Frima Studio to make use of Molehill 3D Flash technology

Canada-based Frima Studio has been chosen as a participant in the pre-release of Adobe’s new 3D Flash tech Molehill.

Molehill is a set of low-level and GPU-accelerated 3D APIs that enable 3D within the Adobe Flash platform. Adobe has said that GPU hardware acceleration can also be leveraged for ‘significant performance gains’.

“This opens up endless possibilities to creating the next generation in-browser entertainment, where the visual quality is equivalent to console and mobile platforms like iPhone and Wii,” said Frima Studio CEO Steve Couture

“Adobe has called upon the expertise of Frima and we are proud to work in partnership with them on this launch. This opportunity poises Frima to continue strengthening its position as a leading-edge Flash developer.”

Frima has been selected as a participant in the tech pre-release with the intention of collaborating with Adobe on the design of the API, which will then be released to the wider development community in the first half of 2011.
