"The one thing I'd complained about early on was that Molehill left 3D to the egg-heads who loved being the only ones who could use it. As I've said before - until you bring it to a state of usability by the masses, it's pointless and will largely be fruitless. In other words, I felt that if the new 3D capabilities weren't put in the hands of us lesser-folk through a common interface and language, it wasn't going to go anywhere except for demoscene reels on YouTube. Enter in Unity, and you just fixed all of that."
It's not pointless. Adobe clarified at Max 2010 that the Molehill API is for the 3D engine/framework developers, it was never targeted at the standard Actionscript developer. They mentioned they were possibly going to create an API for Flash designers and developers, but for the most part, Molehill is for the likes of third party 3D framework developers like Away3D and Alternativa3D. With those frameworks already targeting Molehill and building off it, the masses are not left out of Molehill's capabilities to tap into hardware acceleration. So Unity or not, the average Flash guy would still have Molehill made accessible by third party 3D frameworks.
