In addition to the features mentioned in the Silverlight 2 section, the following are the key enhanced features in Silverlight 3 Beta: • Improved graphics capabilities to support a richer and more interactive user interface. • Support for 3D graphics enables designers to apply 2D content to a 3D plane with Perspective transforms. You can simulate live content rotation in the 3D space by applying the Perspective transform to the proper XAML elements. To achieve this functionality, developers do not need to write a single line of code.
Animation easing allows users to generate impressive animation effects using the different animation easing functions available by default, such as BounceEase, ElasticEase, CircleEase, BackEase, ExponentialEase, and SineEase. You can also create your own custom, complicated, mathematical-formula-based animation effects. • Pixel Shaders drive the visual behavior of the graphical content. By default, Silverlight 3 supports drop-down and blur effects. You can create custom effects using Microsoft’s High-Level Shading Language (HLSL) and DirectX Software Development Kit (SDK).
This enhancement helps organizations to apply, maintain, and control a consistent look and feel for applications. • Improved text rendering enables efficient rendering and rapid animation of text. The use of local fonts improves overall application performance. Bitmap caching allows Vector graphics, text, and controls to be cached as bitmaps in the background, improving overall application-rendering performance. • Bitmap APIs enable dynamic generation of bitmaps by reading and writing pixels in the bitmap.
