How can you rotate shapes in flash4

How can you rotate shapes in flash4

Rotating objects in 2D is simple via the transform tab, but how is it possible to rotate in 3D?? Is complex programming involved here.

http://www.matinee.co.uk/fr_nmd.htm is a fantastic example.

RE: How can you rotate shapes in flash4

Hello, I'm fairly new to Flash myself, but this has cropped up once or twice within my work. Basically using an animated .gif, each frame of animation is then traced by the program itself (trace bitmap) or manually. There are some programs like Xara3D that rotate text, the file created can then be imported into flash as a frame set of .gifs. I hope I haven't misread you're question and you are quite right, Matinee is a fantastic example!

RE: How can you rotate shapes in flash4

Would Macromedia's Freehand package have anything to do with Matinee's 3D renderings? I haven't used the package myself, but it Macromedia's write-up it does mention 3D layering.

Metro, you're probably right. The 3D text on Matinee's site does look like something done in Cool3D or something like that.
