    Ouch! This example are so bad. They do more harm than good to MS Expression. They are really slow and clumsy. Don’t try to convince any Flash designer by showing this stuff.

    I supose beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beautiful or not, they do express the technical abilities of ZAM 3D and the MS Expression Suite. As a Flash designer myself I am quite convinced that these tools will have a bright future and I look forward to watching them take shape. I’m sure that as time goes on we will recieve more creative and compelling examples from our users (I’ve got a few up my sleeve as well). So, patience my child, the crazy mad skillz will be displayed in due time, 🙂 cheers!

    Thanks Jim. Needless to say, the Expression team loves these samples and we’re very much looking forward to showing off the ones you have in the pipeline.
