Advices for 3D : CS4 Engine or PV3D?


I’m coding in AS3 and started looking for 3D rendering with CS4 now that the Z axe is available, I would like to have your advices on weither using CS4 and AS3, or using CS4, AS3 and only the PV3D classes, is their limits with the CS4 ‘3D’ engine ?

Example, I would like to create an imagine gallery I could rotate and make the selected image pops closer to the screen with the other images in the background, is there a way to achieve this only with CS4 ?

Any good tutorial to learn the basic scene, camera, models of PV3D ? I find the official website really complicated.

Thank you!
