There are 8 lights moving around the scene and some occluder objects casting the shadows. You can pick a light from the drop down and play with its settings (attenuation, intensity, radius)
Flash Runtimes PM Chris Campbell:
We have made significant improvements and enhancements to the runtime in 2013. If you look at our Flash Player and Adobe AIR feature list you will see that we’ve been keeping busy in 2013 and we expect this trend to continue in 2014! The majority of these new capabilities and enhancements were driven by customer, partner and developer community requests. We’ve also had an active beta program with regularly scheduled releases on an almost monthly basis.
In the end, you need to pick a development platform that meets your needs. If you’re targeting desktop, Android or iOS, we believe AIR makes a very compelling choice. As has been mentioned in the thread, there are a number of community frameworks and ANE’s available to extend and simplify your life as an AS developer. If you need Windows Phones, Windows 8 Modern mode, or another missing feature then AIR might not fit your needs right now. Decisions to support new platforms or implement new features are fluid as community and market changes occur. We’ll continue to evaluate our choices and listen to your feedback.
We’re looking forward to 2014 and our goal of making the runtime better than ever. More importantly, we’re excited to see the games, apps and content that AIR and Flash Player developers create.

Starry Night with Stage3D
During the development i was focus to create a good texture-look feeling, and i learned a lot of things:

- Facing to center
- Facing to screen
- Blur on the edge
In my first attempt to add 3D to my Starling app I struggled with many problems that seemed trivial. I used Starling for a few good years and consider it one of the most powerful 2D frameworks in the industry. Coupled with the Feathers UI library its a winning stack, and it has a vibrant community that provides excellent support.
