I am a novice using Flash 8 and would like to rotate a camera, similar to what this company is doing on their website: http://motophoto.com/content_demo/window.php3

I do believe I must take some pictures of my digital camera, as it sits on a rotation table, and capture all the different angles to get the desired effect.

My questions are:

1-Am I correct?

2-If I am correct, is there any place I can go on the web to either get these types of shots, or better yet, is there a website that I can go to and either purchase or get the editable flash file for free, so I can make what ever changes I want to do to that flash file?

I am trying to avoid having to create this from scratch. I have been surfing the web for a few days now and have not found anything.

Help from anyone would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot!:)

Its not easy. I don't know of such template. This may give you a start though: http://www.kirupa.com/developer/actionscript/3dexplore.htm

Also you may want to just email them ask them how they did it or if you can purchase their .fla file.

They used separate pictures to rotate the camera. A lot of those type of animations (obviously not this one) use 3D applications to generate those shots. Try searching for some 3D Studio Max templates or animations.
