StackFlow > Features

  • Powered by PaperVision3D

    The StackFlow component uses the popular 3D engine for Flash, PaperVision3D 2, for creating real 3D perspective.

  • Live Preview

    The Live Preview feature allows you to visualize, at design time, how the component will be rendered while changing different properties in the Component Inspector.

  • XML Support

    The component features XML support that allows you to update its data without having to republish the SWF file. For example, you could add or remove images in the component just by editing the XML file.

    You can also load YouTube videos by simply specifying the ID of the video in the XML file or using Actionscript code. Click here to see an example.
