I’m frequently asked about when my “Experience Papervision3D” book is coming out. Well the truth is, there is no Papervision3D book and there never was! I was in talks with Apress on behalf of the entire team and we were originally all going to contribute a couple of chapters each.
However talks kinda fizzled out and we decided we didn’t have time to do it. And that was that. Or so I thought! Ever since then, a PV3D book has been on Amazon with my name on it. Despite several requests to Apress to take it down!
So let me set the record straight once and for all – I’m not writing a book for Apress – sorry!
But don’t despair! If you want some PV3D goodness you can now get my video training series from Lynda.com on DVD.

ah , I’ve been periodically checking Lynda.com for a reason to renew my subscription. Been waiting for a papervision series. Silly me for looking under Flash for that series so I didn’t even know it was there. Can’t wait to check it out, I’m renewing right now!
Ha. Apress did the same with me. They listed the book they *wanted* me to write on Amazon over a year ago, and haven’t removed it: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beginning-Generative-Art-Programming-Processing/dp/1430227451
Whereas, Manning, for whom I have actually been writing for the last year, haven’t listed anything yet, even though the book is now in production. Two very different approaches to marketing.
Think they do jump the gun a bit when it comes to publishing their upcoming titles. We’ve had a book in discussion which was later cancelled, were never under contract though is still up on Amazon with a cover design.
I recently finished your tutorial at Lynda.com and just after got the great news that Molehill is out to start testing in incubator, and will be supported by Away 3D and others.
Now, my question is… What about Papervision? Is there planed any new release or further development. I haven’t found any news about this in the blog, and what I have read on the web makes me think that Papevision hanged the coat.
Can you inform us a little about what’s happening in Papervision and if there is some planed development, and/or Molehill implementation.
