Will flashpanoramas take advantage of this?

@tonnes, you was faster, here is the link to Adobe:


# Enhancements to full-screen mode to use hardware scaling for improved video performance and quality on systems running Windows 2000 and newer or Mac OS X 10.2 and newer.
# Faster rendering of vector graphics on multi-core CPUs.
# Higher quality and performance for downscaling large bitmaps (SWF 9 only).

Is this these kind of hardware acceleration that is used in the SPi-V viewer from Aldo Hoeben?

Denis, any news on whether flashpanoramas will take advantage of hardware support?

I could be wrong, but FPP would probably take advantage of hardware acceleration _by default_ when the Flash Player/Plugin does.

I installed the beta Flash 9 (9,0,60,184) and viewed several flashpanoramas but they appear the same - no antialiasing (like Spi-V or DevalVR).

Other flash pano implementations are from Immervision and Pano2VR from gardengnomesoftware.com. I've asked the question on their forums also.

Yes, FPP supports hardware acceleration by default, I adapted v2.2 to increase this effect. New multi core vector renderer and filters acceleration work very well with FPP's features as well. :)
Also I'm preparing new interesting plugin for FPP 2.2 to tune users's quality setting. It will have a possibility to change the antialiasing quality automatically if you have a hardware accelertion in the player. :)
