3D from 2D canvas RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Why not have a 3D from 2D Canvas that would allow:
    1) Add text and give it thickness and shape
    2) Circles become balls
    3) Squares become boxes
    4) Paths become real with z axis.  Objects following path will show shadow and perspective automatically as they get closer or farther away from camera.
    5) All have light and real shadow

    This way, you can get much of the bennefit of 3D without having to import from another tool or use wiremesh.  Just the same 2D objects with gain a Z axis. That would allow easy manipulation and some nice effects that are much harder to simulate today in 2D.
