View Full Version : Help with Flash text effect

Mar 17th, 2005, 12:48 AM
I have a client that wants a flash effect that takes 5 letters and loads them sequentially. Each letter is to rotate 360 degrees on the horizontal plain prior to the next letter loading.

So far this requirement seemed not so bad...

What has got me is that they would like the letters to appear 3D. I am not a skilled Flash developer, I am intermediate at best...If anyone has any experience doing similar effects please offer me some advice...

Thanks in advance

I once had such a requirement. You can photoshop the letters, add some 3d effects and make them gifs with transparent backgrounds. Although it still doesn't look like the real thing. Your best bet would be Macromedia Director. Don't know much about it but I know it can be used for 3d text

Take a look at www.swift3d.com.

They have a product called Swift 3D (believe it or not) which will help you create 3D effects quite easily.
