"
and version "11.0"
- In "output" tab, under "Test Project" select
"Play: External Player" then click OK.
- In "SDK" tab under "Installed SDK(s)" select
"Default (Flex 4.6.0, AIR 3.2) (if not already selected).
Then click OK.
- In project window where file names are listed,
click on the + next to "lib" then right click on
Flare3D_2.5.17b_Beta_Trial.swc and click on "Add to Library"
so that is shows a tick there if you check it again.
- Now that setup is completed then it should be possible to run
- In the project window click on the + next to "examples"
and then right click on Test01_The_Basics1.as and select
- From the menu select Project/Test Project.
- The project should compile and run
- Repeat for any other example project to try out
Then (optional) can try modifying the code and running it again and
see what happens.
